About deleted translated pages

I ve catched an example below but the message seems not been restored. It ask the reader to restore it but is is not acceptable since it is a one shot operation; a global automatic restore of previous translations is preferable:

I can't do that either and it seems the sysadmins can't either. I've already restored the translated pages but that seems to have broken their connections to the specific translation units in the FAQ. I'm not sure if that can be easily fixed but the content is at least still there. I am really, really sorry for messing it up.

The pages have been restored in the language but the contents of the translations are empty. (only EN text everywhere). I have tested a single restore for FAQ/55 of above; it works but remains orphan so no more hope. I leave as it is.

I'm really sorry for that. I would gladly do the work to manually restore each translation unit. But if I'm going to do that anyway, I would rather do it on the migrated version in the Community Wiki as those should be (based on a decision made years ago) the final home of those FAQs.

Thank you again for your contributions in translating our docs. I hope this blunder of mine won't discourage you and others from continuing the much-needed work.

Oh yes its a good idea to merge them there together with the translated pages (eventually putting a redirection on userbase page to community). If any help is needed, dont hesitate to request.
