Page deletion can be performed by administrators to get rid of pages that are no longer needed on the wiki. Common deletion reasons include vandalism, an incorrect title, a redirect that is no longer needed after a page move, or a duplicate file. Deleted content is unavailable to the general public, but can still be viewed and restored by admins.
To request the deletion of a page, editors may use Template:Delete. To use it, place the template at the top of the page and fill in the first parameter with the reason for requesting deletion, like so:
This will produce the following template:
|This page has been marked for deletion.|
No reason has been given.
The template will automatically place the page in Category:Pages pending deletion, where all pages pending deletion are located.
An administrator should swing by in due time, review the page and its deletion rationale, and then delete the page if appropriate. If the reasoning behind the deletion of the page is debatable, a discussion may be held on the page's talk page.
