Allright, people. I'm going to introduce sourcing to the wiki. Sources, or references, show where the information on a certain article comes from, be it games or websites. I want this applied to every article, as I have seen information on a few articles and I'm not too sure about the reliability of these. To add sources to an article, do the following:

Example:

<ref>''[[Saints Row 2]]''</ref>

or

<ref name="Saints Row 2">''[[Saints Row 2]]''</ref>*

will show up as this:

[1]

Put this behind a sentence or an entire chapter of text.

  • = When you use this method, you can simply use <ref name="Saints Row 2" /> if you need to source to Saints Row 2 again.


Add the following code at the very bottom, to make the references show up there:

==References==
<references/>

This will appear like this:

ReferencesEdit

  1. Saints Row 2


When it's unknown where the information comes from, add the following template:

{{Fact}}

=

[reference?]

Read this through carefully. I'm pretty sure there will be questions about this, as I really have no idea how to explain things to people (which is a fact, I give very vague explanations). Ask them below, and I'll do my best to answer.
