Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page caters to votes for deletion of pages which do not meet the agreed upon criteria for page standards.

To Do

  • Create a criteria for what warrants deletion - Work in progress

Discussion on this topic will be held at JoCopedia talk:Deletion Policy

Templates and Procedures

Or, How to VFD for Beginners.

If you see a page that you feel falls short of the criteria for pages, you should:

  • Add {{VFD}} to the top of the page.
  • Write +VFD in the Edit Summary.
  • Come here and copy and paste the pretty table, rename the title to the page's title and cast your vote.
    • Try and be descriptive in the nomination vote (the first one) of why you feel the page should be deleted.

All interested users should:

  • Check here regularly to deliver their verdicts on the nominations' fate.

Once a page has been under vote for approximately 2 weeks, a moderator should:

  • Delete it and archive the vote.
  • Add {{VFDSurvivor}} to the page's talk page if it survived the vote.
  • Add it to WikiProject:Tidy Up in the appropriate category, if a page got a generally weak "keep" response or users mention it needs work.

Fine Print

Users who suggest a page be kept on the proviso that it gets tidied up, rewritten, spell-checked etc. are essentially volunteering to do so themselves. If a page survives a vote and you voted so, please do what you can to improve the page.

NO JOKE VFDs. Don't nom the Main Page, or anything silly like that.

No VFDs of user pages. If its yours and you don't want/need it anymore, QVFD is what you need.
VFD is for borderline pages which need a community consensus. Never nom another user's sub-pages (a user page is a sub page of a user's namespace i.e. User:Username/Sub Page. User-pages are sacred. If you spot a user-page which seems dodgy, contains porn or other objectionable content, please contact a moderator immediately or list on QVFD explaining the exceptional circumstances. If you don't like User:Percephene/My JoCo Fanfic Involving Pikachu too bad!

You may not remove the {{VFD}} template from a page until the vote has run its course.
Exception: A moderator can remove a VFD tag from a page if it is clearly not a VFD candidate i.e. the above two circumstances.
