Template:Main Page/Message from the Editor

September 6 196

Effective immediately, new requirements regarding the use of four templates that are extremely important to the continued improvement of Bulbapedia have been mandated:

When using the templates {{Split}}, {{Merge}}, {{Move}}, and {{DiscussDelete}} to nominate articles for administrative action, a section outlining the rationale for the nomination must be added to the article's talk page. Nominations lacking an outlined rationale will no longer be considered.

An outlined rationale helps to expedite administrative action, and helps to prevent confusion and misunderstandings that can result in mistakes. Keep in mind, the staff aren't mind readers, and not every nomination reason is obvious.
