Revision as of 15:30, 2 January 2014

Articles that need improvement can be identified and classified by the kind of improvement they need. Placing specific article improvement template(s) on an article that needs one or more accomplishes several goals:

  1. It groups that article in with other articles that need the same kind of improvement; this allows people to easily find and systematically fix the articles needing that improvement.
  2. It lets a reader know that the article has been identified as in need of a certain kind of improvement. This is valuable because:
  • The reader may be inspired to do that work
  • It doesn't leave the reader with the mistaken impression that whoever created or is working on the article believes that the article is as good as it could be.

Using the tags:
{{XXXX|Month=MONTH YEAR|Reason=ADD REASON HERE}}

  • XXXX = tag name
  • MONTH = add the appropriate month. i.e. January
  • YEAR = add the appropriate year. i.e. 2013
  • REASON = add why the tag was added. i.e. typo, news update needed, etc.

Example: {{Law update|Month=January 2013|Reason=factual error in section A}}

If an article does not fit into the projects below but requires an update, add {{Update}} to the page. (see tab "Update: not project specific")
