ArticleToDelete

1 Usage

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
