Template talk:Delete

From Wikiversity

Revert warring over the template was resolved by a custodian protecting it into a version that did not reflect the change that a user was trying to make, and it appears that the protected version is acceptable to all involved, for now. The collapsed discussion was about that and about the editing process. --Abd (talk) 22:39, 28 March 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Proposed change to template[edit]

While a user is [was] edit warring to change the template to make it show and mean what it never showed and meant, I have also proposed a change to clarify the template language, so that the misunderstanding he may be relying on -- which is not how speedy deletion works anywhere -- isn't possible. The proposed language is this version.

When a steward tags a page with a deletion template, this is what they intend. They expect that any local user may remove the template, and then a deletion discussion will be started by anyone still thinking the page should be deleted.

Please comment on this here. --Abd (talk) 13:28, 20 March 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
