AfD footer[edit]

This section describes how to list articles and their associated talk pages for deletion. See the related pages for templates, categories, redirects, stub types, pages in the Wikipedia namespace, user pages, or images and other media, or use copyright violation where applicable. As well, note that deletion may not be needed for problems such as pages written in foreign languages, duplicate pages, and other cases. Use Wikipedia:Proposed mergers for discussion of mergers.

Only a registered, logged-in user can complete steps II and III. (Autoconfirmed registered users can also use the Twinkle tool to make nominations.) If you are unregistered, you should complete step I, note the justification for deletion on the article's talk page, then post a message at Wikipedia talk:Articles for deletion requesting that someone else complete the process.

You must sign in to nominate pages for deletion. If you do not sign-in, or you edit anonymously, you will get stuck part way through the nomination procedure.
I.
Put the deletion tag on the article.
  • Insert {{subst:afd1}} at the top of the article.
If this article has been nominated before, use {{subst:afdx|2nd}} or {{subst:afdx|3rd}} etc.
  • Do not mark the edit as minor.
  • Include in the edit summary
    AfD: Nominated for deletion; see [[Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/NominationName]]
    replacing NominationName with the name of the page being nominated.
The NominationName is normally the article name (PageName), but if it has been nominated before, use "PageName (2nd nomination)" or "PageName (3rd nomination)" etc.)
  • You can check the "Watch this page" box to follow the page in your watchlist. This allows you to notice if the AfD tag is removed.
  • Save the page.
II.
Create the article's deletion discussion page.

The resulting AfD box at the top of the article should contain a link to "Preloaded debate" in the AfD page.

  • Click that link to open the article's deletion discussion page for editing. Some text and instructions will appear.
  • Give a reason for the deletion and a category for the debate (instructions are on that page).

OR

  • Click the link saying "this article's entry" to open the deletion-debate page.
  • Insert this text:
    {{subst:afd2 | pg=PageName | cat=Category | text=Why the page should be deleted}} ~~~~
    Replace PageName with the name of the page, Category with a letter from the list M, O, B, S, W, G, T, F, and P to categorize the debate, and Why the page should be deleted with the reasons the page should be deleted.
  • Add a deletion sorting template to the nomination, if appropriate.
  • You can check "Watch this page" to follow the debate.
  • Use an edit summary such as
    Creating deletion discussion for [[PageName]]
  • Save the page.
III.
Notify users who monitor AfD discussion.
  • Open the articles for deletion log page for editing.
  • At the top of the list on the log page (there's a comment indicating the spot), insert:
    {{subst:afd3 | pg=NominationName}}
    replacing NominationName appropriately (use "PageName", "PageName (2nd nomination)", etc.).
  • Link to the discussion page in your edit summary:
    Adding [[Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/NominationName]]
  • Save the page. Your insertion will be expanded to the same form as the preceding lines in the file: {{Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/NominationName}}.

ReportVandal[edit]

I.
Warn User
  Before adding a vandal here be sure the user has been warned.
On the user's talk page, warn that his/her behavior is not appropriate and is considered vandalism. Use the appropriate warning template, adding 'subst:' before each. For example, instead of using {{test}}, use {{subst:test}}. This reduces server load and prevents accidental blanking of the template. Wait to see if the vandalism continues. Only add users to the list who continue to vandalize after being warned.
However, users known to be vandals (those who vandalize the same article with similar material, for instance) may be reported immediately.
II.
Determine Severity
  Determine the severity of the vandalism:
Severe: Hateful; critical subtle edits (such as changing dates); stating lies; redirects; etc.
Moderate: High-profile (such as article blanking); spam linking; disruptive; etc.
Low: "Stupid" edits (such as adding the word "penis" to every sentence); non-critical subtle edits; etc.
III.
Add Vandal

  Using the edit button next to the appropriate section, add the vandal at the top of the list.

Enter the following text:
{{vandal|IP or username of vandal}} ~~~~
If the vandal has a username with spaces in it, instead use:
{{vandal|Username with spaces|Username_with_underscores}} ~~~~
If the vandal is operating under an anonymous IP address, report under IP Addresses. If the vandal is a logged-in user, report under Registered users. Include a brief description of the nature of the vandalism. Use the vandal account name or IP address as your edit summary.
IV.
Monitor Vandal
  Determine that the vandal has been warned on his or her talk page. If vandalism persists after five minutes:
Determine if the vandal has been blocked by visiting Special:Ipblocklist.
If the vandal was blocked, but vandalism persists, file a new report under Possible sockpuppets.
If the vandal was not blocked, visit WP:AIV and post the report there.
