Because this Wiki is editable by anyone, and in many cases anonymous, we don't aim to provide original information, but instead to collect and summarise from reliable sources. For that reason, adding references to claims or statements in an article helps a great deal.

To add a footnote, put the extra info in <ref></ref> tags, for example:

He was born April 11th, 1988<ref>http://www.mypsace.com/example - His myspace</ref>, and is from...
He mentioned in an interview that he injured his ankle
during his run<ref>BBC Three World Freerun Championships coverage</ref>.

If the code above went straight over your head, just paste in a link to the reference and type REFERENCE and someone will add in the code for you

NOTE if you get a big red error message saying "<references/> is missing", paste this at the bottom of the article:

==Notes==
