Usage[edit]

This template is intended to be placed on a user talk page to warn the creator of or a principal contributor to an article that such article has been nominated for deletion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. Wikipedia Page History Statistics may be used to identify principal contributors to an article by number of edits.

To use, append {{subst:Afd-notice|Name of nominated page}} ~~~~ to a user talk page; a section heading will be automatically created. If this is a renomination or a group nomination, please give the name of the nomination page as a second parameter.

Examples:

  • {{subst:Afd-notice| ARTICLE NAME }} ~~~~
  • {{subst:Afd-notice| ARTICLE NAME | ARTICLE NAME (2nd nomination) }} ~~~~
  • {{subst:Afd-notice| ARTICLE NAME | NAME OF GROUP NOMINATION PAGE }} ~~~~

The template should always be substituted lest attempted replies should modify the template page; editors are encouraged to modify substituted templates to suit unique circumstances.

Warning: Aggressive use of this template may be seen as canvassing, which is disruptive and may lead to the canvasser(s) being blocked.

Options[edit]

You can change the level-one header to a level-two header:

  • {{subst:Afd-notice| ARTICLE NAME | header=2}}
