Slovenia page[edit]

Here is my answer to your question. Yes, admins can protect the page if we see an edit war or repetitive vandalism attempts. However, I suggest to take some other steps first. Please use the Slovenia Talk Page and try to come to a consensus with the IP address who keeps on changing your edits. This is what talk pages are for. Explain your position. You can also contact the other user via his/ her Talk Page. If after that the edit war becomes severe and discussion on talk pages isn't working, we might consider protecting the page. I hope this helps. We assure you that we will also keep an eye on Slovenia page and make sure that all the information written there is constructive and appropriate. Please let me know if you have more questions. Warm regards,IBAlex (talk) 15:55, 3 July 2013 (EDT)

If you google check the IPs that are putting this nonsense into the page you will see that all of these IPs are known spambots, f.e.: , so unless these IPs are banned or the page is put into half-protected mode, they will continue indefinitely, which makes the page unusable.

Ok, Sloth, thank you! If the IP addresses continue to engage in the edit war, I will protect the page. In a meantime, I strongly suggest to start a discussion on Slovenia Talk Page as from what I noticed there are many user who would like to express their opinion. Thank you!
