I thought it would be a reasonable idea to add citation templates from Wikipedia, so that people can easily and consistently add references to articles. Unfortunately, the templates have turned out to be an arcane, tangled mess. On top of that, there are some problems with the wiki code somewhere which are breaking certain things, including references ("ref" tags) and, I suspect, some of the templates I tried to add. So I've given up for now. I don't have the expertise or the permissions to find or solve that problem. But that's why there's a cluster of broken templates I've added today. Unfortunately I can't delete things. -- ShimminBeg 06:19, 12 July 2012 (EDT)

I have attempted the same thing with the "Infobox short story" template when I spotted a link to it on The Dunwich Horror. Same problem - I think some underlying code is just not there in this wiki, and so complex templates won't work. So another few templates have appeared that won't work either. -- ShimminBeg 08:41, 3 December 2012 (EST)
