This template is used to standardize the format of message boxes used by editors and administrators to indicate some action is required.
The template provides for two different formats of message box; a small format and a large format. The large format is the default and is meant to be placed at the top of the page and will automatically size and center itself.
The small format must be declared via a parameter and is meant to be placed at the beginning of a section that needs attention. This permits editors and administrators to mark individual sections rather than the entire page. This may be less intrusive for the reader but more importantly, it provides other editors more information as to exactly what part of a page needs attention.
Note: If message parameter isn't defined, no mbox will appear.
One caveat: Editors are asked to be subtle with their colorization of mboxes. Given the theme of the wiki, a red message box may be overbearing and distracting to readers.
The small version of the mbox can be colorized using hexadecimal color codes such as #FF0000. If no color is specified, the template defaults to black, as in the examples above. Below is an example of a colorized mbox:
