Citation

Citation is important because it allows the wiki to demonstrate that a statement is true and beyond dispute. Articles with statements lacking citations run the risk of becoming disputed, and this is often more complicated than providing a good citation in the first instance.

Consider first what you are citing in order to decide which template is most appropriate.

Books
{{Cite book}} for citing print products (novels or sourcebooks)—in general, you can use {{Cite book/Name of book|page number}}—see Category:Citation templates for a huge list. Most of the novels and sourcebooks should already have their own template. If not, you might have to create one or request that one is created for you.
Web sites
{{Cite web}} for citing a website. Individual web pages are rarely cited often enough to justify a subtemplate.
