This template is used to tag pages for speedy deletion under the speedy deletion criteria, specifically CSD G1. There is a separate template for each criterion – see the table to the right.

This template places the page into the categories: Candidates for speedy deletion, and Candidates for speedy deletion as nonsense pages.

Usage

The template should be placed at the top of the page to be deleted.

Parameters

{{db-g1}}

This is the most basic form of the template.

{{db-g1|bot=ExampleBot}}

Bot accounts will specify the |bot= parameter to notify the reviewing admin that the page was tagged by an automated process.
This is the TemplateData documentation for this template used by VisualEditor and other tools; see the monthly error report for this template.

Author notification

If you nominate a page for deletion under this criterion, please consider placing the following code:

{{subst:nonsensepage|PageName|header=1}}

...on the User talk page of the main contributor(s) to the page, replacing PageName with the name of the page being marked for deletion. This will display the following user warning template:

==Speedy deletion nomination of [[:{{{1}}}]]==

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on [[:{{{1}}}]], requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to have no meaningful content or history, and the text is unsalvageably incoherent. If the page you created was a test, please use the sandbox for any other experiments you would like to do.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by [[:{{{1}}}|visiting the page]] and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
