Description David Benbennick 2005-06-29 17:00:59 UTC
It should be possible to delete an image description page 
without deleting the associated image.  For example, if 
someone adds copyvio or libelous text to a good image, we 
currently don't have any way to delete the image 
description page (and then undelete the good revisions).

In terms of user interface, I suggest having a checkbox on 
the "Confirm delete" page for an image, that would 
say "Only delete the image description page."
Comment 1 Platonides 2009-10-16 16:47:53 UTC
Images can now be deleted and restored. Deleting of descriptions only should be fixed when RevDeleted gets enabled for sysops.
Comment 2 Derk-Jan Hartman 2010-05-26 20:00:46 UTC
RevDel is deployed now. Do we consider this fixed ?
Comment 3 Platonides 2010-05-26 20:44:10 UTC
I'm not sure. You would still need to create a good revision, then revdelete.
Although for most cases, it is probably sufficient.
