Can I / should I provide footnotes, and if so how?
For example, 'his published non-fiction' - should I link to the name of a book?
- Hello, Braka. If you think footnotes would improve the article, you can certainly include them with the wiki's Reference tags. I've put a fake reference in the article which should help you can understand the format, and you can fill in the details.

- Hi. Yes, I am the subject, as you guessed. I use 'Braka' because at least one other person (not furry) has used 'Lupercal', though that is my preferred nick. I'm sorry - I'm a dumbass, but I don't seem able to work out how to add footnotes, even after your example. I experimented, and nothing happened. If you want to do it for me, the (1) reference to non-fiction should lead to 'Figuring Animals' (Palgrave MacMillan). It is on amazon.com and you can link to that page if you like.
If we are working with more than one footnote or <reference> (I assume), how do we do that, or is the numbering simply automatic, corresponding to the successive <reference> tags in the body of the article?
I can also provide links to my homepage, blog, etc, but am uncertain how to do so.

- I've put a link in the reference, to the title you mentioned. If you want to add a second reference, just copy the text between "ref" and "/ref" (with the pointed brtackets) and modify it as required. The numbering of references at the bottom of the page is taken care of automatically.
- If you want to include links to relevant pages, such as your homepage or LiveJournal, you can place them in the "External links" section on the page.
