Template:Notg4

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Hello Notg4. Thanks for the newpages patrol! Regarding [[:{{{1}}}]] which you tagged for speedy deletion as a repost, I just wanted to drop by to tell you that CSD G4 only applies to pages previously deleted after discussion, at an XfD forum such as at AfD. It does not apply to pages that were only previously speedy deleted, as this article was. Note also that even when an article was previously deleted on the merits, G4 is only applicable where the reposted article is substantially identical to the deleted version and any changes in the recreated page do not address the reasons for which the material was deleted. Cheers. ~~

Usage[edit]

This template is intended to be used on a user talk page where the user incorrectly tagged an article as a repost under CSD G4 when the article was only previously speedily deleted, rather than was deleted after debate at an XfD. This is a common mistake made by new newpages patrollers.

Syntax: {{subst:Notg4|article name|header=1}} ~~~~. Including the article name is not optional, whereas placing the header ("header=1") in the second parameter is optional.
