Template-info.png Documentation


This template is used to identify articles that need attention. This serves two functions:

  1. Notifies editors the article needs attention
  2. Alerts readers that the information may not be accurate

Usage[edit source]

Basic usage[edit source]

{{Cleanup}}
{{Cleanup|date=February 4, 2016}}
{{Cleanup|date=February 4, 2016|Reason=Reason: Bad grammar.}}
{{Cleanup|date=February 4, 2016|Reason=Reason: Bad grammar.|nocat=1}}

Place the template at the top of the article and optionally provide a reason cleanup is necessary. The result will be a notice at the top of the page requesting help cleaning up the article.

If the reason is lengthy or you would like to spark a discussion, use the page's talk page, which is linked from inside the infobox.

Auto-categorization[edit source]

By default this template will categorize articles in a hidden maintenance category: Category:Cleanup.

It is also possible to categorize articles in other categories, depending on the use of specific keywords (documented below). If the keyword "Outdated" is used for the "Reason" parameter as in: |Reason=Outdated, the template will categorize the article into the Category:Cleanup_outdated category.

Auto-categorization can be suppressed by using the |nocat=1 parameter.
