Usage

To be placed in sections that are empty, containing neither text nor sub-sections. Before tagging an empty section, consider removing the section heading instead - for example, an empty "Gallery" or "External links" section can safely be deleted.

Common form

{{Empty section|date=September 2017|section=}}

Parameters

date
(Optional) If a date parameter is provided, as in the example above, then the page is put into a by-month subcategory instead. If the date is left out, a bot will add it later.
section
(Optional) The section number to be edited (or whatever the &section= parameter accepts).
small
(Optional)
Anything except left = Uses an in-line default-sized message box.
left (default) = Uses smaller left-aligned message box designed for the head of sections. (See Template:Ambox/doc#The small parameters.)
