Rewording[edit]

I have reworded the template a bit because it could have been interpreted as recommending that the article be marked for speedy deletion, when in reality it simply allows for that possibility. For an example where the former template wording caused some confustion, see Talk:David Horrobin. --Ed (Edgar181) 21:06, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Inappropriate image[edit]

Disagree with use of newspaper for image. Newspapers provide firm journalism, not advertising, so the image is inappropriate. I am changing it to the letters "PR" when I figure out how to code as such. Guroadrunner (talk) 21:26, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Good point. (And I work for a newspaper!) Got an idea for a better graphic? - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 23:02, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
I write for newspapers too. I made a textual image for use on this template. Guroadrunner (talk) 05:40, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
I made a new image to replace PR, hope you guys like it! -- penubag  (talk) 05:01, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
Looks good as it's not a picture of a newspaper (my only qualm) ! Guroadrunner (talk) 07:13, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Should there be guidelines for when editor disagrees with a tagging?[edit]

WP:NPOV walks users how to resolve a disagreement about whether a tag should exist, should there be instructions for this template as well? Can the tag addition be reverted per WP:CONSENSUS, or does it remain until attempts to resolve the issue are made per WP:NPOV, or somewhere in-between? Currently there's an admin edit [1] on a new nonprofit that I'm treating as a WP:NPOV complaint, so I'm currently leaving the tag there until there's time to discuss on the talk page.
