Some Wikipedia entries are locked, and that is shown by a closed padlock, but the majority are open. The locked ones tend to be major subjects like, say, Paul McCartney. But locked subjects are generally locked by request of the object of the subject.

Sorry, you're right. What I meant was that you had to reach a certain trusted level before you could edit certain articles. It is often the case that the subject requests that. I have altered, I think, 4 articles in all, without challenge to anything I have entered. I would need at least another 6 without challenge to possibly alter "Paul McCartney" in any way. Some entries, and I wouldn't be surprised if McCartney's wasn't one, require many more edits without challenge before you can change them. It's a strange thing, and a good thing, you need to work your up through the levels. I'm the bottom rung still.

EDIT: Paul, having looked at the protection fully, I am sure would be covered by this, which spells out that certain topics ARE locked: "Administrators may apply indefinite semi-protection to pages that are subject to heavy and persistent vandalism or violations of content policy (such as biographies of living persons, neutral point of view)."

I think Warwick Avenue and Rain on your parade were alright, but I REALLY hate Mercy. 

And I just don't like her voice in general.

Here´s a Q and A with Paul that I just read, dont know if anyone is interested....

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Weird but interesting. Sounds like a live African Hello, Goodbye coda.

Hello, Goodbye coda.

Close.  They're chanting "Hela Hela!" (with the legendary Cuban conga drummer Francisco Aquabella (1925-2010) chanting lead stuff) which, however, I can't find in my Spanish dictionary.  I think it might mean "Alas!" but not sure.  Anyway, it's the Latin rock group Malo (lead guitarist is Jorge Santana, brother of Carlos), from their second album titled Dos.
