Usage

Place {{Systemic bias|bias=Topic or type of bias}} at the top of the disputed article, then explain your reasons on the article's talk page. To specify the section of the talk page, use {{Systemic bias|1=Talk page section name|bias=Topic/type of bias}}. Articles using this template as shown above are placed into Category:NPOV disputes. The |bias= parameter automatically italicizes whatever is specified there, and wikicode can be used (e.g. to link to a relevant article).

This template can take an optional date parameter in the format |date=Monthname YYYY or |date={{subst:DATE}}. If the date is not included it will probably be added later by a bot. Articles using this template with a date are added to Category:NPOV disputes from Monthname YYYY.

This template should only be used in the main (article) namespace. Do not place this template on talk pages, user pages, policies and guidelines, or other non-article pages.

Example using current date and other features

Template:

{{Systemic bias|1=European slant|bias=Western cultural values|date=September 2014}}

Output:

Category:

Category:NPOV disputes from September 2014

Alternatives

To mark only a section as disputed, rather than a whole article, use {{POV-section}}. It is not WP:BIAS-specific. See below for a list of other WP:NPOV-related templates.

For suspected POV issues which are not disputed, consider the {{POV-check}} template instead. See Wikipedia:NPOV dispute for more info.
