Template:BLP self-published

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

Usage

This template is intended to be placed at the top of sections of articles about living persons that may violate Wikipedia:Verifiability § Self-published sources by only citing self-published sources, and are therefore in need of immediate attention.

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

Articles with this template are not automatically added to Category:Living people or Category:Possibly living people.

To use this template, add {{BLP self-published|date=December 2021}} at the top of biographical articles relying solely on references to self-published sources.
