Aren't all articles by definition always "in progress". Might I suggest that we word it differently?

This article is in its infancy. Use caution.

Etc. etc. As we already have the $USER:: namespace for drafts and alike. /Ni1s 19:50, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Fair comments. I find that this template handy for marking an article as unfinished by the original author - the wording is of course negotiable. It allows for the fact that few articles get written in one sitting. On removal then it is a tacit agreement that anyone can have a go at it. I find that works better than people using their user namespace on our corp wiki - some pages never saw the light of day for ages despite having useful content. Gerdesj 00:00, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
