References on the wiki (please ignore this now)

Can I add my own things as references on the wiki?
Okay. Lemme clear that up..
On the wiki, there are little links to references that are hinted throughout the page, such as;
"This has been suggested many times[1][2][3]; but the Scratch Team has made no comment on it[4].“
However, the numbers in brackets are smaller and they're links to the bottom of the page that highlights the note; there's also a relevant link, such as an example of that happening or the ST saying something about a certain topic.
Okay, I can't really explain clearly. Just go to a wiki page, you'll probably find at least one!
Anyway, I would like to add a reference to the ”signature“ page. There's something on it that says ”Sometimes New Scratchers might think signatures are actually text manually entered by the user at the end of their post.“
I've seen a user reply to my signature before because they thought it was stuff I actually entered at the end of my post, can I add this reference?
I also remember the wiki saying that sometimes users might make ”fake signatures“. I've seen a user do this as well, can I add this as a reference? Or are these ”naming and shaming“/”calling out“/”putting them on the spot"?
(A little unrelated, but how do I add a reference? )

Does this belong in Suggestions? Should it be in Questions instead?

Gone.

Not even, they should have asked this on the community portal.

For the OP though, I have given you an answer here.

I used to be active on the forums, but I have mostly moved past Scratch. I still do check my Scratch messages, so if you'd like to talk to me, just pop a comment on my profile. My main project on Scratch was Cookie Clicker, but I've also recently made a project called Snake Snake, a game based off of Snake, but there are two snakes, and you can play either singleplayer or multiplayer.

Oh! Thanks!

The code is: <ref>insert-url-here-</ref>

Replace “insert-url-here” with an actual url.

Dangit, 60 second rule. I did nothing to you. I already warned you not to do this again, but you disobeyed me. Well, guess it's revenge…

By the way, the main question was if adding a reference showing an example of something like a user thinking that signatures are manually added text is considered “naming and shaming” or “calling out”.

Since this post is offtopic at this point considering it's in the wrong forum (it was a question), I think I'll ask for this to be closed.
