  • 1B: I took a look at the MOS and couldn't find directions one way or the other, but I decided to convert the links to footnotes for consistency.
    • I was just asking, cause I too was looking if the formats are accepted like that, but never found anything on that. --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 04:56, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
  • 2B: Added.

Thanks for taking a look at it! – SJL 04:49, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you to SJL for getting the stuff I left at the talkpage, cause I have gone off and passed the article to GA. Congrats. ;) --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 04:56, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
Great! Thanks again. – SJL 05:01, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
You are quite welcome. I would like a favor, if you can add the article at the GA page, since I don't know what exact category it belongs in, I would appreciate it, as well to promote the article is GA. :) --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 05:05, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
I took a look, and there really isn't an appropriate category at the moment, so I've made a proposal to create a new sub-category called 'Interdisciplinary' under 'Social sciences and society'. – SJL 16:04, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
