Hi, newbie to forums and talks and whatnot, but could someone please make a way to cite this website in the most glorious way possible? I'm using your collective rationality in a (gasp!) college paper and they allowed me to use web sources. Those dumbasses. :)

What format? Chicago/Turabian? MLA? ASA? Also, which specific article? P-Foster Talk ""Santorum is the cream rising to the top."" 18:34, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
They probably wont let you cite RW. Any college worth going to wont let you cite a wiki as a source. Also, if the instructor didn't tell you the format to use, he's probably not a good instructor. If you just aren't sure, MLA is generally a safe bet for undergrad.--Logic and Empricism (talk) 04:23, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
That depends. Citing RW as a secondary source would be silly. Citing RW as a primary source in a study of the social dynamics of an online community, for example, would be totally appropriate.

RW has helped me on a variety of homework assignments on ID and evolution FWIW. Тycommunications wire 15:30, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
