Template:Inadequate lead

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Usage

Place {{Inadequate lead|date=October 2019}} at the top of articles where the lead section fails to adequately summarize the article (e.g., because the article has been expanded without the lead being adjusted to address the additions). If the lead is simply too short relative to the length of the article, use the template {{Lead too short}} instead. The lead section should briefly summarize the most important points covered in an article in such a way that it can stand on its own as a concise version of the article.
