Deleted spam items in wiki still in to-do list


The wiki to-do list contains some items which are actually advertisements that have been deleted, but with a marker left in place. I assume this list is produced automatically by looking for items with only one link, but those items need to be removed from the list.

Like this one, I guess:

http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/...all_USA/CANADA

It shows up in the "Wanted Pages" search.

That's right! There's a couple more for E-cigarettes and one for Skype. Probably others too. And I found one genuine page that someone had created, but it's still on the to-do list.

That is default mediawiki behavior, but it does seem odd. I'll look into it further, thanks for the heads up.

Well, in the case of that example, it's because the spam account still exists, and the spam account still has a link to the deleted page.

http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/...k:Crmsolution9

Getting rid of both that account and the link in that account should remove that link from "Wanted Pages", shouldn't it?

Missed that the first time. Cheers, dugan. Fixed.
