Protected pages editable in Wikibooks
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Author: kelvSYC

Description:
It seems that anons and non-admins are able to circumvent page protection in
Wikibooks, given the vandalism that repeatedly occurs in [[b:Main Page]],
despite the fact that the page is protected. This is perhaps a very serious
wikisecurity concern...

The Main Page of the English Wikibooks is only protected against page moves, not
editing. If you want it really protected, you or another admin will need to
protect it without selecting the "protect from page moves" box.
