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.

A rather weak attempt at creating an Urban Dead timeline. The formation of CoL, a few sieges and Amazing being banned are the only entries and those edits were from 5 1/2 years ago. It was only transcluded on Roleplaying and I've removed it there.

    Sadly, a long history of precedence basically nullifies any achievement that will manage (sounds much more smug than I was attempting but you get the picture). DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 12:19, 30 April 2012 (BST)

  5. Keep - We need a page we all can point and laugh at. -- Spiderzed 16:11, 28 April 2012 (BST)
  6. Keep – Because sysops shouldn't be the only ones who can point and laugh. ᚱᛁᚹᛖᚾ 07:06, 29 April 2012 (BST)
  7. Keep - Although if kept I'd strongly campaign for removing the large links to white power videos. Any one of us could do it without little resistance I'd imagine so I'll consider it if the page passes. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 03:16, 1 May 2012 (BST)
    figures--User:Sexualharrison04:01, 1 May 2012
    yeah figures that you'd get butthurt over this and then have a gripe at one of the only people being slightly neutral about it all (if retard nazis are one side of the argument and whimpering mimsies like yourself are on the other side) DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 10:06, 1 May 2012 (BST)
    you are not neutral, you have never have been. do i need to provided links? you are almost as big a hypocrite as fucking corny was. the difference being he at least knows he is a asshole. show some consistently for once.--User:Sexualharrison13:20, 1 May 2012
    Gimme links please faggot. For every link you can provide of me being a dickhead about the nazi issue I could provide three of every kneejerk fag like you being biased for the sole reason that the victim is a nazi and me trying to be level headed about it all. As a pre-emptive rebuttal, any time I was a shithead to corn or oberst or whatever other alt he had it was cause he was a cunt and a retard, not cause he was a nazi. As a sysop and in an administrational sense I was pretty on the level and even if I wasn't, the sheer fact that I had the community to compare to myself gave me the easy basis to say I was regardless. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 10:55, 2 May 2012 (BST)
    no fuck you. and when I have i ever stated other wise that I didn't hate nazis.? --User:Sexualharrison11:36, 2 May 2012
    I don't think I implied that was the case at all, and if I did I'm sorry, I didn't mean to. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 15:15, 2 May 2012 (BST)
  8. Delete - The nice thing about A/D voting is that you don't need anything more than a personal opinion that something should be deleted in order to vote that way. I also view the "keep something to laugh at" stance as the other side of "give them something to gloat about", which I don't like. Aichon 14:51, 2 May 2012 (BST)

Kept with an even-stevens of 4 votes each.--Shortround }.{ My Contributions 00:34, 11 May 2012 (BST)
