Should this page be full protected? Obviously all the custodians should have it watchlisted, but no one other than a custodian has ever edited it. Salmon of Doubt 11:44, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

  • The idea of the complex protection system on the various main page templates was to leave this particular page semi-protected only so that ordinary users can add news items. This page should only be fully protected if it becomes a repeated target for vandalism, which is not yet the case. --McCormack 12:07, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Possible use of dynamicpagelist[edit]

So, if I follow current custom, Main Page/News would appear something like:


I'm confused. You wrote that "It would be great to have five to six things to put in the news each week instead of five to six for three to four months!" Are you also wanting to maintain this manually rather than using DynamicPageList to do the updates automatically? If you are working manually, there is no reason to list IT Fundamentals again, as it is only on the DynamicPageList due to vandalism. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 23:40, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
Originally I was intending to try to maintain this subpage manually. Your use of dynamicpagelist suggests that at least this part could be automated. But there appears to be no easy way to include what the resources are, their approximate dates of completion and intended targets. I also wanted to include those News items that are not in that specific category. Combining the two in an automated way would really be great! --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 02:11, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

Earlier unannounced completed resources[edit]

These would currently have been updated or improved:
