there is no possibility to remove them, only jonathan could perhaps delete them, but he also said it to not be possible.

I'm sure he could delete them. I understand why it'd be unadvisable for everyone to be able to delete pages, as for whatever reason there's a large number of people that kill entire pages that then have to be reverted. However, we have 12 useless pages now. That's a lot. And it's growing.

Correct me if i'm wrong..

1) You can change ANYTHING on a wiki page. Including the name of the page.

2) Useless pages could be reused as new pages.. that way, at least. you don't get a ton.

If you re-use them, also the changelog for that page gets re-used. That can be very confusing...

Perhaps we could put them in a "recycle bin" to at least get them out of the way. I suppose this would serve as an archival purpose.

Oh, and to correct myself, I think the word is "inadvisable".

but it's better then having 12 pages sitting there with absolutly nothing going on...

Not neccessairily. It adds to the confusion to use the pages for something else.
