The Criteria for speedy deletion (CSD) criteria have been written to tightly define what does and does not qualify for speedy deletion. This is done to ensure that only those articles where clear consensus for deletion exists will be speedily deleted. The criteria are strict because careless or hasty speedy deleters can do just as much, if not more damage to the project than vandals. Poor quality CSD'ers can chase off quality editors by inappropriately deleting their articles. This can be frustrating to a newbie editor and can tarnish Wikipedia's image. Per the policy, Where reasonable doubt exists, discussion using another method under the deletion policy should occur instead.
- Patent nonsense. Pages consisting purely of incoherent text or gibberish with no meaningful content or history. This does not include poor writing, partisan screeds, obscene remarks, vandalism, fictional material, material not in English, poorly translated material, implausible theories, or hoaxes; some of these, however, may be deleted as vandalism in blatant cases.
- Total nonsense, i.e., text or random characters that have no assignable meaning at all. This includes sequences such as "sdfgdsfkgdshgdkhgdsklhsklgroflmaolololol;;;'dsfgdfg", in which keys of the keyboard have been pressed with no regard for what is typed.
- Content that, while apparently meaningful after a fashion, is so completely and irredeemably confused that no reasonable person can be expected to make any sense of it whatsoever.
Patent nonsense is NOT code for a hoax or vandalism, it is for when the material is so convoluted that you cannot make heads or tails of what the author is saying. If the article is readable and makes sense, even if the idea represented is nonsense, then it doesn't qualify because G1 explicitly excludes implausible theories, vandalism, and hoaxes. In other words, "President Lincoln was born in 2008, but travelled back in time to lead the north to victory over the south." It may be nonsense, but it is not patent nonsense and is explicitly excluded from G1. I reviewed 25 cases of G1 deletions. In 6 (24%) case, the G1 was appropriately applied. In 7 (28%) cases, I felt that the article should have been sent to AFD instead. In 12 (48%) cases, I felt the article should be deleted, but on a different criterion than the one given.

The house of Cedars is a block in Broadgate Park in self catered accomadation at Nottingham University. Cedars is situated in the Upper Court region of Broadgate park, also known as 'The Ghetto'. The building includes 6 flats, each consisting of 5 bedrooms, 1 kitchen and 1 bathroom. However, this also includes one larger room. Traditionally, the block includeds 3 male flats and 3 female flats.
The 2007-2008 generation of Cedars with live long in the memory, this year saw the block dubbed 'Seedy Seedy Cedars' by locals due to its notable promiscuous activities. The incest list stetches far and wide and with relationships continuing up to today shows the deep rooted nature within these individuals.
Flat 23 also known as 'The Others' due to their severe lack of social skills and failed attempts at integration. This lacklustre approach was primarily due to a symptom also known as the 'second year slump' however, it was commonly assumed that during the 1 year tenure the Flat 23 residents failed miserably in what should have been an uplifting experiance. However, then came sunlight, then came thunder, then came...Rob. Rob rejuvinated the house to such a degree whereby names were finally put to faces among the Cedars faithful.
FLAT 23 (The Others) -Room 5:Zen...no nickname, just some guy. -Room 4:'Standard White Guy', also known as Russell. -Room 3:Ola, we believe this is his real name, according to Rob's sources. -Room 2:'Bandanna Man', also known as Charlie. -Room 1:Rob Dolan
FLAT 24 (The Downies)
-Room 5:Josh Fleming also known as jflem or flem. -Room 4:Dan Maney, also known as 'Dan the Man' in the early stages of his tenure in the building. -Room 3:Chris Gibbs, can be reffered to either as Chris, or bigboy gibbs. -Room 2:Matthew Butcher...some ginger guy found lurking, and generally gadding about.
Review of Deletion - PROD
The above is clearly not a case of G1. It fits neither of the definitions of nonsense. The article is easily understandable---it does not consist purely of incoherent text or gibberish with no meaningful content or history. It is explicitly excluded because G1 does not cover implausible theories, hoaxes, vandalism, fictious material, poorly written material.
The article probably could be deleted per A7, as a weak argument could be made that it is about the tenants of the building, but in all reality, it should be prodded and if contested taken to AFD.

