This template is used to tag pages for speedy deletion under more than one of the speedy deletion criteria There is a separate template for each criterion – see the table to the right. Only codes with "Yes" in the Sppt column are supported by this template.

This template should be used when 2 or more speedy reasons both apply: for example a page may be both a copyright violation and blatant promotion, or both about a person with no asserted significance and an attack page. Listing both reasons avoids an editor going to trouble to fix one problem only to find the result re-tagged for speedy deletion for another reason. It also makes the scope of the problem clearer to the reviewing admin, who must consider whether to delete.

This template places the page in the category Candidates for speedy deletion, and in other specific categories depending on the particular criteria specified.

Usage

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

Please consider notifying the user who created the page being tagged, and of any users who may have contributed to it substantially, with the {{db-notice-multiple}} template. See the template page for instructions on how to use it.

Parameters

Specify as unnamed parameters the list of criteria which apply to the page being tagged. For example, if a page is both promotional and about a non-notable person or group, use

{{Db-multiple|G11|A7}}

Use the codes from the first column of the table to the right.

Some of the specific speedy deletion templates support or require additional named parameters. Specifically, for G6, G7 and G8 a "rationale=" parameter is permitted, and for G10, a "blanked=" parameter is permitted; for G12 and F9 a "url=" parameter is required; for A2 a "source=" parameter is required; for A10 a "article=" parameter is required. Simply specify these with the relevant parameter name should any of these codes be used.

Some of the specific speedy deletion templates support one or more unnamed positional parameters. These are not currently supported by this template.

The parameter "category=no" should be used on test pages (pages testing or demonstrating the use of this template) to avoid putting them in any of the speedy deletion categories.
