Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is used to tag pages for speedy deletion under the speedy deletion criteria, specifically CSD U1. 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 by user.

Usage

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

Parameters

{{db-u1}}

This is the most basic form of the template.

{{db-u1|bot=ExampleBot}}

Bot accounts will specify the |bot= parameter to notify the reviewing admin that the page was tagged by an automated process.

{{db-u1|diff=Diff#}}

Where Diff# is a diff showing where the user requested deletion. This is obviously not required if the user places the template, or if the deletion request is on the listed page.

{{db-u1|rationale=Additional explanation}}

The "rationale" parameter allows specifying an additional explanation for the request.

CSS and Javascript pages

To request the deletion of a CSS or JavaScript page – a page in User: space whose name ends with .css or .js – use the following format:
/* {{db-u1}} */
The deletion message will not be displayed, but the page will be categorised into Category:Candidates for speedy deletion by user, where an administrator will be able to find it.
