Description:
Hi there,

References on Wikipedia is a big deal, and currently (at least in my opinion), editing references eats out a lot of time from the Wikipedia editors.

I think one of the major reasons is that one cannot edit ALL references at once. By this I mean that the references are scattered all around the page, and one cannot find them all bunched up in a specific place.

I therefore propose that, when clicking 'edit' in the 'references' paragraph, instead of landing with just {{reflist}}, the editor will find all the references explicitly listed, making the job of editing references much easier.

Feedback on this proposal would be very much appreciated at jfd31@cam.ac.uk

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
