This is a policy page for Don't Starve Wiki.
Codex Umbra
It contains widely accepted standards that editors should normally follow. Any significant changes must require community consensus. You can make a discussion in forum.

Speedy deletion is intended to reduce the time spent on deletion discussions for pages or media with no practical chance of surviving discussion.

Non-admins can ask for an admin to delete such a page simply by adding a {{speedydelete}} tag, or leave a message on administrators' message wall.

A list of pages to be speedily deleted can be found at Category:Candidates for speedy deletion.

When you request for speedy deletion

When asking for deletion, check the page history first to see if you can revert to an older version instead of deleting the entire page.

You can consider turning problematic pages into relevant redirects as an alternative to deletion.

Examples of candidates for speedy deletion

  1. No meaningful content or history (e.g. random characters).
  2. Test pages (e.g., "Can I really create a page here?").
  3. Pure vandalism (see also dealing with vandalism).
  4. Very short pages with little or no context (e.g., "He is a funny man that has created Factory and the Hacienda. And, by the way, his wife is great.")
  5. Reposted content that was already deleted according to policy.
  6. Pages that have been moved to another Wikia because they were uploaded in the wrong place.
  7. Temporarily deleting a page in order to move a page.
  8. Broken redirects or ones caused by typos during a page move.
  9. Duplicate images.
  10. Talk pages of already deleted articles.
  11. User talk pages of non-logged in users where the message is no longer relevant. (This is to avoid confusing new users who happen to edit with that same IP address.)
  12. Empty categories.
  13. User and talk pages on request of the user, where there is no significant abuse, and no administrative need to retain the page.
