comment Adding links as foot notes
@vigamage there isn't a single universal style. Your supervisor asked for citations so use citations; that others use URLs really isn't germane unless you're trying to change your university's conventions. I don't think you want to do that.

comment How does one cite an interview conducted in sign language (ASL) using MLA format?
How would you have her cite it if she were interviewing them in English? Is a record of the conversation being made (like a recording or transcript), or is she just working from notes and memory?

comment How can I rewrite the sentence for technical writing style
Welcome to Writers. Rephrasing requests are off-topic here (see the links in the on-hold notice), but it's also not clear what you mean by "technical writing style". There's not just one style; it varies by type of writing and by audience.

comment Diagram wider than text width
I've definitely seen diagrams that extend into the margins in technical books (not specifically math). How close to the edges are you talking about? (Mind the gutter created by the binding, assuming you mean a physical book.)

comment The “destroy a day's work every nth day” method of improving one's writing - sensible?
Did you see a suggestion to do this somewhere, or is this your own idea? If you've heard it from somebody else, knowing more about the context of the suggestion might help. (It sounds pretty surprising to me; in particular, if you know that today's work is going into the bin, are you really going to work hard on it?)

comment How to handle writing a romantic subplot when the main plot is very different?
I briefly (<15 seconds) locked and then unlocked this post. It had nothing to do with the merits of the post; it was for science. (I needed a question with an active bounty to test something.) Sorry for any disruption, and please let me know if anything funky happened.
