The page said "obsolete" but the editor didn't care, cuz it made his point valid. I showed him the updated wiki, and he still hung onto the old page he found. 2 days later, he was blocked for other reasons.

I've had 6 editors point to obsolete pages so far this year, so I say either change the info and make it relevant or delete them if there is no useful info on them.

Delete with a good redirect to /wiki.html with a 30 second splash page that states the page no longer exists due to old info or never did exist.

Maybe I'm a sucker for history, but I'd like to keep them around in some way. Why not move them to a namespace called, say, "OBSOLETE"?

General idea with mediawiki is not to delete pages because of links to the pages from other websites (like this forum)

Combine option 3 and 4:

Option 4: When moving a page, a redirect is left at the old page.
Option 3: Edit this redirect and point it to the new information.

Option 4 combined with option 3.
The name of the namespace should be "Archive" instead of "Obsolete" to make it more universal and clearer for non native English speaking people.

Move the page to an other namespace and edit the redirect that is left behind to a page with newer information.

Option 4. but make it a 6 month max limit to ensure all information has been transferred across.
Then they will be deleted.

If the page can be usefull when changed, I would keep it.
Otherwise delete them.