Review of Deletion - G1 ok
I can live with this being deleted G1. In my personal opinion, it would be better deleted as G3 Vandalism.
Naet_returned is one of my favorite characters on Diablo. If i recall correctly it was a level 85 sorc. Its main power was frozen orb. This character was played for several hours. In one summer i played with this character for maybe 140 hours!!But all good things must come to an end, : ( the ladder reset making all those hours seem so pointless.... but then i started my new character with the name naet. Bringing back the original name that started it all. Once again a sorc but this time i wanted to wait a bit before picking. Which if you have ever played the game, you know its a very difficult thing to do. But if you wait long again you can make a very experienced character that might actually make the upper ranks of ladder. My friend bailking had the number one zon on east ladder!! yea if you know this game you are probably jealous : ) but bak to my character, i made it to lvl 13 before using any stats or skills but still my character was not as good as i wanted him to be..... but i guess that is life. But i still had faith that i would be able to get a high lvl character hopefully 85-88. SPOILER ALERT!!!! i got a lvl 85 it took some time and i payed a guy to help me out. This character was the best i have ever had. With it i found 3 sojs made 1000 fg and did several 100 mf runs!! I would like to take some time and give credit where credit is due. 3 of my friends played Diablo with me and they had all better characters then me but i would have to say Bailking would be the greedy one mattkkm and A-nav were both very wealthy in fg(forum gold or as i call it fake gold)i would have to say A-nav was the most generous. So that is the story of My adventure in the world of D2 it was a great time with lots of great memories and i wouldnt take bak all the hours i spent on that game!!!!!
Review of Deletion - PROD
Deleting this per G1 is questionable, but I won't say wrong. It could be argued that this fits the second parameter of Nonsense. At the same time, however, G1 explicitly excludes poor writing (which this is) and fictional material (which this is).
Personally, I think this would be better deleted as A7, but even that is a stretch. That would mean arguing that the article is about the author and his exploits on Diablo, which would mean it clearly fails A7.
But in reality it is a report, so PROD is the most reliable.
Review of Deletion - A1
Deletion of this per G1 is inappropriate. The article, while poorly written, is more or less coherent. It does not, however, provide enough context to make sense. Thus, A1 would be an acceptable reason for deletion.

You could say that there is realy no third fist and that its just a joke. So realy there is no third fist enles your talking about the two above.

Again, this is a marginal call, but I can live with the G1.

Deletion review - A1
G1 is not appropriate here. The text is not so completely and irredeemable confused that no reasonable person can be expected to make any sense of it whatsoever. This would be a perfect candidate for A1---lack of context. You could also argue that it is an attack page as it appears to be an attack against two people.

Deletion Review - G3
As G1 explicitly excludes vandalism, implausible theories, and hoaxes, this does not qualify. It makes sense, it just isn't believable. An argument could be made for G3---vandalism, as the author included lolz and other signs of vandalism.
The Shuaib's family is the sexiest of them all. It's a hereditary character which is especially prominent in "Anam Shuaib". It's the universal truth.

