Template talk:Cleanup

Unfortunately, templates like these are uninformative and annoying.
Please don't use them unless you have no other choice in the matter.
Whenever you can, please comment on the article's talk page instead.
That way, people will not wonder what exactly you think is "wrong"...

But sometimes a template is all that's needed, when it's specific enough, and it is much more likely to be noticed than something on the Talk Page,
or else why would so many pages on the wiki already have notes written directly on them instead of on their Talk Pages?

Exactly what "so many pages" are you talking about? OBD? Those notes are not objections or improvement suggestions.
If you want a template that's specific enough (yours isn't), make it link to a section of the respective talk page, with details.
Whatever is supposed to be wrong with a "personal essay"? Whatever is supposed to be good about "encyclopedic style"?
With its current formulation, I don't think this template helps editors make pages like Oni_(myth) better in the slightest.
