Suggested topicsEdit

  • I'm working on a project which aims to improve automatic citations (where you input a URL, and it generates a templated citation with title, date, publication, author etc.) in both the VisualEditor and source editor. Are there sites that you commonly use for referencing where this doesn't currently work well? We're collecting some in this spreadsheet. the wub "?!" 13:33, 26 May 2022 (UTC)
