Template:Technical/doc

From Miki - Matrix Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This template is used to identify articles or sections featuring excessive jargon, without enough explanation of concepts and too difficult for readers to understand without a background in the field. The article should be edited to be made simpler, or the presentation of the topic should be explained or reworded.

When adding this template, explain the issue in the edit summary or on the talk page. Without such explanation, editors with the knowledge to fix the issue often cannot address the issue as they do not know why the template was added in the first place.
