PLEASE DELETE ... :cry: :cry: :cry: ...

In addition there are still so many pages to be deleted ... as formerly mentioned here

These have NO LINKS at all ... as already explained ...
There is nothing written in these pages.
Proper substitutes have long been set up.

Furthermore, there has been a bit more spamming lately ...
which I have deleted, but I can't do anything about the authors of such editing ...

see http://sisterswiki.org/Special:Recentchanges

Here's, btw, a link to the Wikipedia Administrators' Manual, if necessary.

How do I delete a user from my list of users?

MediaWiki does not natively support the deletion of user accounts. To prevent an account from being used, either scramble the password or set up an indefinite block on the account. See the User Merge and Delete extension.

Do not remove users from the user table in the mySQL database; this causes problems with other parts of the wiki due to the relational structure of the database.

How do I scramble the password or set up an indefinite block?

A wiki system administrator can block a username on the Special:Blockip page (a restricted special page - look under Special pages in the toolbox). One of the options for the block length is infinite.
Alternately, an administrator with direct access to the wiki database can change a user's password. Scrambling a password is simply changing the password to some random text. The script from the "How to change a user's password" FAQ (above) can be used.

... :D ...
But can I rename the user, then?

Deleting the user is not strictly necessary, but it would helpful to be able to rename it to something neutral.
In MediaWiki 1.5 and upwards, bureaucrats can rename users directly in the wiki with the Extension:Renameuser installed.
In previous versions, it required direct manipulation of the database:

UPDATE LOW_PRIORITY user SET user_name='NewUsername' WHERE user_name='OldUsername';
UPDATE LOW_PRIORITY user_newtalk SET user_ip='NewUsername' WHERE user_ip='OldUsername';
UPDATE LOW_PRIORITY cur SET cur_user_text='NewUsername' WHERE cur_user_text='OldUsername';
UPDATE LOW_PRIORITY old SET old_user_text='NewUsername' WHERE old_user_text='OldUsername';
UPDATE LOW_PRIORITY archive SET ar_user_text='NewUsername' WHERE ar_user_text='OldUsername';
UPDATE LOW_PRIORITY ipblocks SET ipb_address='NewUsername' WHERE ipb_address='OldUsername';
UPDATE LOW_PRIORITY image SET img_user_text='NewUsername' WHERE img_user_text='OldUsername';
UPDATE LOW_PRIORITY oldimage SET oi_user_text='NewUsername' WHERE oi_user_text='OldUsername';
UPDATE LOW_PRIORITY recentchanges SET rc_user_text='NewUsername' WHERE rc_user_text='OldUsername';
... :wink: ... might - at least - look better ...

otherwise, this Extension:User Merge and Delete could work :?:


The SistersWiki is btw, Version 1.6.5 ...
