Hi. You raise a couple of topics:

  • You seem to be conversant with templates, which is a skill we could really use but it seems very late to introduce citations. These probably would have been a good idea in the first place but I expect the founding fathers thought they would be unnecessary complication. Even when I joined we assumed that contributors would be knowledgeable and reliable and, anyway, someone would yell at them for an error. By now, I don't know who's going to go back and add citations to four thousand pages. A more pressing problem is that the infobox templates we have no longer work properly and no one seems to be able to fix them. (See examples of Template:Character Data (after "N"), Template:Building Data and others. If you could get those to work as they used to, without the vacant fields full of stray code, we'd be ever so grateful.
  • Woddeley's Occult Primer‎: the page is "so short and empty" because it's a minor mention and it seems to be explained adequately. Even as an addition to Discworld MUD the whole list would be too long and better left as a link. Sheer volume does not recommend an article. - Old Dickens (talk) 00:10, 4 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Oh yes: the wiki doesn't send e-mail when you get a message, there's just a notification when you sign in (as you may have seen, now). - --Old Dickens (talk) 00:16, 4 August 2018 (UTC)
