    Why are all the pages protected?

    I was just browsing the wiki and found the entry for my BJJ school here:

    http://www.bullshido.org/martialarts...lian_Jiu_Jitsu

    I was going to update it because some of the brown belt instructors are now black belts and a couple other instructors have their own school now, but the page is protected so I can't change anything. In fact, every page I have viewed the source for is protected so I can't edit anything. Also yes, I am logged in when I'm trying to do this.

    edit: ok I just found a page which says I have to be a supporting member to contribute but that just doesn't make sense to me. I understand why you have the supporting member system (to pay for server bills etc) and that's cool, I might even become a supporting member in the future if I post more and have some extra cash, but why should I have to pay to be able to contribute to the wiki? if you want an unbiased repository of information from a wide range of sources I'd suggest letting anyone contribute, instead of just members who are already into bullshido enough to support it financially.

    We do this to protect it from vandalism...however, we're considering making the requirement 100 posts on here instead of a supporting membership.

    well, if you do that, I'll probably make my next 50 posts a lot faster than the 2 years it took me to post my first 50 =)
