Wikia is a free-to-use site that makes money from advertising. We have a modified experience for viewers using ad blockers

Wikia is not accessible if you’ve made further modifications. Remove the custom ad blocker rule(s) and the page will load as expected.

Any user can remove content from a page, but only administrators and content moderators can delete pages completely. This is often done in cases of spam and vandalism but may also be used to remove unwanted pages.

Step by step Edit

If you find a page that you feel should be deleted, contact your local administrators. If you're an administrator or content moderator, follow the steps below.

Deleting a page Edit

  • When you are ready to delete a page, click the arrow on the "Edit" button next to the page title and then click "Delete".
Delete page
  • On the next page, you will see a box labeled "Delete".
DeletionScreen
  • The Delete box allows you to select a pre-written reason from the "Reason" drop-down menu. You can also supply one you wrote yourself in "Other/additional reason".
  • You also have the option to follow the page. This will notify you if the page is restored.
  • Click the "Delete" button.
  • You will be redirected to the main page of the wiki, where a green banner will appear at the top of the page confirming the page's deletion.
  • You can review all deletions in the deletion log, found at Special:Log/delete.
  • If someone visits a deleted page they will have the option to restore that page.

Restoring a page Edit

Any deleted page can also be restored by an admin later.

  • To restore a deleted page, go to Special:Undelete.
  • Enter the deleted page title in the "Show pages starting with" box and click "Search".
  • If you see a list of similarly named pages, find the one you want to restore and click on it.
Restore delete pages
  • In the "Restore revisions" box, take a read of the brief directions, then you can add a restoration reason in the "Reason" box.
RestorePageScreen
  • Click the "Restore" button.
  • The page will be restored just as it was when it was deleted, and will appear immediately.

Deleting a wiki Edit
