Being an active Wiki, a lot of content is added to the Katanagatari Wiki. While most of it is good content, occasionally undesirable content is added. When this happens, the content is removed from the wiki. This page is here to detail the procedure for deleting content from the Katanagatari Wiki and to list some of the many possible reasons why something might be deleted on the Katanagatari Wiki. Note that this is a guide to standard practice, not a rule.

Marking for DeletionEdit

To mark a page/image/etc for deletion, simply add the {{delete}} template to it. In the case of images/videos, simply add the template to the image's page (i.e. the page you arrive at when you click on the image on an article). You can also add {{delete|reason=Explain why this should be deleted}} if you wish to state a reason for marking the page/file for deletion. See Template:Delete for further details on using the template.

If a file/page is marked for deletion, the issue can of course be discussed. Do this either on the talk page of the article/file, or on the dedicated discussion page. If it is decided to keep the page/file, or if the reason why the page was listed for deletion is resolved, then the {{delete}} can be removed from it.

Actual Deletion of PagesEdit

Unless there is an obvious and serious breach of policy, a file (e.g. image, video) will typically be deleted between 1 and 3 days after being marked for deletion, unless the issue with it is resolved. Articles that have been marked for deletion will be given longer before being removed, typically about a week. Only Admins and Wikia appointed users with special rights have the ability to delete a page/image/etc and the final decision rests with them.
