External link templates
| Pages in this category should be moved to subcategories when appropriate.
This category may require frequent maintenance to avoid becoming too large. It should list very few, if any, article pages directly and should mainly contain appropriately categorized subcategories.
This category includes templates that create links to external resources. Generally, templates should only be made for links to sites that meet one or more of these three criteria:
- The site is a commonly linked primary source (e.g., UK Intellectual Property Office).
- The site is a high-quality reliable source that covers the subject in greater detail than Scratchpad can, or should.
- The site is a Wikimedia sisterproject (e.g., Wiktionary). These should be categorized in Category:Interwiki link templates.
Scratchpad prohibits the linking of copyright violations, malware, and spam regardless of whether the link is typed directly or placed with a template. All links and link templates should be used only in ways that comply with the external links and citing sources guidelines.
