Wikipedia:Main Page/Commons media protection

Administrator instructions

To trigger cascading protection of a Commons media file, add its name to the list below. Use the following format: File:Example.jpg | Description

Please note that the protection will not take effect instantly. Do not transclude a file on the main page until confirming that KrinkleBot has transcluded it at Commons:Auto-protected files/wikipedia/en. This typically occurs within minutes, but it could take longer.

When adding a new image, do not remove the previous file from the list. Keeping it in the list ensures that it remains protected and ready to reuse if its replacement is removed from the main page.
