Deleting a page
I will use a page named "Deleteme" as an example. Lets say you want to delete this page. Page deletion may only be available to admins.
  1. Go to the page: w:c:grailquest:Deleteme
  2. Click the ▾ (down pointing triangle) to the right of the "Edit" button/dropmenu and you should see a "Delete" choice.
  3. Click "Delete".
  4. Pick a Reason: from the menu and optionally put something in the Other/additional reason: entry box.
  5. Click the Delete page button.
This is explained in more detail with pictures at Help:Delete.
Moving a page
I will use a page named "Objective" as an example. Lets say you want to change it to "Objectives" (plural).
  1. Go to the page: w:c:grailquest:Objective
  2. Click the ▾ (down pointing triangle) to the right of the "Edit" button/dropmenu and you should see a "Move" choice.
  3. Click "Move".
  4. Enter Objectives into the entry box to the right of To new title: and optionally put something in the Reason: entry box.
  5. Click the Move page button.
You're done!
You can also just go directly move a page via the URL: http://grailquest.wikia.com/wiki/Special:MovePage/Objective.
