This template is used to mark a page for deletion if it is a violation of the wiki rules or per author/user request, explaining the reasons of why it needs to be deleted. Any page using this template are added to Category:Pending deletion.

When marking non-redirect pages for deletion, the content should not be blanked (simply put the delete template above all the content). The only exceptions to this are if the page is a blatant attack page, a copyright violation, contains personal/sensitive information, or something along those lines.

When marking a redirect for deletion, the delete template should always go below the redirect, as this will make the redirect function for normal readers but will still add it to the pending deletion category.
