This Template allows you to notify others that you will be working on a page for a extended amount of time. It is intended to stop others from editing the page when you are working on it to prevent edit conflicts. If you will not be constantly updating the page in a short period of time, or if you will take longer than 6 hours to complete the job, you should not use this template. In the first case, use Template:Incomplete instead; in the second case, you might want to take a break anyways, right?

You may also use the shortcut {{WIP}}.

Syntax

{{Work in progress
|user=
|time=
|until=
|reason=
|timenow=
|poster=
}}

Only timenow is required. You may use timenow=~~~~~ to leave the time of posting, and poster={{subst:REVISIONUSER}} to signify the poster.

Recommended Syntax: {{Work in progress}}
{{Work in progress
|user=
|time=
|until=
|reason=
|timenow=~~~~~
|poster={{subst:REVISIONUSER}}
}}


Or, you can use the shorthand {{subst:Work in progress/auto}} instead, which automatically fill in timenow and poster.

Syntax: {{subst:Work in progress/auto}}
{{subst:Work in progress/auto
|user=
|time=
|until=
|reason=
}}

The two may not be used together, and time will override until.

If no arguements are provide regarding the duration, the template guesses that 4 hours should be enough.

It is courteous to not block out more than 6 hours of time.

Notes

You may leave notes as to what you will be working on and why you are blocking out this time, etc. by using reason.
