The Deletion Request flag should be added to a page in the wiki that needs to be deleted due to inappropriate content. See the FamilySearch Wiki Policies page (items 28-31) and the Guiding Principles page for details about the Deletion policies and content guidelines.


  • Wiki users cannot delete pages, but they can add the request to delete by adding this Delete template to a page or a section of a page.
  • Add this Delete request template to a page by typing {{Delete}}
  • When the template is added to a page, the user should also add justification for deletion details when needed for clarification.
  • Sections of a page/article could have the Delete template, or the template could be added for the whole page. Only the section(s) tagged with the Delete template should be deleted.


  • Monitor the deletion requests by selecting the option to Watch this category page.
  • Currently the Sysops are required to monitor this category page.
  • Moderators may choose to help monitor the deletion requests by watching this category page.
  • Both Sysops and Moderators can delete entire pages or individual sections on a page that contain inappropriate content.
  • Sysops and Moderators can delete pages or sections without first adding the Delete template.