G1??? Under what criteria does this fit G1??? Now, A7 yes.
Ice Turtles are Gigantic Turtles that live under the water until winter. When the ice freezes then the ice turtles start to break out so they can eat and breed out on the land.
Their diet consists of fish, and different plants such as tree leaves and they also eat geese.
Ice Turtles are now going extinct because they used to live when the dinosaurs were around and most of their population is dying out and they also run up to 90 to 125 miles an hour.
They are very friendly and come out in the dead of night.
Ok I made it up I was just having fun no one authorized this page I am truly sorry
Deletion review - G2
G1? Again, this clearly does not fit G1. G1 explicitly excludes hoaxs and vandalism. Per the last sentence, this is clearly either a hoax or vandalism. While it could be deleted un G3, I think G2 is the ideal way to delete it. I might even not give the author a warning for this, if it was the only page and the last line was written in a separate edit. Eg, the author created the page as a test, then realized that it was made.
The Cool Bean
--The Cool Beginnings--
The Cool Bean is very simply a bean that is cool, that was created in a dreary classroom from the mind of a teenager. The Cool Bean has been asked many times if he really is "cool" or if he even knows what "cool" is. He has always claimed that he is cool, and that he knows cool better than anyone else. He claims that the term "Cool Beans" was created by him, but that cannot be proved.
About The Cool Bean
The Cool Bean was born in Chicago, Illinois on November 11, 2008. He claims that he will never grow or shrink, and it is a rare disease that he has discovered. The cool Bean is, ironically, allergic to beans and claims that he is fortunately not allergic to himself. The Cool Bean also claims that he will not get married any time soon. He plans to be a bachelor for the rest of his life.
The Cool Bean LOVES Emoticons like...
- D happy
- ) smile
- ( frown
- O OMIGOSH!!!
- B Hillbilly
- o( Clown Frown
- -) Basic Face
Deletion Review - G3
I don't think this should have been speedied per G1. It does not fit either one of the definitions pertinent to WP:NONSENSE. Similarly, G1 excludes implausible theories, hoaxes, and vandalism. It could be argued that it fits A7, but that would be a stretch. While I would like to accept that stretch, I couldn't because A7 explicitly requires the figure be real; and the article indicates that it was created by a teenager.
Note that hoaxes are generally not speedy deletion candidates. It is usually not enough for just one or two editors to investigate a hoax, as there have been cases in the past where something has been thought to have been a hoax by several editors, but has turned out to be true, and merely obscure. Suspected hoaxes should be investigated thoroughly, and only in extreme cases of blatant and obvious hoaxes should articles be speedy deleted as vandalism. That being said, I think this is a clear case of G3.
Peru, officially called the “Republic of Peru,” is a country in western South America. Peru is bordered on the north by Ecuador and Columbia, on the east by Brazil, on the southeast by Bolivia, on the south by Chile and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. The capital and largest city of Peru is Lima. This country’s official language is spanish although a immense number of Peruvians speak a language called Quechua. From the 2007 censor the population of Peru altogether is 28,220,764.
The Peruvian’s independence from Spain was declared on July 28, 1821. But it was recognized on the nineth of december in the year of 1824. This event is celebrated for two days and both days are said to be national holidays. The fesivals are always fun and jolly. In Peru the fesives begin with the president’s words to the nation. After that, as all Independence celebrations in the world go, they hoist the national flag followed by millitary parades, bullfights and lastly fireworks. Besides that, there are exibhitions and carnivals to go to, buy and look at national products and eat various types of food. However, the second day of Peru’s Independence –Day is celebrated mostly with their families and friends who get to gether to mostly have some fun.
One of the many major holidays in Peru is celebrated on the first day of January. It is celebrated as “Entrega de Varas.” It is an official and ancient ceremony that gives the oppurtunity to see the highland native elders of the city of Cusco in full traditional costumes. The costumes are of different colors and shapes from city to city. Some cities have their women wear black skirts embrioded with black and red. Other cities have their women wear layers of petticoats made from cotton which can be embroidered with gold and silver threads under their skirts. They would sing and dance in their own ways beautifully and elegantly. Throughout the festival, Chicha or maize beer and other beverages are consumed. The fun and excitement in the grand ‘Plaza de Armas’ which is in the center of the city is as it was in the Inca times.
Another major occurrence takes place yearly on throughout the whole month of October. This event is called “Our Lord of Miracles” or the “Purple Christ.” This day is called this, because of an immense earthquake that took place and destroyed the capital of Peru but, amazingly a picture of the Purple Christ was unaffected and unharmed. On this day a painting of a dark colored Christ is carried on an elaborate bier through the streets of the city. There are concerts and fireworks that brighten the night’s sky. Many admirers and devotees crowd the streets drawn by the saint’s reputation for healing. This is an overwhelming sight, filled with emotion and alive with the saint’s color, a rich purple. I don’t know what type of music Peruvians listen to or what they wear at that time. This is an event full of Latin flavor.

This is one of the worst applications of speedy deletion that I've seen. The article should be sent to AFD or PRODDED. Possibly tagged with hoax, if it isn't true, but as is, it looks more or less legit.

Deletion Review - PROD
G1 explicitly excludes hoaxes, vandalism, or implausible theories. G1 calls for Gibberish, which this is not. Or G1 calls for patent nonsense which is is so completely and irredeemably confused that no reasonable person can be expected to make any sense of it whatsoever. This doesn't fit that defintion either.
The Super Devil is a character from The Family Guy---which means that this isn't necessarily vandalism. As sad as it may seem, this is an article that should be prodded or sent to AfD. Or cleaned up.
[name removed] is an insane thing. Nobody really knows what it is. If it is a man or a woman. At ITHT (Insane Thing Help Team) we are trying so hard to try out. It has a man's voice and the hair of a man. But is a Mrs. ,claims to have a husband ,and wears womens clothes. It stands there menacingly and smiles at you creepily. Sometimes it makes odd squeaking noises. But enjoys smiling. I once waved at it and it smiled widely and said "hi". We now can communicate with it and we know that it speaks English. It has built a hover craft that can only lift small things. My question is why not just point a fan at the ground? Or jump.....? I have a belief that it goes out at night and hunts for raccoons. It hunts them with just a knife. No gun or bow an arrow. When hunting raccoons [name removed] hopes to find a sasquach out in the wilderness. It will then name it [adulterated version of name removed]. It will feed it the raccoons meat but then use the raccoons fur as a hat. When waved at it the one day it began to grow some warmth in its body. It realized what it feels like to be cared about. M. Bake then put me on it's speed dial as number one. M. Bake will call me randomly just to breathe into the phone. It is so happy anymore. One person is being abused by [name removed]. [name removed] says good morning to everybody . But this person. It will say it to every body in front and behind this person but not to the persons face. [name removed] is rude. We all pity the person not getting said hi to because without a good morning from [name removed] in the morning your day is going to be very very very very bad. [name removed] you are weird.

