Thank you.
Before creating an article, please search Wikipedia first to make sure that an article does not already exist on the subject. Please also review a few of our relevant policies and guidelines with which all articles should comply. As Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, articles must not contain original research, must be written from a neutral point of view, should cite reliable sources which verify their content and must not contain unsourced, negative content about living people.
Articles must also demonstrate the notability of the subject. Please see our subject specific guidelines for people, bands and musicians, companies and organizations and web content and note that if you are closely associated with the subject, our conflict of interest guideline strongly recommends against you creating the article.
If you still think an article is appropriate, see Wikipedia:Your first article. You might also look at Wikipedia:How to write a great article for guidance, and please consider taking a tour through the Wikipedia:Tutorial so that you know how to properly format the article before creation. An Article Wizard is also available to walk you through creating an article.

Usage[edit]

  • This template should always be substituted by prefixing "subst:" inside the template code. Thus use {{subst:Creation|user/u or ip/anon}} rather than {{Creation|u/user or ip/anon}}.
  • This template presumes that its use will be for a first response to an unindented post, and thus automatically indents one colon for all paragraphs. If you require more indentation (or none), you will have to manually add or remove colons after substitution. If you add additional indenting colons while substituting the template, it will break (specifically, the quote box will not display correctly).
  • The template does not include automatic signing. Please remember to sign by typing four tildes (~) after the template syntax.
  • This template breaks if one of the two parser function parameters are not included (see below).
