This category is a self-reference and is used for administration of the WikiStates project. It is not part of the encyclopedia. It contains pages which are not articles, or lists articles by status, rather than content.

See the deletion log for all deleted pages.

This category contains pages tagged with speedy deletion templates. Before speedily deleting a page, take the time to ensure that it meets the criteria for speedy deletion, check the links, the history, and for images the file links. If there is any doubt at all, switch the article to a process like WikiStates:Proposed deletion that allows time for others to review the proposal.

Images: Newly uploaded images with an inappropriate license are automatically tagged with {{db-noncom}} or {{Permission from license selector}}. For such images, give it an hour after the upload before deleting, as the uploader may take a little while to figure out how to tag it with the proper license.

Attack pages: When deleting attack pages, it is important that you don't quote any of the content in your deletion summary. In some cases, MediaWiki will offer a prefilled deletion summary that includes some of the content being deleted; make sure you replace the summary with something more appropriate (such as "[[WS:CSD#G10]] - Attack page") before clicking the delete button. Once added to the log, there is currently no way to delete a deletion summary short of direct developer intervention.
