Bring Special:Undelete to feature parity with live page histories


  • A tool [1]: Query deleted page history on zhwiki--Shizhao (talk) 02:37, 8 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • This would be so useful. TonyBallioni (talk) 23:29, 14 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Agreed, the current Undelete page is so frustrating to use. Premeditated Chaos (talk) 23:31, 14 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Yes, we definitely need this. I work a lot in this area, and the current limitations make it very time-consuming. This is one of the features that should have been available many years ago. DGG (talk) 01:15, 20 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • From the Community Tech team: This is a good proposal, as long as folks are aware that we'd probably take an iterative approach to this -- taking one piece at a time, and not necessarily doing all of the requested steps on this proposal. -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 17:25, 20 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I think the deletion mechanism should be more similar to revdelete than current deletion, though it would need a non-trivial amount of software rewriting. --Vituzzu (talk) 14:41, 23 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
