This template is used to tag pages for speedy deletion under the speedy deletion criteria, specifically CSD F7. There is a separate template for each criterion – see the table to the right.

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-f7}}

The |rationale= parameter is optional and left blank. Nevertheless, if used, the text will appear red except blue links.

{{db-f7|bot=ExampleBot}}

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:badfairuse|PageName|header=1|CurrentTag}}

...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, and CurrentTag with the name of the image copyright tag used on the image. This will display the following user warning template:

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

A tag has been placed on [[:{{{1}}}]] requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a non-free file with a clearly invalid licensing tag; or it otherwise fails some part of the non-free content criteria. If you can find a valid tag that expresses why the file can be used under the fair use guidelines, please replace the current tag with that tag. If no such tag exists, please add the {{Non-free fair use}} tag, along with a brief explanation of why this constitutes fair use of the file. If the file has been deleted, you can re-upload it, but please ensure you place the correct tag on it.

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.
