This template puts a bold orange warning at the top of the page and adds it to Category:Articles flagged for speedy deletion. It should be added as the very first line on pages that are obvious candidates for deletion (e.g. vandalism, test pages, etc.) and whose deletion would be uncontentious. For all other cases use {{delete|reason}}.

Warning icon orange.png This template should not be used on pages that are not obvious candidates for deletion or whose deletion would be contentious. Use {{delete}} for that.


The parameter taken by the template is the reason the article has been flagged for deletion. If no reason is given, the default reason is "see the talk page for details". Giving a reason is encouraged, but not essential if an administrator could clearly see that this page is an obvious candidate for deletion.

Information icon.png When filling out the reason parameter, you should sign it so people know who flagged the page for deletion. To do this, simply end the reason with - ~~~~.

So, for example, the following code:

{{speedy-delete|this article was created by a spambot. - ~~~~}}

produces this:

Warning icon orange.png This page has been flagged for speedy deletion. The given reason is: this article was created by a spambot. - Squatting Monk (talk) 21:34, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

If you disagree with its speedy deletion, please edit the page and change {{speedy-delete|reason}} to {{delete|reason}} and discuss your reasons on its associated talk page. If this page obviously does not meet the common criteria for speedy deletion, or you intend to fix it, please remove this notice. Do not remove this notice from articles that you have created yourself. Remember to check if anything links here and the page history before deleting.
