Description Chad H. 2007-08-03 19:08:39 UTC
Deleting users from MediaWiki is a very difficult process, due to the way the software is designed from the ground up. What about a way to logically delete a user? Their entries still exist in the database, so we don't deal with them, but they do not appear in userlists, log pages, histories, etc.
