Up until now, we've largely avoided putting sources in articles. It's pretty obvious why, since the list of sources for an episode would included dozens of references to itself, which would be pointless and odd. However, given that Wikis are supposed to pride themselves on accountability and we're starting to include more and more real-life articles on the actors, filming locations and so on, we need to start looking more seriously at sources. To help, I have a colossal list of sources on the Production timeline page. That information can be used on some of the actors' pages (for example, noting when they were hired by HBO and where it was announced). We also probably start needing to use sources for the 'in the books' sections (I recommend using the chapter summaries on the Wiki of Ice and Fire as sources and links to help, as well as the 'So Spake Martin' section on's Citadel page) to back up some of the info there. Tedious, I know, but I think we've reached the point where it's going to be a necessary evil.--Werthead 20:39, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
