[not in citation given]

[edit] [purge] Template documentation

The {{Failed verification}} tag will categorise tagged articles into Category:Articles with unsourced statements. This template is a self-reference and thus is part of the LIMSwiki project rather than the wiki content.

When to use

Use this tag only if:

  1. an inline citation to a source is given,
  2. you have checked the source, and
  3. the source says something other than what is contained in the article.

For example, if the article says that 26% of statistics are made up, and the source says that 32% of statistics are made up, then that information has failed verification. If you are unable to fix the error, then you should tag the information as not matching the named source. If the discrepancy between the source and the article isn't obvious, then please explain the situation in detail on the talk page.

If the source given is an unreachable website, use {{Dead link}} instead.

If no source is given, and you believe that an inline citation is necessary for that information, then use {{Citation needed}}.
