This template is used to tag pages for speedy deletion under the speedy deletion criteria. There is a separate template for each criterion – see the table to the right. This template is namespace-specific: in categories, it calls {{db-c1}}, and everywhere else it calls {{db-a3}}.

If this template is used on a category, it places the page into Category:Empty categories awaiting deletion and Candidates for speedy deletion four days after it is tagged. If it is used anywhere else, it places the page in the category Candidates for speedy deletion as empty pages and Candidates for speedy deletion immediately.

Usage

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

Parameters

{{db-empty}}

This is the most basic form of the template.

{{db-empty|bot=ExampleBot}}

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