Template:Uw-copying-nosource

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from one or more pages into another page. While you are welcome to re-use the content of Wikipedia, here or elsewhere, our licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. Please either provide attribution in this case, or identify the source article so that someone else can do it. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Please be aware that editors who repeatedly copy content without attribution risk being blocked from editing. Thank you.

Template documentation

Usage:

{{subst:Uw-copying-nosource}}
{{subst:Uw-copying-nosource|Article copied to}} references a specific article copied to
{{subst:Uw-copying-nosource|Article copied to|Additional text}} adds text onto the end of the message instead of "Thank you"

  • This standardized template conforms to guidelines by the user warnings project. You may discuss the visual appearance of these standardized templates (e.g. the image in the top-left corner) at the user warning talk page.
  • Please refer to the index of message templates before using any template on user talk pages to warn a user. Applying the best template available for your purpose may help reduce confusion from the message you are sending.
  • Please remember to substitute the template using {{subst:Uw-copying-nosource}} rather than {{Uw-copying-nosource}}.
  • To give greater detail to your message, you may add the article copied to and some additional text to the end of the template. If such article copied to or additional text includes a URL or anything which includes an equal sign ("="), it may break the parser's function unless you prefix the article copied to or the text with a named template parameter. Use "1=" if the article copied to contains an equals sign and use "2=" if the additional text contains an equals sign (such as a URL).
  • This template automatically populates the relevant category with the user page. If and when the user account gets blocked, or approximately eight weeks pass with no further action, that categorization is automatically removed.
  • This is the documentation for the {{Single notice}} standardized template, as used by several single-level user warnings or notice templates. It is located at Template:Single notice/inner(edit talk links history).
