Template:Humor

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

This template adds a box at the top of a humorous page to let readers know not to take it seriously.

Usage

Per this RfC, this template or another disclosure template must be used on all humorous pages.

It should never be used on pages in the article namespace, because the article namespace should never include any non-factual or non-encyclopedic pages. Only use it in other namespaces, such as the Wikipedia namespace.

Additionally, it should not be used on pages that are about Wikipedia humor, but do not contain humor, such as Wikipedia:Rules for Fools.

Opting out

If you dislike having jokes on pages that you view spoiled, append the following to Special:MyPage/common.css:

.ombox-humor,            /* hide [[Template:Humor]] */
.ombox-humorantipolicy { /* hide [[Template:Humorantipolicy]] too */
    display: none;
}
