User:Davidgothberg/DO NOT DELETE or unprotect items protected by this page, not even if it is an image that has a backup copy on Commons

User:Davidgothberg/Lockbox redirects here and can be used as a short name for this page. The new longer name of this page is experimental, I might move this page back to the shorter name.

Cascade protected images

This page is cascade protected so that the images listed here are protected even if they are accidentally deleted. Thus vandals can not upload a rude image during that time. This also protects the images after they have been restored, since admins often forget to re-protect the images after they have restored them.

Admins sometimes delete protected images by accident, or because they think we don't need them since they exist on Commons. But images are usually locally uploaded and protected here at the English Wikipedia since they are used in an interface message or in some widely used template. Thus these images are high-use and high-risk.

Images I know from high-risk templates and from MediaWiki interface messages:
