User:Blue Square Thing

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Neither blue, nor square.

You'll be likely to find me working on Suffolk and Norfolk articles associated with places and schools, as well as a few articles about Denmark and the odd random interesting thing. Or in some cases just the odd random thing that someone vandalised and I followed them to it.

I stick draft articles at User:Blue Square Thing/draft Lowestoft article and User:Blue Square Thing/draft cricket.


I might have annoyed you with the way I reference. My reasoning is:

  • I don't use cite-web templates as:
a) I find them difficult to use
b) I am convinced by arguments which claim that they are inefficient in terms of page-load times. This is a particular concern when users are using mobile networks.
  • I use UTC time codes consistently on poorly or unreferenced articles. MOS:DATEUNIFY and MOS:DATERET allows for this, even when an article is a predominantly UK article. I'd like other editors to respect this choice - either add references yourself or stop changing date formats for the sake of it.
In particular, MOS:NUM includes a specific section MOS:DATEVAR. This specifically says Special rules apply to citations; see Wikipedia:Citing sources § Citation style. Special rules - not what applies to the rest of the article. WP:CITESTYLE then makes it clear that you don't screw around with a style that's already in place. Read it, please.
