From Alathra Wiki

Db (short for "delete because") is a template used to mark articles for deletion.


  • By placing {{db|reason=reason}} at the top of a page, a deletion banner will appear with the specified reason in text. If no reason is given, the banner will display "no specified reason" to reflect that.
  • Using this template places the page into Category:Articles for deletion.

The following table contains reason keywords that automatically fill the banner with relevant information:

Reason Description
abandoned For pages that have been left unfinished, containing little or no relevant information
author For deletion requests initiated by the author, provided that they are the biggest contributor to the page
blank For pages void of any information
scope For pages that have content unrelated to Alathra
move For articles that have been moved to a different page and where a redirect is not necessary
