Nomination for deletion of Template:Better source[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svgTemplate:Better source has been nominated for deletion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for discussion page. Thank you.

Sorry, but I think that this template breaks up the text with often unreasonable requests to replace primary sources. The proper way to address such problems is to name the primary source in the text and describe what it says accurately. Wnt (talk) 17:11, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

If the requests are "often unreasonable" and cluttering the text, then remove the "unreasonable" requests that someone have requested and add a Template:Primary sources instead! Nobody is going to comprehend a single [primary?]! "Primary" what?! I restored the template text as it was before the deletion discussion that occurred here. Nobody is agreeing to that proposal therein to the change of the text to the unexplicable "primary?", but I object. A text cluttered with {{fact}} contains a lot of [citations needed], and that's how it is. If there are to many, then some template applying to a whole section or the entire article be considered as a replacement. Rursus dixit. (mbork3!) 21:17, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

made reason parameter display as tooltip[edit]

I changed the template such that it should now display the reason parameter as a tooltip if one was provided. It may take a couple days for the servers to catch-up (cache-up?). See Template_talk:Primary_source-inline#Display reason on mouseover for more information. Jason Quinn (talk) 20:32, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
