Are there any extensions to mediawiki that will allow for a button to mark a page as "needs cleanup" or "deprecated"?

AFAIK there is no such extension. Wikipedia and other MediaWiki sites are using templates for that purpose. See Wikipedia's template messages for a good example.

Yes, I spent the time adding in the ambox css stuff from the commons css. However, I could not get the templates to cleanly export from wikipedia to our wiki - so I created our own. An extension to tag a page or section with some markup would do the trick I think. – javamonkey79 Mar 9 '10 at 1:05
