  2. The issue has not yet been resolved;
  3. There is ongoing activity or discussion related to the template issue (with the exception of POV-related templates);
  4. The problem that the maintenance template flags is plainly and unambiguously required for a proper article under Wikipedia's policies and guidelines;
  5. You have been paid to edit the article or have some other conflict of interest.
