This is the template documentation page {{#if:|{{{1}}}|for Template:Fact/doc.}}

This page is not necessarily intended to be viewed directly. If it uses variables, some links may appear broken. Do not replace these variables with hardcoded page names or URLs.

Enter this tag in the body of an article as a request for other editors to find citations:

  1. to label a passage which is incomplete without a cited source of information
  2. to label a quotation which lacks a citation, as per Lunarpedia:Citing sources.

Unsourced or poorly sourced contentious material about living persons should be removed immediately, not tagged. See this section of WP:BLP. The policy on tagging is in this section of Lunarpedia:Attribution.

To find all pages that use this template, see Category:All articles with unsourced statements: a count is maintained by User:Dragons_flight/Category_tracker. The articles will also be categorised by month, by a bot. These categories are subcategories of Category:Articles with unsourced statements. For articles which lack sources, please visit Category:Articles lacking sources.

This template is a self-reference and so is part of the Lunarpedia project rather than the encyclopedic content.

Usage

You may use the optional date parameter, e.g. {{Fact|date=October 2020}}. This helps with the categorisation of articles requiring citations. Articles tagged with this template without the parameter will given the parameter by a bot.

The simplest way to add this template to an article is to copy and paste {{Fact|date=October 2020}} at the appropriate place or use {{subst:Fact-now}}
