Proposed update[edit]

I think this page could really use some examples of which template to use when, like Speedy Delete. I have set up an example of what it would look like at User:ARTEST4ECHO/sandbox2. I am not suggesting Policy changes.

For example F1 would read:

1. Apparent copyright violation.

Content is apparently a [[<tvar|l1>Special:MyLanguage/Commons:Licensing</>|copyright violation]], with no clear evidence of Commons-compatible licensing being issued by the copyright holder. Repeated uploading of copyright material may lead to the uploading user's account being temporarily or permanently blocked.

Again, No Policy changes would be made, just adding which template to use when, in order to make it easier to decide which template to use. This is is how Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion does it, and I think it is very helpful. If a consensus in agreement is reached, User:ARTEST4ECHO/sandbox2 is ready to be copied over immediately (unless changes are suggested)--ARTEST4ECHO talk 13:33, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Good idea (except for the bullet and the third method), but not going to happen anytime soon, see the discussion on this page.    FDMS  4    19:50, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
I think the Bullet is necessary. That is how Wikipedia dose it also. I'm not sure what you mean by "the third method". However, I took out that way anyway.--ARTEST4ECHO talk

MUST or SHOULD[edit]

I've reverted a recent modification.

To tag a page for speedy deletion, you may use the template: {{speedydelete|<Reason>}}.
If a category or any other kind of page is empty you can use the template {{emptypage}} that's equal to {{speedydelete|It's empty}}.
To tag a page for speedy deletion, you may use {{speedydelete|<reason in prose>}} or the shortcut {{SD|<criterion number, see list>}}.
To tag a page for speedy deletion, you may use {{speedydelete|<reason in prose>}}, optionally linking reasons to the relevant speedy deletion policy sections.

Good riddance for {{emptypage}}. But for numerical reasons linking is not only OPTIONAL, arguably it's a MUST, or at least a SHOULD. I18n obviously happens at the policy page, as long as folks manage to link to the relevant English sections numerical reasons should work.

How they do this, with a new {{SD|…}} or something in their own script/language, is their own business, and not really relevant in the policy. Maybe somebody wants to expand {{db|…}} inspired by enwiki Template:delete because, fine, as long as text and link are clear. –Be..anyone (talk) 22:25, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
