FANDOM


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

Step by step

If you find a page that you feel should be deleted and do not have the rights to do so, contact your local administrators or content moderators. Otherwise, follow the steps below.

Deleting a page

  • To delete a page, hover over the arrow next to the "Edit" button at the top of the page, then click "Delete".

  • On the next page, you will see a box labeled "Delete".

  • The Reason drop-down has pre-written reasons for deleting the page. An additional reason can be supplied via the Other/additional reason" box.
  • Following the page is also possible when deleting a page. If the page is restored or recreated, a notification will be sent to your email address.
  • Click the "Delete page" button.
  • After the page is deleted, you will be redirected to the main page of the wiki where a banner will appear at the top confirming the page's deletion.
  • Special:Log/delete allows a review of all deletions on a wiki.
  • When viewing a previously deleted page, the log of the deletion is shown.

Any deleted page can be restored by an administrator or content moderator.

Deleting a wiki

Wikis can only be closed by FANDOM Staff. To request a wiki's closure, please send a message to Special:Contact. However, closing wikis is rare as they are community projects, so please provide as much information as possible in your request to explain why.
