Do not add this template to a page more than a reasonable number of times. Please consider using one of the other templates mentioned below instead.

The |date= should be included, although AnomieBOT will add it later if omitted.

The |reason= parameter allows you to add a reason. This shows in the tooltip when the user hovers over the link in the template.
