MediaWiki:Citethispage-content includes {{int:sitesubtitle}} but MediaWiki:Sitesubtitle got deleted in 2007
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Currently default text of «MediaWiki:Citethispage-content» is called "MediaWiki:Sitesubtitle" (in form {{int:sitesubtitle}}) - see as example https://inh.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Citethispage-content/en&action=edit

This is problem, becouse message "MediaWiki:Sitesubtitle" early was created by default, but from 2007 this is deleted as "No longer required" - see https://ba.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Sitesubtitle

In the enwiki, dewiki etc this message was created locally, especially for using in the «MediaWiki:Citethispage-content» (and therefore in the «Special:Cite»).

The message is empty string and it's still there. When you 'delete' interface page on wiki; it does nothing to the actual message, it only affects any modification that you may have made to the message. Maybe calling that process 'deletion' should be revisited. Because it's not 'deletion' and that's why it often lead to confusion like this ticket and T185812
