I'm just curious as to have more details as to when to protect. I seem to be on the site in a very slow time in the mornings.
If I see an answer to old question from a very new user that does seem to have problems is it still worth protecting? I don't know if protecting old questions is something I should do.
What about a question that has several poorly received answers from new user but does not seem to be too hot? Still Worth a protect then?
I don't want to abuse my new found privilege.
EDIT [Aug 24, 2021]: Just bumping this question to see if community standards have changed since it was first asked Feb 5, 2016.
