           Summary: Protecting LiquidThreads talk pages
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: LiquidThreads
        AssignedTo: agarr...@wikimedia.org
        ReportedBy: federicol...@tiscali.it


Looks like there isn't a way to protect (or semiprotect) completely a talk page
with LiquidThreads, e.g. an archived talk: even if you use [edit=sysop]
[move=sysop] [newthread=sysop] [reply=sysop] [cascading] , users will be able
to edit existing replies (but not to summarize threads, if my test was
correct).
I haven't tried all the other possibile actions, but I think that at least
cascading protection (or something similar) should block them all.

Otherwise, it's impossible to protect pages from vandalism and even from good
faith edits; while currently, if you archive a page, you put the archive in
your watchlist and if someone edits it you will see it immediately; with
threads it isn't so easy, although I don't remember if watchlisting a talk page
will watchlist every included thread).
