page locks should not be allowed because there is often better info without page locks —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 66.112.118.212 (talkcontribs).

On this wiki, pages are protected for various reasons. Many are protected, because new or unregistered users repeatedly add incorrect information. We try to combat this by adding "notes" to the text, but as most new and unregistered user do not edit in source, they do not see the notes. For example, Battle of the Department of Mysteries has been protected off and on, because users continually try to add that Sirius Black was killed with the Killing Curse.
Other pages are protected because of edit warring, where two or more users repeatedly change a page to say what they thin it should say. This is counterproductive to the credibility of this wiki and the spirit of open editing. Lastly, many articles are protected, because of excessive vandalism. Every protected article was protected for a reason. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 19:02, August 23, 2010 (UTC)
