Guidelines

Do not subst

  • Note that every article has a General disclaimer indicating that the article contents may not be accurate. As such, this template is redundant.
  • As an advisory to editors, the template may optionally be used in those occasions that many editors edit an article on the same day.
  • It is not intended to be used to mark an article that merely has recent news articles about the topic; if it were, far too many articles would have this template, with no informational consequence.
  • Generally it is expected that this template and its closely related templates will appear on an article for a short period of time
  • If you desire that an article be noticed as a topic about or related to a significant current event, see Wikipedia:How the Current events page works, and also Wikipedia:In the news section on the Main Page/Candidates

Usage

The template takes two parameters, neither of which is required.

  • Parameter 1 overrides the word "article"
  • Parameter 2 overrides the word "event"
