How to mark articles for clarification

  • To ask for clarification for a particular phrase or sentence, simply type {{Clarify}} or {{what}} (after the phrase or sentence) to display a superscripted tag (the tag will link here):
This is a confusing sentence, which needs readers to apply much energy and time in order to understand the implicit meanings behind it, and needs to be clarified/rewritten.[clarification needed]
  • To ask for further explanation of a point made in a particular phrase or sentence, simply type {{explain}} or {{Elucidate}} (after the phrase or sentence) to display a superscripted tag (the tag will link here):
This sentence contains unexplained jargon.[further explanation needed]
  • To ask for clarification for a particular section, simply type at the top of the section, to generate the following tag-box:
then update the article's talk page with specific aspects to be improved.
  • To ask for clarification for an entire article, consider first whether it would be more productive to tag individual phrases, sentences, or sections with {{clarify}}. If you cannot identify specific parts of the article that need clarification, write what aspects of the article you believe need clarification on the article's talk page before tagging the entire article with {{Confusing}}.
