Grants:IdeaLab/Retain trace of deletions
What is the problem you're trying to solve?
Articles that are deleted for some reason may contain valid ideas and may be revised into something useful, but after deletion they cannot be found (as far as I know).
What is your solution?
Make it possible to search among deleted articles and make at least an attempt to revive them after revision
About the idea creator
Wiki enthusiast, ..
- Deleting articles without a trace is akin to burning the library of Alexandria. Who knows what wisdom may be lost to us? The idea of making the recycle bin searchable has the hallmark of genius, that of being obvious in retrospect. Shankarsivarajan (talk) 16:31, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
- Being able to find my articles which have been speedied without notification would be very helpful. Stuartyeates (talk) 02:14, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
