Template:POV check

Wikipedia open wikipedia design.

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

Use this template to request that an article be checked for POV ("Point of View"). The editor who adds the tag should address the issues on the talk page, pointing to specific issues that are actionable within the content policies. If this information is not added to the talk page, then this tag may be removed by any editor.

For POV issues which are disputed, use the {{POV}} template instead. For more information, see Wikipedia:NPOV dispute ("NPOV" is an abbreviation for "Neutral Point of View").


Place {{POV check|date=February 2020}} at the top of the suspect article.

Use {{POV check|section}} to tag a specific section.

Use the |talk= parameter to specify the talkpage section where you address the issue, like this:

{{POV check|talk=talkpage section name|date=February 2020}}

  2. It is not clear what the neutrality issue is, and no satisfactory explanation has been given.
