+1 for Julie's reply.

I noticed that some Wikidata pages are semi-protected, e.g., Barack Obama. Perhaps, this can be a solution for Biyanto Rebin?

How big a problem is fact vandalism? It may be less likely to be detected/fixed in languages for which there are fewer editors. Only if a big problem, I'd suggest that specific text (not whole articles) be protected, but not locked. Eg implementing a requirement for confirmation by multiple editors before it is published. A lock would be too likely to thwart legitimate edits and could be abused by moderators.

Some ostensibly hard facts do in fact change over time. Even the measurement of the mass of the electron took years to perfect.

Wikidata is a great collaboration of database, I love it, but sometimes when I encounter some vandalism, it makes me so angry. Just like today, I've found Q879704, the label, description and alias in Indonesian (ID) is vandal into something else and it was happened in 2014

Now, I'm just curious, will everyone agree if (maybe) in the future Wikidata team can lock some cell that already fix? For example Javanese (Q33549) = P31: language (Q315). Or we just let the Wikidata always open for everyone to edit? 

PS: I'm making WikiProjects Languages in Indonesia, anyone who want to join please let me know :)
