6.13. Delete logs
Email the log owner
Before or immediately after you delete a log, email the log owner to explain your concerns. If the log or photos contain spoilers, invite the log owner to edit the log. If you have already deleted the log, invite them to post another log without spoilers.
If a log contains obscene or threatening language, delete it immediately. If you prefer not to email the log owner, contact us for assistance.
Permanently encrypt a log
Many logging errors are simple mistakes. Instead of deleting a log, you can choose to permanently encrypt it. Select View Log to open the log in a separate page. Then, select the Permanently Encrypt padlock.
Needs Maintenance and Needs Archived logs
Deleting a Needs Maintenance log does not remove the Needs Maintenance icon.
Similarly, deleting a Needs Archived log does not prevent a reviewer from archiving your cache. Needs Archived logs are automatically forwarded to reviewers.
