Since this duplicates WT:LOP so well, I wonder how this will all turn out.

Hey, waitasec. Why isn't the archive a sub-page of the page it is archiving?

Answer to my own question: because this is merely an index to the real archives. --Connel MacKenzie 03:44, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Note to self: My plan is to move this to Appendix:Failed entries and redirect Appendix:rfdfailed there as well. The combined listing will be sub-pages of WT:PT, and will not contain the RFD discussion text, instead, only links to the discussion page removal (by using the "&oldid=" trick.) The combined result will be auto-generated from XML full-history dumps, to get the revisionID of WT:RFV or WT:RFD correct. The WT:GP messages on this topic have been archived somewhere. I've added this note so I can find this particular page more easily. --Connel MacKenzie 21:11, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Essentially, why does it need a MediaWiki prefix? It's not a template that makes up other pages like MediaWiki:Edittools, so surely something like Wiktionary is better than MediaWiki. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:06, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
