Usage[सम्पादन गर्ने]

When to use[सम्पादन गर्ने]

This template indicates that the article needs additional inline citations. This template should be used only for articles where there are some, but insufficient, inline citations to support the material currently in the article. Don't use this tag for articles that contain no unreferenced material, even if all the material is supported by a single citation.

Some editors understand this template to be redundant when it is used on articles clearly marked as stubs, since by definition stubs are unlikely to be well referenced.

For articles that have no inline citations at all, but contain some sources, use Template:No footnotes. Only use Template:Unreferenced for articles that have no references at all.

  • For articles about living persons, the more specific template {{BLP sources}} should be used instead.
  • For articles containing biomedical information, the more specific template {{More medical citations needed}} should be used instead.
  • Please consider marking individual unreferenced statements with the {{Citation needed}} inline template, instead of placing this template.
  • If most of an article is supported by inline citations and a few of those use unreliable sources, use {{Unreliable source?|date=अक्टोबर २०२१}} and if you are certain, then add the parameters {{Unreliable source|certain=y|reason=your WP:RS-based reason here.|date=अक्टोबर २०२१}}

How to use[सम्पादन गर्ने]

Listed below are several examples of usage:

{{More citations needed|date=अक्टोबर २०२१}} or the common redirect: {{Refimprove|date=अक्टोबर २०२१}}
{{More citations needed|section|date=अक्टोबर २०२१}}  or use the alternative template: {{More citations needed section|date=अक्टोबर २०२१}}
The template can be made smaller with {{More citations needed|section|small=y}} or use the alternative template {{More citations needed section|small=y}}
{{More citations needed|section|{{subst:DATE}}|talk=Talk page section name|small=y}}

The optional |find= parameter is available, for modifying the operation of the {{find sources mainspace}} links displayed by the template:

{{More citations needed|find=search keyword(s)|date=अक्टोबर २०२१}}

see below for details.

placement
According to MOS:LAYOUT, maintenance templates, such as this one, should (except when section-specific) be placed after hatnotes, at the start of the article. That placement is supported by consensus obtained in an RfC at Template talk:More citations needed § RfC: Location of Tag.
talk parameter
A |talk= parameter is allowed; setting this to any value will result in the message "See talk page for details." being included in the tag. If the value is a valid anchor on the talk page (e.g., the title of a section or subsection heading), then the talk page link will go directly to that anchor; if not, then to the top of the page.
date parameter
This template also includes support for using the |date= parameter. Adding this parameter sorts the article into subcategories of Category:Articles needing additional references and out of the parent category, allowing the oldest problems to be identified and dealt with first. A bot will add this parameter, if it is omitted. Be careful not to abbreviate the date, because then it will automatically add a redlinked category instead of the correct category. The simplest way to use this parameter manually is {{More citations needed|{{subst:DATE}}}}, but it can be done more explicitly as {{More citations needed|date=अक्टोबर २०२१}} (both result in the same output). Do not use {{More citations needed|date={{subst:DATE}}}} because {{subst:DATE}} already includes the leading date= code.
find parameter
The |find= parameter is available to control the presentation and operation of the {{find sources mainspace}} links. By default, the template displays the {{find sources mainspace}} wording with a quoted search term equivalent to the exact article title. Sometimes, if the article has a long, descriptive title or includes parenthetical disambiguation terms, this may not give useful results. The find parameter can then be used to add the search keywords of your choice to the {{find sources mainspace}} links. Conversely, the value "none" may be passed (|find=none) to suppress display of find sources.
user warning
A user warning template, {{uw-refimprove}}, is available to notify contributors that an article they created needs its referencing improved.
auto-categorization
This template adds the article to Category:Articles needing additional references from अक्टोबर २०२१, and Category:All articles needing additional references, both hidden categories.

Differences from related templates[सम्पादन गर्ने]

{{BLP sources}}[सम्पादन गर्ने]

  • Use BLP sources in articles about living persons that need additional references. If the article needs additional references but is not about a living or recently deceased subject, then use More citations needed.

{{More footnotes needed}}[सम्पादन गर्ने]

  • Use More footnotes needed when the article includes a list of sources, perhaps in a "Bibliography" or "Works" appendix, but its sources remain unclear because there are insufficient inline citations. The More citations needed tag is more specific than More footnotes needed, and should be used preferentially to that template.

{{Unreferenced}} and {{Citation needed}}[सम्पादन गर्ने]

  • Use Unreferenced when there are no citations of any kind in an article. If citations have been added to an article, but they are insufficient, then use More citations needed.
  • Alternatively, if an article has sufficient inline citations, but lacks citations covering specific information (such as missing a citation on a quotation), then use the inline citation template {{Citation needed}} to indicate more precisely where additional citations are needed. Unlike the inline Citation needed, More citations needed is placed as a general banner at the top of an article.
  • The {{More citations needed section}} and {{Unreferenced section}} templates are available to use for problems that are not article-wide.
  • If you decide to change a tag from Unreferenced to More citations needed, don't forget to update the date stamp in the tag, if necessary.

{{Primary sources}}[सम्पादन गर्ने]

  • If an article has a sufficient amount of inline citations, but the citations are from primary sources (see WP:USEPRIMARY), then use {{Primary sources}}.

{{Third-party}}[सम्पादन गर्ने]

  • If an article has sufficient inline citations, but the citations are from sources affiliated with the subject (see WP:INDY), then use {{Third-party}}.

{{One source}}[सम्पादन गर्ने]

  • If an article has exactly one source and that single source is likely to result in bias or other problems in the article (e.g., it cites one fringe-y book instead of a good textbook), then use {{One source}}.

{{More medical citations needed}}[सम्पादन गर्ने]

  • If the article contains biomedical information, sources must meet the standards of WP:MEDRS ("it is vital that the biomedical information in articles be based on reliable, third-party, published sources and accurately reflect current medical knowledge"). If there are inline citations for biomedical information, but they do not meet the required standards, then use {{More medical citations needed}}.

{{Citation style}}[सम्पादन गर्ने]

  • The More citations needed template is intended for use in articles that need additional citations, while the citation style template is used to request consistency within the citations present in an article (see WP:CITEVAR). For example, use citation style when there is a mixture of footnotes and parenthetical references.

{{No footnotes}} and {{More footnotes needed}}[सम्पादन गर्ने]

  • More citations needed can be used when there are no "References" or "Further reading" sections present in the article.

{{Sources exist}}[सम्पादन गर्ने]

  • Sources exist is similar to More citations needed, because both templates indicate the need for more references. However, {{Sources exist}} indicates that a user has already checked that reliable sources are available to be cited, but has not yet added them to the article. By using this template, the assertion is made that the article is notable, but needs more citations.
