[view] [edit] [history] [purge] Template documentation

New, and sometimes experienced, Wikivoyage users will sometimes create an article that does not meet the normal article criteria, or a template that has not been discussed per Wikivoyage:Using Mediawiki templates. In such cases it is often helpful to flag the article/template as experimental as a way to ask the user to discuss the motivation for the new article and also point them to existing policies. This approach has the advantage of encouraging experimentation while also making it easy to track content that might need cleanup at a later time.


The following formatting should be placed at the top of a page that a user wants to flag as an experiment:


A context-appropriate message is added depending on the namespace that the experimental page is in, so (for example) a different message is presented on template pages than on project pages.
