Usage

Add this template to the top of any page whose article subject is, in your judgment, reasonably likely to be non-notable (not the sort of subject that Wikipedia ought to have an article about). When an article is certainly, hopelessly non-notable, then you should nominate it for proposed deletion or take it to Articles for deletion instead.

Deletion is not clean up. Do not use this tag merely because the page requires significant work. Notability requires only that appropriate sources have been published about the subject. It does not require that any editor has already named these sources, followed the neutral, encyclopedic style, or otherwise written a good article.

  • {{Notability|date=September 2014}}

or

  • {{Notability|Org|date=September 2014}} if a specific parameter is wanted.

In the above example "Org" refers to organizations and companies. The parameter can be changed to any of the options in the list below; for example: {{notability|academics|date=September 2014}}. Note: Insert the actual month and year that you place the template on the page. Do not use the automatic {{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}} templates.

The notability template should never be used with subst.

This template will add the article to Category:All articles with topics of unclear notability and Category:Articles with topics of unclear notability from September 2014, both hidden categories.

Providing no arguments to the template will link to the generic notability guidelines. An optional argument renders the message more specific. Specific options include:

Argument Specific guideline
Academic journals notability guideline for academic journals
Academics or Prof notability guideline for academics
Astro notability guideline for astronomical objects
Bio, Biography, or Biographies notability guideline for biographies
Book or Books notability guideline for books
Companies, Corp, Institutions,
Org, Organisations, or Organizations
notability guidelines for companies and organizations
Event or Events notability guideline for events
Film, Films, Movie, or Movies notability guideline for films
Geo, Geographic, Geography,
Place, or Places
notability guideline for geographic features
List or Lists notability guideline for stand-alone lists
Music notability guideline for music
Neologisms notability guideline for neologisms
Numbers notability guideline for numbers
Products notability guidelines for products and services
Sport or Sports notability guideline for sports and athletics
Web notability guideline for web content

Otherwise the main general notability guideline article is referenced.

Removing this tag

If you find an article that is tagged as having notability concerns, and you are certain that enough in-depth, independent sources have been published about the subject to overcome any notability issues, then you may remove this tag. It is highly desirable, but not technically required, for you to add a list of good sources to the article or its talk page, so that other editors will know about the existence of these sources.

If the template is re-added, please do not edit war over it. Questions of notability can be resolved through discussion or through Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. If the article exists within the scope of a specific WikiProject it may be beneficial to invite feedback from the group.
