Documentation for the above template (sometimes hidden from view).

Description

The cleanup tag is placed at the top of articles or sections that have issues with content formatting or outdated content. Any articles that do not match the standards in the editing guide fall under this label.

The tag should only be removed once the offending article element(s) are made to match the standards of the wiki.


Arguments

  • section - Used as the first parameter to indicate that the cleanup only concerns the current section, e.g. {{Cleanup|section|Spelling, grammar, and needs updating}}
  • reason - Adds a reason/explanation for what needs cleaning up. Note that the parameter reason must be in lowercase if used.
  • reason= can usually be left out as long as the reason parameter is placed last. For example, these have the same end-result:
    Full page cleanup:
    • {{Cleanup|Spelling, grammar, and needs updating}}
    • {{Cleanup|reason=Spelling, grammar, and needs updating}}
    Section cleanup:
    • {{Cleanup|section|Spelling, grammar, and needs updating}}
    • {{Cleanup|section|reason=Spelling, grammar, and needs updating}}
