Template:proposed deletion is used to tag articles and files for proposed deletion where it is believed that the deletion would be uncontroversial. If consensus would need to be reached first, then the articles for deletion or files for discussion process is probably more appropriate. You may also wish to check to see if the page meets the criteria for speedy deletion as well.

If this template is removed from the page and the removal was not vandalism, then do not replace it. See WP:CONTESTED for more information.

This template also works for proposing the deletion of books in the Book: namespace, however, to propose the deletion of books in the userspace, please see Template:Book prod.

Usage

Place the following text at the top of the page being proposed for deletion.

{{subst:proposed deletion|concern=concern}}

Make sure to replace concern with a brief rationale why the page is being proposed for deletion. The template must be substituted, i.e. subst: must be used, otherwise an error will appear. When posted correctly, an emphatic 'proposed for deletion' notice will appear at the top of the page.

When saving the page, ensure that the edit summary states that you have proposed deletion. You may also wish to post further information on the page's talk page.

Extended syntax

  • help: pass help=off to hide the message to the nominator about notifying the author. Note: This also hides the administrator help (when the PROD template is 7 days i.e. expired), which consists of a delete button.
