Main page

This page serves as a place to request and discuss deletions.


The following are the policies to the requests for deletion process.

  • A. General
  • 1. This is an optional process; administrators can delete anything they believe is unneeded.
  • 2. If there is any controversy over deleting a certain page, abstain from a deletion war, do not delete the page, and bring the page in question to a deletion discussion as outlined in this article.
  • 3. Anyone can nominate a page (article, template, category, image, video, etc.) they feel should be deleted.
  • 4. There cannot be more than 30 deletion requests open at a given time. If there are already 30 requests at one time, do not create more or the requests made over the limit will be marked as invalid.
  • B. Process
  • 1. Fill out a form to create a deletion discussion.
  • 2. Once the discussion is created, the nominator must explain why they feel the article should be deleted.
  • a. If no explanation is given after twenty-four (24) hours, it will be closed as invalid.
  • 3. A discussion will occur, centered on that particular page.
  • 4. Neutral votes do not count in the final tally for consensus (70%)
  • C. Closing discussions
  • 1. Only administrators can close deletion discussions.
  • 2. If a discussion closes and the result is deletion, the page can be redirected to another article if there is a useful redirect.
  • 3. Deletion discussions generally last seven (7) days.
  • 4. Exceptions
  • i. If a deletion discussion does not receive a consensus (70%) either way after one (1) month, the discussion can be closed as "no consensus" and the page is kept.
  • ii. If the page in question is a spam page, the deletion discussion may be closed immediately, and the page will be deleted.
  • iii. The creator of a deletion discussion may withdraw their discussion at their sole discretion.
  • D. Request Limits for Pages
    • 1. When a page has been voted to not be deleted three consecutive times within three months or six consecutive times (without a bounded time for the requests be submitted it), the page will be exempt from being requested to be deleted for six months.
    • 2. After the initial six month ban of requesting on a page, every request that results without a deletion will result in another six month exemption.
    • 3. A page can be exempt from any six month exemption from deletion requests if:
      • If any discussion of a page's deletion that is currently exempt is found to have 3 or more sockpuppets. The six month exemption will be lifted and an admin will create a new discussion as a redo.
      • If a proposal is passed that allows deletion in a category containing pages for the purposes of housekeeping, the page can be deleted without a discussion if the passed proposal is defined in conjunction with a valid reason.
    • 4. All pages currently exempt from deletion requests will be put in a sub-page to be displayed and updated on the ESB:Requests for deletion page. The starting date and ending date of their exemptions will also be listed.
