Marked For Deletion

To mark a page/image/etc for deletion, simply add the {{delete}} template to it. In the case of images/videos, simply add the template to the image's page (i.e. the page you arrive at when you click on the image on an article). See Template:Delete for further details on using the template.

If a file/page is marked for deletion, the issue can of course be discussed. Do this either on the talk page of the article/file. If it is decided to keep the page/file, or if the reason why the page was listed for deletion is resolved, then the {{delete}} can be removed from it.

Unless there is an obvious and serious breach of policy, a file (e.g. image, video) will typically be deleted between 1 and 3 days after being marked for deletion, unless the issue with it is resolved. Articles that have been marked for deletion will be given longer before being removed, typically about a week. Only administrators and Wikia appointed users with special rights have the ability to delete a page/image/etc and the final decision rests with them.
