-==== Page locks ==== 
- 
-  * When you edit a page on this wiki, you are the temporary //owner// of the page (i.e. you have a //lock// on the page) during 15 minutes, which should give you plenty of time to validate your changes. Anyway, the //lock// is renewed for 15 minutes each time you click on the //Preview// button, and the wiki will even warn you when your lock is about to expire with the following popup message:\\ <​code>​Your lock for editing this page is about to expire in a minute. 
-To avoid conflicts use the preview button to reset the locktimer.</​code>​ 
- 
-  * There is a (very) slight chance that somebody else will already be editing the page you want to update... You will then get an error message looking like:\\ <​code>​This page is currently locked for editing by another user. 
-You have to wait until this user finishes editing or the lock expires. ​ 
- 
-  * Currently locked by: jypeter 
-  * Lock expires at: 2009/02/03 10:10 (6 min)</​code>​ In that case, just try again a few minutes later, when the other person is done editing.
