Subject Re: [proposal] Outdated articles in Wiki
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2012 17:55:32 GMT
So if an article is outdated, then it is ready for deletion....or ???

Is it wise to have outdated articles alongside the correct/newer ones,
thinking of e.g. building instructions it would at least confuse me.

but I have no problem using {{Delete}} thanks for advicing me.
