Policies need to modify[edit]

===Proposed deletion===
An editor who believes a page obviously and uncontroversially doesn't belong in an encyclopedia can propose its deletion. These pages can be deleted by any adminstrator if, after five days, nobody objects to the proposed deletion. Once there is an objection or a deletion discussion, a page may not be proposed for deletion again. This process only applies to pages in the Article, User, and User Talk namespaces.

  • Where to find them: A list of all pages flagged for proposed deletion can be found in Category:Proposed deletion
  • How to do this: Edit the page to add the following text to the top: {{subst:prod|reason}}, writing your reasoning in the "reason" field.
  • If you disagree: Any editor who disagrees with a proposed deletion can simply remove the tag. Even after the page is deleted, any editor can have the page restored by any administrator simply by asking. In both cases the editor is encouraged to fix the perceived problem with the page.
  • Renominations: Once the proposed deletion of a page has been objected to by anyone, it may not be proposed for deletion again. If an editor still feels the page ought to be deleted, a deletion discussion should be used, as indicated below.

==Proposed deletions==

NOTE: This page is a template designed for inclusion in w:Wikipedia:Deletion review. Keep it very short and don't remove the header!
This text (=only first para) is also copied at w:Wikipedia:Proposed deletion#Contesting after deletion. Please keep concurrent.

Articles deleted under this procedure (using the {{prod}} tag) may be undeleted, without further discussion, on a reasonable request. Any administrator can be asked to do this (or perform this action themselves), or a request may be made at Deletion Review, but such undeleted articles are able to be speedily deleted or nominated for deletion under the usual rules, should they meet those more stringent criteria. Administrators restoring deleted articles should place {{oldprod}} on the talk page of the article.

Please list requests for undeletion of articles deleted by the proposed deletion process below. Admins restoring deleted articles should also restore the history of the talk page, if present, and place {{Oldprod}} at the top. They may wish to notify the original PROD nominator so that they can decide whether to list the article at WQ:VFD; alternatively they may decide to nominate the article themselves. {{ProdContested}} (shortcut {{PC}}) is available for notifying the original nominator.

Please add your request to the bottom of the list using the format:
*[[Pagename]] - ~~~~

Admins:  When the list is empty, please replace the placeholder * ''none currently listed''  
  • none currently listed
