References

Hello CaptainRolly! Thanks for your contributions so far on TG. Just a quick advice: if it's not too much hassle for you, it would be great if you could improve the references by adding the name of the source and the date it was accessed. The preferred format (which is turning into a standard on TG) is:

<ref>[http://XXX Name of article] (accessed Date Month Year)</ref>

or even better (when applicable):

<ref>Name of author, [http://XXX Name of article] at [http://XXX Name of website] (accessed Date Month Year)</ref>

Keep up the good work! Cheers, --Morgan 19:47, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

CaptainRolly: working on it! :-)

References, Part II

Another thing: our Manual of Style dictates that the note should be after the period/comma/colon, not before it. And please look at the above again, because you're not doing it completely right yet.

Also, please sign talk page posts with ~~~~. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 19:24, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

CaptainRolly: this is why I gave up Wikipedia as well: too much fuss. Today was my last edit. Good luck!
