Resolve namespace conflicts on Beta Wikiversity
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

As a result of bug 64080, many titles previously on Beta Wikiversity became inaccessible due to the namespace changes. For example:

https://beta.wikiversity.org/wiki/Kategorija:Skai%C4%8Diavimo_sistemos is in
https://beta.wikiversity.org/wiki/Category:Candidates_for_speedy_deletion; however, it also currently redirects to
https://beta.wikiversity.org/wiki/Category:Skai%C4%8Diavimo_sistemos

I suggest we run namespaceDupesWT.php and cleanupTitles.php

Assigning Reedy to run these maintenance scripts.

I don't believe this is a high priority bug as only 4 pages (https://beta.wikiversity.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3APrefixIndex&prefix=Kategorija&namespace=0) are affected and all were useless and unused (categories don't work outside the category namespace), anyway. Obviously, it would be nice to fix the display issues soon but this is nothing which requires an immediate action.

I agree that it may not warrant "immediate" action, but generally the "major" severity is indicated for "Major loss of function in an important area." While the data loss might be minimal, I think there is nonetheless data loss that is the result of these pages becoming inaccessible locally. The "priority" change on the other hand is fine.

Couldn't you try to add it together with the namespace prefixes? So that "Kategorija:Skaičiavimo_sistemos" for example becomes "Category:Kategorija:Skaičiavimo_sistemos". These pages are to be deleted anyway so that the title does not seem that relevant to me. Thank you.

Reedy: I think it would be best just to delete the 5 duplicate pages manually from the database. None of them have any meaningful history that isn't already present in other pages.

Any progress? I'd be fine with either solution (renaming the pages the way I suggested and then deleting them the proper way onwiki or deleting them directly from the DB).

Just moved them to pages suffixed with DELETEME. I'll let you confirm and delete them locally on the wiki

Thanks! All conflicts are resolved and the suffixed pages deleted locally.
