"Not very useful" is a slightly rude comment to make, in my opinion. You
specifically and intentionally created local user pages on various
Wikipedias. I imagine you and others would be rightfully upset if
someone came along and simply overwrote your local user pages with a
global user page without your knowledge or consent.
Can we get a special bot task in meta to request
userpage deletion in
There's discussion on Meta-Wiki about Synchbot deleting local user pages
on a per-user, opt-in basis. I'm personally of the view that users seeking
to un-spam the dozens or hundreds of wikis where they have created a local
user page and done nothing more ought to clean up the "mess" themselves.
Instead of deletion, blanking the user page might be a neat way of
triggering the global user page to re-appear (a version of pure wiki
deletion). Though, of course, some users might want a 0-byte user page.
