When to use

Add this to articles that need help from other editors because they sound like Advertising|advertisement]]s. For example, they may tell users to buy the company's product, provide price lists, give links to online sellers, or use unencyclopedic or meaningless buzzword]]s.

The advert tag is for articles that are directly trying to sell a product to our readers. Don't add this tag simply because the material in the article shows a company or a product in an overall positive light or because it provides an encyclopedic summary of a product's features.

How to use

  • For articles needing major clean-up, place tlx|Advert|article}} at the top of the article to alert readers. Adding just {{Advert}} is equivalent to this.
  • To mark specific sections instead of the whole article, place tlx|Advert|section}} at the top of the section.
  • To replace the text "an advertisement", you may use tlx|Advert|article/section|yourtext}} or tlx|Advert|2=yourtext}}

Add a date parameter like this: tlx|Advert|date=December 2020}}. A bot will do this for you later, if you didn't.

This template adds articles to :Category:Articles with a promotional tone]]
