Category:Labelled for deletion

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The following pages have been labelled for deletion. Pages should be added to this category by using the {{Delete}} template reference. But when using this, please read the Template:Delete instructions and follow the procedure, including considering alternatives. Should it be a redirect instead? Do you only want propose deleting the page?

Pages in this category should be ready for removal from the wiki. Only an administrator or sysop (list) on this wiki can actually carry out the delete. When this happens they appear in the deletion log. Actually the deleted pages are archived but not 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.

If the contents of this category list seem outdated, you can Octicons-sync.svgpurge the page cache.

Note to wiki sysops: The list ordered by oldest is a logical order to process them. 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.

Note also each category listed below should be empty: the deletion request concerns only these category pages, but not any pages or subcategories may eventually fall again in them accidentally (after the deletion request): do not delete the their own members, instead check why those pages or subcategories fell into one of the following categories, to fix them (if it's not possible without extended work, then revert the deletion request and place that listed category into another maintenance category).

Some categories will remain empty but will be redirected (this is the case for categories named in English but with a valid language code prefix): those categories should still not be deleted (and not listed below) as they are needed for interlanguage navigation (and they actually have one or several links to them from similar category pages named in other languages and using the Languages bar in their description).

In all cases, a deletion request cannot be valid if there remains any link pointing to it: before deleting a page, check its lists of linked pages ("What links here" in the "Tools" side bar). You may however ignore links to pages to delete coming from talk pages speaking about maintenance of the wiki itself. If there are interesting talks to keep still refering to it, consider fixing the link to the page to delete, if it has been renamed. If a pagename is meaningful and respect naming conventions, and it does not create ambiguity (or duplication) with other pages, that page should remain only as a redirect to the new page, but without any deletion request. Most of the time, pages do not need to be deleted, except after detecting an obvious typo in its name or it creates conflicts. If the page name is ambiguous and has two possible redirections, convert that page to a disambiguation page using {{Disambig}} and listing links to relevant targets.
