This template is within the scope of WikiProject Inline Templates, a collaborative effort to improve and manage Wikipedia's inline footnote, cleanup and dispute templates. If you would like to participate, you can visit the project page, where you can join the project and see a list of open tasks.
Some discussion of this template may take place at the project's talk page, rather than here.


All examples in the documentation show that this tag should be placed after punctuation. I find this natural since we would like this tag eventually to be replaced by a ref tag and references follow WP:REFPUNCT. Any opinions whether this should become more clear in the documentation and/or the Manual of Style? -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:46, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

This page is not the place to discuss the Manual of Style. Also, it is not true that "references follow punctuation"; only <ref> tags do, and these follow punctuation regardless whether they are references or some other form of footnote. Harvard-style parenthetical references do not follow punctuation. — Carl (CBM · talk) 13:57, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Change to tooltip text[edit]

As per this conversation at Wikipedia:WikiProject Inline Templates, I intend to add the text "tagged since " to the date string of the tooltip. Barring no strong objections, I will make the change here in a day or two. The intention is to ultimately make the change for all the inline templates. Jason Quinn (talk) 00:39, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Change to displayed text[edit]

Please see Wikipedia:Village pump (proposals)/Archive 110#Make "Citation Needed" tags less prominent and discuss there. --Redrose64 (talk) 19:46, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 7 April 2014[edit]

Samuel Edison and family relocated from Ohio in 1854 and rented a ex-officers home, that was located on the property of the Fort Gratiot. In 1979 the Oakland University, Rochester, Mich. discovered 42 pieces of typeset in the basement, that verifies that Thomas Alva Edison printed the newspaper that he sold - on the daily train ride - to Detroit. Today this is the very same paper as the current newspaper called the Port Huron Times Herald. (talk) 20:24, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 20:38, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
@Technical 13: The request was made on a completely unrelated page, so using {{subst:EP|mis}} would have been more suitable than {{subst:ESp|rs}}. --Redrose64 (talk) 21:32, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
