When nominating a Category for renaming or merger, Twinkle helpfully notes the proposed action on the Categories for Discussion (CFD) page, e.g. "Propose renaming Category:X to Category Y"

However if if the chosen action is deletion (the default), the CfD page only contains an entry for the category name, without stating what action is proposed. See an example at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2012_April_17#Category:Cruel_Intentions

This is confusing for editors, who have to infer what the nominator intended. It is also confusing for the nominator, who has probably assumed that Twinkle will convey the fact that zie has chosen to recommend deletion.

Please can this be fixed? All it needs is for Twinkle to make the first line of the discussion read "Propose deleting Category X..." rather than just "Category X..."

This annoys me; in fact, I notice it every time I visit CFD. However, it is not really Twinkle's fault; Twinkle simply substitutes the template {{cfd2}}, which would need to be modified to fix this issue.

Thank you, at;light. I have now fixed Template:Cfd2, in this edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Cfd2&diff=488209700&oldid=388522828
