- ... "The procedure in Template:Weg, however, calls for a decision to be made by a custodian, violating general traditions that deletion decisions are made by the community. (But) ... we know full well about triple process, i.e.,
- Speedy deletion
- Proposed deletion
- Deletion discussion.
- ...how the Dutch work, and that the only workable way of community in action is by the procedure you know. ... The Dutch community has a long term tradition and the community itself choose this procedure on all Dutch wiki's. Why? Because it works. For an outsider like you, it seems that an admin makes the decision, but then you don't see the process underneath it.
- What ... created was like Proposed deletion, but with a requirement for a custodian decision. What is normally done with proposed deletion is that any user may remove the template. It is really a slow form of Speedy deletion, where the page might have a little less obviousness as to deletion reason.
- ... was not aware that discussed deletion was also a norm on Beta. It's done through a custodian request page. The concept that a custodian must decide has been proposed here and rejected." (here)

- Template:Weg requires to have guidelines to be followed. Guidelines written by the community. Also it requires the user who nominates a page for deletion, to give a explanation with substantial arguments why it should be deleted. Then others have the opportunity to react on that, also with substantial arguments. Then a custodian has a look on the page, the guidelines and the given arguments of all reactions and draws a conclusion. The situation is not that a custodian can do whatever he wants, but must respect the guidelines and given arguments of the community. Romaine (talk) 14:14, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
