[edit] General Templates

This is a list of general templates that may be used where needed on any page.

Template Name Example Where to use
{{disambig}}


Disambiguation

----

This is a disambiguation page — a navigational aid which lists pages that might otherwise share the same title. If an article link referred you here, you might want to go back and fix it to point directly to the intended page.

This template is to be put on any disambiguation pages after the list of alternate pages to remind users to update their links where needed.
{{spoiler}}


Spoiler


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

This template is to be put directly before any content in an article which would spoil the enjoyment of those who have not yet read or viewed the item being written about. Any content above a spoiler warning should inform without giving away the details listed below the spoiler line.
{{wrongtitle|title=Correct Title}}


Wrong Title

The title of this article is incorrect due to technical limitations. The correct title is Correct Title.
Due to technical limitations of the MediaWiki software, some titles are not allowed by the system. Instead, give the article a suitable name. For example, for an article about #furry, call it Furry (chat channel) and apply this title with the correct title inserted. Also use the correct title when refering to the item within its own article or on other articles.
{{lowercase}}


Wrong Title

For use instead of Template:wrongtitle when only the first letter needs to be lowercase. Works regardless of the namespace. Does not change the real title of the article, so linking still works.
{{Wikipedia|Article Title}}


Wikipedia Quotation

Smallwikipedialogo.png
This template is to be put at the bottom of any page which contains quoted text from Wikipedia. Replace Article Title in the template code with the name of the article on Wikipedia that was quoted from.
{{Wikipedia deleted|Article Title|Page history}}


Wikipedia Quotation (deleted/redirected article)

Smallwikipedialogo.png
This template is to be put at the bottom of any page which contains quoted text from Wikipedia, where the original page has been deleted (and perhaps subsequently redirected). Replace Article Title in the template code with the name of the article on Wikipedia that was quoted from. If the history is not publicly available at Wikipedia, replace Page history with the name of a page with a copy of the deleted page's history, such as Article Title/Wikipedia page history. A Wikipedia administrator can give you this information.
{{Current}}


Current On-going Event

This article contains information about a current event.
Information may change rapidly as the event progresses.
This template is to be put near to the top of any page which contains information about something that is currently happening and has information which may be changing very quickly. A Furry example for the use of this would be articles about Furry Conventions as they happening.
{{Inuse}}


In Use

This article is actively undergoing a major edit.
As a courtesy, please do not make edits to this article while this message is displayed, in order to avoid edit conflicts. If you need to know who is working on the article and when the edit session began, please check the edit history.

This template may be used if you want to make a big change to an article and not have other users make little edits while you are working, causing an Edit Conflict when you try to save. Place this template at the top of the page, put 'Marked In Use' in the Edit Summary and Save Changes before choosing to Edit again. Remember to remove it when you make your final save.
If you find this template on a page, check the page's edit history to see when it was applied. If it is over an hour old, its probably safe to remove and continue editing.
{{Contributor|Username}}


Contributor

This person is a WikiFur user: WikiFur User
This template should be placed at the bottom of articles which are about people who are also editors and contributors to Wikifur. The field should be the username of the editor. (No 'User:' is needed.) Also, to link back from the user page, please place the ContributorU template on the editor's user page. It is listed here.
{{to do}}


To do list

Pending tasks for Templates/All Templates:

edit - history - watch - purge

WikiFur:Templates/All Templates/to do

This template is intended to be placed on various pages (such as talk pages, WikiProject pages, user pages...), where a brief list of what needs to be done would be helpful. Note that this template (copy-pasted from Wikipedia) has only recently been added to WikiFur, and as such may be slightly buggy, and the template may be tweaked or changed in the near future to adapt it to WikiFur.

[edit] Deletion Templates

To suggest pages or files for deletion, please use the following templates.

