:I asked the same question on [[Minecraft Wiki talk:Style guide#References]], but since no one answered, I went with replacing every ref tag I find while editing with {{tl|reflist}} on the grounds of consistency to match the articles that need to use it, since they don't have the option. <code class="nowrap">—[[User:Kanegasi|<span title="User Page">Kanegasi</span>]] [[User talk:Kanegasi|<span title="Talk">☺</span>]][[User:Kanegasi/edit count|<span title="Contribs">C</span>]]</code> 07:32, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

I asked the same question on Minecraft Wiki talk:Style guide#References, but since no one answered, I went with replacing every ref tag I find while editing with {{reflist}} on the grounds of consistency to match the articles that need to use it, since they don't have the option.
