To trigger cascading protection of a Commons media file:

  1. Add its name to the list below. Use the following format: File:Example.jpg | Description
  2. Protection will not take effect instantly. This typically occurs within minutes, but it could take longer.
  3. Only transclude a file on the main page when KrinkleBot has transcluded it at Commons:Auto-protected files/wikipedia/en.
  4. Do not remove the previous file from the list when adding a new image. Keeping it in the list ensures that it remains protected and ready to reuse if its replacement is removed from the main page.
