Some users on the English Wikipedia wish to semiprotect root/base user pages for all users. Semiprotection is currently defined as disallowing edits by users who are not autoconfirmed. Autoconfirmed is set when a user reaches 10 edits and 4 days since user registration.
Currently, if user root/base user pages were all suddenly semiprotected, very new users would not be able to edit their own user pages until becoming autoconfirmed.
