  • [sic]
It is *not* good style to put "sic" after every quote!
"sic" exists to explain distracting stuff in verbatim quotations. All other uses of it *create* an unnecessary distraction for the reader.
See WP:MOS#Original wording
Btw: wp-de has a standing policy to hide <!-- (sic) --> in the markup.


(stuff I never remember when I need it)

  • Reference Decluttering
Footnotes belong at the foot of the document - and that goes for markup source as well!
This is how it's done:
Some Fact.<ref name="Ref One"/>
And then at the bottom the == References == section:
<ref name="Ref One">
{{cite web
  | url ='
  | title = Whatever It's Called
  | last =
  | first =
  | date =
  | website =
  | publisher =
  | accessdate =
