Category:CS1 errors: generic name

This is a tracking category for CS1 citations that have invalid generic values in name parameters.

|$1= has generic name

Articles are listed in this category when Module:Citation/CS1 identifies template author or editor name parameters that use place-holder names. Such names may have been provided by bots or other tools that are unable to identify the source's correct names. Pages in this category should only be added by Module:Citation/CS1.

CS1|2 maintains a short list of 'names' that are typically not the correct names for the cited source. Some examples are:

  • email
  • policy
  • super

If you are aware of other common place-holder names, please report them at Help talk:Citation Style 1, so that they can be added to the list.

To resolve this error, replace the place-holder name with the source's actual author or editor name.

Pages with this error are automatically placed in unknown error_conditions key: err_generic_names.[a]
