Speedy deletion is intended to reduce the time spent on deletion discussions for pages or media with no practical chance of surviving discussion.
Administrators should take care not to speedy delete pages or media except in the most obvious cases. If a page has survived a prior deletion discussion, it should not be speedy deleted except for newly discovered copyright violations. Contributors sometimes create pages over several edits, so administrators should avoid deleting a page that appears incomplete too soon after its creation.
Anyone can request speedy deletion by adding one of the speedy deletion templates. Before nominating a page for speedy deletion, consider whether it could be improved, reduced to a stub, merged or redirected elsewhere, reverted to a better previous revision, or handled in some other way. Users nominating a page for speedy deletion should specify which criteria the page meets, and should consider notifying the page creator and any major contributors.
(The above wording I have taken from Wikipedia's policy. This is not a permanent document. It will become so once it is reviewed, adapted or otherwise changed by the admins in charge of this wikia. This is a working draft only. I, as a user, am not trying to set policy or imply that I am doing so. I am merely filling an obvious void until such time as the above policy is improved and expanded upon. -- DragonMage 21:39, January 28, 2010 (UTC)
