This page is for the request of page deletions within the Urban Dead wiki. Due to concerns about loss of data, the ability to delete pages is restricted to system operators. As such, regular users will need to request a deletion from the system operators. For consistency and accountability, system operators also adhere to the guidelines listed here.

Guidelines for Deletion Requests

All Deletion Requests must contain the following information in order to be considered:

  • A link to the page in question. Preferably bolded for visibility. Note that Category and Image links need a colon at the front to turn them into links (ie [[:Category:Category]] and [[:Image:Image.jpg]]).
  • A reason for deletion. This should be short and to the point.
  • A signed datestamp. This can be easily done by adding ~~~~ to the end of your request.

In addition to placing a request on this page, please place the {{delete}} tag on the top of the page that is being recommended for deletion. Please make sure that the original content remains on the page, so that others can judge whether the page is worthy of deletion.

Any deletion request that does not contain these three pieces of information will not be considered, and will be removed by a system operator.

Once the deletion request has been entered, the request shall remain on this page, where it will be voted on for a period of two (2) weeks, as judged by the initial datestamp. At the conclusion of this two weeks, the appropriate action will be taken by a system operator, and at the end of that day the request will be moved into the Archive.

Certain types of pages may be better being scheduled for deletion in order to reduce the amount of red tape and stop this page getting too cluttered. To lodge a request for scheduled deletions, go to UDWiki:Administration/Deletions/Scheduling.

Deletion of pages that match a certain criteria may be better serviced by a request for a Speedy Deletion. Speedy Deletions are for removal of pages that are clearly of no value to the wiki, and do not incur the two week voting requirement. Speedy Deletion requests can be lodged at UDWiki:Administration/Speedy Deletions.

Speedy Deletion Eligibility

To be eligible for a Speedy Deletion Request, the page must fall under at least one of the following criteria:

  1. No Content: The page contains no more than a line or two of content that cannot clearly be expanded, consists of random or incoherent content, or is duplicated elsewhere to no purpose.
  2. Off-Topic: The page is a clearly off-topic page.
  3. Unused Redirect: The page is an unused or underused (ie, only 1-2 pages using the link) redirect.
  4. Empty Category: The page is a Category page that has no entries within it.
  5. Missed Talk Page: The page is a Talk: Page from a previous deletion request that has not been deleted with the request (please note the relevant deletion request if this is so)
    As of 19 May 2010, Crit 5 is now a scheduled deletion.
  6. Deletion Workaround: The page is a duplicate of a page that has been deleted from a previous deletion request (please note the relevant deletion request if this is so). A page that fits this criterion is immediately qualified for deletion without requiring it be nominated on the 'Speedy Deletions' page. Recreating a page that fits this criterion will get you a polite message to stop doing so. Any further infractions of this nature will qualify as vandalism and will be treated as such. Note that criterion 6 does not apply when the page has been restored through Undeletions.
  7. Author Edit Only: The page has been requested for speedy deletion by the original author, and has been edited only by its author. Note that edits by adbots or vandals and reverts caused by them do not count.
  8. User Page: The page is a User subpage that has been requested for speedy deletion by the original author.
  9. Personal Page (Prefix Rule): The page is named after a user without the "User:" or "Journal:" prefixes and its content has been moved to the appropriate User or Journal page. Includes pages that should be User subpages, ie. in-game characters.
    As of 2011, August 29, Crit 9 is now a scheduled deletion.
  10. Unused Template: The page is a template that has existed for at least one week and is currently unused within the wiki.
  11. Non-existent User Page: The page is a User: page for a user that doesn't exist, and any content on the page has been moved to the appropriate User: or Journal: page.
    As of 20 June 2009, Crit 11 is now a scheduled deletion.
  12. Defunct group page: The page is a non-historical group page, it is over two months old, it has not had an update in a month, and is not on the stats page. Such pages will remain in the queue for 5 days to determine their defunct status has been correctly identified. Due to the large number of pages that fit into this criterion, please {{speedydelete12}} on the pages to ensure that they are categorized differently from normal speedy deletion requests.
    As of 2007, September 16, this is no longer a valid criterion.
  13. Missed sub-page: The page is a sub-page from a previous deletion request that has not been deleted with the request, and that serves no individual purpose (please note the relevant deletion request).

A page may also fall under a scheduled deletion and should be posted here if it is missed by the sysops.

