Pages can be moved to the Archive: namespace, but if a page is so old
that it's not worth saving, you can put the template {{old}} at the
top so it's flagged for later consideration for deletion.

Just in case Paul's move to Archive: namespace is not clear for everyone (it took me a bit as a noob)
Take the page: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Marketing_rewards
Which is known to mediawiki as Marketing rewards
Use the move tab and make the new name Archive:Marketing rewards

The guide [1] says to also use an archive category.  Some groups are putting these files in a Category:<Group> archive others are not bothering.  Archive: is not searched by default but can easily be searched if you need to find something.
If you think you will reference them some, but don't want them in a default search for users, you will want a category as a shortcut to finding them all at once. 

Archive and redirection are strongly preferred over deletion [2]

Thanks for doing this cleanup work!
