WikiFur:Templates/Revision Templates

From WikiFur, the furry encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

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}}


References needed for a specific section

Question book.png This section does not cite its references or sources. (edit)
Attach this tag if you see a specific section of a long, but otherwise acceptable 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.
