Purpose of maintenance tagsEdit

The maintenance tags are designed to tell other editors what needs to be done to improve an article. Very rarely can they be "cleaned up" in one day although it's possible. Please do not take them personally but as a "roadmap" that will help develop an article as per WP:FIRST. If you follow that wikilink, understand it and use it to build articles, editors will have fewer problems or maintenance tags to remove. Additionally, if you build the article, it's recommended you leave the tags in place. Other editors will remove them when they no longer apply. ----moreno oso (talk) 19:34, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
