Moving a thread to another page and deleting the source page leaves placeholders on the deleted page
Open, LowPublic

Similar to the bug # 24621 (but IMO not exactly the same), I feel that when you move a thread to another page, and then you delete the complete old page, then there should be nothing on this page anymore, and not any placeholders left. I have encountered this issue today when moving a thread here A user had used a wrong syntax and I fixed it. I deleted the completely unnecessary redirect, but there's still a placeholder left. This should really just all go away and the page should be like every new page. Also, I'm missing a deletion log entry on this page, as it's common for all other pages. Yes, it may be a bit pointless, but for consistency and usability it should really be there.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
