Refname rules[edit]

Hi. I'm here with a question about a sentence that you added to {{Refname rules}}:

  • If a name is quoted when defined, it must also be quoted for additional invocations (i.e. name="something" is not the same as name=something).

On first glance, this doesn't seem to be true. Gadget850 says that Sanitizer.php automatically adds quotes, so they should be the same, which matches my experience editing, namely that it doesn't matter if the definition or later invocations have optional quotes or not. But before changing anything, I was wondering if there is some rationale that we don't know about, in which case it should stay. Thanks. – Margin1522 (talk) 06:07, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

@Margin1522: Here is an unquoted example[1] and a use without quotes[1] and a use with quotes[1].

Here is a quoted example[2] and a use without quotes[2] and a use with quotes[2].

And an attempt to redefine "quoted" as quoted, which silently uses the existing definition of "quoted" instead.[2]

Looks like it works. I'm sure that it did not at some point, but this must have been fixed, so feel free to correct it. Thanks. —[AlanM1(talk)]— 20:59, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

  1. ^ a b c Definition without quotes
  2. ^ a b c d Definition with quotes
OK, thanks. I think you're probably right, that at one point this was true. But since it apparently works now we'll just go ahead and change it and keep an eye on it. – Margin1522 (talk) 01:34, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Straw Poll[edit]

There is a straw poll that may interest you regarding the proper use of "Religion =" in infoboxes of atheists.

The straw poll is at Template talk:Infobox person#Straw poll.

Sorry for inadvertently deleting your vote[edit]

I apologize for mistakenly deleting your vote in the Infobox religion discussion. I was caught in an edit conflict, and I somehow erased your contribution. I did not mean to. Sorry. Plazak (talk) 14:26, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
