The quote above is an example of the [[Template:Quote|quote template]]. I think a good idea might be to add a quote to either the very top or simply somewhere in an article to describe the character/place/etc in the article while providing evidence of it. To use the template simply type:
+
<pre>{{quote|The quote|The person who said it}}</pre>

:Something like this?
+
:{{quote|Short cuts make long delays.|Pippin}}
+
:Would it be possible to place the source of the quote directly ''behind'' the quote? Like: "I'm the greatest guy on earth! --[[User:Earendilyon|Earendilyon]] 15:24, 4 April 2006 (EDT)"?

::Hm, I see your point. I don't think that would work very well for multiple lined quotes. Maybe we need a shortquote and longquote template? IMHO though I kind of like the separate line for the source, but that's just me. --[[User:Hyarion|Hyarion]] 15:42, 4 April 2006 (EDT)
