Allow deleting CentralNotice campaigns
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Campaigns can only be archived at Special:CentralNotice. While the most recent inactive may be worth archiving, we should be able to delete them, for example, for years-old campaigns no longer active that serve no historical purpose. Actually Special:CentralNotice archive is clogged with old campaigns. Thanks.

Archiving them is fine, I think. (In fact, even when you delete a wiki page as well, you are just archiving it; not really deleting it). If you uncheck the "Show archived campaigns" in that page, the archived campaigns would be hidden. Deleting campaigns would not be good for historical purposes.

atgo moved this task from Backlog to Later on the MediaWiki-extensions-CentralNotice board.
