Template:Delete is an admonition that indicates a page should be deleted. This template makes these pages easier for administrators to find and work through, especially if a reason is provided.

Page deletions should usually be reserved for mistakes, as a deleted page may break links. For pages that have been moved, use a redirect. For pages with obsolete content, try merging the content into other articles and then providing a redirect to an appropriate location.

To use, insert {{delete}} which will display a default message. To include a reason for the request, insert {{delete|This page really needs to be deleted.}}.
