Template:Proposed deletion notify/doc

From QuIRC
Jump to navigation Jump to search


This template is intended to be used on user talk pages to warn contributors to affected articles that their article has been proposed for deletion using Wikipedia:Proposed deletion. You're encouraged to modify the template as appropriate for unique circumstances.


  • Provide the name of the article as the first unnamed parameter. This is the only required parameter. It will be automatically wiki-linked.
  • concern=message: You can provide a reason for the proposed deletion. If one is not specified, the template will attempt to auto-detect the reason based on the PROD tag on the page. It will automatically be bolded and indented.
  • nowelcome=yes: Suppresses {{First article}} on empty pages (see below).
  • nothanks=yes: Suppresses "Thank you" message when {{First article}} is used.

New users

This template incorporates {{First article if new}}. As result, if you use {{Proposed deletion notify}} on a talk page that does not yet exist (i.e., new user), a {{First article}} message will be inserted before the Proposed deletion notify notice itself. You can provide a nowelcome=yes parameter to {{Proposed deletion notify}} to suppress this behavior. This template also accepts the nothanks=yes parameter, and passes it to {{First article if new}}.
