Maintenance tags
Shortcut:
H:MT
If there is a problem with a work (or other page) on Wikisource that cannot be remedied immediately, it should be tagged with a maintenance template. Select the most appropriate template from those listed below. This will mark the page as needing attention, so other users can try to resolve it, and the tag lets readers know that some element of the page is incorrect in some way.

Note that in some cases, more than one tag may apply.
