Wiki deletion script run
Open, LowPublic

Description

Special:DeletedWikis Could a Technology-Team team member please consider running the wiki deletion script to delete wikis which have been marked as deleted as per Dormancy Policy? The backlog is running almost five months worth of marked as deleted wikis. This should also create a modest increase in storage space availability on the servers. Please also remember to post the list of database names to be deleted in a Paste. Thanks!

Someone should make sure to clear the months-old backlog at Requests for Adoption before possibly deleting wikis someone may still want.

Will run soon.

There are some wikis that have been marked deleted that people still want on the Requests for reopening wikis page.

Will run soon.

There are some wikis that have been marked deleted that people still want on the Requests for reopening wikis page.

Thanks for reminding me. Indeed, I'm aware of that and would have of course checked SN before this anyway. In any case, I will also be doing extra backups for all the wikis.

SN has been checked and Agent has resolved outstanding undeletion. Public and private wikibackups have been ran. The deletion script was started around an hour ago and is expected to be completed later today.

Reception123 lowered the priority of this task from High to Normal.Jan 16 2024, 07:26

It's been suggested that deletions are paused until the migration due to the swift issues. Lowering this task to normal as a lot of space has been freed up (~300GB on swift and ~200GB on DBs) and this is therefore no longer a high priority task.

Not a huge priority anymore
