How to delete a page, for a user that has no administrator rights

Step Action
1 Check that there's no page that links to the page you're about to delete (how). If there is a page that links to the page you're about to delete, change (or remove) those links first. Rationale: We don't want to create red links or redirects because fixing those is more work than avoid creating those.
2 Only if nothing links to the page, mark the page for deletion (how).
3 Every now and then an administrator checks the wiki for pages that are marked for deletion (how) If nothing links to the page and he or she thinks the reason to delete is valid, he or she will delete the page (see below).
