When a person who has a page on this wiki leaves:

  • go to the person's page

clean up roles

  • click on any of the person's roles, and on the role pages, remove the person from those roles

clean up any other pages that refer to the person

  • use the "what links here" link in toolbar on left or related articles link on the bottom of their page see all pages that link to this one; since the person is leaving, most of these links will need to be changed. If the referring page was about something the person has accomplished in the past or similar you may be able to leave it, but any instructions that include this person will, of course, need to be changed.
  • If you don't know what the new information should be, put a question on the page that referred to the leaving person. Don't just leave the link.

remove physicians from their secretary's page

  • in case of GFT physicians or senior administrators, follow the link to their secretary in a new tab and remove the leaving person from supporting secretary's page; if you know who replaces them, put that person's name in there

clean out the actual person page

  • edit (plain edit, not edit with form) their wiki page
  • work your way through the page and delete things, making sure along the way that anything that is related to another page on the wiki also has that page cleaned up
  • copy-paste the following onto the page and edit as appropriate (keep it neutral), save, and then deal with the discussions you pasted:
{{PAGENAME}} was a bee keeper in our department in the Section of Bee Keeping. 

{{Discuss | If they did not retire, put something like  "John worked with us until August 22, 2018."}}

{{Discuss | If they retired put name and template, e.g. John {{Retired | replace this with retirement date}}. }}

{{Discuss | If appropriate, give a link to a successor or successor's role who someone who searched for the person might talk to instead. }}

<!-- put some brief info validating the content, e.g. "Dale said so 2018-11-11" between these marks; they will hide it from regular view but show it when editing, so if someone were to put a question / discussion about it they would see this.  -->
