welcome/query re testcite/book code

Welcome Crosbie, nice to have you on board! Thanks also for your pic of IISS. A quick query re the testcitebook template code you set up - this seems to not be working on the Whitney Hart Shepardson and War and Peace Studies‎ profiles?

There were unfilled fields on the template showing. I was using the template as a placeholder for the reference templates I had used when I originally submitted the material to Wikipedia. I've reverted my edit. It occurs to me it might be useful to copy the citation templates over from Wikipedia, as these make referencing more convenient. I'm new here though, so perhaps this idea has already been discussed and rejected! - Crosbie Smith 16:35, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Ok thanks. Not sure re citation templates, will discuss, anything that makes referencing easier is always good. --Melissa Jones 16:47, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

referencing style

Hi Crosbie, thanks for your all interesting work and porting from wikipedia. Could you please doublecheck that your referencing follows our style as outlined on the Powerbase referencing page, eg for books, website articles etc etc and fix where necessary. . many thanks --Melissa Jones 16:37, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

eg Office of Military Government; John P Mascotte; Weatherhead Center for International Affairs' and Robert R. Bowie pages. Many thanks--Melissa Jones 13:19, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I introduced material from Wikipedia without regard to quality. I have reduced these to referenced stubs. If these are too short to merit inclusion, do please delete them. I don't think I am able to do that. In the case of John P Mascotte, this is existing unreferenced material taken from the Aspen Institute article. I split it out as it did not have direct bearing on that subject. I'm not sure I can reference the existing content, added by another user, but I did not wish to simply delete another writer's work. - Crosbie 14:07, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Ok thanks very much for that.--Melissa Jones 18:28, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
