Usage[change | change source]

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 articles[change | change source]

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=November 2014}}

For sections[change | change source]

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=November 2014}}

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