This is how this template looks in an article:


This template is intended to be placed on pages that should be deleted. Note however that in most cases, a redirect is probably better than a deletion.

If a page should be deleted, this template should be placed at the top of the page. It can be used in two ways:

{{delete|This page was created by mistake.}}
In this format, the template is passed an argument that will display a reason why this page is being recommended for deletion. This is the recommended way to use the template.
In this format, no reason has been provided for the deletion request. This isn't recommended. A reason should be provided even if it seems obvious -- it might not be obvious to someone else.

This template will place the article in Candidates for Deletion where they can be found by administrators.
