When to use

Place this template on an article when you have identified a serious issue of balance and the lack of a CivWiki:NPOV, and you wish to attract editors with different viewpoints to the article. Please also explain on the article's talk page why you are adding this tag, identifying specific issues that are actionable.

An unbalanced or non-neutral article is one that does not fairly represent the balance of perspectives of high-quality, reliable secondary sources. A balanced article presents mainstream views as being mainstream, and minority views as being minority views. The personal views of CivWiki editors or the public are irrelevant.

When to remove

This template is not meant to be a permanent resident on any article. You may remove this template whenever any one of the following is true:

  1. There is consensus on the talkpage that the issue has been resolved.
  2. It is not clear what the neutrality issue is, and no satisfactory explanation has been given.
  3. In the absence of any discussion, or if the discussion has become dormant.

How to use

Place {{POV|date=November 2021}} at the top of the disputed article, then explain your reasons on the article's talk page. To specify the section of the talk page, use {{POV|talk=talk page section name|date=November 2021}}.

This template will categorize tagged articles in Category:NPOV disputes or a dated subcategory thereof.

This template should only be used in the main (article) namespace. Do not place this template on talk pages, user pages, or other pages.

  • Please do not subst: this template.

Alternatives

To mark only a section as disputed, rather than a whole article, set |what=section.
