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)

Drawing citation metadata from Wikidata[edit]

In preparation for the WikiCite event, currently taking place in Vienna, I have built a demonstrator template, {{Cite Q}}. Much work remains to be done, to deal with more complex use cases, and to resolve the issues listed there. Hopefully that will be addressed during the WikiCite hackathon, on Thursday (CET time, GMT +2). Your comments and remote participation will be welcome. Please use the template's talk page.
