Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Admins and stewards/Implement delete and move warning for associated talk pages

◄ Back to Admins and stewards


  • Problem: When moving a page over another page (available only for sysops) the talk page is not moved if the talk page of the second page exists and an error message appears saying that the talk page was not moved. This results in talk pages often being 'left behind' at the old title.
  • Who would benefit: Administrators who move pages. Other editors and readers who wouldn't find missing/disjointed talk pages.
  • Proposed solution: The delete and move warning should be displayed another time (first time for the page itself, second time for the talk page) for the talk page making it possible to move the page and its talk page together.
  • More comments: This has been a bug since at least 2007.

DiscussionEdit

  • I'd support this. It is quite frustrating and was something I was unaware of when I first got the tools. TonyBallioni (talk) 21:58, 20 November 2017 (UTC)[]
  • It would be nice also "merging" discussions together as a consequence of the move and delete (but this is another history) --L736Etell me 07:59, 30 November 2017 (UTC)[]
