Template documentation[edit source]

Usage[edit source]

  • Add this template to the top of the page.
  • Do not replace the text of the page - leaving it there makes it easier for admins and other users to review the request, and perhaps take other measures such as improving the article.
  • Add a reason after the pipe, as in this example:
{{Delete|No relevance to Appropedia}}

Notes[edit source]

This template places the page in Category:Pages marked for deletion.

Do not edit this template to discuss why a particular article should or should not be deleted - for that, use the article’s own discussion page.

Deletion policy[edit source]

  • Where the content may be of interest to someone, it is better to transwiki it or move it to userspace (at least temporarily). Deletion is generally for content which is of no value.
  • Where the content is inaccurate or lacking in some way, it is best to flag it as needing improvement (with {{stub}}, {{cleanup}}, {{copyedit}} or {{inaccurate}}), rather than requesting deletion. It is easier to improve an existing article than create a new one.
