Can we lock it down?

Based on my experience running various wikis, I'd lock the main page down as well.

Main Page changes require community discussion

Two times in the last 10 days or so I have been forced to revert changes to the Main page. I wanted to be clear with any Wiki editors that while we do want people to be bold and edit what they know needs updating, any stylistic or opinion based changes should be proposed through this forum first. In the case of the [[Main page]], there is virtually nothing on that page that should be changed without a discussion here due to the visibility with the entire Waze community.

I can and then only the Wiki Experts have the power to make changes. That might be a good idea anyway since it is the top viewed page and should not change much.

I have locked it down and added a link to the talk page bringing users back to this forum thread.
