Um, can someone give me a guide to using the ref tags (<ref> </ref> {{citations}})? I still don't know how to use them and what are the "ref name"s??  Clarent Caliburn Dissicon ff13 Lig3.png 20:17, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, so what's the <ref name> and </references> thing?  Clarent Caliburn Dissicon ff13 Lig3.png 00:22, October 30, 2011 (UTC)

Dunno about </references> but ref name is used when a reference is used more than once on a page; e.g. A third reference could be Sephiroth is a one-winged angel<ref name="seph">. Now, because I've made the ref name of "Sephiroth is Cloud's enemy" "seph" and the OWA ref name "seph" they go to the same place, and I only had to type the name of Sephiroth's page once.

"<references/>" and "{{citations}}" are interchangeable. However, since we have a specially designed template, we should use {{Reflist}}. 23:00, October 30, 2011 (UTC)

Thankyou all for the information! Clarent Caliburn Dissicon ff13 Lig3.png 03:04, October 31, 2011 (UTC)
