Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Self-references to avoid


This guideline is about self-references and specifies which types of self-references should be avoided and which kinds are acceptable. A self-reference in an article usually mentions Wikipedia directly or tells readers to take an action on Wikipedia, such as editing the article.

Typically, self-references within Wikipedia articles to the Wikipedia project should be avoided. Others, such as maintenance templates, may be necessary.
