using templates in citations and other linksEdit

I have gone through some of your recent edits and corrected the citations to the proper format that we have established for use here on Memory Beta. Please make sure to adhere to that in the future. If you're unsure of what I'm talking about, please have another look at the "Occupation of Bajor" page (especially its source code, and not just the plain text you see while reading the page) and especially how I altered the citation you provided to fit the correct format. Other paragraphs on that page can also serve as examples on how to cite from other types of sources than just comics, such as episodes and novels. Also, take a look around at how links to Federation starships are formatted to achieve italication of the ship's name or links to disambiguated pages, like "Brian (comic)". Lastly, I know that the way you have done it so far and the way we would like you to do it instead don't look much different from each other when reading the final page, but the templates do help save a few bytes everywhere they're used properly and they help set a unified standard for links. - Bell'Orso (talk) 22:49, December 11, 2017 (UTC)

(copied over to here from my own talk page, in case you fail to keep track of your edits) I'm assuming you are using the current standard skin for MB. (I am not, and therefor had to view a page as an unregistered user just to check how it looks.) On that skin, you'll notice a small button right next to the "edit" button. That smaller button will open a drop-down menu that has the option to "edit source". That's the one you'll want to use. Also, when commenting on talk pages or forum discussions, please remember to sign your posts like this: ~~~~. Thanks. - Bell'Orso (talk) 21:44, December 12, 2017 (UTC)
