This category contains pages tagged with speedy deletion templates. Before speedily deleting a page, take the time to ensure that it meets the criteria for speedy deletion, check the links, the history, and (for images) the file links. If there is any doubt at all, switch the article to a process like Wikipedia:Proposed deletion that allows time for others to review the proposal.
Speedy does not mean immediate. Although many speedy-deletion candidates are processed within a few minutes, more complicated pages may remain in the list for several days.
Pages with attack titles: If you think these titles need redaction, please also check recent versions of User:Cyde/List of candidates for speedy deletion/Subpage (as far back as when the article was tagged); please also check the patrol log, since the page may have been patrolled. Please also note that the author may have been given a warning about this page which (s)he may have removed; and that there may be other incoming links (such as the tagger's own CSD tagging log).

Dated deletion categories
Backlogs larger than 10 days will not appear below due to limitations in the template. Please clear older backlogs before newer ones and check the "master category" once in a while if a category suddenly changes from "huge backlog" to "no backlog" overnight. Although not technically part of the speedy deletion criteria, articles which have been proposed for deletion for more than seven days are also listed here as a matter of convenience.
