Fix Image Section

Could someone with more experience fix the Image section. The instructions are wrong. see: Captain Redbeard history to see what happens when you use the instructions provided. BTW Thanks Roscohead for correcting the code. Tedward 12:20, 14 April 2007 (EDT)

FAQ for deleting(moving) a page

I would like to add this to the FAQ, unless there is a better place for it. What do you think?

I see a page that needs deleted. What should I do?

Check the page's discussion. If you're not absolutely sure it needs deleted, you should probably ask first. If you need to move all the content to a different page, move it, then use a redirect (e.g. #REDIRECT [[Destination page]]) on the original page. If there is salvagable content on the page, and it needs to go to disparate pages, move it, then use the Delete template. If there is nothing salvagable, delete the content and tag the original page with the Delete template. See Template_talk:Delete for instructions. --ALittleSlow 22:40, 8 May 2012 (CDT)

In practice if it's a spammer I used to just delete, and block the spammer without a lot of (any?) discussion. Suggest that for clear spam we just do that rather than discussing.... but for the 5% or less that isn't spam, this is spot on. Typo alert: Salvagable should be Salvageable :) ++Lar: t/c 16:59, 4 May 2012 (CDT)
Sounds good for a start. The Question should say ".. needs to be deleted..." Oh, and don't forget to sign your talk using the four-squiggles. Tedward 15:10, 8 May 2012 (CDT)
