Description William Allen Simpson 2006-06-17 19:12:50 UTC
Reference lists are constantly being proposed for deletion. They don't 
seem to be well-liked in "(main)", nor in "Wikipedia:" (largely 
administrative), and would be warping "Portal:" from the current usage. 
Yet, anybody with familiarity of an actual paper encyclopedia knows 
that reference lists are encyclopedic. The solution over at Wiktionary 
appears to be adding an Appendix: namespace for reference lists, about 
6 months ago.

Brought here because I informed the user that this is where such requests need
to go, not because I endorse it or suggested it in the first place.
Comment 2 Leon Weber 2006-06-17 20:06:11 UTC
I'd say that you first should ask the community about that, no?
Comment 3 William Allen Simpson 2006-06-25 14:28:29 UTC
It was brought here from the Village Pump, where the few comments were uniformly
positive, and taken there from discussion on various Wikipedia talk pages where
it had been originally proposed, noting the previous Wiktionary solution.
Comment 4 River Tarnell 2007-05-06 06:10:59 UTC
i see discussion here:
Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)/Archive#Appendix_namespace where people were 
opposed to creating this namespace.  was it discussed somewhere else?
Comment 5 River Tarnell 2007-05-08 14:20:55 UTC
closing this as there's no clear consensus from the community.
