Example of Template madness. IMO, the only template displayed here that is valid on the article itself instead of the talk page is {{vfd}} since that gives readers notice that the article they are reading may disappear soon. --mav 00:33, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)

To any readers/editors: Please keep this image intact, "as is", without updating it. It is used for historical example at Wikipedia:Article message boxes. Thanks. —DragonHawk (talk
