Template:Remove

From Void Linux Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Purpose

A template to mark whole articles or portions of them for removal.

Usage

This template should be added either at the beginning of an article or at the beginning of any article section that should be considered for removal. To propose archiving (as in "mark as obsolete, but keep for historical purposes"), use Template:Archive instead. Be sure to express with the first argument your reasons for adding this template.

The basic syntax is:

{{Remove|reason}}

You can override the default discussion page with a second optional argument:

{{Remove|reason|Alternative page}}

Alternatively you can point to a specific section in the default talk page with the named section parameter:

{{Remove|reason|section=Section name}}

Articles marked with this template are automatically added to Category:Pages with sections marked for removal. Usually there is a waiting period between flagging and removing the content, during which users can raise arguments against removal by starting a discussion on the associated talk page or expanding/correcting the offending material to prevent the content from being removed entirely.

Examples

typing produces
{{Remove|There's nothing here one cannot find on Wikipedia already.}}
