Mod Hat — On links and appearances Part of the problem is just that most members are accustomed to putting as little effort into their posts as possible. Then again, given that people have been reluctant to provide source citation, it's hard to imagine they will suddenly want to start citing Sciforums posts. (Personally, this is a weakness of mine insofar as I rarely if ever write works cited for posts and threads at Sciforums.) One simple solution would be to provide some sort of marker to a previous post (↑); in this case, that marker is u2191, but others will work, too. Also, Unicode users should be advised to execute in a text editor, or in the simple text version of the inline editor. Attempting Unicode in the rich-text editor will also execute an underline function. Those inclined to Unicode markers might try the Unicode-Table arrow set ⟳. (That "Clockwise Gapped Circle Arrow" is u27F3.) Sorry, I can't help Windows users with the proprietary codes; I don't use Windows unless I absolutely must. Mac users can play around with their option codes (CTRL+OPEN+keystroke). Touchscreen keyboards have some built in character options; just hold the key until the menu pops up, and there will probably be something useful in there. Or people can just endnote their links. But pretty much any American, at least, high school age or older ought to have some idea of how to write in-line citations and works cited notes. (We generally teach MLA in middle and high schools, though colleges and universities often use others. My friends at Stanford used Chicago-Turabian, many institutions prefer Harvard, and there are actually occasions when APA is not simply useful, but specifically preferred. We're not so fussy, here, but yeah, most of us should have learned this stuff at one point or another.) We now return you to this thread's originally-scheduled topic. Thank you.
