Standard deletion template

Usage: {{delete|reason --~~~~}}

This page puts a bold red warning at the top of the page and adds the page to the Category:Candidates for deletion.

It should be added as the very first line on pages that you believe should be deleted from the wiki. This includes pages that no longer serve a useful purpose, pages whose content may be inappropriate (but which you are not sure about) and any other deletion that is not obviously a candidate for speedy deletion.

This should not be used on pages that are obvious candidates for speedy deletion (e.g. vandalism, spam, etc.) as all new pages and page edits are routinely examined by a human for such things and dealt with promptly.

Example

This Page is a Candidate for Deletion

This page is a candidate for deletion. The given reason is: No reason supplied! This notice should remain for a minimum of 1 week after it was placed on the page. If discussion is still ongoing, it should remain until a consensus is reached, after which the page will either be deleted or this notice removed. If you disagree with its deletion, please discuss your reasons on its associated talk page, as applicable. Remember to check if anything links here and the page history before deleting.
