This category is automatically populated with pages that include one of the following templates: Template:Delete. You can use this category manually, but most uses should be via application of the indicated template.

The following pages, files, templates, and categories have been labelled for deletion i.e. a user asked the administrators (list) to delete it. If unsure when requesting deletion, please read Wiki:Deletion procedure.

The contents of this category should be ready for removal from the wiki. You can see a list of deleted pages, files, templates, and categories in the deletion log. Actually the deleted pages are archived but no longer visible to non-admin users, and they may be restored (possibly with another name in case of conflict with a newer page) by talking to admins. Pages may also be deleted for privacy or legal reasons, or because of other abuses (including spam) and won't be restored.

Note to wiki sysops: The list ordered by oldest is a logical order to process them. You can also see similar list limited to only files. Don't delete the Wiki organisation pages in different languages that may also show up in this category; add the category=no to their local inclusion of the {{Delete}} template instead.

Previous requests were checked how much they comply with the following indicators:

  • There should be no incoming links, exceptions are talk pages about mainenance and multiple requests linking to each other. Interesting links should be fixed beforehand.
  • Requests should be uncontested, thus usually unchanged for 31 days. In case of previous disputes longer, in case of copyright violations and spam shorter.
  • Tag documentation pages should only be made when the tag is out of use.
  • Categories should be empty. The deletion request concerns the category itself, not all of its members.
  • Files and templates should not be included in any wiki pages anymore.
  • Previously redirected pages, templates, and categories usually do not need to be deleted.
  • Deletion requests for translated pages should be indicated on each translation, so other users get a chance to comment.
