Template:Current sport-related

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

GuidelinesEdit

Do not subst.

  • Note that every article on Wikipedia has a General disclaimer indicating that the article contents may not be accurate. As such, this template is redundant.
  • This template is for articles which involve an article about an evolving current sports-related event which is either changing rapidly or about which understanding is rapidly evolving. This is an advisory to readers that the article may be incomplete and subject to change.
  • As an advisory to editors, it may also be used in those occasions that many editors (perhaps a hundred or more) edit an article on the same day.
  • It is not intended to be used to mark an article that merely has recent news articles about the topic; if it were, thousands of articles would have this template.
  • Generally it is expected that this template and its closely related templates will appear on an article for perhaps a day or two, occasionally several days.
  • If you desire that an article be noticed as a topic about or related to a significant current event, see Wikipedia:How the Current events page works.
