Isn't Harvard referencing more of a fringe thing around here these days? Shouldn't we maybe just mention the one main one here, so that we can be more of a quick reference? Biosthmors (talk) 21:04, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

Harvard referencing might not be common (for a good example see Actuary), but the {{harv}} template is a close relative of {{harvnb}} {{sfn}} and several others which form part of the widely-used Shortened footnotes system - which isn't mentioned at all. --Redrose64 (talk) 22:39, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
