How do I delete my Wiki?

There are a number of reasons why your Wiki might need to be deleted:

  • You do not want your Wiki anymore and want it to be deleted.
  • Your Wiki is currently paid for by a Local Authority, School or other organisation and for some reason they will no longer be paying for your Wiki (for example if you are leaving school or if your local authority is not renewing their RIX Wiki contract) and you do not want to move onto an individual ‘My Wiki’ subscription and pay for your Wiki yourself.

To delete your Wiki please email rixadmin@uel.ac.uk or contact your local Wiki Coordinator if you have one.  

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION – Once you have deleted your Wiki all content will be destroyed and you will not be able to retrieve it again. Therefore please ensure that you have downloaded and saved any content from your Wiki that you want to keep BEFORE you request that your Wiki is deleted.
