Dormant Pages

If you check out the wiki as a git repository, there's a Dormant directory (this one) which contains:

  • "redirect" pages (empty pages that point to some new page). If you want to rename a page and think it has lots of incoming links from outside the wiki, you could leave the old page name in here. The directory name is not part of the link so it's safe to move the old page into the Dormant directory.
  • "clipboard" pages that contain some amount of useful text, that needs to be extracted and organized, maybe moved to existing pages or the FAQ or maybe there's a new page that should exist. Basically content that may be good but needs massaging into the big picture.

Ideally, pages in here have a note at the top pointing to alternative content and explaining the status of the page.
