Use this template to request that an article be checked for POV ("Point of View"). The editor who adds the tag should address the issues on the talk page, pointing to specific issues that are actionable within the content policies.

For POV issues which are disputed, use the {{POV}} template instead. For more information, see Wikipedia:NPOV dispute ("NPOV" is an abbreviation for "Neutral Point of View").


Place {{POV-check|date=December 2020}} at the top of the suspect article.

Use {{POV-check|section}} to tag a specific section.

Use the |talk= parameter to specify the talkpage section where you address the issue, like this:

{{POV-check|talk=talkpage section name|date=December 2020}}
