Usage

This message should be placed only on article talk pages.

This template adds articles to Category:Connected contributors.

To use this template, add this code to an article’s talk page: {{Connected contributor|username|article}} Where username is the person's Wikipedia username, and article is the article title which will appear in Category:Connected contributors.

Article titles which are people's names may be sorted by surname by presenting the surname first, as in: {{Connected contributor|Example user|Presley, Elvis}}


Declared

The default wording assumes that the editor has not formally declared an interest; Wikipedia:Conflict of interest notes that those who do not declare an interest in appropriate ways violate the Terms of use - the template itself provides links to relevant guidance regarding declaration.

If the editor has declared a COI, then |declared=yes may be added to the template, and by adding |otherlinks= a link may be provided to the declaration; for example:

{{Connected contributor|Example user|Example article|declared=yes|otherlinks=COI declared at COIN [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Conflict_of_interest/Noticeboard&oldid=496108694#Sasanack here].}}

This produces:

Edited

If the contributor has edited the article, then |editedhere=yes may be added; for example:

{{Connected contributor|Example user|Example article|editedhere=yes}}

This produces:

Banned user

If the user has been banned, then |banned=yes may be added; for example:

{{Connected contributor|Example user|Example article|banned=yes}}


This produces:

Combinations

The additional field of banned, edited, declared, etc, may be combined in any order in a template after the user and article fields; for example:

{{Connected contributor|Example user|Example article|otherlinks=COI declared at COIN [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Conflict_of_interest/Noticeboard&oldid=496108694#Sasanack here].|banned=yes|declared=yes|editedhere=yes}}

This produces:
