Defines reason to clean and adds a page to the todo list.

Usage

{{Cleanup}} should be used with the following two parameters:

reason: the reason for requesting cleanup. This is useful for editors in case the reason for requesting a cleanup is not immediately obvious. The first character of the reason (immediately after the equals sign) should be lowercase, in order to preserve the sentence flow when rendered. date: the month and year (e.g. January 2014) when the Cleanup template was added to the article; this helps to figure out how long an article has been tagged for cleanup. Optional parameters include:

talksection: the section of the talk page explaining what needs to be done. Add a new section to the talk page explaining the type and extent of clean-up required so editors will know what to address, and when to remove this template. The template should be placed at the top of the article requiring a cleanup. If practicable, please use a more specific cleanup template. Because {{Cleanup}} is vague, specific problems should be identified in the reason field; a more detailed explanation of what needs to be done can be provided on the article's talk page. An article's {{Cleanup}} template may be removed without the problem(s) being fixed if it is not possible to identify what needs to be cleaned up.

Do not substitute this template.

Example

{{Cleanup|reason=the article is full of incorrect capitalization|date=January 2014}}
Alternatively you can use Template:Fix with
{{fix|some reason|date}}
