Template:Opinion

[opinion]

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

Usage

This is an inline cleanup tag which may be placed within an article at the end of a paragraph or sentence to indicate that it appears to contain information which is based on someone's opinion rather than on an appropriate published source.

Placing this tag will add the article to Category:Articles with minor POV problems. Hovering over this tag will produce the text, 'This statement may be opinion presented as fact.' Any editor may place this tag, and any editor may remove it once the issue has been addressed or the sentence/paragraph in question has been established as being factual rather than opinion.

Avoid placing this tag multiple times within the same article, as this will appear to be TAGBOMBING the piece and is not usually helpful.

{{Opinion|date=Month and year}}

Parameters

  • |date=: the date the tag was added

Example

Input:

{{Opinion|date=March 2021}}

Result:

[opinion]

Hovering over the link will show the date in the tooltip.
