Description:
A problem has arisen on the en: pedia, where some templates have a
leading colon on their name. They show up in special:allpages,
but administrators cannot figure out how to delete, move, or even
view the logs.

I forgot to mention, could a developer please remove the bad

about the others. And of course, there's probably a software
fix involved....

Those are all invalid titles, hence the problem...it lies with the data set, not
the software.
