If a deleted article has had its history page temporarily restored by an administrator to facilitate a discussion on Wikipedia:Deletion review, {{TempUndelete}} may be placed on that article page.

Articles which have obtained a "keep" (or "no consensus defaulting to keep") decision on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, but have had that decision appealed on Wikipedia:Deletion review, may be affixed with the template {{Delrev}}. —Encephalon 12:20, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

I removed "If there seems likely to be a strong consensus to undelete and you wish to improve this article meanwhile, please be bold and do so." as the practice is that articles are protected while this template is in use. - brenneman 13:27, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

A suggestion to improve the template[edit]

Navigating an article history is a fairly complex task, especially for somebody who's pretty new to Wikipedia (not uncommon in the case of deletion discussions).

I think this template would be more useful -- an present less of a bureaucratic hurdle -- if it contained a direct link to a revision prior to deletion.

Any objections to adding a parameter that would take a URL, and adding a sentence like the following to the end of the text: "You may wish to view a version of the article from prior to its deletion."

-Pete (talk)


While most of the template is well written, the last line says "You may wish to contribute to the discussion at Deletion review following your inspection.". The term "Deletion review" has not been used before in the template, noting only that "an appeal has been made" without mentioning the location.

To improve this I would change the wording to be as below. Italics and strikethrough are used to denote changes only, I am not proposing to change the formatting from how it is presently:

I'm undecided whether the "at deletion review" text should be inside or outside either the link or the bolding.

I'll implement this change if there are no objections after a few days, although I'll mention this proposal at WT:DRV to hopefully attract input. Thryduulf (talk) 15:18, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

After two weeks with no comments I have implemented this proposal. Thryduulf (talk) 11:12, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Please do not edit...[edit]

Would anybody object to my adding something along the lines of, Please do not edit this page until the review is completed? -- RoySmith (talk) 19:18, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
