Wikipedia page After a hoax, Wikipedia locks Liz Truss' page.

Celebrity photos were substituted with images of the new British Prime Minister.



Due to "continuous vandalism," which occurred when jokesters swapped out the image of the new UK Prime Minister Liz Truss for images of British TV stars, Wikipedia has banned editing on its page about Liz Truss.


Following the announcement of the former foreign secretary as the victor of the Tory leadership contest on Monday, the Daily Mail claimed that the story was given "protected" status in response to repeated swaps of Truss' profile photo with pictures of unrelated celebrities.


The page was targeted by vandals on September 3 and 5, according to the online encyclopedia's protection log and edit history, and among the many adjustments were repeated changes to the profile photo.


The Daily Mail provided images of several changes. On Monday, the website on Truss briefly displayed a photo of Kim Woodburn, an 80-year-old celebrity cleaner who co-hosted the Channel 4 program "How Clean Is Your House?"


Instead of the incoming PM's photo, there were images of made-up EastEnders characters and Celebrity Big Brother contestant Lauren Harries.


Although most Wikipedia articles can be edited for free, administrators have the right to ban users and lock pages if they violate the encyclopedia's rules.


Truss' page can now only be edited by administrators and extended confirmed users who have made more than 500 revisions and have had accounts for at least 30 days.