Deletion Review - G10
While this is poorly written, G1 explicitly excludes poorly written articles. It also excludes vandalism and hoaxes. This is not so incomprehensible that it fits the definition of patent nonsense, so G1 is not an appropriate rationale.
The article is, however, an attack page against somebody named [name removed]. Clear case of G10.
Alien Magma was a strong alien which nearly killed Ultraseven on the first two episodes of Ultraman Leo. Alien Magma has a sword on his right hand that has strong powers like controlling Red and Black Gillas, and a lazer (requires chaging).
Height: 57 meters Weight: 22,000 tons
Alien Magma first appeared in Ultraman Leo in episodes 1, 2, and 30. The Alien Magma species kill for sport and killed all of Leo's people, exept him, Ron, and Astra. An Alien Magma agent, with Red and Black Gillas, is sent to Earth and capture Ultraseven. Ultraseven was about to die before Leo came. Ultraman Leo killed the Gillas and chased Alien Magma off Earth. Several months later, another Alien Magma was sent to Earth.
Alien Magma reappears in the show Ultraman Mebius. Two Alien Magma's appear fighting on an incoming comet against Zamshaa, with the both losing. Before geting cut in two, the younger brother claims that he was a brother to the original Alien Magma as they were colliding towards Earth.
Deletion Review - AFD and Keep!
Not only should this article not have been deleted G1, but it probably would survive an AfD! Or at worse, resulted in a redirect!
[Name removed] is one of the current anchors for Channel One News, notable for her interviews, campaign coverage, and climbing the glaciers of Bolivia. She joined the Channel One anchor team in 2007, and gained popularity in December 2008, when internet savvy teens found her story on Wikipedia humorous and showed that she does not understand how Wikipedia's online community actually functions. At the end of that story she remarked that she had no Wikipedia page of her own, causing teenagers across America to create a [Name removed] page, as a joke. It has become one of the more well known memes among high school teens. 
Deletion review - AFD/G10
Not only does this not fit any of the criteria for G1, it even makes a claim to notability avoiding an A7 fate. The article might be deleted as an attack page. It could also be sent to AfD (sans the personal attack).

"The hamster is watching you." This is a very common sentence founded by Marisa von Doodleman. Not many people understand the meaning of this saying, but really it is a warning. I caution you when you here this sentence spoken to you. It is a message from the Haroldonic. The Haroldonic is a hamster in Viking mythology. This hamster is said to be god over all things (this has been scientificaly proven). When you recive this message it is telling you that you must flee from where you live for you have displaeased the hamster god and you must find a place to hide if you want to live. This is a test of corse, because you can't hide from Haroldonic. For he sees all. He wants to weed out all of the unworthy people that live on his earth and only leave the ones that are brave and smart. So beware all of you people, do not displease the holy one, the fuzzy one, the hamster one. Haroldonic.

International Turley Unit
An ITU (International Turley Unit) is a measure of hypothetical mass of an object, esp. bananas. It is the official unit of weight of the country of Yugoslavia. It was reached after long, hypothetical quadratic equations were entered into the computer program Deep Blue. The only thing that ITUs generally measure are the red flying hippopotamuses of Scotland Yard along with the common use of banana cigarettes. Scientists were able to find it after years of studying the anthropological evidence of the latest *NSYNC CD because of its special atomic coding techniques. the only object that equals exactly one ITU is a rare higher primate known as a Turley. The ability to lift a Turley was regarded as magic by the Aboriginal tribes of maghdi. The only other group to label it "magic" was the Bureau of Magic and Spellcasting, and Chuch Norris. Chuck Norris is the only person to ever lift an ITU.
