|Commons deletion (policy)|
The criteria for speedy deletion specify the only cases in which administrators have broad consensus support to, at their discretion, bypass deletion discussions and immediately delete files or pages, which does not mean that administrators are compelled to delete it if there are circumstances that provide for a simple better solution. They cover only the cases specified in the rules below.
Administrators should take care not to speedy delete pages or media except in the most obvious cases. If a page has survived a prior deletion discussion, it should not be speedy deleted except for newly discovered copyright violations. Contributors sometimes create pages over several edits, so administrators should avoid deleting a page that appears incomplete too soon after its creation. There is strong consensus that the creators and major contributors of pages and files should be warned of a speedy deletion nomination; if you tagged any content for speedy deletion, be sure to notify its creator.
- 1. テスト投稿、間違いによる投稿、無意味な内容のページ、有効な内容を持たないページ
- 2. 未使用や不適切な内容、又は壊れたリダイレクト
- Page is an unused and implausible redirect, or a redirect that is dependent on deleted or non-existent content. Unused talkpage redirects that was created as a result of a page move, or cross-namespace redirects, may also be deleted under this criterion.
- 3. 荒らし、脅迫、攻撃を目的としたコンテンツ
- Content that is posted with the intention of causing damage, or with the intention of threatening, harassing, or attacking another person or user. Users that commit such acts are subjected to their accounts being temporarily or permanently blocked, depending on the severity of the content. Content posted with the intention of creating/spreading hoaxes may also be deleted under this criterion.
- 4. コミュニティの合意により削除されたことのあるコンテンツの再作成
- Page or file matches content that was previously deleted per community consensus. Repeated recreation of such content may lead to the user's account being blocked. The author or uploader may ask the deleting administrator to restore the file, or file an Undeletion Request.
- 5. 履歴の整理や改定歴の整頓のための一時的な削除
- Content temporarily deleted to remove specific revisions containing vandalism, threats/attacks, or personal information. Content may also be temporarily deleted to perform a history merge or split.
- 6. 議論の必要のないメンテナンス作業
- 7. 作者又は投稿者が削除を求めた場合
- 8. 削除されたか、又は存在しないコンテンツに依存するページ
- 9. 事務局行動(Office actions)
- Criterion reserved for office actions. The Wikimedia Foundation office reserves the right to speedily delete content temporarily or permanently in cases of exceptional circumstances. No administrator may delete content citing this criterion, unless they are officially part of the Wikimedia staff. Deletions of this type should not be reversed without permission from the Foundation.
- 1. Gallery without images or other media files
- Mainspace pages (galleries) that are empty or contain no useful content, such as pages that contain text but no images or other media.
- 2. Gallery created by mistake
- User intended to create a category, userpage, or other page, but a typo or misplaced character(s) in the prefix prevented the content from being the intended type. In particular, note that the prefix must be in English.
- 3. User intended to create encyclopedic content
- Page intended to be an encyclopedic article. Articles and biographies belong to the Wikipedia projects, and are out of Commons's project scope.
- 4. Promotional content or spam
- Mainspace content is of no apparent use or value, and largely contains spam, or is intended to promote a business, person, or other entity. Such content is out of the project scope.
- 1. Renamed or duplicate category
- Categories that are renamed, or those that duplicate an existing, may be redirected to the new category, or deleted. See Rename a category#Should the old category be deleted?
- 2. Improperly named category
- Improperly named categories, or categories that violate the basic naming conventions, may be speedily deleted. See Rename a category#Should the old category be deleted?
- 1. Improperly filled or routinely emptied deletion request or log
- This includes Deletion Requests (DRs) that are corrupted or incorrect and cannot be fixed. Or redundant DRs for pages that are eligible for speedy deletion; this requires either formally closing the DR in order to both close the DR and have the bot remove it from the log, or deleting the DR page and removing the daily log entry. Deletion logs are also routinely emptied as discussions are closed, when empty they may be deleted immediately. Note that this does not apply to DR archives, which are separate from the working logs.
- 1. Apparent copyright violation
- Content is apparently a copyright violation, with no good evidence of Commons-compatible licensing being issued by the copyright holder or status as a free work. Repeated uploading of non-free material may lead to the uploading user's account being temporarily or permanently blocked.
- 3. Derivative work of non-free content
- Derivative works based on non-free content (such as screenshots of non-free content). This does not include freedom of panorama cases.
- 4. Failed license review
- License review concluded that the recently uploaded content is based on a non-free license, disallowing commercial use and/or derivative works. Files tagged by OTRS Reviewers as having insufficient permission, or files tagged with OTRS pending for over 30 days, may also be speedily deleted under this criterion.
- 5. Missing essential information
- The file is missing essential information, such as a license, permission, or source. Such content may be given a grace period of seven days (since tagging) before being deleted.
- 6. License laundering
- Content uploaded via license laundering techniques are copyright violations. Users uploading in such techniques may be subjected to their account being temporarily or permanently blocked.
- 7. File is empty
- 8. Exact or scaled-down duplicate
- 既存ファイルと全く同じか縮小複写したファイル。 The generally accepted rule is to delete the newer duplicate, but that may not always be the case, such as when comparing between a user uploaded file, and a bot uploaded file. Note that for very large files, it may be acceptable to have a scaled-down duplicate for accessibility reasons.
- 9. Embedded data
- The file contains additional embedded data in the form of a password protected archive.
- 1. Duplicate template
- A recently created template that duplicates an existing older template.
- 2. Unused template
- Unused templates (except maintenance/project templates that are substituted), are subjected to speedy deletion.
- 1. User requested deletion in own user space
- User requested deletion of their own user page or user-subpage. User pages that are blanked by the user may also be deleted under this criterion.
- 2. User page of a non-existent user
- User space of non-existent user. Redirects may be created (and protected) for those user names of which the account was renamed.
- 3. Inappropriate use of user pages
- Inappropriate use of user pages. These include user pages that contain purely advertising or promotional material, or those that are created with the intention of harassment or attack. Those that contain gibberish or unrecognisable content may also be deleted under this criterion.
