This template is used to mark a page for deletion.

Pages with this template on are added to Category:Pending deletion.

When marking non-redirect pages for deletion, the content should not be blanked - simply put the delete template above all of the content. The only exceptions to this are if the page is a blatant attack page, a copyright violation, contains personal/sensitive information, or something along those lines. When marking a redirect for deletion, the delete template should always go below the redirect, as this will make the redirect function for normal readers but will still add it to the normal category.

Usage[edit]

{{delete|Optional reason|Optional talk section}}

creates

This page has been tagged for and is currently pending deletion per user request. [discuss, links]
Reason: Optional reason

Additionally, the parameter {{{priority}}} can be set to make the marked page show hihger in the category.

  • {{speedy delete}}: Use for obvious candidates for deletion, typically due to a violation of the rules.
  • {{delete when}}: Use when a page should be deleted, but a technical reason prevents deleting it. Should only be used after consensus is achieved or in cases where {{speedy delete}} is relevant.
