Template:MoS-guideline is used on pages belonging to the Wikipedia Manual of Style. For style guides that do not belong to the MoS, use the {{Subcat guideline}} instead.


{{MoS-guideline|type=|image=|text=|small=|<shortcut 1>|<shortcut 2>|<shortcut 3>|<shortcut 4>|<shortcut 5>}}

This template should only be used on pages that have received a general consensus as belonging to the Manual of Style.

If you're writing a new guideline, or substantially revising one, please remember to give the community significant time to consider your proposal. See WP:PROPOSAL for the current best practice on advertising proposals.

For a short introduction on how to go from a proposal to a Wikipedia style guideline, see: Category:Wikipedia proposals and How to contribute to Wikipedia guidance.
