This is a tracking category for "CS1 citations that use |dead-url=unfit or |dead-url=usurped. The keywords unfit and usurped are intended to identify original urls that point to live sites that are inappropriate: spam, advertising, porn, etc. A url that returns a "HTTP 404 error is not considered to be unfit and, in such cases, editors should set |dead-url=yes. cs1|2 templates in pages listed in this category should be checked to ensure that the unfit and usurped keywords are correctly applied. Pages in this category should only be added by "Module:Citation/CS1.


While most of the "Citation Style 1 and "Citation Style 2 error messages are visible to all readers, some remain hidden. Editors who wish to see all of the CS1|2 error messages can do so by updating either their common CSS page or their specific skin's CSS page ("common.css and "skin.css respectively) to include the following:

.citation-comment {display: inline !important;} /* show all Citation Style 1 error messages */

Even with this css installed, older pages in Wikipedia's cache may not have been updated to show these error messages even though the page is listed in one of the tracking categories. A "WP:NULLEDIT will resolve that issue.

The above code is required if you wish to see maintenance category messages:
