Gone.
If at first you don't succeed, don't take up skydiving.

I've copy/pasted the text onto the Takeover page, after moving the old one to Old_Takeover_System. So New_Takeover_System is no longer needed

*blinks at the mass of blankings and "nominations to delete"* 

I don't know...  it seems wrong that for no real reason someone can destroy a large section of the history of the game (which is what even character bios are, provided there is some sembalance of truth to them)...

Edit:  Oh, there's a reason listed:  "No longer playing".
That doesn't seem kosher to me.  *shrug*  If everyone had everything they dealt with deleted, there'd be no history in the game anymore.

Hrmm.... Interesting conundrum. They wrote the pages, and we generally delete just about anything that a single person wrote and wants deleted, especially under a user page or family page. But that is a really old account, and has a LOT of history to it. I think I will contact them and find out if we can preserve it.

What specifically are you referencing? Maybe I am just being blind and not seeing it but I have no idea what you are talking specifically.

I see no reason to follow with this request, and I would prone undoing his blanking. There's no valid reason to delete these pages.

Yes, we do. They are creating the accounts, but our extensions are blocking their edits.

Alright good. I thought we had protection to stop them from making accounts, so I was worried they got through :)
