[útgreinan neyðug]

Er ikki tað sama sum Template:Unclear.

Use this template in the body of an article as a request for other editors to clarify text that is difficult to understand. When the problem is not with the wording, but the sourcing, one may use {{specify}} instead. For dealing with dubious information, please use one of the following: {{citation needed}}, {{verify source}}, {{dubious}} or {{disputed-inline}}. This template is a self-reference and so is part of the Wikipedia project rather than the encyclopedic content.

Usage[rætta wikitekst]

This is an inline template; place it immediately after the material in question, as with a footnote. For example:

This sentence needs clarification.{{clarify|date=juli 2022}}

This causes the tag:  [útgreinan neyðug]  to appear inline thus:

This sentence needs clarification.[útgreinan neyðug]

The tag links to Wikipedia:Please clarify for further information.

Categorisation[rætta wikitekst]

Adding this template to an article will automatically place the article into Category:Wikipedia articles needing clarification, or a dated subcategory thereof.

Parameters[rætta wikitekst]

This template allows an optional date parameter that records when the tag was added. If this template is added without the date parameter, the date parameter will be added soon after by a bot. Alternatively, you may add the date automatically (without requiring bot intervention) by substituting the template. That is: {{subst:clarify}} is equivalent to {{clarify|date=juli 2022}}. This technique also works if other parameters – |reason= |pre-text= |post-text= – are given.
Because it may not be immediately apparent to other editors what about the tagged passage is in need of clarification, it is generally helpful to add a brief reason for the tag: {{Clarify|reason=What the problem is}} (this is preferable to using a HTML <!-- comment --> after the tag, as it is tidier to keep all of the {{Clarify}}-related code inside the template). If the explanation would be lengthy, use the article's talk page.
As well as being visible in the source code for editors' benefit, the reason parameter is, if provided, displayed when the mouse is hovered over the "clarification needed" link in the article. For technical reasons, this mouse-over feature does not work if the reason text contains double quotes. Use single quotes instead, or use the code &quot; if it is essential to include a double quote.
The particular text needing clarification may be highlighted by wrapping this template around it:
Markup Renders as
Clear text, {{clarify|text=unclear text,|date={{{subst:DATE}}}}} clear text. 
Clear text, unclear text,[útgreinan neyðug] clear text.
Other parameters

One can specify additional text to appear before and or after the "clarify" tag. For example


will cause a question mark to appear before "clarify" like this[? útgreinan neyðug], and

{{clarify|post-text=(complicated jargon)}}

will cause text to appear after "clarify" like this:[útgreinan neyðug (complicated jargon)]. You can use this feature to link to a discussion on the article's talk page:

{{clarify|post-text=(see [[Talk:Example#Clarification needed|talk]])}}
