This page is a template. It contains no Arch Linux-related information, but should be used as part of other articles. For more information, read Help:Template.

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 "quality" flag used to indicate poorly written articles.

Usage

This template should be added at the beginning of poorly written articles or sections. Ensure to cite specific concerns with the first argument and possibly also on the flag article's discussion page.

{{Poor writing|reason}}

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

{{Poor writing|reason|Talk:Alternative Page}}

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

{{Poor writing|reason|section}}

Flagged articles can be found in Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Poor writing. If knowledgeable in a subject, users are encouraged to participate to improve the article or section and remove the {{Poor writing}} flag when finished.

Example

{{Poor writing|This is just a demonstration template.}}
