Confusing name[edit]

I feel the name of this help page is confusing. There were a group of templates known as Citation Style 2; the remaining templates can be found in Category:Citation Style 2 templates. I think it is confusing to reuse that name for this page, or to say that {{Citation}} is synonymous with Citation Style 2. Jc3s5h (talk) 12:37, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

To add to the confusion, this thread uses the same names with different meanings. Jc3s5h (talk) 12:43, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Citation formatting RfC[edit]

FYI: Pointer to relevant discussion elsewhere.

Please see Talk:Aspromonte goat#RFC on citation formatting for an RfC about the scope of WP:CITEVAR and whether it can be used to prevent changes to underlying technical coding of reference citations, including correct XML, and changing problematic ref IDs.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  19:48, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
