Citation Style 1 and Citation Style 2 templates requires a
|<last>n= parameter for each
|<first>n= parameter in a citation. Author, contributor, editor, interviewer, and translator lists are checked for proper last/first pairing. CS1|2 will emit this error message for the first mismatch it detects. If there are more last/first mismatches in a citation, subsequent mismatches are not detected.
There is no requirement that each

So that all names are listed in a rendered citation, Citation Style 1 and Citation Style 2 templates require n in
|<last>n= (and its aliases) to increment by 1 for each name in the list (author, contributor, editor, interviewer, translator). This error message is emitted when there is a 'hole' in the numbering (an author list made up of
|author3= but without
|author2= for example).
The test will not detect a 'hole' that is larger than 1. It is presumed that when
|authorn+1= are both not present, then the test has reached the end of the list.
To resolve this error, ensure that the numbering of the
|<last>n= parameters increments properly.
