Multilingual templatesEdit

Should such templates be multilingual? For example:

This page is a candidate for speedy deletion. If you disagree with its speedy deletion, please explain this on its talk page.
Esta página encontra-se vazia por ter sido criada com lixo, que apagámos. Se sabe alguma coisa sobre o assunto, por favor, crie um esboço em substituição desta nota.
Diese Seite wurde nach den Regeln des Schnelllöschverfahrens zum sofortigen Löschen vorgeschlagen. Einsprüche bitte auf die Diskussionsseite schreiben.
このページは即時削除の対象となっており、間もなく削除される予定です。もしこのページの削除に同意できなければ、記事を適切な内容に改めた上で 即時削除 を取り除いてください。

Or would this end up with too many languages showing on the same page? Should the language of the template match the language in the page being deleted? For example, should someone who speaks Portuguese check pages with {{lixo}} on them, and people who speak English only check ones with {{delete}} on them? This makes some sense since people not speaking Portuguese would not know whether the page really was patent nonsense. Angela 16:17, 10 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Category:Other speedy deletionsEdit

This seems like an unnecessary duplicate to me. Why not just put them in CAT:CSD???? How is that confusing? Instead we add another layer. Then CAT:CSD is empty for no reason. pfctdayelise (translate?) 07:34, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Can't translate this SpeedyDelete Template?Edit

Dear Administrators,
(If this offer is NOT a right thing, never mind.)

Is it OK to translate this SpeedyDelete Template into our own native language? At this moment, currently ONLY English page is available for this template, but it would NOT be so effective for us.

The Master Template would be fine with ONLY English page and controled under English language. Refering to "copyright tags" (Master:{{PD-self}} and Translated:{{PD-self/ja}}), it would be much better if this template could be also provided in multi-languages.

What do you think?

If I can get your permission, I will start to prepare.

--SantaClaus 15:01, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

I think it is a good idea, please do go ahead with preparations. I suggest that the template in another language should always contain the current English text as well, so that most admins will recognize it. But I can make no promise, maybe it turns out that your suggestion isn't possible for some reason. / Fred Chess 16:33, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, Fred Chess. OK, then I will start the preparation. YES, I do understand. If some reasons come up and if it might turn out to be taken back, it would be OK for me. --SantaClaus 08:22, 23 February 2007 (UTC)


please change {{SpeedyDelete|specify a reason}} to {{Speedydelete|specify a reason}} with a small d. Template:SpeedyDelete don't exist. thx. --BLueFiSH 00:00, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Badname -> Bad nameEdit

{{Editprotected}} {{Badname}} is now called {{Bad name}}. Please change the text accordingly. — Xavier, 01:21, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

  Done MECUtalk 15:55, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Add reason to top red section of box?Edit


I think it would be better if the reason for the speedy deletion (if specified as a custom reason) comes up in the top red section of the box like all the other deletion messages. Vipersnake151 23:00, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Yea, but the text inside the template comes from Template:Speedy delete text. / Fred J (talk) 21:47, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
  Done Just had to pass the reason as a variable to the text template like other templates do. MECUtalk 16:40, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

This template not workEdit

this code:

'''Reason for deletion request:'''

<span class="speedy_reason">{{{1}}}</span>

Not work, this template not show the Reason for deletion request, and can problems. Shooke 15:24, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

This is now obsolete as I changed how it is done per the above request. MECUtalk 16:41, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Reason is brokenEdit

{{editprotected}} No matter what you do for a deletion it just shows The given reason is: ' . Bidgee (talk) 14:50, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

  Not done WORKSFORME --Mormegil (talk) 13:52, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

text change in templateEdit

Currently, the template displays this:

{{copyvio|reason or source}} for obvious copyright violations

That's incorrect, as the actual text that needs to be used is {{copyvio|1=reason or source}}

Please correct this. Cheers! Esrever (klaT) 21:34, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

It's already correct because the first parameter ({{{1}}}) does not require 1= at the front of it when you use it. But only when there is no equal sign in the URL. It's a good idea to fix it to make it compatible with the URL as well --Harley Hartwell (talk) 12:58, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Reason field is brrokenEdit


Someone please revert this edit [1]. It's disrupting the reason field in this template. Nat (talk) 03:22, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

The problem seems to come from the removal of '''The given reason is:''' ''{{{reason|{{{1|No reason given.}}}}}}'' on this edit of Template:Speedydelete/en. Teofilo (talk) 10:36, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
I have edited Template:Speedydelete/en and it seems to be OK now. I remove {{Editprotected}}. Teofilo (talk) 10:46, 24 July 2009 (UTC)


On the 4th listitem of the speedy deletion template, it says "In the case of fair use images, notify the uploder with:" I think it should be uploader. -- Soap (talk) 05:03, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

  Done Fixed in Template:Speedydelete/en. --Mormegil (talk) 18:18, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Layout i18nEdit

I've added a usage-label parameter to allow Click here to show further instructions to be translated. As there are almost no translations yet, I've made it non-required for a while (with English fallback). Wizardist (talk) 09:48, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Click hereEdit

I want "Click here to show further instructions" in Malayalam :). {{LangSwitch}} in layout or a new parameter in translation templates, which is better?--Praveen:talk 16:39, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

There already is a parameter for that, usage-label. --Mormegil (talk) 20:26, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

:) added--Praveen:talk 01:35, 29 December 2010 (UTC)


The administrator is asked to check the history and there is also a link to the last change. But often the last change is adding the template, the possible vandalism leading to the addition of the template is the change before that, isn't it? --LPfi (talk) 11:30, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Fix linkEdit

{{Editprotected}} The link on the template titled "criteria for speedy deletion" should point to Commons:Criteria for speedy deletion or then the title should be changed to match the current link. Palosirkka (talk) 11:17, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Subpages are semiprotected, not fullprotected. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:27, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

By and with in final sentence of template: grammar errorEdit

{{Edit request}} The word "by" in the final sentence, "...replace this tag by a regular deletion request", should be replaced with a "with" (i.e., "...with a regular deletion request"). That's all. Thanks! KDS4444 (talk) 13:14, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

  Done (page isn't protected). Sorry!    FDMS  4    17:31, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Edit requestEdit

{{Edit request}}-Editprotected Please remove the warning message "Note: Don't delete this template, only pages and files that embed it!" It is no more required since this template do not auto categorize itself now--Pierpao.lo (listening) 10:47, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

+1 The whole shebang should be moved to the /doc page. -- User: Perhelion 20:40, 7 March 2017 (UTC)
I means to delete it. It is not necessary. We do not have it neither in the template {{SD}} nor in the {{Copyvio}}--Pierpao.lo (listening) 21:02, 7 March 2017 (UTC)
  Done -- User: Perhelion 22:21, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
