General deletion boxen

While this section is going show general deletion templates, the principles can be applied to any other namespace neural type of box. Note, namespace is not specified, so the template will take on the style of its name space, meaning it will look like an Xmbox, but they will change their styles when the deletion template is transcluded to a page.

{{Mbox
| type = speedy
| image = [[File:Ambox warning pn.svg|50px]]
| text = '''This page is a candidate for ''speedy'' deletion.'''
| info = ''Remember to check [[Special:Whatlinkshere/{{FULLPAGENAME}}|what links here]] and [{{fullurl:{{FULLPAGENAME}}|action=history}} the page history] before deletion.''
| doc = yes
| cat = Candidates for speedy deletion
}}
