Description VictorPorton 2013-04-23 20:50:23 UTC
Please add "SPAM" as a deletion reason.

Currently I use "Vandalism" when removing spam from my site, but dedicate "SPAM" reason would be better.
Comment 1 Alex Monk 2013-04-23 20:56:03 UTC
Just modify your MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown page
Comment 2 VictorPorton 2013-04-23 20:59:04 UTC
It should be here by default just after MediaWiki installation.

SPAM is probably the most often reason of deletion (at least it is so now on my site) and should be here by default.
