This template places the page into the category: Candidates for speedy deletion.

Usage

The template should be placed at the top of the page to be deleted.

Parameters

{{db-a2|source=SourceProject:SourcePageName}}

Where "SourceProject" is the project or language code and SourcePageName is the name of the page from which the content was taken..

{{db-a2|bot=ExampleBot|source=SourceProject:SourcePageName}}

Bot accounts will specify the |bot= parameter to notify the reviewing admin that the page was tagged by an automated process.

Author notification

If you nominate a page for deletion under this criterion, please consider placing the following code:

{{subst:foreign-warn|PageName|header=1|source=SourceProject:SourcePageName}}

...on the User talk page of the main contributor(s) to the page, replacing PageName with the name of the page being marked for deletion, SourceProject with the project or language code and SourcePageName with the name of the page from which the content was taken. This will display the following user warning template:

==Speedy deletion nomination of [[:{{{1}}}]]==

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on [[:{{{1}}}]], requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A2 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a foreign language article that was copied and pasted from another Wikimedia project, or was transwikied out to another project. Please see Wikipedia:Translation to learn about requests for, and coordination of, translations from foreign-language Wikipedias into English.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by [[:{{{1}}}|visiting the page]] and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.
