How to delete a page

Hi! First of all, thank you for bringing to the community's attention the issues with the page. The page was indeed relying on a single, broken source, which could not be restored via the Internet Archive. However, blanking a page is not the proper way to delete it, and renaming it something else is just pure vandalism. A page deletion can only be done by an administrator, generally after some form of community consensus (except in cases where a page is obviously unsuitable, due to being fanon, unverified, etc.). In cases such as this, the best way to indicate that you feel a page should be deleted is to place the template {{Verify}} at the top of the page. In normal cases, {{Delete}} is more suitable. But, again, your efforts and enthusiasm are appreciated, and learning these sorts of things comes with time. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 19:48, August 31, 2013 (UTC)