Template Name Example Where to use
{{Delete}}


Delete

Stop hand.png This item may not be appropriate for inclusion on WikiFur in this form.
Please see the talk page or edit summary for discussion.
To suggest deletion of an article, page, or file. Reason should be stated in edit summary (edit history) or on the talk page of the item.
{{SpeedyDelete}}


Speedy Deletion

Speedy deletion This page is a candidate for speedy deletion.

If you disagree with its speedy deletion, please explain why on its talk page or at Wikifur:Speedy deletion. If this page obviously does not meet the criteria for speedy deletion, or you intend to fix it, please remove this notice, but do not remove this notice from an article that you have created yourself.

Colleagues - Remember to check if anything links here and the page history (last edit) before deleting.

This template marks an article for speedy deletion. Place this at the top of the page.
Warning: It's not usually a good idea to list articles with content as needing deleting. Consider revising. Contact a curator if you are unsure.

[edit] Revision Templates

These templates are for articles that need change or improving in some way. Of course you yourself should have a go at doing the revision but if that is not possible, please attach the correct tag so that others can do so.

Template Name Example Where to use
{{Cleanup}}


General Cleanup

Broom icon.png This article needs to be cleaned up to conform to WikiFur style and standards.
For specifics, check the edit history and talk page. Consult the Furry Book of Style for editing help.
Place this tag at the top of an article which needs cleanup to match WikiFur style and format. If possible, use one of the specific tags below, but if more than two are needed, use this tag.
{{Advert}}


Reads like an Advert

Broom icon.png This article reads like an advertisement. Please clean it up to make it neutral in tone.
For specifics, check the edit history and talk page. Consult the Furry Book of Style for help.
If an article reads like it's an advert for the topic rather than a balanced piece of writing about it, you should use this tag. [While it might have been written by an advocate of the place it speaks of, it still might be worth listing so try rewriting page in to an article about the site, place or event.]
{{Cleanup-context}}


Lacking Context

Question mark.svg.png This article does not provide enough context. Please fix the article if you are familiar with the subject. Articles without enough context to be cleaned up or expanded may be deleted.
For specifics, check the edit history and talk page. Consult the Furry Book of Style for editing help.
The introduction section of an article should be understandable to anyone who reads the article, even if they have no background knowledge. Please try to rewrite the opening section to make it easier to understand, even if the rest of the article is technical in language. Place this tag just under the opening section before other sections of the article.
{{Identity}}


Identity is unclear

User-Pict.png This article does not provide enough information to determine whether the identity described is a person, character or fursona.
For specifics, check the edit history and talk page. Consult the Furry Book of Style for editing help.
The article does not provide sufficient information for the reader to ascertain the identity of the subject (person, character, or fursona). Please try to provide additional information to make the identity clear.
{{Wikify}}


Wikify

Broom icon.png This article needs to be wikified (formatted according to the Furry Book of Style).
For specifics, check the edit history and talk page. Consult the Furry Book of Style for editing help.
WikiFur uses a special syntax to format its pages so they are easier to read to editors. It is discouraged to use HTML tags whenever possible, as this can lead to confusion to users who have not written web pages before. It is also slower to edit HTML than wiki syntax.
If you find a page mostly written in HTML, please add this tag to the bottom of the page.
{{Cleanup-copyedit}}


Copyediting Needed

Writing Magnifying.PNG This article needs copyediting (for correct spelling, grammar, usage, etc.)
For specifics, check the edit history and talk page. Consult the Furry Book of Style for editing help.
If a page is sound in content but is riddled with typos, grammatical errors and so forth, apply this tag. Please try running the content through a word processor to help you find mistakes.
{{Unreferenced}}


References needed

Question book.png This article does not cite its references or sources. You can help WikiFur by adding references.
For specifics, check the edit history and talk page. Consult the Furry Book of Style for editing help.
You should try to cite what your sources of information are when editing topics. It's not always needed, but in the case of disputes over content, having a source to refer to is very useful. Attach this tag if you see an article which sounds dubious and lacks a source to back it up. If no source is forthcoming, try to find one yourself before contacting an administrator over the possibly untrue content.
{{Unreferenced-section}}
