Description Raymie Humbert 2008-06-30 19:50:29 UTC
I have a deleted page on my watchlist in the project namespace.

No matter WHAT I do, it will not remove itself from the site. I tried to create the page to delete it from my watchlist to no avail.

How do I remove this?

Just to clarify:

1) Page "Project:Page" existed and was on your watchlist.
2) You deleted "Project:Page"
3) You now cannot remove "Project:Page" from your watchlist.

Do I have this right? If so, worksforme as of r36821

I think this user does not know about [[Special:Watchlist/edit]].
Comment 3 Raymie Humbert 2008-07-01 03:08:05 UTC
I've tried that, Mike.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2008-07-06 20:51:15 UTC
It may not have originally been in project namespace (eg, the project namespace changed). In this case, you'll need a site administrator on the site (whatever it may be) to remove the broken entries from the watchlist table.

This can be done by running maintenance/cleanupWatchlist.php.
