Forum: The Situation Room > Deletion policy idea

Just had an idea, I've been looking at Articles for deletion, and quite a bit of items there are things that perhaps don't need much or any discussion, such as deleting unnecessary redirects, obvious vandalism, etc. I know this isn't Wikipedia, but it may be useful to have what's called speedy deletion, basically a speedy deletion tag is put on an article, and an admin looks at it, and deletes it if they feel it's appropriate. May streamline things, perhaps? Thoughts? Steve // talk // email // 06:58, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Well, at Wiki 24, we don't exactly have any policy about this type of thing. Generally, it's left up to the discretion of the admins. It's their choice whether to formally nominate a page if they feel someone may disapprove of the deletion. Otherwise, immediate deletion without any discussion is permitted. --Proudhug 07:06, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
I knew there wasn't really any policy for it, that was why I had the idea, and at times, users nominate pages for deletion too, I guess. I could make a template to show you how it would basically work, if you wouldn't mind. Steve // talk // email // 07:10, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
If someone puts "AFD" in the edit summary when they add the AFD template, that's pretty much equivalent to a speedy delete tag at this wiki. If this were a larger shop, a speedy delete template here might work like in Wikipedia. Since it's usually about a dozen or so contributors, though, I think it's handier for active sysops to just have 1 place to check for deletion nominations.

Yeah, I know how speedy deletion works at Wikipedia, Steve. I was just pointing out that one isn't necessary at Wiki 24. --Proudhug 14:26, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
