Usage

Place {{db-move|1=PAGE TO BE MOVED HERE|2=REASON FOR MOVE}} on the page to be deleted so that the deleting admin knows which page is to be moved to the title and can perform the move.

This template places the page in Category:Candidates for uncontroversial speedy deletion.

If the page to be deleted is a redirect, place {{db-move}} above #REDIRECT (otherwise, the notice would not be displayed). This will effectively break the automatic redirection and make the {{db-move}} notice visible. The link to the target page will still be visible below and can be followed as a soft redirection. The appearance of the soft redirection can be further improved by replacing  #REDIRECT [[linked page]]  with  {{Soft redirect|linked page}}.


Tags a page for speedy deletion in order to move another page to the same title.
