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.

Orphaned images

File:ADAZS.jpg, File:P1010002.JPG, File:AZSHighlander.jpg

These all fall under Crit 7. ADAZS.jpg has had one administrative category edit by DDR and formerly had modifications by Hawke2019, but has been reverted to the original by him, so it's still Crit 7. Some of them fall under the Category: Anti-Zombie Squad, but as no one will dispute that I was their leader, I get to do whateversies with it. --Penguinpyro 18:48, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

  4. Keep - File:P1010002.JPG, at least. You took it off the page it was being used on Grr! Argh! *shaking fist* What about the rest... where were they being used before you decided you wanted to "delete them all"? -- boxy 11:31, 4 September 2014 (BST)
    ADAZS was being used on the AZS recruitment ad. I have no idea where the AZShighlander image was from, or if I ever even used it. But, seeing as how the group- my group, I should add- has been dead for over 3 years at this point and seeing as I am 100% responsible for everything to do with all three images in the first place... I believe I am entirely within my wikirights to be wikialtering the wikideal. Wikipray I don't wikialter it any wikifurther. --RWSig1.png RWSig2.pngFoD PK Praise Rando!06:36, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
  5. Speedy Delete I'm not even sure why this is being voted on. They're either C7 or orphans which means scheduled. The pages they were used on aren't of any historical value, just some unimplemented group project ~Vsig.png 04:16, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Userpage made by someone else without Zombra's permission.

  1. Delete A ZOMBIE ANT 10:47, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
    Alex has sought and acquired zombra and zombra doesn't seem to mind [2] so I'm indifferent now. A ZOMBIE ANT 12:27, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
  2. Delete - User pages belong solely to the user. Zombra is on the wiki, so Zombra can make one if they want. Aichon 12:24, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
    Keep - Zombra's okay with it, apparently. Aichon 00:52, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
  3. Delete -- Spiderzed 15:40, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
    Re - Why delete? What much of a difference will it make? --- Alex Yamata Pres/CEO HYPER-UMBRELLA P! 18:10, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
  4. Keep - seeing as Zombra seems to be fine with it. But please don't go creating user pages for others, unless you know they're fine with it, and you are sure that it is their account. It really is best not to do this for anyone, unless there is some reason they can't do it themselves -- boxy 21:12, 23 July 2014 (BST)

Apparently kept --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 23:49, 29 August 2014 (UTC)


I don't feel like keeping this page within my userspace anymore. D: --Si vis pacem, para bellum. (stalk · KT · FoD · UT) 16:25, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
