Template:BLP unsourced

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


This template is intended to be placed on articles about living persons that don't have any sources, and therefore in need of immediate attention. If the article is not about a living subject, use {{no sources}} instead.

This template also includes support for using the date parameter. Adding this parameter sorts the article into subcategories of Category:Unreferenced BLPs and out of the parent category, allowing the oldest problems to be identified and dealt with first.

This template additionally adds the article to Category:All unreferenced BLPs. This allows editors who keep an eye on biographies and BLP concerns to find articles in need of attention quickly.

For whole articlesEdit

For pages that cite no sources whatsoever, add {{BLP unsourced}} to the top of the article. It is recommended to specify the date on which you added the tag:

  • {{BLP unsourced|date=June 2021}}

For sectionsEdit

If the problem is limited to a specific section, add {{BLP unsourced section}} to the top of the section. This transcludes the following:

  • {{BLP unsourced|section|date=June 2021}}

This adds articles to Category:All BLPs needing more sources and the subcategories of Category:BLPs needing more sources.
