Deletion of pages

After coming across many pages that have been marked in one way or another as needing to be deleted, and flagging several for deletion myself, I've come up with a method I feel will make it easier to track pages for deletion. I've created a template, [[Template:Delete]], and a category, [[:Category:To Be Deleted]]. Simply changing the page to {{Delete}} will add the page to this category, and indicate that the page needs to be deleted (after double-checking that it really does need to be of course). How does this sound to people? Endareth 02:37, 6 April 2006 (EDT)

Addendum: The category seems to be going weird after the first few pages I set to Delete, doesn't seem to want to show any more pages in other than those first few... argh... Endareth 03:19, 6 April 2006 (EDT)

Ok, looks like my problem was from making a quick change to the template as I was flagging those pages for delete. Doing a fake edit on the pages put them back in the category properly. Endareth 03:40, 6 April 2006 (EDT)
A reason why given page is to be deleted would be very nice. Just one-two words like "no content", "duplicate", "copyright" would be fine.
Easily done by following the Delete template with a couple of words of description. Endareth 19:44, 6 April 2006 (EDT)
Great Idea! I've just put this template in all the Bloodmoon quest pages I marked for deletion previously. Also, I transcluded the template into the one that existed before: Mark for Deletion. Is there a way to avoid these two templates from appearing in the Category? If they do, as they do now, they may get deleted by chance. --DrPhoton 09:09, 7 April 2006 (EDT)
