My name is Ben. When I joined WP in 2006, I decided to take as a pseudonym the name of a character from The Goon Show. This was mainly to preserve my anonymity so that students I teach couldn't Wikistalk me even if they wished to. I have now decided to put my name down here should anyone care about these sort of things.

I have a sub-page which will link to any projects I'm working on:

Shortened footnote: {{sfn}} or {{harvnb}}[edit]

See also: Wikipedia:Citing sources § Shortened footnotes

Template {{harvnb}} inside a <ref> span can be used to create an author-date citation in footnote that is linked to the full citation at the bottom of the article. Template{{sfn}} has the same effect and it also combines identical footnotes automatically.

Using the shortened footnote template[edit]

Template {{Sfn}} links to {{Citation}} automatically, and links to {{cite book}}, {{cite web}}, {{cite news}}, {{cite journal}}, if |ref= is set to "harv". {{Sfn}} also combines identical footnotes automatically, so footnote names are not necessary. The method was introduced much more recently than {{harvnb}}.

The Sun is pretty big,{{sfn|Miller|2001|p=23}}
but the Moon is not so big.{{sfn|Brown|2000|p=46}}
The Sun is also quite hot.{{sfn|Miller|2001|p=46}}
