Documentation for Template:rfd. [edit]
This page contains usage information, categories, interwiki links and other content describing the template.

Usage edit

Despite the appearance, this template is not nominated for deletion.

To use this template,

  1. Add {{rfd|en|short reason here}} ("en" for English, replace with the appropriate language code) to the page source as appropriate.
  2. Start the discussion on to Wiktionary:Requests for deletion/English, Wiktionary:Requests for deletion/Non-English, or Wiktionary:Requests for deletion/Others as appropriate by clicking the (+) link.

The title of the deletion discussion should be left as the wikified, blue linked page name, which is automatically provided for you. The output is as follows:

A user has added this template documentation page to requests for deletion(+).
Please see that page for discussion and justifications beyond the initial comment of: “short reason here”. You may continue to edit this template documentation page while the discussion proceeds, but please mention significant edits at the RFD discussion and ensure that the intention of votes already cast is not left unclear. Do not remove the {{rfd}} until the debate has finished.
