Template:Community Bicycle Organization/doc

The Community Bicycle Organization template ensures that all community bicycle organizations have a page with similar content, and more importantly that the articles are categorized properly.

Updating to the Current Standard

If you have seen a warning on your organization's page, you probably don't meet the current standard but it may have changed since you last edited it. If there have been major changes, the easiest way to update is to simply edit the article and load the new boilerplate. You should probably copy your old text first as loading a new boilerplate will replace all of the text in the document. Then plug in your old information into the new page.

If there have been only minor changes, you may find it easier to compare using the template as it is shown below.

The Template

If you were to load the boilerplate into a new page, the page would have the following content:
