Welcome to WikiProject Inline Templates. This collaboration is dedicated to improving Wikipedia's inline neutrality- & attribution-cleanup, dispute, and footnote templates. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project by adding your name to the list of participants. Membership merely signifies your interest in inline templates and members are under no obligation to do anything; however, the to-do list is a good place to actually starting helping out.
Note that "inline" is used here in the sense of "within text" rather than "directly from another server".
A project to centralize the creation and management of inline superscript templates such as {{Citation needed}}.
See archives of Template talk:Citation needed for some reasons why this project is needed.
Open tasks
To-do list for Wikipedia:WikiProject Inline Templates:
edit · history · watch · refresh · Updated 2007-07-30
  • Resolve the issues flagged with problematic templates
  • Identify all relevant inline templates (mostly done)
  • Tag all relevant templates' talk pages with the project banner (mostly done)
  • Arrive at consensus on minimum and maximum length of reader-visible inline template messages (excess verbiage can go in popup tooltips)
  • Determine which templates are redundant, and merge them
  • Determine which policy/guideline areas do not have one or more useful inline templates and create them
  • Finish converting existing templates to stock inline template code (see {{fix}})
  • Keep Wikipedia:Template messages updated with changes to inline templates (including listing new one, handling renames & merges, etc.)
List of inline templates
If you discover a "new" inline template, no matter how old it is, please add it to the "New inline templates" section below, so that it can be processed (checked for proper categorization, etc.)
= Only part of it is superscripted.
‡‡ = Has a non-superscripted mode as well.
‡‡‡ = Only part of it is inline.
{{fix}}‡ — used to create other such templates, consistently
Deprecated (no longer used):
Noteworthy for features:
{{vague}} — has feature where optional parameter becomes the mouseover/tooltip message
{{daymonth}} (for missing day, e.g. "November 2006" when not appropriate), to go along with {{fulldate}} and {{year}} ({{date}} and {{day}} already used for something else)

Similar but out-of-scope (for now?): A number of templates are, technically, used inline, but for purposes very different from those that concern this project (at present).
Problematic ones
New inline templates
Please feel free to list new inline templates here (newest at the top, please). It is advisable to propose new inline templates at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Inline Templates before creating them, so as to ensure that there is consensus that they are needed and will not unnecessarily overlap in function with others. Once templates have been checked for standard {{Fix}} usage, categorization in Category:Inline templates, and other issues, they should be moved to the main list, above.
