Wikipedia should do these complete edit locks
more often, TBH. For the
sake of Wikipediholics like me, and so admins can catch up with
reports and backlogs in peace.
Point of order. This is not an edit-lock. You are thinking from the
perspective of an editor. This is a reader lock-out as well (though
really, those that know enough to use mirrors or caches or disable
mis-reported in the press as those in the know not being
inconvenienced but everyone else being locked out from reading
Not sure if it's a serious suggestion but
it's just a thought I had.
It's a nice idea, but there are several problems with that. Firstly,
how to handle urgent edits that still need to be made. Secondly, how
to restrict editing disablement to just article namespace (which is
what would be needed to allow other stuff to carry on as normal). I
don't think it would ever really happen.
