Citing Particular Versions of a WP Page [23 June 2011]

WP is too soft a source to really worry about "which" version of a page was consulted. In fact, I think it would be more confusing to have a link automatically jump to an older version of a WP page than is current. For research built on WP content - you're not going to be trying to reverse-engineer the thought process of the prior researcher - you'll just update/change things to be consistent.

If you really wanted to know what exactly what the page form was when consulted, you can figure that out. Determine when the citation was added to WR, then use that date to examine the revision history of the originating WP page. I doubt that will ever happen though.--jrm03063 14:41, 23 June 2011 (EDT)
