Wikipedia is currently running a trial of a new MediaWiki feature called the "pending changes" feature.
What this feature does is allow potential edits to be submitted by regular users on protected pages. These edits will not be immediately applied, and will require an admin to approve.
Here is a link to the description of the feature: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Pending_changes
I believe this feature would be a good one to have on Bulbapedia, as it would mean that pages which would potentially have a lot of speculation on them would not have to be fully protected.
Of course, if this would cause too much spam, then it's a no-go, but I was just wondering whether the concept seems good.
