{{CiteReddit|author=|url=|title=|quote=|date=|archiveurl=|archivedate=|notes=|name=}}

The author of the information. Include "Mod" prefixes, such as "Mod Mark" instead of simply "Mark". Use their mod name rather than their Reddit handle.

url

The permalink url of the information.

title

The title of the Reddit post.

quote

The exact transcript of the relevant information.

date

The date the information was posted in the format: dd month yyyy.

archiveurl

Archive the permalink using archive.today and insert the archived url

archivedate

The date the url was archived in the format: dd month yyyy.

Standard parameters

The following parameters are standard across all citation templates.

notes

Optional. This parameter allows you to add text beginning one space after the end of the citation. Having no formatting (meaning you will have to format it yourself), this area can be used for anything you require.

name

Optional. If you want to use this reference more than once, you must name it the first time you use it, then whenever you want to use it again, add {{NamedRef|name}} wherever you want it to re-appear.

group

Optional. This can be used to put the reference into a specific group, to separate it from other types of reference. See here for more on reference groups.
