I have added a new reference to a recent article that talks about FLI in detail. Hope this helps! Polar Mermaid (talk) 20:17, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Style & global catastrophic risk[edit]

Look at this when you get the chance: Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#Section_headings (it's a part of the Manual of Style, Wikipedia's big book of style guidelines for articles). Specifically that: "The provisions in Article titles (above) generally apply to section headings as well (for example, headings are in sentence case, not title case)." -- section headings are capitalized like sentences, not like titles. So for example a section heading would be written as "Existential risk" and not "Existential Risk" (without quotemarks of course). I thought I would just go fix it myself but I thought you or the other editor might be editing that article right now so I won't mess with it, and maybe you'd be interested in reading the manual of style for yourself. — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 17:33, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks a lot! We'll get the section headings fixed. Polar Mermaid (talk) 17:39, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
