[Part of this discussion was moved to Talk:Main page#Reorganization. -- Kynikos (talk) 07:46, 14 January 2018 (UTC)]

About the page protection, unfortunately MediaWiki doesn't allow specificying what user groups can perform edits, the choice is only among all, only autoconfirmed or only admins. However the protection was added in 2016 for vandalism, but I wouldn't mind lifting it now, we should have enough staff around at the moment to watch the changes, what do the other admins think? Of course non-trivial changes must be discussed in any case. -- Kynikos (talk) 15:09, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

For protection part I wanted to make some changes related to Team Reorganization which would probably involve some number of small edits to this and other Help articles merging not team-specific help (like diy, fixing double redirects, etc). I can do my userspace version of this page instead in any case, but that is more work for me and for you. -- Svito (talk) 19:55, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
As there is no interest on topic in 2 months I will propose my changes through discussions as the need occurs. Closing discussion. -- Svito (talk) 17:06, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
If you can split your big plan in smaller patches and present one at a time it's definitely going to make it easier for us to review them :) When ready I don't see any problem with removing the protection temporarily to let you apply the changes. As far as I'm concerned, I'm currently only focused on Help_talk:Discussion#How_to_manage_discussions and won't discuss any other big project before I make something functional enough out of that. -- Kynikos (talk) 16:03, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
