Rev-deletion[edit]

I can't seem to find the text at the moment, but wasn't there some technical problem that could result from Revision Delete on more than one revision at a time? VernoWhitney (talk) 14:04, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Buggered if I know. There's nothing on the policy page, and there's plenty revdels on the deletion log with a lot more than one single deletion in the mix. Absent a written statement on WP:REVDEL, I'm not inclined to go and do textual forensics. MLauba (Talk) 14:17, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I found it at MediaWiki:Revdelete-text (though I don't know where that's used), and an explicit mention of it at WT:REVDEL#Only one at a time?. I haven't found direct reference to the bug yet. VernoWhitney (talk) 14:26, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
According to User talk:FT2#REVDEL multiple revisions at once? the bug's still out there, at least for now. As I'm not an admin it doesn't affect me directly either way, but I figured I should point it out. VernoWhitney (talk) 18:18, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Bold[edit]

Given the current uproar about copyright concerns and some confusion documented about how to handle them, I've boldly moved this to article space and retagged it as a how-to page. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:54, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
