I was thinking of adding some kind of template like the how to obtain on LoH yes. I have an Idea to encourage content editing on more than just references. Simple links like "Add reference", "Add link", "Add ______", or something maybe link that, which is like a bulleted list. And if the reference or link or what have you exists then it displays a fancy box of some kind instead.
I am not worried about how it effects ad placement. We can work around them, place different units, etc. That is a very solvable problem that does not have to be worried about.
Tom will do the references, he said he would. We should make sure to give him all the tools to do it, and come to some kind of agreement as well as how it will be done.
More on my idea:
So my idea is that links would appear Like this
Then if say there was a reference it would display a Template:SubA or similar template with the content of [[page/reference]]. And then the list of content to add would only display:
It would only display those 2 because the SubA template has an edit link on it.
