Instructions

1. Don't delete user pages or user talk pages for editors who have edited in the last 5 years.

2. Using the talk pages or user pages that have the welcome template, delete editors who have not edited in 5 years.

If they posted to their user page, you can use their edit history to see if they have posted in the last 5 years.

Example:

You click on the page to see what pages link the welcome template at: http://www.conservapedia.com/Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Welcome

For example, the second person on the list is User: PeterEllis and you will see his user page at: User:Peter Ellis.

Make a mental note if they posted on their user page. You may need this to see when their last contribution was by looking at the edit history of the page and then clicking on "contrib" to see when their last edit was. If they have posted to their user page, the link will be blue. If they have not posted to their user page, the link will be red.

See when welcome was posted. See if editor ever posted on his/her talk page. Using editor signature to their posting, find out if they have posted in the last 5 years.

For Peter Ellis, you will see that he did post on his talk page.

You can go to their user page and look at its edit history. So for Peter Ellis, you will see this as his user page edit history: http://www.conservapedia.com/index.php?title=User:Peter_Ellis&action=history


Then you click on the "contrib" tab hear his name and you will see this: http://www.conservapedia.com/Special:Contributions/Peter_Ellis

Peter Ellis last posted in February of 2102 which is pretty close to 5 years ago. Peter also has a pretty extensive user page. His bio is pretty friendly. So give him the benefit of the doubt and do not delete his user page or talk page.

3. Once Step #2 has been accomplished, delete remaining talk pages and user pages of editors who have not edited in 5 years.

If they posted to their user page, you can use their edit history to see if they have posted in the last 5 years.

See if editor ever posted on his/her talk page. Using editor signature to their posting, find out if they have posted in the last 5 years.

4. If a person earned "bonus points" through lots of contributions, but edited a long time ago, do not delete their userpage or user talk page. If in doubt about possible "bonus points" you can ask about this matter before deleting their user page or talk page.

For example, User: Order made about 2,000 worthwhile edits. That is a lot of bonus points!

That's an awfully short list of user pages not to delete

I see that your account was created largely to do "maintenance work", and that you have delete privileges, and that there is a list above of user pages not to delete. While I'm happy to see my name on that list (though my user and talk pages have been deleted in the past) I sure hope that it is not your intention to cut the contributor community of Conservapedia down to those 26 people (plus the admins in the screenshots). I would hope that you wouldn't delete a user page or talk page without very careful study of that person's history and whether the content was libelous, or, better yet, never delete such a page at all SamHB (talk) 13:45, 19 June 2017 (EDT)

The five year criterion is still shortsighted. There are a number of renowned users from the past, like Andy's original home-school people (who created this website!!) and early math/science contributors, who have been inactive for more than 5 years. They are our history! A few examples: SharonS, Foxtrot, JacobB, Jaques. Disk space is cheap. (And, if Cons wants to be more frugal with disk space, he knows how to do it.) Just don't delete those pages. SamHB (talk) 19:15, 19 June 2017 (EDT)
Also, you (Cons, not Wikignome72) have deleted MatthewQ's user page. He made good edits relating to science, among other things. It's true that that page had very little, but please restore it. He is listed above as a person to protect. SamHB (talk) 19:15, 19 June 2017 (EDT)
