FS#200 Delete uploaded files
There should be a way to delete uploaded files, maybe in upload files page itself.
Bad idea. Uploaded files are not kept in the attic. If you allow everyone or maybe just logged in users to delete them ... Bad idea.
But another kind of mechanism would be nice to mark wrongly uploaded files as request for deletion (like DELETEME inside the wikipages). So the admin could delete all appropriate files once in a while. I do not know how to achieve this, as renaming (maybe adding DELETEME to the name) is as bad as deleting them. Maybe add a checkbox. When checked (e.g. at image.png), an empty file (image.png.deleteme) is created ... [Just brainstorming ...]
That mechanism should also include checking if the media file still occurs in wikipages ...
Too much work? I would say: Yes, delete them manually.
