Documentation for Cite

This template can be used to indicate that a particular statement or claim is unverified, and that it requires a source link to confirm.

Usage

  • Using {{cite}} at the end of a statement or sentence will generate the tag like this.[citation needed]
  • The templates {{cit}}, {{citation needed}} and {{verify}} will also generate the tag.

Examples

  • Use it on claims that obviously require a source. In the below instance, a link to a blog post, press statement or other Valve announcement should be provided.
