Question about removing media

Jump to: navigation, search

Hi Gladys,

Thanks for being a wikineighbour and leaving a message offering help.

How does one remove, alter or rename uploaded media ?

Realize one can simply remove the link to a picture, but it would then just clutter the server, and take up space unnecessarily ! Or will unused pages and media eventually be removed automatically or by the site admin ?

Removing or deleting pages is attribution of system administrators. If you want a page (images, mp3 files, pdf files, etc. have their own pages) to be deleted:

  • Be sure you are the only editor
  • There is no other page linked to it
  • Switch to edit mode, write wiki-code: {{delete}} and save page.
  • Write a short explanation for your request. Please sign up your request.

That's it. Let administrators do the rest of the job. In doubt, they might contact you. You will see the deletion log in recent changes list, or when eventualy visit the page. You might want to contact Administrator Declan McCabe, he's been doing this job.
