Wikipedia Question

Hi. I'm just wondering when did this whole "new user can't edit wikipedia article of Livejournal until September 30" thing started. I've been out of the loop for a bit, and am just wondering if it was because users are putting the drama on there and people from SA were deleting it or did something else happen post that whole thing that I missed.


Probably just too many people trying to edit the page, so they had to implement some sort of moderation (whether it's users vs. users or users vs. 6A).
Its not uncommon, actually. They put up locks like that to prevent edit wars. Especially over the latest shit LJ has stirred up, it probably happened. Check the talk page for more (if you haven't already).
