How about a non tertiary source needed?

Because primary sources are often used when secondary would be required. Low-quality religious articles are often written trying to "prove" themselves by using the bible or the quran or whatever, which is not sufficient. If an article is to claim anything, there has to be an independent source outside that claims exactly that thing. ... said: Rursus (mbork³) 12:27, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
Stupid me! I misread! Of course, but then {{Verify credibility}} might be relevant(?). Maybe the name {{Template:Better source}} is not appropriate? ... said: Rursus (mbork³) 12:31, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Display reason on mouseover[edit]


As with other comparable inline maintenance templates the content of the |reason= parameter should be displayed when hovering the mouse over the tag. __meco (talk) 13:22, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

Could this same change be made to {{Better source}}? I've looked at its source code and compared it to others with this feature and realized that I don't know anywhere enough about this kind of template programming to make the change myself...

As per this edit by User:Trappist the monk, the tooltip functionality has now been included. I have also added this feature to {{Better source}} with this edit. Marking as resolved. Jason Quinn (talk) 00:14, 27 January 2014 (UTC)


Cerabot just tagged one of my {{psc}}s with a date, but the template doesn't mention anything about it. Should the date param be added to the doc? czar · · 01:34, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
