Is there a way to add superscript (the little raised numbers) in threads or posts for the purpose of citations? If there isn't, is there anyway to
request it (maybe "[c][/c]" tags)?
I'm used to adding citations in my writings and essays with those little numbers, called a superscript. It would seem that people are less likely to
follow up on information when the citations are just a bunch of links on the bottom of the post, without reference to what the links refer to. It also
seems to distract from the information presented in the thread, when you are constantly adding sourced links after everything you back up through
If there isn't already a way to do it, I believe that it would greatly benefit the content of this site and make it much easier for authors to add
informative and efficient contributions. With the ability to add citations to our posts with superscript numbers (just like wikipedia), it would also
allow the reader to further explore whatever may interest them, without distracting from the intended message of the post or thread. It also cleans up
the post/thread and makes it much more readable, not to mention informative and efficient.
