The Babylon Project


This page is an official policy of The Babylon Project wiki. Any changes to the policy should be discussed at its discussion page

Because this wiki covers a well-defined and limited range (that of the fictional universe of Babylon 5), and has as one of its goals comprehensive coverage of that, we can avail ourselves of the luxury of very high standards for citation. See The Babylon Project:Canon for acceptable sources.

Citations should be made using Template:Reflist.

The article should contain the reference inline, but surrounded by reference tags as below:

Beta 12 was Centauri designation for the location
of Earth's solar system. <ref>"[[Midnight on the Firing Line]]</ref>

The above sample code is the same as the first example below.

A "References" section should appear at the bottom of the article. Put the "reflist" template below the "References" heading.

Example Content[]
