Gliese 581[edit]

I removed the citation tag you added to Gliese 581. The material is clearly and explicitly sourced and is not controversial in any way. If you would like to review the source, simply click on the link that follows the material. You will find it labeled "ScienceDaily". Thanks. Viriditas (talk) 05:37, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Viriditas; I don't see any reference after the sentence that I requested a citation for - i.e. " It has since been shown that under known terrestrial planet climate models, Gliese 581 c is likely to have a runaway greenhouse effect, and hence is probably too hot to be habitable, analogous to Venus." The "It has been shown" implies a specific study has been done, referencing specific models, but there is no superscript directing readers to the reference as would normally be found (and as is present on other clauses in that same paragraph).
Hi. As I previously said, you will find the source information under the reference that follows. On Wikipedia, anything before the source is assumed to be referenced to that source; this is especially true in a Good Article that has been reviewed by the community. What this means, is that everything between "Gliese 581 c, the first low-mass extrasolar planet found near a habitable zone...also received attention as being located within the habitable zone" is sourced to footnote 19, which is ScienceDaily. Furthermore, this information is sourced twice to two or more sources--once in the lead and once in the body of the article under the section "History of detections" (see footnote 28 and 29). So, I hope you can see my frustration with your edits. This isn't just sourced once, but twice, in two (or more) different sources. If you have newer sources, provide them on the talk page. Thanks.
