Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is used to tag pages for speedy deletion under the speedy deletion criteria, specifically CSD G7. 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 by user.


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



This is the most basic form of the template.


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


Where DeletionRationale is a specific explanation of why the page should be deleted, which will be displayed in red after the standard text. A rationale must be provided to delete user talk pages.

CSS and Javascript pages

To request the deletion of a CSS or JavaScript page – a non-talk page whose name ends with .css or .js – use the following format:
/* {{db-g7}} */
The deletion message will not be displayed, but the page will be categorised into Category:Candidates for speedy deletion by user, where an administrator will be able to find it.
