Hello. Per the notice you received above, a tag had been placed on [[:{{{1}}}]] requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. Please note that after review, I have removed the deletion request so you do not need to worry about this page being speedily deleted. However, speedy deletion is not the only deletion processes on Wikipedia; my removal does not prevent users from invoking other, longer term deletion methods, such as for an article, proposing its deletion or nominating it at articles for deletion. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

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

PurposeEdit

Past experience has shown that many inexperienced users, once informed of a speedy deletion nomination by a warning notice at their talk page, will not realize the speedy tag has been removed until directly informed of that removal, which this template provides. (Note: in a later amendment, the word "removed/removal" was chosen for use in the template, rather than "declined", despite the template's name, as "declined" will not work well for non-admin removals, whereas removed/removal works for both.)

This template is thus placed on the talk page of a user who:

i) created a page that had been tagged for speedy deletion;
ii) who had been warned about the speedy deletion; and
iii) for which the speedy deletion was removed.

This template relieves users of the pall that a pending speedy deletion nomination may be felt as. The use of this template may also save community resources, by avoiding the user making requests at various fora to try to "save" their creation from a speedy deletion nomination that is already moot, e.g., posts at the help desk and Teahouse, {{helpme}} requests, various talk page posts, or the many request we see at WP:REFUND to stop speedies (despite the inappropriateness of that forum for such a request).

UsageEdit

  • This template should always be substituted and will break if transcluded.
  • In addition to header options (below), this template takes two parameters, the first of which is required:
  1. You must place the name of the page you have declined to speedy delete as a first parameter:{{subst:declinedsd|Exact Page Title}}
  2. You can optionally supply the reason you removed the speedy deletion template as a second parameter, which will follow the words "on the basis that" when the parameter is used: {{subst:declinedsd|Page Title|reason for declining}} For model suggested language addressing common reasons for removals, see {{sdd4}}.

Header optionsEdit

  • An automatic header can be placed using: {{subst:declinedsd|Page Title|reason for removal|header=1}}
  • Or the header can be customized using: {{subst:declinedsd|Page Title|reason for removal|header=1|header-text=Your Text}}

Example useEdit

{{subst:declinedsd|Albert Einstein|the article properly indicated importance/significance by noting that the subject won the Nobel Prize in Physics|header=1}}, results in (normally hidden text shown):

Albert Einstein no longer marked for speedy deletionEdit

Hello. Per the notice you received above, a tag had been placed on Albert Einstein requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. Please note that after review, I have removed the deletion request on the basis that the article properly indicated importance/significance by noting that the subject won the Nobel Prize in Physics, so you do not need to worry about this page being speedily deleted. However, speedy deletion is not the only deletion processes on Wikipedia; my removal does not prevent users from invoking other, longer term deletion methods, such as for an article, proposing its deletion or nominating it at articles for deletion.
