This template is intended to be used on user talk pages to warn contributors to affected articles that their article has been proposed for deletion using Wikipedia:Proposed deletion for biographies of living people.


  • Provide the name of the article as the first unnamed parameter. This is the only required parameter. It will be automatically wiki-linked.
  • concern=message: You can provide an additional reason for the proposed deletion. This add an additional reason following the explanation of the requiring one reliable source, beginning with "The nominator also raised the following concern:"
  • nowelcome=yes: Suppresses {{First article}} on empty pages (see below).
  • nothanks=yes: Suppresses "Thank you" message when {{First article}} is used.

New users

This template incorporates {{First article if new}}. As result, if you use {{ProdwarningBLP}} on a talk page that does not yet exist (i.e., new user), a {{First article}} message will be inserted before the ProdwarningBLP notice itself. You can provide a nowelcome=yes parameter to {{ProdwarningBLP}} to suppress this behavior. This template also accepts the nothanks=yes parameter, and passes it to {{First article if new}}.
