'''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.
+
 
+
<nowiki>{{Deletion|reason}}</nowiki>
+
 
+
You can override the default discussion page with a second optional argument:
+
 
+
<nowiki>{{Deletion|reason|Talk:Alternative Page}}</nowiki>
+
 
+
You can point to a specific section in the default talk page with the named {{ic|section}} parameter:
+
 
+
<nowiki>{{Deletion|reason|section}}</nowiki>
+
 
+
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.
+
 
+
====Example==== <!-- unlike most other template examples, this one is not called directly so as not to categorize the page for deletion; please update the example if updating the code -->
+
 
+
<nowiki>{{Deletion|This is just a demonstration template.}}</nowiki>
+
