When to use

Add this to the top of the External links section whenever:

  • There are too many links for this article. (Most editors object to more than about eight or sometimes ten links, but the best number for a given article depends on the specific circumstances, and may range from zero to more than a dozen.)
  • One or more of the links present (regardless of number) are inappropriate for any reason.

If there are external links within the body of an article (which is almost always inappropriate), this tag should be placed at the top of the article instead.

Please consider fixing the problem yourself, rather than using this tag to ask someone else to do it. Don't forget to remove this template when the concerns appear to have been resolved.

Usage

Use:

{{External links|date=August 2022}} or
{{External links|section|date=August 2022}} to apply to a single section

This template will categorize tagged articles into Category:LIMSwiki external links cleanup and Category:LIMSwiki spam cleanup.

  • This template is a self-reference]].
  • Please do not substitute this template.

If this is a perennial problem, consider using {{Prone to spam}} on the talk page or substituting {{No more links}} in the external links section.
