YPPedia:Deletion

From YPPedia

This article is about deleting pages on the YPPedia. For the article on what happens when pirates are deleted, see Deleting pirates.

Any user can delete content by editing a page. The content will still be available in the page history. Administrators can delete articles so they are no longer viewable by non-admins. Before you delete anything, please note that it is often a mistake to delete content.

Requesting deletion of a page

There are three ways to propose a page for deletion:

  1. If the page is a candidate for speedy deletion (CSD), add {{delete}}.
  2. If the page is not a CSD and the reason for deleting it is short, add {{proposed deletion because|reason}} (replacing "reason" with the reason it should be deleted.
  3. If the page is not a CSD and needs a longer explanation for the proposed deletion, add {{proposed deletion}} to the page and explain the reason on the talk page.

For non-speedy candidates, the pages should be kept for around a week before being deleted (assuming there is agreement that they should be deleted).

Please replace potential copyright violations with {{copyvio}}.
