That's an excellent feature, Magnus. But (and I'm sorry to have to
qualify this praise) I'm not sure how useful it is without
password-based unique logins. As it is, it could allow a lot of
mischief ... suppose I go now and login in as, say [[tbc]], then
permanently delete every article having to do with [[nutmeg]].....
There is a "delete this page" function in the
PHP wikipedia, for
"privileged" users only. As I anticipate this to be a problem for some
"normal" users, as demonstrated here, I added an automatic log page
function ([[Log:Page Deletions]]). Every permanent page
deletion via that
function will be recorder there, with date and user name, and will
the "Recent Changes" page.
I demonstrated it at
with the old "Feature Requests" page, for those who'd like an example.
The log page cannot be edited by *anyone* via the web interface. Of
I cannot prevent the direct edit of the database.
