Now hang on, Reedy... will it also check for {{Reflist}} too, or at least a == References == section? Xclamation point 20:23, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
At the moment it check for sections References, Footnotes and Notes (this can be expanded). The bot also checks or these templates: Reflist, Refs, FootnotesSmall, Reference, Ref-list, Reference_list, References-small, Reflink, Footnotes and FootnotesSmall (Again can be expanded). ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 20:32, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Link. 30 Edits completed. I need to change ti to make sure that it only looks for pages in the article name space but other than that everything to me looks ok. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 20:47, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
The bot will now only look for articles in the main name space. Can I have another short trial? ·Add§hore·Talk/Cont 18:03, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

What's the reason for not using {{reflist}}? I've been told but it didn't make much sense. BJTalk 03:45, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
It could use {{reflist}} just its set to use <references /> instead ~~
 Approved.
