A speedy keep is a decision made in the requests for deletion when an article should be kept speedily.
Should any one of the following criteria apply, any request for deletion can be speedily kept:
- There is no remaining argument for deletion. This includes:
- When the article is fixed so that the arguments given at any time are invalid.
- When the original argument is considered completely wrong.
- When the nomination is considered vandalism.
A non-administrator can close a discussion as speedy keep without the need of an administrator to endorse it. However, administrators do have the right to revert such a decision. To avoid conflicts of interest, please do not speedily keep a page you have created or are closely related to. If a speedy keep is blatant vandalism, then any user can undo or roll back such a decision. If this is repeated, the user who speedily kept the request can be blocked for edit warring as well as vandalism, or banned from participating in the requests for deletion.
