The Economist poll
I've removed The Economist poll from the lead. It was a local American poll, apparently conducted among ordinary people, not historians. The cited source itself doesn't agree with the results, writing about "Americans' inexplicable aversion to the 1990s" and that "the 1990s, by contrast, were amazing", so this falls under WP:IMPARTIAL.

The poll was included to signify the social mood of the decade, and provided a good launching pad for discussion and research, and falls in-line with any other opinion survey. I think it should be included in the lead. RomanGrandpa (talk) 14:38, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
- The 1990s aren't limited to just the US and the article has a worldwide coverage of events, so I don't see a compelling reason to include opinions from just one country. Saying something like the 90s is the least memorable decade in the US is very subjective and controversial. The poll may go to The Economist itself. Brandmeistertalk 13:39, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of 1990s's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 04:25, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
