Deletion is the process of removing articles or files from the wiki. Users may request that a page be deleted by adding the {{delete|<reason>}} template. Pages requested for deletion in this manner are automatically added to Category:Candidates for deletion.

An admin will respond to the request to see if the page indeed requires deletion. Those with a useful version in the page history may simply be reverted instead of deleted outright. In general, pages which are deleted fall under one or more of the following parameters.
