Information icon Hi, Uw-csd. Thanks for patrolling new pages. I've declined your deletion request for a page that you tagged for speedy deletion, because the criterion you used or the reason you gave does not cover this kind of page. Please take a moment to read the new tutorial for patrollers, criteria for speedy deletion, and particularly, the section covering non-criteria. Such pages are best tagged with proposed deletion or proposed deletion for biographies of living persons, or sent to the appropriate deletion discussion. Thanks!

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


{{subst:uw-csd|page name|criterion|optional concern/reason}}
  • "Page name" is the complete name of the page, including namespace if needed (e.g. "Example", "User:Example", "Wikipedia:Example"). This is mandatory.
  • "Criterion" is the shortcut of the criterion that was used to tag the page, e.g. A7, G1, F9, U1 etc. If this is not specified, the mention will be omitted, unless the parameter "nocriterion=yes" is specified, in which case the template will return "without specifying a criterion for speedy deletion" (So specify nocriterion=yes only if {{delete}} or {{db}} was used without parameters or specifying incorrect reasons that are not speedy deletion reasons).
  • "Optional concern/reason" can be specified to point a specific mistake with a certain tag, e.g. "A7 does not apply to software." If left blank, the template will return "the criterion you used does not cover this kind of page or the reason you specified is not a valid reason for speedy deletion."
