Bug ID: 61995
Summary: Babel AutoCreate should not recreate deleted
Product: MediaWiki extensions

I deleted [[Category:User Yi]] from enwiki on 26 February, as it was a
duplicate of [[Category:User yi]].
However, Babel AutoCreate recreated the category on 27 February, despite me
having fixed the broken #babel invocation that led to it being created:
If an admin has deleted a category that can be used by Babel, it probably
should not be recreated. There is likely a good reason for such deletions, and
recreation might need to be discussed. Instead of recreation, I recommend
getting Babel AutoCreate to log these events on its user page or on a user
subpage so that a human can check them.
I have blocked [[User:Babel AutoCreate]] on enwiki, partly for this issue, but
mostly because it was creating categories with the wrong capitalisation. (See
bug 61993 and bug 61994 for more on that.) If there's a better way of doing
this than blocking, let me know and I'll be happy to unblock the account.
