Information icon Hello Uw-hasty. Thanks for patrolling new pages – it's a very important task! I'm just letting you know, however, that you shouldn't tag pages as lacking context (CSD A1), or content (CSD A3), moments after they are created. It's best to wait at least 10–15 minutes for more content to be added if the page is very short, and the articles should not be marked as patrolled. Tagging such pages in a very short space of time may drive away well-meaning contributors, which is not good for Wikipedia. Attack pages (G10), blatant nonsense (G1), copyright violations (G12) and pure vandalism/blatant hoaxes (G3) should of course be tagged and deleted immediately. Thanks.

Usage[edit]

This template must be substituted and takes one required parameter: the name of the page marked for speedy deletion by the tagger. Failing to include either will break this template's display.

  • No Header {{subst:Uw-hasty|(name of tagged page)}}.
  • Linked Header {{subst:Uw-hasty|(name of tagged page)|header=1}}.
  • Own Header {{subst:Uw-hasty|(name of tagged page)|header=1|header-text=(header text)}}.
