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

Usage

Append to segments of text that need rewriting:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.{{Awkward|date=September 2018}}

This will appear as:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.[awkward]

It is better to just rewrite the text in question yourself. Only use this template if you are uncertain how to improve the text, but are certain that it needs improving.

You can use the hidden |reason= parameter to give a short explanation of the issue, e.g. |reason=Very ambiguous.

Tagged articles will be added to Category:Wikipedia articles needing copy edit, or a dated subcategory thereof.
