Usage

{{User-generated source|date=April 2021}}

This is an inline citation cleanup template used inside <ref>...</ref> to flag a source as user-generated content (e.g. another wiki, a content farm, or a user-editable database like IMDb), and thus potentially unreliable, per WP:Identifying reliable sources#User-generated content (WP:Verifiability#Self-published sources and WP:Neutral point of view are also relevant, but the template's link to goes to that anchor at the reliable sources guideline).

This template will categorize tagged articles into Category:Accuracy disputes.

To flag blocks of information as questionably sourced in this manner, use Template:User-generated inline, outside of <ref>...</ref>. For whole sections or articles, use Template:Self-published.
