This is just about renaming the template and possibly adjusting its heading, and I'd like to propose to rename it as simply Template:Style, then also change its heading to "This article or section needs language, wiki syntax or style improvements.". Finally, the content of this introductory page must be updated too. -- Kynikos (talk) 05:58, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
