I added a simple hook to our settings file that

main page on any Wikimedia wiki. Thankfully, it does not require flooding
the database with 3.8 million edits (5000 edits times 763 wikis).
Is there any way to override that? Contact a sysadmin, I guess. There
are cases where deleting the main page may be required (not very
common cases, but it could happen).
