Description:
It's very easy for sysops to edit through page protection by accident, not realizing it's protected. There is a note, but it's easy to slip up.

A small request - could the background color of the entire edit box and edit summary box be changed to a light shade of red or something, if the page is protected? To make it impossible to miss? For a tiny change I think it'd avoid mistakes.

Thanks!

Perhaps simply an alternate CSS class could be used on the editbox on protected pages.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
