[[Category:AoPSWiki Policies]]
In general, the guidelines for deletion are far less strict than those of [[Wikipedia]], for example.
 
 
 
The following types of articles should be deleted without question:
 
*Blatant vandalism.
 
*Test pages.
 
*Unnecessary redirects.
 
*Talk pages of deleted articles.
 
*Advertisements
 
*Subjects that do not belong in the Wiki (as determined by AoPSWiki admins)
 
*Non-notable subjects (such as an educational website, book, etc.) are generally not deleted if they contain a neutral, thorough coverage of the section and the topic of the article is suitable for AoPSWiki.
 
 
 
Other solutions include:
 
 
 
*Merging the article into a related article.
 
*Moving the article to a different [[A:NAME|namespace]].
 
*Reducing the article to a stub.
