Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible) [view] [edit] [history] [refresh]

Please remember to remove this template again as soon as you're finished editing.


The In use template message is for pages actively undergoing a major edit.

To use, add {{In use|time=~~~~~}} at the top of the article you want to work on. The five tildes converts to a datestamp of the current time (see Wikipedia:WP:5TILDES).

If you want to reserve it for a more specific length of time and/or provide any message, you can use the text parameter to tell visitors of your intentions: {{In use|time or other message}} (see examples below). Alternatively, if only one section of the page is being edited, you may place this template at the top of that section using {{In use|section}}.

The template is placed at the top of a page you are actively editing for a short period of time, no greater than a few hours at a time. The tag is intended to inform people that someone is currently working on the article, thereby reducing edit conflicts. Please do not leave it in place for longer than necessary, as doing so may unnecessarily discourage others from contributing to the article. Specifying periods of several days or longer for this template goes against the spirit of simply avoiding edit conflicts; please only use it for sessions where you are actively editing the article. If you plan to take a break from your major edit activity longer than two hours, please remove it during the break.

Using this template will place the including article in Category:Pages actively undergoing a major edit.
