Note to admins/editors[edit]

Pink and Black Stripes is written by myself and the content on there is all my own work. The materials are fully referenced and I have used some of the information directly from my website on some contributions to wikipedia articles. This is just to let you know that what I contribute to WP is not plagiarised or copied directly fom some 'random website' as the site in question is my own.

{{helpme}} I recently tried adding two references to social stratification to an exiting reference list but failed miserably as the reference list was just code and no references (i couldn't see the references) and wondered how I add my references to that list?

To reference something, just use the <ref></ref> tags, enclosing what you'd like to reference. It is best to use a template such as {{citeweb}} along with the ref tags, so that everything looks neat and tidy. Wikipedia:Citing sources has a bit more info. Hope that helps, Master of Puppets Call me MoP! 02:58, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Social stratification[edit]

Hi Rosenny,

Thanks for your recent additions to Social stratification. I've made a few stylistic & grammar changes, to match the rest of the article and to avoid POV (point of view) problems. We have to be careful on Wikipedia to avoid evaluating the theories were are describing, in keeping with a neutral point of view (see WP:NPOV). However, I did my best to leave your ideas essentially intact. Please let me know if you have any concerns.

I notice you were having trouble with the references (don't worry, it took me a little while to get the hang of them, too). You can add a reference to the body of the text as follows:

<ref>Reference text</ref>

Just add that to the text of the article (wherever you want your citation to go), and a footnote will appear in the references section. Also, speaking of references, I was wondering if you could expand & confirm the following reference, as it appears incomplete:

Saunders, P, (1990) the Rutledge Social Class and Stratification

You can edit it in the second paragraph of the article.

Thanks--and Welcome to Wikipedia!--Pariah (talk) 08:20, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi again Rosenny--thanks once more for your edits, and for updating that reference. You asked if there was anything I wanted to see more of--I just wanted to let you know you definitely had the right approach in presenting as many points of view as possible. As long as they are based on reliable sources, a few different theories on a topic makes for a more interesting and balanced article. As you can see, one editor is disputing the POV of the article, so any information that presents a wider view of the topic is most welcome.--Pariah (talk) 00:18, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
