This template is intended to be placed at the top of articles about living persons that need additional references, and therefore in need of immediate attention. If the article is not about a living or recently deceased subject, you may wish to use {{Refimprove}} instead.

Please add a date parameter. Adding a date parameter sorts the article into subcategories of Category:BLP articles lacking sources and out of the parent category, allowing the oldest problems to be identified and dealt with first.

Finally, if the article has a defaultsort, this is used for these categories as well. Otherwise, it is sorted on the first word (usually the first name).


  • date = May 2015 - required parameter, will be added by bot
  • reason = text - optional parameter which appends advisory text


Paste-ready example: {{BLP sources|date=May 2015}}
Example with reason: {{BLP sources|date=May 2015|reason=}}

This template can be used with a "section" parameter to tag specific sections: {{BLP sources|section|date=May 2015}}
