Template:Notability

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

UsageEdit

Add this template to the top of any article where you think the subject does not meet Wikipedia's notability guidelines (not the sort of subject that Wikipedia should have an article about). When an article is definitely not notable, and no reliable sources can be found to support its notability, then you should nominate it for quick deletion instead (use the shortcut {{notable}} template).

Deletion is not meant to be cleanup. Do not use this tag simply because the page needs a lot of work. Generally, notability requires only that reliable, secondary sources have been published about the subject.

  • {{Notability|date=April 2021}}

This template will categorise tagged articles into Category:Articles with topics that may not be notable. It should never be used with subst.

Providing no arguments to the template will link to the generic notability guidelines. An optional argument can make the message more specific. Specific options include:

Removing this tagEdit

If you find an article that is tagged as having notability concerns, it is recommended that you add a list of independent sources have been published about the subject to the article or its talk page before removing this tag.
