This page is a template. It contains no Arch Linux-related information, but should be used as part of other articles. For more information, read Help:Template.

Please do not experiment with this template; you could ruin all pages using this template. If you want to edit this template, copy the text to Template:Sandbox, edit and test it there, and copy it back when it works.

Feel free to voice your opinion regarding this template.

A "deletion" flag used to indicate irrelevant or unhelpful content.

Usage

This template should be added at the beginning of articles or sections being considered for deletion. Ensure to cite specific concerns with the first argument and possibly also on the flagged article's discussion page.

{{Deletion|reason}}

You can override the default discussion page with a second optional argument:

{{Deletion|reason|Talk:Alternative Page}}

Alternatively you can point to a specific section in the default talk page with the named section parameter:

{{Deletion|reason|section=Section name}}

Flagged pages can be found in Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Deletion. If in disagreement, users should counter arguments in favour of deletion or expand/correct offending material to prevent the page being removed entirely.

Note: The talk page is linked throgh an external link: this is to avoid polluting Special:WantedPages when the talk page doesn't exist.

Example

{{Deletion|This is just a demonstration template.}}

Tango-edit-cut.pngThis section is being considered for removal.Tango-edit-cut.png
