Recently, when deleting unused images a place holder has remained in the "Unused Photos" section with the shell (for lack of a better term) of the file still in place and these now remain without any sign of disappearing. Is there any way to clean these out? --Buckimion (talk) 15:12, October 21, 2012 (UTC)

See image: Ghosts

The problem is clear from the text at the top of your screenshot: "Last updated October 14". The system periodically scans the wiki and regenerates Special:WantedFiles, Special:WantedCategories, Special:UnusedFiles, etc, etc. The background job that does this will usually run about once every 24 hours but your wiki is apparently experiencing a recent malfunction where the update job isn't running at all. You'll need to contact the staff and report it. Lunarity 15:31, October 21, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks and done. --Buckimion (talk) 16:43, October 21, 2012 (UTC)
