I've had previous off-wiki contact with Rick before, and on emailing this same address I can confirm Rick made this thread - hopefully this helps towards verifying the above claim

@Aklapper Hi Andre, this was more of a personal note to myself to look into it :-P hence why it's in the User-Samtar project... I'm guessing there will be some sort of database query which could be run on (hopefully) a replica of the enwp db which will return similar deleted titles.

Looking closer at the beta cluster (this section in particular) it appears it may not be suitable for development. I think we should still enable the schema there and use the above "how to verify events" section for some further testing. I'll see if there's somewhere we can use as a "development playground"

I'll take a look at https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Analytics/EventLogging/TestingOnBetaCluster - looks like we'll need to be assigned sudo. How to verify events looks very useful!

@Samwalton9 any thoughts? The beta cluster is apparently designed for this kinda stuff but we'd need to be a little more considerate - if we did have our own instance it would (hopefully!) be short lived and wouldn't take up too many resources and we could focus less on being considerate and more on getting to the root of the problem.
