Possible star article[edit]

Shouldn't this be nominated as a Star Article? Bruinfan12 (talk) 13:06, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Why is reference section called "Notes"?[edit]


The reference section is strangely called Notes, and then there is another section called "References" that contains unlinked references. I think these unlinked references should just be merged into the Further Reading section Bhny (talk) 18:51, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

No that's not at all "strange", see WP:LAY. The "References" section contains classic references that have (not yet) been integrated into the text. The "Further Reading" section is just that, other references that are useful, but of lesser status. This arrangement is particularly useful to anyone with a serious interest in the topic, or interested in developing the article further. --Epipelagic (talk) 23:46, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
I've not seen a layout like that. The closest I could find was WP:EXPLNOTE part B or D, where you have shortened footnotes in Notes and expanded references in References. This article, on the other hand, has 2 similar sections one linked and one unlinked. Bhny (talk) 00:06, 20 November 2012 (UTC)
I've change "References" to "Reading". Are you more comfortable with that? Footnotes are often called "Notes", which you can check by looking at featured articles. --Epipelagic (talk) 02:33, 20 November 2012 (UTC)
that's better. I would also change "Notes" to "References" Bhny (talk) 16:06, 20 November 2012 (UTC)
also can you give me one example where the {reflist} is named "Notes"? Everyone I've seen has a group name like- {reflist|group=notes}
Yes, I see your point :) --Epipelagic (talk) 19:40, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

A related point[edit]

Please let me suggest combining "Readings", "Further readings", and "Recent articles" into a single section of "Further reading" (singular). Doing so would be more logical, and more consistent with WP:LAY. --Tryptofish (talk) 20:11, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Resolved also. Thanks. --Tryptofish (talk) 21:28, 21 November 2012 (UTC)


Might be worth (briefly) mentioning that both words come from the same source (shoal from Old English, school from Middle Dutch, both Germanic cognates. (talk) 13:00, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
