Searching for instructions[edit source]

Someone searching for how to delete an article might search for "Delete article" or "Delete page."; Those two searches yield quite different results, and neither easily points to the only article I can find that actually gives specific "how to" instructions: FamilySearch Wiki:Deletion Process.

Some of the hits you'll get:

FamilySearch Wiki:Deleting Articles or Pages

FamilySearch Wiki:Delete or archive a page

FamilySearch Wiki:Deletion guidelines for administrators

I thought there was a Help article on deleting pages, but maybe not. --Fran 18:16, 10 September 2010 (UTC))

5 day grace period[edit source]

How do we know when an article is submitted for deletion and when the five days have expired? Is this a manual process only? --Fran 18:16, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
