Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template flags an article for the badly-needed attention of an expert or experts in the subject(s) specified (please use {{Expert needed talk}} on the talk page for non-urgent requests).

The template has the option of being assigned to a specific subcategory of Category:Articles needing expert attention, depending on the topic of the article.

When to use[edit]

Use this tag when you have identified a specific issue that requires help from a subject-matter expert.

If you want help for most of the page, or if you want help soon, then try these much more effective options:

  • Leave a note on the talk page of any relevant projects.
  • Submit the article for Peer review.
  • Start a Request for comment.

How to use[edit]

{{Expert needed|WikiProject|talk=|reason=|date=}}

Parameters[edit]

  • The first unnamed parameter accepts the name of the WikiProject.
  • A second optional unnamed parameter, may be used to override the default "article" text with, for example, "section", "diagram" or "paragraph".
  • ex2ex5: To add additional expert subjects, you can use these parameters to include more names of WikiProjects.
  • talk: If you have started a discussion on the article's talk page, you may link to that discussion with |talk=, using the section title of the discussion.
  • reason: You may use the |reason= parameter to provide a short explanation describing the issue directly within the template, instead of, or in addition to the talk parameter.
Add |talk=, |reason=, or both. Uses of this template with neither may be removed without further consideration.
  • date: The date of adding the template may be used as the next parameter, in the form of Month Year.

Examples[edit]

{{Expert needed|technology|documentation|talk=Section title goes here|reason=reason goes here|date=Month Year}}

{{Expert needed|technology|ex2=science|ex3=math|talk=Section title goes here|reason=reason goes here|date=Month Year}}

Follow up[edit]

When using this template, it is essential to provide an explanation using either the "reason" or the "talk" parameter. When adding a section on the talk page, you may use {{expert needed talk}} for this purpose.
