Read the instructions in their entirety before proceeding.In the interest of preventing high-profile vandalism, it's important that this procedure be handled properly. Please don't use this page unless you're 100% certain that you understand how it functions. Raise any questions or concerns on the talk page.
To trigger cascading protection of a Commons media file:
- Add its name to the list below. Use the following format: File:Example.jpg | Description
- Protection will not take effect instantly. This typically occurs within minutes, but it could take longer.
- Only transclude a file on the main page when KrinkleBot has transcluded it at Commons:Auto-protected files/wikipedia/en.
- 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.
