Hey, guys! As you may have seen in a recent forum topic, the Dragon Age wiki is helping wikia test out a new "flags" system. Read here for the official info.

What this basically is is a replacement for the current templates we use on articles such as {{Cleanup}}, {{Missing info}}, {{Pictures wanted}}, etc. Instead of manually going into an article to add one of these tags, you can just click on the edit dropdown box and select "flags" this will bring up a box with all of the current flags that can be used. Just check the box next to the one(s) you want to add, fill in the fields (like what info is missing, or the name of the article to "see also", and voila! They're added to the article. You can also hover over an existing flag on an article to edit it.

This looks to be a great new addition, both for new editors unsure of the exact wording of tags they want to use, and for all editors who are into ease and convenience.

It's still a work in progress so if you have suggestions/questions/concerns about the functions of the feature, be sure to comment on the original forum for the wikia staff to see.
