Error on page

I cannot correct the error on this page:

Cite error: <ref> tags exist, but no <references/> tag was found

I checked at the author's main page and that looks ok to me but that code is somehow brought here.

As I am here, the livejournal link on the author's page no longer works; has he got a new blog?--Fleanetha (talk) 05:28, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Why include the full article for the author in the Category page? Might it not be enough just to include a link to it? --Brandingopportunity (talk) 05:44, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Adding information to category pages pre dates my involvement [User:Brandingopportunity|Brandingopportunity]]: there are many author pages that do this. Personally I agree - duplicating the data seems unnecessary but someone chose to do this for a reason and this error is not seen on other author category pages I checked. --Fleanetha (talk) 05:55, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
I've fixed the cite error (the referencs tag on the author page was inside "noinclude" tags, so wasn't pulling over here.) However, I also wonder why the bios include this data. Normally there's no harm - an update on the bio page doesn't require an update here. But, we have seen the downside exhibited here. --FoiledAgain (talk) 10:20, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Thank you FoiledAgain--Fleanetha (talk) 11:36, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
The transclusion of articles into category pages was something we did in the wiki's earliest days, but that became too much of a hassle to avoid just this sort of problem whenever we made updates to the base articles, so we largely abandoned the practice, favoring simple links to the main article as the contents of the category page itself. —Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 16:26, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
