Purpose

This tag is usually used in unison with {{must include}}. The tag should be used when it is believed that certain general information is not present in the article but it is necessary to include it. On the article's Discussion page, note the information you believe should be included before placing the tag.

If a consensus is reached that the information should be included, the information is inserted in the article and the tag is removed. If a consensus is reached that the information should not be in the article, the information is not added and the tag is removed.

This may assist in avoiding edit-warring by making a good faith attempt to achieve consensus before putting a particular piece of information in an article --especially if it's controversial information.
