This template is used to tag pages for speedy deletion under the speedy deletion criteria, specifically CSD G12. There is a separate template for each criterion – see the table to the right.

This template places the page into the categories: Candidates for speedy deletion, and Candidates for speedy deletion as copyright violations.

Usage

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

Parameters

{{db-g12|url=sourceurl}}

Where sourceurl is the full URL of the page from which the content was taken.

{{db-g12|url=sourceurl|url2=sourceurl2}}

{{db-g12|url=sourceurl|url2=sourceurl2|url3=sourceurl3}}

With 2 or 3 source URLs.

{{db-g12|bot=ExampleBot|url=sourceurl}}

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

{{db-g12|url=sourceurl|oldid=123456789}}

Where 123456789 is an old revision ID to be used in the links to Duplication Detector and Earwig's Copyvio Detector.

Author notification

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

{{subst:db-copyvio-notice|PageName|URL|header=1}}

...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 URL with the URL from which the material was plagiarised. 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 G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

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.
