Usage[edit]

Use this tag: {{Cite quote}} for quotations that are used without a citation. Per Wikipedia:Citing sources: "You should always add a citation when quoting published material, and the citation should be placed directly after the quote, which should be enclosed within double quotation marks — "like this" — or single quotation marks if it's a quote-within-a-quote — "and here is such a 'quote' as an example." Statements marked with this template will put their articles in Category:Articles with unsourced quotes.

Do not use this tag in order to label text which appears doubtful or false, especially in the case of biographies of living people (see this section of WP:3RR as well). Otherwise please use {{verify source}} .

Regarding the unsourced or poorly sourced information:

  1. if it is not doubtful, you may use {{citation needed}} or {{cite quote}} tag to ask for better citation in order to make the article complete.
  2. if it is doubtful but not too harmful to the whole article, you may use {{verify source}} tag to ask for source verification.
  3. If it is doubtful and (quite) highly harmful, you may move it to the talk page and ask for a source.
  4. If it is very doubtful and very harmful, you may remove it directly without the need of moving it to the talk page first.
