'''An "accuracy dispute" flag used to indicate inaccurate content.'''
+
 
+
====Usage====
+
 
+
This template should be added at the beginning of articles suspected of incorrect, misleading, incomplete, or confusing content:
+
 
+
<pre>{{Accuracy}}</pre>
+
 
+
Additionally, ensure to cite specific concerns on the flagged article's discussion page.
+
 
+
Flagged pages will be added to [[:Category:Accuracy disputes]] for attention. If knowledgeable in a subject, users are encouraged to participate to resolve the issue. The {{Codeline|<nowiki>{{Accuracy}}</nowiki>}} flag should be removed after verification/correction/removal of disputed facts.
+
 
+
====Example==== <!-- unlike most other template examples, this one is not called directly so as not to categorize the page as disputed; please update the example if updating the code -->
+
 
+
{{Message_box
+
|id              = disputed

There are some protected templates, such as ''outofdate'', that ''don't'' have a category. This in part defeats the point of the templates, since looking for ''outofdate'' articles and fixing them is a lot harder without a category listing. While this isn't directly related to what's been discussed, I mention this because it merits attention. [[User:Time|Time]] 20:20, 11 December 2009 (EST)

Note about missing template categories

There are some protected templates, such as outofdate, that don't have a category. This in part defeats the point of the templates, since looking for outofdate articles and fixing them is a lot harder without a category listing. While this isn't directly related to what's been discussed, I mention this because it merits attention. Time 20:20, 11 December 2009 (EST)

Agreed; I plan on updating all "article status" templates and will address this concern. -- pointone 13:08, 12 December 2009 (EST)
