From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

See the deletion log for all deleted pages.

This category contains pages tagged with speedy deletion templates. Before speedily deleting a page, take the time to ensure that it meets the criteria for speedy deletion, check the links, the history, and for images the file links. If there is any doubt at all, switch the article to a process like Wikipedia:Proposed deletion that allows time for others to review the proposal.

Attack pages: When deleting attack pages, it is important that you don't quote any of the content in your deletion summary. In some cases, MediaWiki will offer a prefilled deletion summary that includes some of the content being deleted; make sure you replace the summary with something more appropriate (such as "[[WP:CSD#G10]] - Attack page") before clicking the delete button. Once added to the log, only an oversighter or a developer can remove the log from public view.

Dated deletion categories

Backlogs larger than 10 days will not appear below due to limitations in the template. Please clear older backlogs before newer ones and check the "master category" once in a while if a category suddenly changes from "huge backlog" to "no backlog" overnight.

Pages detected by the edit filter

The edit filter can detect certain pages that may meet criteria for speedy deletion and tag those edits in recent changes:

  • Removal of speedy deletion templates - detected by filter 29 (abuse log)
  • New article with no mention of title - detected by filter 96 (abuse log)
  • Very short new article - detected by filter 98 (abuse log)

From Wikiversity

Shortcut: CAT:CSD These pages should be deleted as soon as possible if they have been legitimately labelled for speedy deletion. Valid reasons for speedy deletion include:

  1. obvious vandalism,
  2. leftover/unused redirects (it is your job to make sure that they are unused) and
  3. pages that are causing problems for Wikiversity such as copyright/license violating textdumps
  4. empty pages.

Do not delete pages which:

  1. might be an honest attempt by a new contributor. Sometimes new editors create new pages and then discover that they cannot make a useful contribution. In this case, Assume Good Faith and use {{Main welcome}} or another welcome template.

Pages incorrectly marked for speedy deletion will normally need to have the speedy delete tag replaced with a slow delete tag.
