           Summary: It should be possible to delete placeholder threats
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: LiquidThreads
        AssignedTo: agarr...@wikimedia.org
        ReportedBy: theevilipaddr...@hotmail.de


When you move a thread to another page, a placeholder always remains at the old
page where it has been. However, unlike other threads on the page, it's not
deletable. While it may be good to keep them around usually, it should at least
be possible to delete them since they clutter the page and the table of
contents and some users might not like them. Furthermore, on some wikis, it's
common practice to delete unnecessary move leftovers. For example, on the
German language Wikipedia, there's an own bot that puts speedy deletion
templates on all talk page redirects and move artifacts with a parentheses
title. Some time ago, a bot used to delete about 300 user talk subpage
redirects leftovers from userspace drafts. Thus, a delete option would be
useful, even though you might not want to encourage deleting them.
