It is nice to hear that you have no lack of sysops. But there are many
projects, not only Wikisources, but also Wikipedias, who have problems; even
there are some ones whre there is no sysop at all (this should be forbidden,
btw). Remember what happened on the Breton Wikipedia some 2 weeks ago - a
robot deleted simply the whole Wikipedia and nobody could stop him for a
So I do see a need to unify the question with templates for delete. There
are many many users just looking somewhere and they find many vandalistic
edits. It should be possible to post a delete template there withour knowing
the language properly. It is a good idea and it should be made in any case.

Subject: Re: [Wikisource-l] Cleaning vandalism on little-watched small wikis
While the English Wikisource may be smaller, we currently do not suffer
from a lack of sysops. [[Template:delete]] is our consensus deletion
template and [[Template:sdelete]] is our speedy deletion template. I do
not see a major need for change.
To help cleaning the small wikis, people from the Small wikis monitoring
team have thought about asking people from all projects to create a
from [[Template:Delete]] to the local speedy deletion template. The major
wikis have already set this redirect, but it would be very useful on small
projects where sysops don't come very often. Thus they could check the
linked pages/the related category and deal with the pages containing
nonsense or pages remaining after move vandalism.
Please help spreading this request on your projects and forward this
to people I've forgotten (I haven't found any mailing list for wikiquote,
for example). Thanks a lot.
