From Wikitravel Shared
Jump to: navigation, search

What happens[edit]

Attempt to delete or protect ar:DELETE on Arabic Wikitravel generates an internal server error (500). Anyone with admin rights can see this by going to [1].

When it happens[edit]

Always.

What should happen[edit]

There should be the ability to delete the topic.

How to fix it[edit]

This topic currently consists of about 76,000 spam revisions. Hopefully someone at IB can attempt to delete it and get some useful message out of the logs that indicates why this generates an error.

Additional comments[edit]

I was able to move the original topic to a new name, which has allowed me to stop the spam that was plaguing the article, but I would also like to get rid of the old article if possible.

I have alerted tech -- please let me know if you see a change in this as... I don't spend a lot of time on Arabic ;) But I did get the error as well. In the future, feel free to email me on non-EN issues -- I only recently saw this page & sorry for the delay.--IBobi 14:40, 20 October 2011 (EDT)
