This template is used to cite sources in Wikibooks. It is specifically for archived public mailing lists. It calls {{Cite web}} as a backend, but has uniform parameters which will hopefully lead to a standard way of citing mailing list records.

Usage[edit]

Common form for cases where only the message is available (with current date)
  • {{cite mailing list |url= |title= |date= |accessdate=2022-05-23 |mailinglist= |last= |first= |authorlink= }}
Full syntax (with current date)
  • {{cite mailing list |url= |title= |date= |accessdate=2022-05-23 |mailinglist= |last= |first= |author= |authorlink= |language= |quote= |archiveurl= |archivedate= |ref= }}

Examples[edit]

Citing http://lists.debian.org/debian-announce/debian-announce-1996/msg00021.html
Omitting a required parameter
  • {{cite mailing list | title = Debian Linux Distribution Release 1.1 Now Available | mailinglist = debian-announce | date = 1996-06-17 | last = Perens |first = Bruce |authorlink=Bruce Perens }}
    Perens, Bruce (1996-06-17). "Debian Linux Distribution Release 1.1 Now Available". debian-announce mailing list.

Note: the archive parameters (archiveurl and archivedate) must be used together.
