Is there any other option other than reflink to solve bare URL problem (preferably script or anything online) --Tito Dutta✉ 01:00, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
That would be great. Could some work on a bot that would do this? Putting refs in full proper format is the most tedious and one of the least enjoyable parts of contributing to Wikipedia. I want to write and provide a link to a reference, not fill out some form. I imagine I'm not alone in this sentiment. Ufwuct (talk) 16:32, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
