Undelete page with invalid title at en.wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

In October 2004, Wikipedia:Main Page and Wikipedia talk:Main Page were moved by User:Gdans to a title containing a long string of percent-encoded characters, hence the Tinyurl link above (see the last entry in the history of Wikipedia:Main Page). I'd like that page to be moved and undeleted so that it is much easier to trace the move from Wikipedia:Main Page to Wikipedia:Community portal. An edit to that page appears in Timwi's deleted contributions list for February 29, 2004:
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:DeletedContributions&offset=20040315050310&limit=250&target=Timwi
so it is definitely in the database. It just needs to be easier to retrieve.

Just to make it clear, I would like both the article and the talk page with the bad titles to be moved so they are accessible.

These deleted edits (2 to the subject page, 2 to the talk page) have been renamed to [[Wikipedia:Community_Portal/Long_percent-encoded_broken_title]] and its talk page.

This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
