Usage

This template is for self-references by Wikipedia to itself (or its readers), in cases in which the material may or may not be desirable to retain in reuses of Wikipedia content. Most often they are asides to the reader, such an an explanation of inclusion or terminological criteria that have been applied to an article, and which make reference to something outside the article, such as another article, or Wikipedia's notability guideline. In large-scale re-use of Wikipedia content, it might make sense to retain this content, while in a reuse only of the article's content, it would be desirable to exclude it.

If the self-reference is an explicit and inextricable part of the content, in cases of writing about Wikipedia itself (e.g. in an article about Wikipedia or its founders), instead use the more specific template {[tlx|srlink}}.
