Deleting pages is a sensitive subject in Wikis. Often, an editor will choose to integrate the contents of some page into another more relevant page and make the old one a redirect to the new one. But in some cases, outright deleting the page is justified.

Red exclamation mark icon This article briefly explains how deletion tags work, and what they look like. Before you start tagging articles for deletion however, you will want to read Outward Wiki:Deletion policy.

Nominating pages for deletion[]

Pages that users want to nominate for deletion use the {{Delete}} template (see below) at the top of the article. This template adds a deletion nomination banner and adds the article to the Candidates for deletion category.

This page is a candidate for deletion.
Reason: "No reason has been provided"

The accompanying Discussion page will use the {{subst:Delete/Talk}} template. This template pulls in {{Delete/Vote}} and adds a voting booth beneath it where people can actually place their votes and discuss. It also adds the discussion page to the Votes for deleting category.

Deletion vote[]
