Usage[edit]

  • {{Compared to?|{{subst:DATE}}}}

The {{Compared to?}} template is in-line version of {{Weasel}} tag. It is also an alternative to the {{Who}} template for statements like "X is superior because...", or "X has advantages...", and the like where it is not clear what X is superior to or what X has advantages over.

Use good judgment when deciding whether greater specificity is actually in the best interests of the article. Words like "superior" and "advantage" are not banned and can be useful and appropriate. If context makes it very clear what is being compared to, there is no need to make it completely explicit. If the reliable sources are not specific—if the reliable sources say only that "In some countries..."—then Wikipedia must remain vague.

This template will place articles into Category:Articles with specifically marked weasel-worded phrases.
