Forum:Referencing the RuneScape game guide
Occassionaly on articles I will see references after facts like
|“||Players can smelt it with the Smithing skill at level 15 by using an iron ore on a furnace, granting 12.5 Smithing experience.||”|
And what does it reference you ask? The RuneScape game guide.
I personally think this is quite strange and odd considering we are supposed to provide the information. It would be okay if it was something that might actually be disputed, but referencing simple facts back to the RuneScape game guide is in my opinion unnecessary. I decided to run a Yew Grove thread on it cause I think it's plain unnecessary.
- NOTE: Support means you want references to the RuneScape game guide and Oppose means you don't.
Support - Per the smokers and noobs above.17:33, September 28, 2010 (UTC)
Neutral - While they may be unnecessary, it's always good to show where the facts are coming from. I don't see how having them would be a problem. --Callofduty4 18:00, September 28, 2010 (UTC)
Support - Citations are very underused here on the Wiki. They are something we should be encouraging. So long as we aren't putting twenty citations after every sentence, they can only contribute to an article's quality.23:44, September 28, 2010 (UTC)
