By the way, is it really necessary to keep a complete list of completed deletions? If it is, can we at least Archive what's been done so far on a subpage as this page is getting ridiculously long now - Revan 02:07, 15 January 2007 (CET)

I don't think it is neccesary... feel free to delete stuff from the page, or I will tomorrow (or later today, technically). It'll remain in the history by way of archive. --The1exile 03:12, 15 January 2007 (CET)
The Fairytales Family sub-paged alot of it's creations, the duplicates could be deleted. -Chénier 03:32, 24 October 2007 (CEST)

Category / Template

Shouldn't we turn this into a template that can be added to pages that want to be deleted? Like Template:Cleanup, for example? --Tom 18:45, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

I discussed that with Bishamon Family a month or so ago. He decided it wasn't worthwhile. Personally, I think it's a great idea. Very easy for someone to add {{Delete|I typo'd the name}} to a page rather than have to go find some weird page somewhere, edit it, then add a link an explanation there. Also, the editor would never have to edit a page when deleting. You just delete the page and it's automatically gone from the category. --Indirik 18:56, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
I discussed it with Alex Davies and he didn't think it was a great idea. I don't care either way as long as its simple to use. I think we should get a short list of useful templates on the wiki as well. Stuff like hypothetical, OOC only, delete(if we do it) etc. --Vita Family 19:00, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
There is already one for templates that make editing easier: Category:Utility Templates. We could add one for "Meta Templates" or something. The key is to find a way to make them easy and useful. The category should be linked from several places where people might look, including the BattleMaster Wiki:Contents page. --Indirik 19:11, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
I'd like to re-start the discussion on this, as I agree with Tom. I'm a wikipedia contributor as well as a contributor on several Wikia sites, and they use a system of template+category. Makes management of deletion pages a lot easier, it's less work for people to suggest articles, and it also lets people know that a page is being considered for deletion.
For now I've just added the Deletion template and its associated category, which can be used in addition to this page. But I'd like to suggest we replace the current system with the template+category system. Cheers, Corwyn 23:01, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
I'm perfectly willing to rebegin discussion(I don't care what system we use), but please please please do not go editing pages and creating the temples until a decision is reached. --Ethan Lee Vita (Talk), Editor and Community Manager 20:23, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

For the record, the template that was created is: Template:Delete. It adds pages to Category:Deletion. --Indirik (talk), Editor (talk) 21:31, 12 June 2012 (CEST)
