Category:Legacy Delete Me
Please avoid adding new articles to it.
This tag marks pages that are about to be deleted. This doesn't invoke any sort of automatism; it merely serves as a handy search target for the admins.
Note that if a page does not contain a Category:Legacy Delete Me tag that doesn't mean it cannot be deleted. Admins don't just randomly delete pages, of course, but if a page seems to have been created solely for testing purposes (which we ask users not to do), maliciously or by accident, we occasionally may delete it without further ado.
There's a permanent log of all changes ever done on the Wiki, so no valuable content can ever get completely lost (although it can be quite a hassle to retrieve it once a page has been fully deleted).
If you think a page should be deleted, add a link to Category:Legacy Delete Me along with a short explanation like this:
- Category:Legacy Delete Me because this page is redundant with The Weather in London.
Category:Legacy Delete Me – page obsoleted by Category:Legacy Wanted Pages.
Also put something in the Summary field when you add a Category:Legacy Delete Me tag to attract the admins' attention – otherwise the deletion request may remain unanswered until an admin happens to stumble over it by accident.
Deletion requests are listed below.
