Proposed deletion of [[{{{1}}}]][edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article [[{{{1}}}]] has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Usage[edit]

This template is intended to be used on user talk pages to warn contributors to affected articles that their article has been proposed for deletion using Wikipedia:Proposed deletion for biographies of living people.

Parameters[edit]

  • Provide the name of the article as the first unnamed parameter. This is the only required parameter. It will be automatically wiki-linked.
  • concern=message: You can provide an additional reason for the proposed deletion. This add an additional reason following the explanation of the requiring one reliable source, beginning with "The nominator also raised the following concern:"
  • nowelcome=yes: Suppresses {{First article}} on empty pages (see below).
  • nothanks=yes: Suppresses "Thank you" message when {{First article}} is used.

New users[edit]

This template incorporates {{First article if new}}. As result, if you use {{ProdwarningBLP}} on a talk page that does not yet exist (i.e., new user), a {{First article}} message will be inserted before the ProdwarningBLP notice itself. You can provide a nowelcome=yes parameter to {{ProdwarningBLP}} to suppress this behavior. This template also accepts the nothanks=yes parameter, and passes it to {{First article if new}}.
