Template Documentation for Delete

This page is a template and should only be used as part of other articles. For more information, read Help:Template.

Please do not experiment with this template; you could ruin all pages using this template. If you want to edit this template, copy the text to Template:Sandbox, edit and test it there, and copy it back when it works.

Feel free to voice your opinion regarding this template.

This template proposes a page or section for deletion.

Usage

Only administrators can delete pages. Other users should instead use this template to propose a page for deletion. It can also be used to propose one section of a larger page for deletion.

You should cite a brief reason in the first argument, and can expand in the article's discussion page. Don't clear the page's content except where it's obviously spam.

{{Delete|Reason.}}

Users are welcome to argue against deletion. You can override the default discussion page with a second argument to the template:

{{Delete|Reason.|Talk:Alternative Page}}

Flagged pages can be found in Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Delete.

Example

{{Delete|Message.}}

will produce:

Tango-user-trash-full.png
This material is proposed for deletion ...

Message. (Discuss)
Make sure no other pages link here and check the page's history before deleting.
