[view] [edit] [history] [purge] Template-info.svg Template documentation

This template is intended for new articles that probably should be considered for merging or deletion, but provides a way to track these articles while still giving the creator time to add and improve content and justify keeping the article. It is useful for cases of potential page creation vandalism, articles about places that may not merit their own article, or for articles that might have other issues.

Can also be used for existing articles that currently have no content, highlighting pages that need listing or should be considered for merging.

Articles tagged with this template will be automatically added to Category:Articles needing improvement or Category:Articles needing review.

The template should be included at the bottom of the article after the article status tag, and should include information explaining the perceived problems:

{{needsimprovement|This article is about a census designated place with a population of just 1,000 people and likely does not merit its own article}}

...which produces:

This page may not meet our article criteria or otherwise merits additional attention. It may be deleted or merged if it is not more fully developed. It was last edited on 2016-01-3, 2 years ago . Please gain consensus before removing this tag, and direct opinions to the talk page.

Additional comments: This article is about a census designated place with a population of just 1,000 people and likely does not merit its own article


Also recommend adding text to the talk page of the creator of the page. Something like:

Thank you for creating the article [[name]]. If you are familiar with the destination please add some information on things to see and places to eat and sleep.

If it is a new user first add the {{subst:welcome}} or {{subst:welcomeanon}}.
