This page has been labelled for deletion.
The given reason is: specify reason.
This normally means the page title is a bad one or the content may have been spam or a trojan trap. Senseful content possibly has been moved somewhere better.

If a page title is vaguely meaningful, the page should perhaps be a redirect, or hold a small summary for historical interest instead.

The page should now be empty apart from this message. Remember to check if anything links here and the page history before deleting. Please fix any pages linking to here.



[edit] About this template - Procedure for deleting wiki pages

Use this template with the syntax:

{{delete|reason}}

Use it to delete a page, when a page definitely and unequivocally should be deleted:

check the links to the page with "Special:WhatLinksHere", and correct the links in all linked pages
Replace the entire contents of the page with {{delete|reason}}
give a reason for the deletion in the 'Summary' field when you make this edit
subscribe with --~~~~

If the page title still holds some meaning but the contents of the page are mostly out-of-date or otherwise deserves deleting... well then fix it! Edit the page. Delete the content. Write something different in its place. Don't use this template.

All the pages get listed in Category:Labelled for deletion. It will help the wiki sysops to deal with all these, if this delete template is only used in cases where the community has agreed upon the decision to delete, or where individuals believe (in good faith) that there could be no reason for anyone to disagree with the deletion.
