Raccourci :
La politique de suppression de Meta-Wiki codifie les instances où les administrateurs peuvent supprimer des pages. Bien que n'importe quel utilisateur puisse blanchir une page, la page reste accessible et les anciennes versions peuvent être consultées via l'historique d'édition. Lorsqu'une page est supprimée, l'historique des éditions précédentes ne peut pas être affiché par des non-administrateurs. Seuls les administrateurs ont la possibilité de supprimer et de restaurer des pages.

Il y a deux moyens pour la suppression, le processus de suppression par concertation et le critère de suppression rapide.

Suppression par consensus communautaire

Chaque utilisateur peut proposer qu'une page soit supprimée sur Meta:Requests for deletion pour une quelconque raison explicitée.


Pour proposer une suppression, veuillez suivre ces instructions-ci:

  • Placer {{RFD}} dans la part supérieure de la page. Si la page est un modèle, par faveur enveloppe le modèle {{RFD}} avec des étiquettes <noinclude></noinclude>.
  • Créer une subsección en Meta:Requests for deletion descends la section appropriée selon le type de matériel que tu souhaites nominer pour effacé.
  • Si possible, vous devez notifier au créateur de la page de la consultation d'effacé. Vous pouvez utiliser le modèle {{subst:RfD notice}} pour cela. Il envisage également notifier aux principaux collaborateurs, si il les y avait.

Once a page or a list of pages have been nominated for deletion, users may discuss the request, with the request open for a minimum of one week. At the conclusion of the discussion, an administrator will determine the consensus and thus will delete or keep the page. In any case, the request will be archived. If the page is kept, the closing administrator will note on the talk page of the page proposed for deletion the result of the discussion with {{deletion requests}}. Administrators deleting material under this clause should use a permanent link to the discussion for future reference.

Critères de suppression rapide

La politique de suppression de Meta-Wiki permet aux administrateurs de supprimer arbitrairement les pages qui répondent à un ou plusieurs des critères suivants. Pour demander la suppression immédiate d’une page, ajoutez {{delete|motif de suppression}} en haut de page, ce qui ajoutera celle-ci dans la catégorie des suppressions immédiates.


  1. No meaningful content or history: This includes test edits (e.g., "asdf" or "Can I really create a page here?"), obvious nonsense, corrupt images, legitimately blanked pages or vandalism.
  2. Contenu republié : précédemment supprimé selon ces règles de suppressions, sauf s’il a été réécrit significativement pour remettre en question le motif qui avait valu sa suppression.
  3. Banned contributor: content created and edited solely by an indefinitely blocked or a globally banned user after they were banned or blocked. The terms of use allows to "refuse, disable, or restrict access to the contribution of any user who violates" those terms. Please note that deletions performed under this clause can be controversial and thus may be contested.
  4. Contenu redondant : identique à une autre page, avec aucune différence significative entre elles.
  5. Infraction au droit d’auteur : contenu qui est une violation claire du droit d'auteur — preuve à l’appui, ou contenu supprimé antérieurement en tant que violation du droit d'auteur.
  6. Author's request: deletion per request of the author, if the author is the only significant contributor, the request is not in bad faith, and the content is not to the benefit of the Meta-Wiki. This category includes requests by a user to have pages deleted in their own user space, with the same limitations applying.
  7. Contenu clairement hors-sujet, tel que des articles encyclopédiques, des définitions de dictionnaires et tout autre contenu mieux adapté à tout autre projet Wikimedia.
  8. Advertising or other inappropriate promotion, including spam.
  9. Attack pages: content created solely to attack, threaten or denigrate any user, person or organization. See the Resolution on biographies of living people and our Terms of Use § 4.
  10. Possible copyright infringement: where no evidence of freeness or permission could be obtained, or the copyright status was not cleared after 7 days it was tagged with {{possible copyright violation}}.


  1. Articles transwikied to, or already present on, another project, if a soft redirect is inappropriate.


  1. Unfree files: files that are obviously copyright infringements, or that are licensed under any non-free license including any form of fair use, or that don't allow commercial use or modification.
  2. Files that are unsourced and/or unlicensed, as long as at least one week has passed since the uploader was notified.
  3. File is available on Wikimedia Commons, or was transferred from Meta-Wiki to Wikimedia Commons after it was determined that the image satisfies the inclusion criteria of Commons.
  4. Corrupt, missing or empty files. Files that are corrupt, missing, empty, or contain superfluous and blatant non-metadata information.


  1. Not a translation, pages that are obviously untranslated or non-sense.
  2. Low quality/machine translation, pages that are machine-generated translations and/or full of errors.
  3. Not translation documentation


  1. Routine housekeeping that is highly unlikely to be controversial (such as in preparation for a page move or history merge).
  2. Redirections inutiles ou cassées qui n’ont pas d’historique des modifications significatif.
  3. Discussion inutile : une page de discussion à propos d’un contenu supprimé ou inexistant.
  4. Catégories vides : catégories vides pendant plus d’une semaine, exceptée celles qui indiquent devoir être conservées même lorsqu’elles sont vides.
  5. Aged "looks useless" pages: (see below).

Special procedure for certain materials

Any page tagged with {{looks useless|reasons here}} can be deleted after 60 days. Any user can remove the tag provided that they leave an explanation of why they think the content is not useless on the article's talk page. The user that placed the "looks useless" template must be notified. If the explanation is not satisfactory to them, this user should not place the template again, but can open a request for deletion as mentioned above. The deleting administrator may at their discretion convert the request into a deletion discussion or decline it altogether.

Revision deletion

Revision deletion is a core MediaWiki function that allows administrators and users with the appropriate rights to hide individual revisions from non-administrator users. Wikimedia projects are based on transparency, but sometimes individual revisions will be hidden because their content is abusive or infringes on policies. Revision deletion allows for log redaction as well, however this feature is intended solely for grossly improper content, and is not permitted for ordinary matters. Applying revision deletion to log entries should only be used for grossly inappropriate content, as actions recorded in logs (e.g blocks) are meant to be easily reviewable by anyone.


Any user that disagrees with a deletion can propose at requests for undeletion that a page or revision be restored. The procedure is similar to the community deletion process. When proposing a page for undeletion, please notify the deleting administrator. After at least one week after the posting of the request, an uninvolved administrator will process the request. Pages may be undeleted if they meet the inclusion policy or the deletion did not conform to this deletion policy; a mere lack of comments on the undeletion request is generally not sufficient.
