References formattingEdit

Hi and thanks for your work. May I ask you to avoid writing "Ibid." in the references? Indeed, if someone else adds another ref later, then the Ibid. will refer to the above ref and it will be quite messy. Could you also avoid abbreviating the references too much? I mean you should write the full names ("Polybius", "Livy", "Suetonius, Tiberius", etc. [no need to add the title when the author has left only one title, so just "Livy"]), otherwise the average reader may be confused by this (it was my case when I started reading on ancient history). For modern works, add the volume as well (so it should be "Broughton, vol. II, p. 185") and put the full reference in a bibliography section. Cf. for example this article. P Aculeius has made an extensive bibliography from where you can directly copy/paste long modern titles. Wikipedia is not an academic work, so formatting is a bit different.T8612 (talk) 12:52, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice! I'll go back and do that now 14:07, 16 August 2018 (GMT)
