Template:Awkward

[awkward]

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

UsageEdit

Append to a segment of text, typically a single sentence, that needs rewriting because it is unclear:

[[Lorem ipsum]] dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.{{Awkward|date=December 2021}}

This will appear as:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.‹The template Awkward is being considered for deletion.› [awkward]

It is better to just rewrite the text in question yourself. Use this template only if you are uncertain of the best way to improve the text, but are certain that it needs improving. If the sentence is not fixable until more information is provided, the {{clarify}} template may be a better option.

You can use the hidden |reason= parameter to give a short explanation of the issue, e.g. |reason=Very ambiguous.

Tagged articles will be added to Category:Wikipedia articles needing copy edit, or a dated subcategory thereof.
