Do we need db-p1?[edit]

Test version of CSD templates[edit]

Does there exist either a parameter for the existing templates or a separate set of templates that place a CSD template on a page but do not automatically categorise it for deletion etc? I ask because I want to test how various templates work (especially {{db-multi}}). Thanks! crh23 (talk) 11:57, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

@Crh23: The documentation says category=no can be used for testing. -- John of Reading (talk) 12:37, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
@John of Reading: Ahh, I saw that but misinterpreted it. Is there a similar parameter for the other CSDs? - crh23 (talk) 13:00, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
@Crh23: I think that the others test for nocat=yes, though the documentation doesn't mention it. If the test is only for a few minutes, then a message similar to this version of my sandbox should be sufficient. Or, depending on what you are trying to do, you may find that previewing your test may be enough, without having to save the edit. -- John of Reading (talk) 13:08, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
@John of Reading: nocat=yes does indeed work, thanks! - crh23 (talk) 17:43, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Empty categories[edit]

I just revised Template:Db-c1 to change the empty period from four to seven days, as agreed by the community. I would appreciate if a technically minded person could check my edit and make sure I did things correctly. Thanks, Oiyarbepsy (talk) 04:56, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

@Oiyarbepsy: Have the bots been updated? --Redrose64 (talk) 19:28, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
@Redrose64:I posted at the Bot owner's noticeboard and Twinkle about it, but aside from that, I don't know what bots are involved. I figured out that User:Joe's Null Bot purges categories and notified its operator, but that bot doesn't require any updates. Oiyarbepsy (talk) 04:05, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
OK. --Redrose64 (talk) 10:02, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

The CUSWPC club is a 125 year old institution. I created this page to document the history and structure of the club and to document the results of the annual variety matches in the sport of swimming between the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge. I would appreciate slightly more time before the page is repeated deleted before I can add the required information and citations.

Swimmingguy2016, you're in the wrong place. I will post more on your talk page. --NeilN talk to me 23:47, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

Db-a9 clarification[edit]

In addition to "where no artists have an article", that text should also include "or where the artist's article is itself tagged for speedy deletion for lacking notability". GSMR (talk) 14:28, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

@GSMR: Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit template-protected}} template. The text you proposed doesn't agree with WP:A9, so you should get consensus to change that wording before we change the template. --Ahecht (TALK
