Quote from: Gryzor on 10:25, 13 May 15Hello guys,@remax has prodded me to investigate something on the wiki. It would seem there are lots of unused files on the wiki server. Take a look at http://cpcwiki.eu/index.php?title=Special:UnusedFiles&limit=20&offset=0 to see them for yourselves.Actually, it's more than 3000 files! I really don't know what to make of that. On one hand I could probably whip up a script to batch delete them and be done with it. On the other hand, I refuse to accept that people actually uploaded 3000 files just to leave them hanging there with no purpose... So, any thoughts would be welcome. If anyone's familiar with the mediawiki database, please do get in touch... Thanks!
Quote from: Gryzor on 11:35, 13 May 15Yeah, that was one of my thoughts. (how did you find out by the way?). But why would someone upload a photo on the Wiki just to link to it from here?Right now I'd like to pull a list of those files from the database. But for the life of me I can't find where (and if) the information about unused files is stored...Thanks for the help
Quote from: Gryzor on 11:41, 13 May 15Yes, thought of that too. But, for instance, I found scans of magazines that are puzzling... and still, 3000+ files? Doesn't make sense...
