For all you users who protect and unprotect your pages I just thought of a new idea. If you are tired of seeing the protect/unprotect icon, there should be a change in the icon like a lock for protect and an unlock icon for unprotect.

Those images seem to be copyrighted. Manyman Talk 00:06, May 22, 2010 (UTC)
If you don't like the current images just add
     background-image:url('url source of the modified icons image')
to you css and edit this file to your image. Manyman Talk 00:38, May 22, 2010 (UTC)
You can't use just any image file for sprites. It has to be laid out with the icons in a grid of specific dimensions. See monaco-sprite.png for how it should be laid out. You will also notice there is only a single icon for the protect/unprotect feature, so I don't think you can make it toggle between icons just by pointing to a new image. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 2:49 PM PST 26 May 2010
Actually, you can use just any image -provided it is the rights size (about 16x16px) and that you get rid of the background-position attribute of the class. Also, you can have separate protect and unprotect icons by putting the following in your monaco.css:
li#control_protect .sprite.protect {
        background-position:0 0;
li#control_unprotect .sprite.protect {
        background-position:0 0;
Of course, you can switch out the icon links. The ones in this code came from Wikipedia originally, and they look like this: 16px-Padlock-silver.png Unprotect-sprite.png ~Gardimuer  ʈalk } 23:24, May 26, 2010 (UTC)
