Online ambassador greetings[edit]

hello Drau1,

I am one of your online ambassadors. I am around to help you out with editing Wikipedia, You can contact me by email or on my talk page. Since I'm in Australia my timezone is quite different to yours. I have no tertiary qualification in astronomy or geology, but I like the topic, and I am hoping that you can write so that I can understand it! Graeme Bartlett (talk) 20:46, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I am having an issue with my references. The first two references in my reference list: García, Marga; Ercilla, Gemma; Alonso, Belen (2009). "Morphology and sedimentary systems in the Central Bransfield Basin, Antarctic Peninsula: sedimentary dynamics fromshelf to basin". Basin Research 21: 295–314 & González-Casado, José; Jorge, Giner-Robles; Jerónimo, López-Martínez (November 2000). "Bransfield Basin, Antarctic Peninsula: Not a normal backarc basin". Geology 28 (11): 1043–1046 are not showing up. When I try to attribute the reference as a citation for some text via the named reference tool/feature the citation will not show up. Currently I have been manually entering in the citation for the text I want to attribute to those two references as just a placeholder to remind myself to address the issue, but when I do this it creates duplicate references in my reference list. Here is a link to my sandbox: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Drau1/Basin_Sandbox.Drau1 (talk) 16:58, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Drau1, the issue was that you were naming your references with non-standard characters (á and í). I replaced them with a and i and now everything's working fine. Primefac (talk) 17:12, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
Using quotation marks around your reference names helps avoid problems like this. For that reason, it's generally safer to use <ref name = "name"> rather than <ref name = name>
You were also repeating the <ref name = "name">NameofReference</ref> format for later calls to these references, instead of just using <ref name = "name"/> format. Ian (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:28, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
