Hi. I would like to know if it's possible to change the link for files that were proposed and logged in the CSD log. Currently, after locally (en.wp) saved versions of a file are deleted, the CSD log entry wikilinks to the en.wp pointer page for the file held on Commons -- this makes examining a CSD log harder since those files do not have red links. If it's not possible to change the wikilink, it should be possible to add a link to the file's deletion log using [[Special:log]]. (This is probably easier.) Thanks! - [[User:Tucoxn|tucoxn]][[User_talk:Tucoxn|talk]] 22:29, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Where would you like the link to point? There isn't a whole lot of choice. (I actually wish image redlinks went to the File: namespace page instead of the Upload Wizard, as that is a pretty useless destination.)
I agree a link to the deletion log could be a useful addition to the CSD log in the case of files. — [[User:This, that and the other|This, that]] and [[User talk:This, that and the other|the other (talk)]] 05:26, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

How about pointing to the deleted page history. For the example of [[:File:HOT ROD!.jpg]], which was deleted on en.wp but justifiably remains on Commons, a link to the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:HOT_ROD!.jpg?action=history file's history] could be added; the history also shows that the file has been deleted. I think this might turn out red if a wikilink is used. In any case, adding the deletion log to all CSD entries would be useful. - [[User:Tucoxn|tucoxn]][[User_talk:Tucoxn|talk]] 20:55, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
