Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]
This template is used to notify users about pages that have been speedily deleted. Specifically, it is used for pages that have been deleted under section G13 of the criteria for speedy deletion, "abandoned drafts and articles for creation submissions". This template is usually used in lieu of tagging with {{db-draft}}; for other post-deletion speedy deletion notification templates see the table to the right.

Usage

This template should be substituted on to the user talk page of the author of the page that has been speedily deleted.

If this template is used on a page that did not previously exist (that is, if the user receiving the warning is new user), the template automatically includes a {{first article}} welcome message. This welcome can be turned off with the |nowelcome= parameter as described below.

Basic usage

{{subst:db-draft-deleted|PageName}}

Where PageName is the name of the page that has been speedily deleted.

Parameters

  • nowelcome:- If this parameter exists, then the {{first article}} welcome message is not included, even if the page the notice is being placed on did not previously exist.
  • header:- by default, the template adds a level two section header of "Speedy deletion of PageName". To suppress the header, use |header=no.
  • header-text:- a custom value for the header text.
  • demo:- if you are demonstrating the template's functionality, transclude the template rather than substitute it, and use |demo=yes. This will prevent the template from being automatically substituted by a bot.
  • namespace:- this is the namespace of the page that has been speedily deleted. For example, if the page is in the "Wikipedia" namespace then the value would be Wikipedia. It is not necessary to specify this parameter if the namespace is already included in the page name. If the page is in the main article namespace then this parameter should be omitted.

Examples

No welcome message

{{subst:db-draft-deleted|PageName|nowelcome=yes}}

No header

{{subst:db-draft-deleted|PageName|header=no}}

Using a custom header

{{subst:db-draft-deleted|PageName|header-text=Custom header text}}
