  • type=advice

exclamation mark

some text goes here
Advice contains important information the user should take into consideration. This refers to import guidelines and others. It basically says "you should take that into consideration. Otherwise, you provoke a conflict or worse."
  • type=content


some text goes here
Content issues indicate problems arising from translations or cleanup necessities. Similarly, it can also be used for incomplete or dubious content. It suggests to "please double check what is written here".
  • type=delete

trash bin

some text goes here
Type delete is used for content whose deletion is requested. That effectively limits its use to {{Delete}}. The intended message is "this may affect you soon".
  • type=notice

information sign

some text goes here
Notices are used for editing requests, "Wikipedia logo"stubs, and general notices that may or may not be relevant to the user. It is basically an equivalent to "for your interest"/"FYI".
  • type=structural


some text goes here
This type indicates structural changes to one or multiple pages about a similar topic. For the ordinary reader, it should be understood as "this is some information in case you are interested in wiki matters". This would be used for {{Merge}}, {{Move}}, {{Split section}}, {{Delete proposal}} ...
