This page is for the request of page undeletions within the Urban Dead wiki. Due to concerns about loss of data, the ability to undelete pages is restricted to system operators. As such, regular users will need to request an undeletion from a system operator. For consistency and accountability, system operators also adhere to the guidelines listed here.

Please note that Images cannot be restored, they are permanently gone when deleted. If you wish to prevent any currently unused images from being deleted you may wish to Image Ark them.

Due to the new software update, images deleted from the wiki after 21st April 2011 can be undeleted. Images deleted prior to this date unfortunately cannot be restored.

Guidelines for Undeletion Requests

All Undeletion Requests must contain the following information in order to be considered:

  • A link to the deletion request in question. Preferably bolded for visibility.
  • A reason for undeletion. This should be short and to the point.
  • A signed datestamp. This can be easily done by adding ~~~~ to the end of your request.

Any undeletion request that does not contain these three pieces of information will not be considered, and will be removed by a system operator.

Undeletions may only be granted if the user provides a convincing reason as to why the page should be resurrected, or if the page was deleted as a result of a system operators abuse.

Once the undeletion request has been entered, the request shall remain on this page, where it will be reviewed by a member of the Sysop team, and action taken accordingly. Once action has been taken, the request will be moved into Recent Actions, along with a comment from the system operator who determined the action take. After a week has passed with the target page in Recent Actions, it can be moved to the Archive.

Undeletion Queue

There are currently mop pages in the queue.

I feel like this is the inverse of what happened when we had Crit 12. Can you come up with a reason why we should undelete these pages and expose their histories to wipes instead of preserving them until the groups and histories are relevant? --Karekmaps 2.0?! 06:39, 31 March 2013 (BST)
Sure, all of those pages have actual content and (the great majority) have incoming links already. If you follow the (crit 12) links I've been providing, you'll see that I don't just put up all crit 12 deletions, only those that I think have provided some interesting content or interaction. Crit 12 was a good idea, but overdone with very little thought put into rejecting requests to nuke group pages that had gone inactive, but had still contributed to the game without being truly noteworthy (historic). I figure I can retrieve most of them before I lose interest or the ability to view deleted pages. Others can put them up for deletion again, if they meet other speedy delete criteria, or even lack interesting content by going through A/D -- boxy 10:40, 31 March 2013 (BST)
BTW, feel free to question/rejecdt any of these. Loners, for example, on going back through them, could be a bit of a stretch -- boxy 10:43, 31 March 2013 (BST)
I'm ok with them either way, just wanted to make sure there was some reasoning being applied here beyond 'they were crit 12'd'. Especially since there's an actual long term cost(revision loss) involved in undeleting of these. I think instead what's going to happen is I'm just going to undelete the most recent revision in these cases then. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 14:19, 31 March 2013 (BST)

Moar 12s

Historic Crit 12s

A couple of groups that were taken out in the crit 12 era, that I feel are worthy of revival (given their links and content) -- boxy 05:32, 22 March 2013 (BST)

I'd see no issue with undeleting them. Any differing second opinions? -- Spiderzed 13:26, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

These guys as well? -- boxy 08:54, 23 March 2013 (BST)

-- boxy 03:43, 24 March 2013 (BST)

Karek undeleted them. I also restored most of the talk pages -- boxy 08:43, 24 March 2013 (BST)
