Article Management Tags

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Article Management Tags (AMTs) are used to flag pages for further action, including expansion, deletion, or updating. AMTs are also used to show the state of pages, for example obsolete pages. AMTs can be used by anyone.

Inserting an AMT will create a banner at the location where the AMT is inserted to the page, and the page will be tagged for the relevant subcategory of Category:Things to do. Any editor can pick up pages from there to fix their deficiencies.

Once the page has been fixed, remove the AMT. That will remove the banner and the page is no longer tagged for any Things to do category.

Some page templates automatically insert some AMTs, such as Creature articles insert {{Stub/Image}} if a page is missing an image. But this page is meant for manual use off AMTs.

This page displays all of the various Article Management Tags available to editors for use on Lotro-Wiki. All of these templates belong to Category:Article Management Tags.
