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 Wikipedia:Proposed deletion that allows time for others to review the proposal.
Speedy does not mean immediate. Although most speedy-deletion candidates are processed within a few minutes, more complicated pages may remain in the list for several days.
Attack pages: When deleting attack pages, be careful 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 "
[[WP:CSD#G10]] - Attack page") before clicking the delete button. If you do, by accident, quote the content, then you should undelete the page and redelete it with the correct deletion reason, before deleting the log entry for the first deletion.

Backlogs larger than 10 days will not appear below due to limitations in the template. Please clear older backlogs before newer ones and check the "master category" once in a while if a category suddenly changes from "huge backlog" to "no backlog" overnight. Although not technically part of the speedy deletion criteria, articles which have been proposed for deletion for more than seven days are also listed here as a matter of convenience.
