I hve redicit here but this rediciton was the archive below. So that the talk page was that archive. Those are not right. It should be these archives right. To a curret verzion page. I just get these redicits are broken.--70.225.141.61 (talk) 23:50, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

I'm with you - I'm in a maze of redirects, trying to discuss Homer. Wikipedia has out-classed itself, and become an unindexed encyclopedia in its backwaters. No matter, it's all good.--LeValley 19:47, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Lag redirect[edit]

Wikipedia:Lag currently redirects to Wikipedia:Historical archive/Lag. However, I feel it would be better as a disambiguation page in the vein of WP:Dead and WP:DB, which in addition to Wikipedia:Historical archive/Lag links to documentation about database lag in the current MediaWiki software (mw:Manual:Maxlag parameter, mw:Manual:Database access, mw:Manual:$wgSlaveLagWarning etc.) Any suggestions/comments?

Sounds sensible to me. Graham87 08:53, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

I'd need a few days to get around to actually drafting something. Also, not all of the documentation in question is necessarily on mw:; I'll keep looking in project space here. SoledadKabocha (talk) 21:04, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

    Add deleted cleanup templates[edit]

    I think that cleanup templates that were widely-used eons ago but were deleted later for various reasons (e.g. {{totallydisputed}}, {{noncompliant}}, {{unencyclopedic}}) should be in the historical archive. lo prenu .katmakrofan. (talk) 22:17, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

    I'm sort of ... meh about this, admittedly partly because I'd probably have to do the work of putting them there. :-) Most of the pages in the historical archive are there to preserve old history from 2004 or earlier, and I don't see much point in preserving the history of (relatively modern) templates. Note that the history at {{Unencyclopedic}} is at the title {{NOT}}. Graham87 08:35, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
