Usage

This template is intended to be placed at the top of articles about living persons that don't have any sources, and are therefore in need of immediate attention. If the article was started after March 2010 you are recommended to tag it with Template:Prod blp instead. If the article is not about a living person, use {{Unreferenced}} instead.

This template also includes support for using the date parameter. Adding this parameter sorts the article into subcategories of Category:Unreferenced BLPs and out of the parent category, allowing the oldest problems to be identified and dealt with first.

This template additionally adds the article to Category:All unreferenced BLPs. This allows editors who keep an eye on biographies and BLP concerns to quickly find articles in need of attention.

Articles with this template are not automatically added to Category:Living people or Category:Possibly living people.

Listed below are the options for usage:

{{BLP unsourced}}
{{BLP unsourced|date=April 2014}}

Historical bot parameter

An additional option, when the template was added by a bot, was the bot parameter:

{{BLP unsourced|date=April 2014|bot=yes}}
The banner message then included additional wording to advise that the article was automatically assessed.

This, however, has been deprecated since any inaccurate tags should be removed regardless of source.
