As I continually watch the activity on the wiki for vandalism, I see that a common target for vandalism is categories. You can see here that a majority of edits to category pages are made by anonymous or new users that are either blatant vandalism or bad edits that are reverted. I propose a simple solution of just semi-protecting all category pages so that new and anonymous users can't edit them (no regular editors should be effected by this). It's kind of a big change, so I thought a forum was necessary. My thought is that we obviously spend more time editing these pages for vandalism than actually editing them, and new editors rarely start on category pages. Is everyone ok with this?
