{{wrongtitle|title=Correct Title}}


Wrong Title

The title of this article is incorrect due to technical limitations. The correct title is Correct Title.

Also use the correct title when refering to the item within its own article or on other articles.

Revision Templates Edit

These templates are for if you come across an article that needs improving in some way. Of course you yourself should have a go at doing the revision but if that is not possible, please attach the correct tag so that others can do so.

Template Name Example Where to use
{{Cleanup}}


General Cleanup

If the article has a number of faults, then place this tag either at the bottom of the article or inside the particular section that needs it. If possible, use one of the specific tags below, but if more than two are needed, use this tag.
{{Advert}}


Sounds like an Advert

This article reads like an advertisement.
Please clean it up to conform to a higher standard of quality, and to make it neutral in tone.
See How to Edit and Style and How-to for help, or this article's talk page.
If an article sounds like it's an advert for a website, place or event rather than a balanced piece of writing about it, you should use this tag. [While it might have been written by an advocate of the place it speaks of, it still might be worth listing so try rewriting page in to an article about the site, place or event.]
{{Cleanup-context}}


Lacking Context

The introduction of this article does not provide enough context for readers unfamiliar with the subject.
Please fix the article if you are familiar with it.
The introduction section of an article should be understandable to anyone who reads the article, even if they have no background knowledge. Please try to rewrite the opening section to make it easier to understand, even if the rest of the article is technical in language. Place this tag just under the opening section before other sections of the article.
{{Wikify}}


Wikify

This article needs to be wikified. Please format this article according to the guidelines laid out at Wikipedia:Guide to layout.
PhiladelphiaWiki uses a special syntax to format its pages so they are easier to read to editors. It is discouraged to use HTML tags whenever possible, as this can lead to confusion to users who have not written web pages before. It is also slower to edit HTML than wiki syntax.
If you find a page mostly written in HTML, please add this tag to the bottom of the page.
{{Cleanup-copyedit}}


Copyediting Needed

This article needs copyediting (checking for proper English spelling, grammar, usage, etc.)
If a page is sound in content but is riddled with typos, grammatical errors and so forth, apply this tag. Please try running the content through a word processor to help you find mistakes.
{{Unreferenced}}


References needed

This article does not cite its references or sources. You can help PhiladelphiaWiki by adding appropriate ones.
You should try to cite what your sources of information are when editing topics. It's not always needed, but in the case of disputes over content, having a source to refer to is very useful. Attach this tag if you see an article which maybe sounds a little dubious and lacks a source to back it up. If no source is forthcoming, try and find one yourself before contacting an administrator over the possibly untrue content.

Protection Templates Edit

These templates are for use by administrators on pages when they are locked for protection. Please contact an administrator if you feel a page needs protection.

Template Name Example Where to use
{{Protected-Vandal}}


Vandal Protection

Lock
To protect this page from vandalism, this page has been locked. Until the the vandalism has abated, please discuss its contents on the article's discussion page. At this time, only the Administrators can edit and/or unlock this page.
This tag will be used when a page has been subject to Vandalism and needs protecting for its own safety. It will eventually be removed when interest in the page has lowered.
{{Protected-Dispute}}


Dispute Protection

Lock
This page has been locked due to a dispute over its contents. Until the dispute has been resolved, please discuss its contents on the article's discussion page. At this time, only the Administrators can edit and/or unlock this page.
This tag will be used when a page covers a subject that is highly disputed, and agreement has not yet been reached, leading to edit wars. Once agreement over its content is approved, the page will be unlocked.
{{Protected-System}}


System Pages

Lock
This page has been protected since it contains important information that should not be changed except by Administrators. You may talk about its contents on the discussion page.
Pages marked with this tag contain important information about the wiki and are most likely going to be locked perminantly. In some places where it would be inappropriate to put this tag on the page itself, (like the Main Page) it will be placed on the article's talk page instead.

Warning Templates Edit

These templates are for placing a warning. If you feel there is something wrong regarding either the point of view or the accuracy of an article, you may use these templates. You can also use the third template after the disputes are resolved.

Template Name Example Where to use
{{NPOV}}


Neutral Point Of View

Stop hand Please see the discussion on the talk page.
While PhiladelphiaWiki may not require total neutrality, the point of view of this article is disputed.
Place this tag near the top of an article if you think it is, overall, giving a biased view of the subject. Articles should try to list both good and bad aspects of their subjects and reflect many points of view while not having one itself.
{{Dubious}}


Dubious Statement

Stop hand This section is disputed — please see the talk page.
Place this tag near a statement in an entry that is of dubious accuracy. Explain why on the talk page. If the article as a whole is of dubious accuracy, use the Disputed Content template instead.
{{Disputed}}


Disputed Content

Stop hand The factual accuracy of this article is disputed.
Please see the relevant discussion on the talk page.
Place this tag near the top of an article if you think the truth of an article's content is disputed. If the true facts are not known and something is 'rumor', they need to be clearly labeled so this tag is not required. Use this only if rumor is presented as fact.
{{Controversial}}


Controversial

This topic contains controversial issues, some of which have reached a consensus for approach and neutrality, and some of which may be disputed. Please read the talk page discussion before making substantial changes.
Place this tag at the bottom of an article if the article contains some controversial subjects and might spark fights over its content, despite the fact that disputes have already happened and have been resolved.

Split and Merge Templates Edit

These templates are to be used if either an article covers too much, covers too little or is too similar to another article. See their descriptions for more details.

Template Name Example Where to use
{{Split}}


Article needs Splitting

Split-arrows It has been suggested that this article be split into multiple articles accessible from a disambiguation page. (Discuss)
If the article covers too large a subject area or its sub-sections might be worth making into articles of their own, mark the topic at the top with this tag. Use the talk page then to describe why you think the article should be split and what sections are worth making into their own articles.
{{Merge|article}}


Article needs Merging

Merge-arrows
It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with Article. (Discuss)
If the article covers too small a subject area or its contents are largly duplications of another article, adding only a little extra, mark it with this tag near the top of the page. State your reasons on the talk page, and also tag and post to the talk page on the article you wish to merge with.

Stub Templates Edit

These templates are for when you make or find an article which is small and needs expanding. Place a Stub tag on it so it is easy to find.

This template may be used in any page that contains a proposed policy document for PhiladelphiaWiki. Anyone may write a proposed policy in either the Philadelphia: namespace or in a sub-page of own User: page and mark it with this template. Discussions should take place over its content and if it is approved, this template may be removed and replaced with an official policy template. Only an administrator may do this.
Note: If more of these story templates are added, they will be granted their own category of Template.
