Description Justin Drake 2008-01-07 14:47:08 UTC
Hi there,

References on Wikipedia is a big deal, and currently (at least in my opinion), editing references eats out a lot of time from the Wikipedia editors.

I think one of the major reasons is that one cannot edit ALL references at once. By this I mean that the references are scattered all around the page, and one cannot find them all bunched up in a specific place.

I therefore propose that, when clicking 'edit' in the 'references' paragraph, instead of landing with just {{reflist}}, the editor will find all the references explicitly listed, making the job of editing references much easier.

Feedback on this proposal would be very much appreciated at
