==<s>Quick Reports vs. Reports</s>==
Is is really necessary to distinguish between "Quick Reports" and "Reports?" Why not simply direct maintenance team members to the already-existing [[ArchWiki:Reports]] page. (We can add a table at the bottom for use with Wiki Monkey.) -- [[User:Pointone|pointone]] 12:01, 14 February 2012 (EST)
:Well, since the quick reports come before normal reports in the workflow, the table might better be put at the top of the page; this would also preserve the functionality of the + button at the top for adding a discussion. An alternative would be to move [[ArchWiki talk:Reports]] to [[ArchWiki talk:Maintenance Team]], move [[ArchWiki:Reports]] to [[ArchWiki talk:Reports]] and leave only the table in [[ArchWiki:Reports]].

== Deleting old redirect pages ==
I've gone through a number of old redirects, and I've updated the pages that linked to them to point to the proper page, which means the old redirect pages can be deleted. Is there a special place or method to report these pages? I did see that some of them were deleted via recent changes patrolling, but I think a better way to report them is needed. Should a semi-permanent section on [[ArchWiki:Reports]] be created to list them so that an administrator can go through the whole list?

:Good job, however deleting unused redirects is not seen as a high-priority task; besides, the fact that a redirect has no backlinks doesn't mean it's useless, often redirects are created to ease searching for particular keywords, even in non-English languages. Of course, when looking for backlinks, also language backlinks should be taken into account, see [[Help:i18n#Finding articles with specific interlanguage links]].
:Marking redirects with [[Template:Deletion]] is the correct way to request their deletion (without breaking the redirect code): admins know that [[Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Deletion]] is the proper place to find the list of the pages marked for deletion, so there's no need to maintain another list manually :)
