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

In a restricted set of circumstances, system operators may delete pages without full consultation of the wiki community. This is usually restricted to pages that do not seem to have any legitimate information or function within the wiki, or for pages that have been created by mistake and are requested to be deleted by the author. In these circumstances, a Speedy Deletion may take place, allowing system operators to quickly remove these pages from the wiki.

Guidelines for Speedy 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.
  • 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.

Further, you should place {{speedydelete}} at the top of the page you are nominating for speedy 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 speedy deletion request has been entered, the request shall remain on this page, where it will be reviewed by a member of the moderation team, and action taken accordingly. Once action has been taken, the request will be moved into the Archive, and the system operator shall add a signed datestamp to the archived request.

A Speedy Deletion may be circumvented by a single vote of Keep under the request. If this occurs, the system operator shall move the Speedy Deletion request to the Deletion Request Queue, where the normal rules for Deletion of the page shall apply. Further, a user may choose to move a request from the Speedy Deletion queue to the Deletion Request Queue should they feel that the deletion may attract controversy within the wiki community, but do not wish to cast a Keep vote for the request. Should either of these circumstances occur, the deletion candidate should remain in the Deletion Request Queue until the alloted two weeks is up.

In the event of a sysop requesting Speedy Deletion, all the previous points will apply, excepting that a system operator other than the requester shall review and take action on the request.

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.

User:Wildcard5

Crit 7 / 8. Page blanked by the user with the rationale "I feel I have out grown this page." ~~ Chief Seagull ~~ talk 07:37, 2 October 2011 (BST)

Meh. I don't see the point in deleting a user's main userpage unless specifically asked by the user. If he's dead he's dead (to us, that is. I'm sure his mammy still loves him). When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 05:57, 3 October 2011 (BST)
Agreed. ~Vsig.png 06:14, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Crit 10, Unused Template. Seems useless to me to be honest, semi protection isn't a big thing and it could easily be done via mediawiki.--Karekmaps 2.0?! 12:00, 29 September 2011 (BST)

Aww can't we discuss this first? -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 12:47, 29 September 2011 (BST)

Discuss away. Like Karek, I think it can be a system message thing. I think it already is. ~Vsig.png 16:21, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
The current system message reads: Note: This page has been locked so that only registered users can edit it. The latest log entry is provided below for reference:. Good enough? ~Vsig.png 05:52, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
No discussion and it's the beginning of the new month so I'm serving it. Deleted. ~Vsig.png 06:14, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

User:Akule/Defeated Groups/Zergs/Bloody Green Boyz

A dupe of Bloody Green Boyz. This was missed when Bloody Green Boyz was deleted, making it a crit 6. -- Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 13:13, 2 October 2011 (BST)

No. It wasn't missed. Akule can have that in his userspace if he wants. ~Vsig.png 17:25, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Really? Kinda defeats the purpose of deletions if every delete can be bypassed by userspace. -- Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 19:15, 2 October 2011 (BST)
Kinda defeats the purpose of userspaces if others can dictate how they're used. When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 19:20, 2 October 2011 (BST)
Crit 6 was intended to keep people from simply recreating the same page after it has been deleted. If someone had recreated Bloody Green Boyz proper after deletion then yeah. Putting it in userspace for archival purposes just simply isn't the same. ~Vsig.png 21:22, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
It's not supposed to be a group page. Protect it then, and it will become the archive it is supposed to be. --Akule Maker of fine, hand-crafted UDWiki sass since 2006 -- Akule School's back in session™ 05:48, 3 October 2011 (BST)

I believe this was part of an April Fools joke. I am not sure if it has any historical significance but can be put up for undeltion if necessary. ~Vsig.png 16:21, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Done. This was scrapped I believe after some unresolved problems. ~Vsig.png 16:21, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Template:Efail

Image:The Requiem.png

Sorry to create work folks. I tried to upload a new version of the picture. I made a few changes to it, include size and text font. The only thing that changed when I tried to upload the new version was the size. It seems as if the server tried to merge the two files, and took the size from the second, and text from the first, and went with that. I know it's not what you see when you click on it, but that's what comes up when you try to use the picture. Maybe I just did something wrong. -Poodle of DoomT*C 06:02, 23 September 2011 (BST)

As per crit. 3, asit is unused, as well as crit. 7 for being edited only by one person (which I do suppose most redirects would be). I'm also forming a group called The Requiem, and would appreciate having the namespace, with a clean slate. -EstacadoTalk 22:36, 22 September 2011 (BST)

We'll hold off for a bit. Just post here with eith a keep vote or a "go ahead" when you're ready. ~Vsig.png 02:29, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
The keep vote will be easier. That'll keep it around for two weeks (until it is deleted) and by then I should have completed anything I have to do with it. --Akule Maker of fine, hand-crafted UDWiki sass since 2006 -- Akule School's back in session™ 02:35, 12 September 2011 (BST)

    Hm well I may have jumped the shark in suggesting a keep vote. It's a scheduled deletion and I don't think we vote on those, even if a keep vote it logged. If there is a reason you need it kept (such as recording the hist) we can hold off a bit. Really, the page needs to be deleted if it isn't going to be recreated and I don't think recreation is you goal in keeping it around for a bit. We'll just give it a little bit and delete in a few day, mkay? ~Vsig.png 02:53, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

    Alrighty. ~Vsig.png 03:00, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
