"References list" should be an item in the Cite menu, not in the Insert one
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Per feedback at mw.org:
ManosHacker writes,
"References list" is inserted, out of new users' logic or expectation, by a well hidden button, away from "Cite" button.

"References list" insertion button could be appearing below "Cite" button, while hovering over it. A tooltip would be much appreciated.

Why? It's not a citation.

Because it has to do with adding citations, I guess.

At the moment with Citoid enabled there is no cite menu, just a button. It's certainly going to be used a lot less than Cite (only on page creation) so doesn't make sense to give it the same prominence.
