Guidelines

Do not subst.

  • This template is for articles which involve an article about a person involved in a current event which is either changing rapidly or about which understanding is rapidly evolving. This is an advisory to readers that the article may be incomplete and subject to change.
  • As an advisory to editors, it may also be used in those occasions that many editors (perhaps a hundred or more) edit an article on the same day.
  • It is not intended to be used to mark an article that merely has recent news articles about the topic; if it were, thousands of articles would have this template.
  • Generally it is expected that this template and its closely related templates will appear on an article for perhaps a day or two, occasionally several days.
  • If you desire that an article be noticed as a topic about or related to a significant current event, see Wikipedia:How the Current events page works.
Check main (article) namespace links

Usage

  • Place this template at the top of the article, if the entire article is relevant to the related article.
  • Alternatively, place the template in an appropriate section of the article, and use the first parameter to indicate that the "section" is relevant to the related article.
