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.

Crit 2 image has no discernible relevance to UD and might violate the host TOS --User:Sexualharrison21:12, 20 December 2011 (bst)

I would be perfectly happy to delete this but I know that Generaloberst is going to kick up a stink about it. Might as well take it too A/D.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 21:23, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
  1. Keep - Seriously? He puts up pictures of palistians dying and you choose to bite over a picture of hitler... there are like scores of images like these DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 04:49, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
    yes seriously. and i didn't even notice that picture. it should be removed also.--User:Sexualharrison07:19, 21 December 2011 (bst)
    It's even A/VB material IMO, but thats a separate issue to this just now DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 13:39, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
    so do something useful, instead of sucking up to someone that just wants to "gass" us dead.--User:Sexualharrison13:45, 22 December 2011 (bst)
    Should we mayhaps be taking this to deletions?--Shortround 10:57, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

    Came here from speedy because of a keep vote. --Shortround 15:30, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
  2. Delete - No real place on this wiki. It's also unused, so it could actually just be speedy deleted now.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 21:46, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
  3. Delete as unused - As the general. Also, the other general hasn't even complained, so he doesn't seem to even care.--Shortround 21:55, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Nazi Zombies

Nazi Zombies Crit 2. It's made by someone who clearly isn't the leader of the group, but in steat uses it to 'explain' about people using "Nazi Zombies" as their tag. It's the same as if I were to make a (group) page called "None" or "Independent" and explain about that. Also the page is primarily a POV view on Urban Dead compared to another video game. Generaloberst

Keep -- Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 14:42, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

What for? Generaloberst 17:52, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Both None and Independent already exist. -- Cheese 14:49, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Still it's just a page without any information about the group at all. So Speedy. Generaloberst 17:52, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

A single Keep votes guarantees it fails speedy deletions. Please use Deletions --Like Moss and The Dude..... 18:53, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

  1. Keep Viable group page. The only thing you can hope for is that the original creator requests A/SD, or arbies. -- Spiderzed 19:58, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
    Did you just seriously call the page viable (one edit)? Generaloberst 20:04, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
  2. Keep more dialouge--Michalesonbadge.pngTCAPD(╯°□°)╯ ┻━┻ 21:06, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
  3. Keep moar lulz--User:Sexualharrison21:07, 7 December 2011 (bst)
    Wow you are really a retard. First you want to vote it up for deletion. Then when I put it up you vote to keep it. You are like the leftist parties in the Netherlands. They also vote against every law when proposed by the right wing even if their party program stays they agree. Seems like 95% of the Netherlands is retarded. But then again 99,9% of the rest of the world is retarded too. Generaloberst 21:50, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
    If it's so horrible here, then do me and the rest of the country a favor and move out fucktard. I heared the South Pole is especially nice this time of year. -- Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 12:00, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
    Antarctica is actually pretty popular among nazis -- Spiderzed 19:24, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
  4. Keep - it should be fairly simple for you to show that you are the leader of the Nazi Zombies group talked about in this article, and then you can take control of the page. It doesn't need deleting for this to happen -- boxy 01:49, 8 December 2011 (BST)
  5. Keep - As a quarter dutch and part of 99.99% of the world i take offense to being called retarded. twice. annoying 08:21, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
  6. Disambig this Mofo Problem solved. --Like Moss and The Dude..... 17:39, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
    Then we can delete the one with the current content Tease.gif -- boxy 13:43, 9 December 2011 (BST)
    Made a new one Generaloberst 18:59, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
  7. As Ross, the only reasonable one - Because sanctity doesn't matter when he want's to use the same page. Especially when it's blatantly a speedy crit like this. We disambig and solve for both. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 22:11, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
  8. As Rosslessness.--Shortround 23:07, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Kept. Feel free to disambig it if that makes the most sense. ~Vsig.png 21:58, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
