…and so on.

The examples above demonstrate that this template creates a note directing the reader to the disambiguation page related to the page it is included in, a page whose name is the name of the current page with "(disambiguation)" appended to it. When there is one or more disambiguation pages at different titles, they can be supplied as arguments to the template.

When to use: When a page has an ambiguous title, so that readers who searched for that title might have been looking for a different article, use this template to direct those readers to a disambiguation page that may help them find their desired article. As suggested here, and illustrated in the example above, please link to a redirect that includes the word "(disambiguation)" in the title, if one exists.

When not to use: Do not use this template on an article with an unambiguous title; for example, a reader who searches specifically for "Paris, Virginia" is not likely to have been looking for an article about a city in France (or anywhere else), so it would not be appropriate to add {{other places|Paris}} to the top of the Paris, Virginia article. Also, do not use this template to link to an article that is not a disambiguation page; instead, one of the other hatnote templates listed below may be more appropriate for that purpose.
