Default Deleting/Moving articles

Per policy (as written in the wiki user's guide), there are 2 steps to take in order to get an article deleted.
  • Wipe the content of the article entirely
  • Send a note to bezking or W9RXR via email or RR mail to have the article deleted

However, as noted, if all you need to do is change a title of an article, it's far better to use the Move tab, found on the left under History.

Following these simple steps keeps the wiki clean and well organized. Thanks in advance for your cooperation 73 Mike

Thanks guys. I'm not a 'regular user' so I didn't see that. Appreciate the correction, and I'll add a note in the user guide about this 73 Mike

As a forum user, I must admit that I hardly ever look at the WIKI Forum although I enjoy creating and editing articles.

However,I wish I had reviewed the "sticky" regarding deleting and renaming articles as I was unaware of the problems it creates if not done correctly.
