This template flags an article for the attention of an expert or expertes in the subject(s) specified. It has the option of being assigned to a specific subcategory of Category:Articles needing expert attention, depending on the topic of the article. These subcategories are named after WikiProjects.

Important: When adding this template to an article, please state either inline or on the article's talk page the issue that you think an expert needs to address. Unexplained expert tags may be simply removed.

  • A second optional unnamed parameter, may be used to override the default "article" text with, for example, "section", "diagram" or "paragraph".
  • ex2ex5: To add additional expert subjects, you can use these parameters include more names of WikiProjects.
  • talk: If you have started a discussion on the article's talk page, you may link to that discussion with |talk=, using the section title of the discussion.
  • reason: You may use the |reason= parameter to provide a short explanation describing the issue directly within the template, instead of, or in addition to the talk parameter.

Followup

When using this template, it is recommended to provide an explanation either using the "reason" or the "talk" parameter. When adding a section on the talk page, you may use {{expert-talk}} for this purpose.
