Usage

Depending on template used:

  • The most appropriate one of the above message boxes templates should be applied to any article/section that is protected.
  • Or, alternatively, and only where preferable, use the appropriate lock (in the upper right-hand corner) template of the article/section.

Notes

  • Applying one of the above templates does not protect the article/page – that must be dome separately.
  • Only administrators should apply (or remove) a lock.
