Help:Comment tags

MediaWiki Handbook: Contents, Readers, Editors, Moderators, System admins +/-

Comment tags and what is between them are removed on expansion of the wikitext. In the case of one or more comments separated by single newlines, the newlines before, between, and after these count as not more than one. If such sequences are separated by e.g. two newlines, this rule applies separately for each sequence.
