Description John Mark Vandenberg 2010-12-03 00:37:30 UTC
It would be nice to be able to suppression multiple revisions from the deleted history, as we can do with revisions in the public history.

We can select multiple deleted revisions, in order to selectively
restore revisions, but there is no button to mass suppress.

Currently the easiest way to suppress revisions is to undelete the page and then redelete the page.

As an oversighter, I must echo John. Deleted revisions can only be suppressed individually, by clicking del/undel.

Note that it is still possible to *restore* multiple revisions via checkboxing all of them, but not to delete. A "suppress selected revisions" button, little different to the "Del/undel selected revisions" one which appears in the history of pages in the public would - as far as I anticipate - resolve this issue completely. It is not resourceful to suppress revisions one by one and in principal it is completely unacceptable to restore material which should be suppressed, just so it can be done.

Comment 2 Will H 2012-06-10 16:06:46 UTC
Following conversation in #wikimedia-dev, I'd just like to stress how easily this could be resolved: it is already possible to check individual revisions and restore them with the "restore" button - I cannot imagine it would be too complicated to add a "suppress" button, obviously viewable to only those in the oversight group, which would bring the selected revisions forward to the standard Delete/undelete revisions page from which page suppressions are carried out.

I don't really understand how but apparently this is not actually a duplicate.
