1 Usage[edit]

The ArticleToDelete template is used to request the deletion of a page. It should be added as the very first line on the page that you believe should be deleted from the wiki.

It puts a message box with a "pink garbage can" icon in the page, and adds this page to the Candidates for deletion category.

Wiki maintainers periodically have a look at this category, and delete the pages that belong to it.

Usage:  {{ArticleToDelete | <reason> | <signature>}}

Where <reason> and <signature> are mandatory parameters:

  • <reason> is the reason supplied for the deletion
  • <signature> is the signature of the requester. It is recommended to use ~~~~ wiki markup to sign the request

The [[Template:ArticleToDelete|ArticleToDelete]] template is used '''to request the deletion of a page'''. It should be added as the very first line on the page that you believe should be deleted from the wiki.

It puts a message box with a "pink garbage can" icon in the page, and adds this page to the [[:Category:Candidates for deletion|Candidates for deletion]] category.

Wiki maintainers periodically have a look at this category, and delete the pages that belong to it.

 Usage:  <nowiki>{{</nowiki>ArticleToDelete | {{HighlightParam|<reason>}} | {{HighlightParam|<signature>}}}}
Where {{HighlightParam|<reason>}} and {{HighlightParam|<signature>}} are '''mandatory''' parameters:
* {{HighlightParam|<reason>}} is the reason supplied for the deletion
* {{HighlightParam|<signature>}} is the signature of the requester. It is recommended to use <code><nowiki>~~~~</nowiki></code> wiki markup to sign the request
