The {{Shared IP}} template is an IP user talk page template that shows helpful information to IP users and those wishing to warn or ban them. It takes two arguments, one required and one optional: the name of the organization to which the IP address is registered (preferably wikilinked or at least hyperlinked) (required); and the hostname (optional). It adds pages to Category:Wikipedia user talk pages of shared IP addresses. It should not be substituted, but transcluded.


{{Shared IP|organization}}
{{Shared IP|organization|host=hostname}}


This template should be used on IPs which appear to be or are likely to be shared by multiple users - typically IPs assigned to large institutions, or to a pool of dynamic IP addresses. Where there is no indication of this, the template should not be used. For static IPs, use {{Static IP}} instead.—Bagumba (talk) 01:30, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
