Terrible time editing lately. Looked back and saw I'd done a few really sloppy jobs recently.

I need help desprately. I don't quite understand how references work (and I can't find anything). Here is my problem:

I know that to cite something already on the list, you just do < ref>whatever it is</ref >, but for the life of me, when I try to add a new resource to the list, the entire thing blows up in my face and has that angry red script. I'm desprate for some help guys! I want to be a responsible editor that no one has to sweep up after! How to I add a new source to the source list? Whenever I am editing (always in source mode; it's good practice), the source list always shows up as { { reflist } }. How in the world do you edit that? I don't understand how coding works, so really... for practical editing purposes; how do I add resources and source them properly?

Thanks for reading this, and even if you just send me a link explaining how this works on wikias, I'd be ever so grateful!
