Confluence - How to mark a page as obsolete?

Is there any way to mark a Confluence page as obsolete? This would be useful in allowing that page to live on as a record while discouraging editors from adding to that page.

on-prem Confluence:

i added different user macros for {draft}, (out-of-date}, etc.
these display as a nice colorful divs - similar to {note} or {warning}

put it on top of the page = done

I'm looking for a solution for OnDemand.

do you have a link (or can you provide) further information on how you created a {draft} etc user macro. I am trying to find a way to create a {cleanup} tag that means the page requires attention. I would then need to create a master page that searches for all cleanup tags within the space so that we can work on them. Thanks for any assistance

Looks like a nice generic solution; but as a newbie I'm afraid I need a step-by-step guide on macro creation with embedded images in an efficient way (by reference to a common image attachment, built-in, or how?)

For future references:

you can use a status which you define by yourself.

other macros => status

Archiving Plugin has various features to manage obsolete (non-uptodate or non-viewed) content.

Although it is not available for Confluence Cloud, there is a public feature request for that. Anyone's vote is welcome there.
