How to add sources



It is compulsory to add official sources for ANY change or addition of information!

The new text has to be marked with a footnote.

Example:

new text{{C|1}}

This footnote is then referenced under "Sources" at the end of the article:

Example:

==Sources==

*{{C|1}}: [[Codex XY]], p. xx

Please note that it is absolutely compulsory to include pagenumbers (in the case of novels chapter numbers)!

If you are referencing different pages/ chapters from the same source the source itself is marked with a number, the individual pages or chapters by letters:

Example:

new text{{C|1: p. xy}} ... new text{{C|1: p. yz}}
==Sources==

*{{C|1}}: [[Codex XY]]:

In the case of novels, no pagenumbers should be given (they vary between translations and print runs). In this case chapternumbers are compulsory.

Example:

new text{{C|1: ch. xy}} ... new text{{C|1: ch. yz}}
==Sources==

*{{C|1}}: [[XY (Novel)]]:

Please first test this function in the Lexicanum:Immaterium.
