Please do not experiment with this template; you could ruin all pages using this template. If you want to edit this template, copy the text to Template:Sandbox, edit and test it there, and copy it back when it works.

Feel free to voice your opinion regarding this template.

A "remove" flag used to mark portions of articles to be removed.

Usage

This template should be added at the beginning of article sections being considered for removal. To propose the removal of entire articles, use Template:Redirect or Template:Archive. Ensure to cite specific concerns with the first argument and possibly also on the flagged article's discussion page:

{{Remove|reason}}

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

{{Remove|reason|Talk: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}}

Flagged pages can be found in Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Remove or in Category:Sections flagged with Template:Remove. 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 expand/correct offending material to prevent the content from being removed entirely.

Note: The talk page is linked through an external link: this is to avoid polluting Special:WantedPages when the talk page does not exist.

Example

{{Remove|This is just a demonstration template.}}

Tango-edit-cut.pngThis section is being considered for removal.Tango-edit-cut.png

Reason: This is just a demonstration template. (Discuss in Template talk:Remove#)
