This page is considered an official policy on the Young Justice Wiki. It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that everyone should follow. Except for minor edits, please make use of the talk page to propose changes to this policy.

Policies

There are a few, limited, cases where pages may be deleted speedily. Non-admins can ask for an admin to delete such a page simply by adding a {{speedydelete}} tag.

A list of pages to be deleted can be found at Category:Candidates for speedy deletion.

When deleting, check the page history first to see if you can revert to an older version instead of deleting the entire page.

You can consider turning problematic pages into relevant redirects as an alternative to deletion.

Ideally, when an admin deletes a test page or other page with no useful content, it is a good idea to put a note on the author's talk page explaining things, and preserving the deleted content, pointing them to the sandbox in cases of tests.

Examples of candidates for speedy deletionEdit

  1. No meaningful content or history (e.g. random characters).
  2. Test pages (e.g., "Can I really create a page here?").
  3. Pure vandalism (see also dealing with vandalism).
  4. Very short pages with little or no context (e.g., "He is a funny man that has created Factory and the Hacienda. And, by the way, his wife is great.")
  5. Reposted content that was already deleted according to policy.
  6. Pages that have been moved to another Wikia because they were uploaded in the wrong place.
  7. Temporarily deleting a page in order to move a page.
  8. Broken redirects or ones caused by typos during a page move.
  9. Duplicate images.
  10. Talk pages of already deleted articles or are not used for discussing page issues.
  11. User message wall threads that are no longer relevent or administrative in nature.
  12. Empty categories.
  13. Comments and forum threads that conflict with above guidelines.