Guidelines for Voting on Deletion Requests

  • One vote per user.
  • Voting should take place underneath the request, and each vote should be started with a # with no empty lines inbetween votes.
  • There are four vote types:
    • Delete. For agreement with the deletion request
    • Merge. For indication that the content on the page should be merged with another page (includes an implicit Delete).
    • Speedy Delete. For indication that the page meets one of the Speedy Deletions Criteria (includes an implicit Delete).
    • Keep. For disagreement with the deletion request.
  • The specific vote keyword should be bolded within the lodged vote. Any relevant comments are also allowed, but these should not be bolded.
  • At least one Delete vote must be entered by the deadline in order for a page to be deleted. System operators may not use their own vote after the deadline to delete a page.
  • If more Delete votes are entered than Keep votes, the page will be deleted. In any other circumstance, the page is kept.
  • If 3 Speedy Deletes are lodged, and there are no Keep Votes, the page will be deleted as per Speedy Deletions.

No way. I didn’t even notice that... THE CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER 21:00, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
I always check what links to a page before I delete it, just in case. The 2011 archive popped up in that quick check. Aichon 21:07, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
Logs indicate that it actually was deleted 2011. But was then undeleted by stelar for some reason. THE CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER 23:39, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
Maybe I hit the undo button after I deleted it since the timestamps for the two are only a minute apart? I dunno. stelar Talk|MCM|EBD|Scourge 04:17, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

User:Sister_Mary User:217 User:Audioattack + User:LlIIllIllIIIIllIIllIllIIIIllIl

Im not very welcome around here, so I request my accounts are deleted. I will roll back whatever contributions possible myself unless someone can delete that for me.

Audioattack (talk) 03:35, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

I've speedy-deleted User:Audioattack as a Crit 7. Can another sop confirm I can speedy the others, or does Audioattack have to log in as those accounts and post here to request it? Bob Moncrief EBDW! 15:25, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
I confirm the deletion of this account. LlIIllIllIIIIllIIllIllIIIIllIl (talk) 18:47, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
And this one. Sister Mary (talk) 18:48, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
And another one. 217 (talk) 18:50, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

All speedied as Crit 7. (Btw, all we can do is delete the userpage. The account doesn't get deleted.) Bob Moncrief EBDW! 13:05, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

Though, if they want the accounts blocked, we do allow self-requested perma-bans. Aichon 14:52, 5 June 2018 (UTC)
After some consideration - if perma-banning the accounts would make anyone (including myself) unable to edit them, I would like to have that done. Sorry for digging in it but someone is breathing life into something that should just rot in peace -- Jack's Inflamed Sense Of Rejection (talk) 20:41, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
Just confirm: if what you're asking us to do is permaban each of those accounts, could you make that request over on A/VB, that way we have a record of it in the place that'll be easiest to find it, should there ever be a need to do so? If you do that, we'll ban those accounts and lock the pages. Aichon 20:51, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
Of course - I will do so! :) -- Jack's Inflamed Sense Of Rejection (talk) 22:27, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
Hold on, you may be mistaken. The pages have been deleted. Getting them permabanned will not prevent people from being able to create a page or talk page for any of those accounts (which is currently the only thing that could happen for them at the moment). A ZOMBIE ANT 11:34, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
We can protect deleted/empty pages. While we may not do so by default for spambots and 3EV and the like who never created a page, if an existing user asks for it to be done as part of a self-imposed permaban, I see no issue in doing so. Aichon 13:36, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
It seems like someone already uses them more than I do, so figured it would be a way of preventing that. -- Jack's Inflamed Sense Of Rejection (talk) 20:41, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

The Dead 2.0

Since The Dead is moving back to their original page, it would seem that The Dead 2.0 is no longer needed. You could protect it or you could delete it, but frankly it's a bit of an eyesore without much content, so my vote is delete --Ɛňvϊoцᵴ (talk) 19:13, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

Envious claims to be a member for over 10 years yet uses this sock puppet account and is now outright attacking my right to exist as an account. Envious does NOT have the authority to request this and now it seems like its time for the sysops to review who envious REALLY is behind their fake account. Please advise how to get this procedure going. --The Dead 2.0 (talk) 19:32, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

You're a painfully obvious sockpuppet with no edit history who, if he were an actual member of The Dead, would know that the edits you keep reverting were personally and privately requested of me by a member of the group. --Dragonshardz (talk) 19:39, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
