The Firefly and Serenity Database's Deletion policy is simple. Articles that do not fit into this wiki or are proven non-notable non-canon will be put up for a vote to be deleted.

Notability requirementsEdit

  • Notability of an article is determined via the Google test or other relevant search. Articles failing this test (usually fanon) are deleted.


  • Obvious fanon articles are to be marked with the {{delete}} tag (by non-admins), and fanon inserted into existing articles is to be removed. For fanon articles that are less obvious, the {{verify}} tag should be put on the article, and if no sources are provided in 7 days, the article will be deleted.

Junk articlesEdit

  • "Junk articles" refers to articles containing nothing but nonsense, spam, or inappropriate material/language. These are to be marked with the {{delete}} tag.
