Convert a deletion request to speedy[edit]


Is there a good practice to convert a deletion request into a speedy deletion request? If the file targeted by a deletion request finally match a speedy criterion, how to turn the request to a speedy one? For example, like someone ask for deletion because copyvio is suspected, how to turn it into a speedy deletion request if I bring the copyvio evidence?

There is no reason to do that. Just add your evidence to the deletion request and it will be deleted in time. Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 10:22, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
Lacrymocéphale It happens regularly that files have multiple tags, technically nothing prevent to tag for speedy deletion a file that is already nominated for deletion, or that is already tagged with "no permission" or "no source". And it happens also regularly that an image nominated for deletion is speedy deleted (with a tag or not) for a reason unrelated to that of the request, and without this nomination being even closed by the deleting administrator, although personally I close the DR when I do it. In summary, and IMO, there is no conversion possible, but you can either add your evidence in the DR, as said by Sebari, or tag it for speedy deletion as if it was not nominated for regular deletion.

Thank you for your replies. I'll continue as I actually do with double tagging and/or DR update. --Lacrymocéphale (talk) 13:30, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
@Lacrymocéphale: That's what I do, tag the file as speedy and document that fact and my reason in the DR.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 16:29, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
