I noticed the list of deletion reasons includes only the WP:GCSD[1] criteria, while the block only has a standard vandalism message for rationale. The system messages are at MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown[2] and MediaWiki:Ipbreason-dropdown, respectively. Could we use these as the presets in the Huggle interface? Maybe even fetch the list every time, as that way it will always be up to date. — MusikAnimal[4] talk[5] 17:02, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Is there some API call that would handle that?

Adding MediaWiki-API as a project, pending respons to question from @Petrb.

This has nothing to do with the API except that it would use it. Please don't add the API project for such things.
