[edit] [purge] Template documentation

Use this template to dispute whether a page (or a section on a page) has properly been accorded policy or guideline status.

This template is only for ongoing, active disputes that are evidenced in talk page discussion. It is not intended for flagging a project page or section as vaguely controversial, nor for indicating a personal dislike of the document. There is no such thing as an indefinitely disputed policy or guideline. These tags should not be used as a badge of shame. If there is no active discussion, then the tag may be removed by any editor.


  • Place {{Disputedtag}} at the top of the page or section that you intend to discuss.
  • Optionally specify:
    • Either, a talk page section: {{Disputedtag|talk=Discussion}} will link "talk page" to Talk:PageName#Discussion.
    • Or, a full page-link: (usually to a centralized talk-page) {{Disputedtag|talkpage=Talk:MyPage#Discussion}} will link "talk page" to Talk:MyPage#Discussion.
    • A short message about what to do instead -- for editors lacking time to analyze the current discussion: msg=the default recommendation
    • If the tag applies strictly to a specific section of a policy or guideline, append the following parameter: section=yes . This will cause the template to appear as:
  • When adding this template, do not remove the policy or guideline tag, first because otherwise users cannot see what the dispute is about, and second because a dispute does not automatically revoke the policy or guideline.
