Examples Best Practices

This flag should be checked for articles that have examples that do not follow all applicable best practices as outline in the style guide. Many users will copy and paste code from examples, so it’s important to set a good example. You may use the associated editorial block to describe the problem if you wish.

Manual of Style


Work Items

Once all examples on the page follow all of the best practices for examples as outlined in the style guide you may remove this flag.

Editorial Block

You may use the associated editorial block to provide additional context on what best practices are necessary: Template:Editorial/Examples_Best_Practices.

The editorial block should be as close to the content with problems as possible. If that’s not possible (for example because the problem pieces are in a rigidly-structured part of the page), then put it in the Editorial Block at the top of the page.
