Citing Sources

I'm a bit confused on this for this wiki. It seems things are a lot more lax here than on Wikipedia when it comes to this. I have sources for this article, but I don't want the article to look like a "Sentence.[1][2][3] Sentence.[3][5] Sentence.[2][4][5]" etc. like some Wikipedia articles look (It seems sloppy to me). I've seen some articles on Wikipedia that do this differently, they just list the sources citied at the bottom of the article sans the links to them throughout the article. This is the method I would rather use if it is required that I do cite sources. Nuxius 07:43, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

US$0.02:  There are many different levels of intensity in scholarship/journalism, and yes, Wikipedia's is higher than the Doom Wiki's.   :>     The point of the bibliography is not to show which idea came from which source, but to acknowledge that we didn't do all the work ourselves, and to allow a reader (if they have time and are interested) to look at the original material and draw their own conclusions.
You only have to cite sources you actually used.  Whatever you saw yourself during playtesting (or in an editor) can just be added in without annotation. 
Wikipedia articles are formatted inconsistently because they only decided within the last year or two to use inline citations.  It will take a while to change every article.    Ryan W 04:14, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, that cleared it up quite a bit for me. I should be good to go then, since I only had to look for info for the Japanese version, and I got most of that from Kikko, whose videos I have already linked to in the article. Nuxius 09:54, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
