Make AWB load local delete reason instead of using a set of default reasons
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

When using the delete function of AWB I get a default set of delete reasons, which aren't valid for the local wiki. I can add a reason of my own, but the reason isn't remembered when I enter a new delete reason and when AWB is closed (even when saving my settings before deletion)
Delete reasons are stored in MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown (at least for NL wiki)

I have this problem too and in fact even on other WMF wiki's like Commons it defaults to ENWP reasons. May I suggest making it look for a local page like it does for Typo's or template redirects? If its present it uses that, else it uses the default list.

Maybe something like AutoWikiBrowser/Delete reason, AutoWikiBrowser/Move reason, etc.

Reedy renamed this task from Make AWB load local delete reason in stead of using a set of default reasons to Make AWB load local delete reason instead of using a set of default reasons.Sep 23 2015, 11:29 PM
Reedy set Security to None.

If anything, we could try to grab info from the existing MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown pages.
