Template:Proposed deletion notify

  (Redirected from Template:PRODWarning)

Proposed deletion of [[:{{{1}}}]]


The article [[:{{{1}}}]] has been proposed for deletion. The proposed deletion notice added to the article should explain why.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on [[|the article's talk page]].

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

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


This template is intended to be used on user talk pages to warn contributors to affected articles that their article has been proposed for deletion using Wikipedia:Proposed deletion. You're encouraged to modify the template as appropriate for unique circumstances.


  • Provide the name of the article as the first unnamed parameter. This is the only required parameter. It will be automatically wiki-linked.
  • concern=message: You can provide a reason for the proposed deletion. If one is not specified, the template will attempt to auto-detect the reason based on the PROD tag on the page. It will automatically be bolded and indented.
  • nowelcome=yes: Suppresses {{First article}} on empty pages (see below).
  • nothanks=yes: Suppresses "Thank you" message when {{First article}} is used.

New users

This template incorporates {{First article if new}}. As result, if you use {{Proposed deletion notify}} on a talk page that does not yet exist (i.e., new user), a {{First article}} message will be inserted before the Proposed deletion notify notice itself. You can provide a nowelcome=yes parameter to {{Proposed deletion notify}} to suppress this behavior. This template also accepts the nothanks=yes parameter, and passes it to {{First article if new}}.
