Welcome to Wikispecies![edit]

Hello, and a belated welcome to Wikispecies! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you are enjoying being here. Here are some pages you might not yet have found:

If you have named a taxon, then it is likely that there is (or will be) a Wikispecies page about you, and other pages about your published papers. Please see our advice and guidance for taxon authors.

If you have useful images to contribute to Wikispecies, please upload them at the Wikimedia Commons. This is also true for video or audio files containing bird songs, whale vocalization, etc.

Please sign your comments on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your username (if you're logged in) and the date. If you need help, ask me on my talk page, or in the Village Pump. Again, welcome!

Translation administrator?[edit]

Hello again DannyS712, and thanks for your many localization-related edits to our community. I would be happy to promote you to translation admin, if you feel your efforts would benefit from it? I know you've only made just over 100 edits to Wikispecies so far, but they're all good and your excellent cross-wiki track record as sysop, patroller, property creator and translation admin etc. speaks for itself.

If you think that's a good idea a simple "yes" here will suffice (per policy we don't need to vote about translation admins, contrary to bureaucrat- and adminship), but for the sake of formality it's best if instead you make a short, formal request about it at Requests for translation adminship.

Kind regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 03:36, 24 October 2019 (UTC).

@Tommy Kronkvist: I wasn't planning to ask, but it could be useful;  Doing… --DannyS712 (talk) 03:37, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
@Tommy Kronkvist:  Done, see Wikispecies:Translation administrators#DannyS712 (talk • contribs • block • all projects) --DannyS712 (talk) 03:41, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
Yep, I saw. I'll let it sit for a while so other admins and crats have a chance to catch up. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 03:45, 24 October 2019 (UTC).
@Tommy Kronkvist: its been 5 days - can you take a look? Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 16:31, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
All done. Please see the User rights log for your user account. Congrats and regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 16:55, 29 October 2019 (UTC).
thanks - I've taken a crack at the (small) backlog --DannyS712 (talk) 16:56, 29 October 2019 (UTC)

Deletion request[edit]

Hi. I saw your request to delete Wikispecies:Autopatrollers/zh. I'ld be happy to go ahead and delete the page, however first I would like to know more about what's wrong with it? Should indeed the entire page be deleted (per your request) or does it only need some editing? –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 11:16, 23 November 2019 (UTC).

@Tommy Kronkvist: unfortunately, tagging translation units for deletion isn't the clearest process. I only suggested that Translations:Wikispecies:Autopatrollers/13/zh be deleted, not the whole page. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 22:11, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
 Done. Thanks for clarifying. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 17:25, 24 November 2019 (UTC).

Thanks --DannyS712 (talk) 03:33, 30 November 2019 (UTC)


Thanks for the huge undertaking of adding the {{int:}} magic word to many of the "Find all Wikispecies pages which cite this reference" text string in reference templates. There are still quite a lot to go since we currently have a total of 67,898 reference templates, but getting the job started is a good thing... :-)
Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 03:47, 2 January 2020 (UTC).

Its just a start, I was going slow to avoid making it appear that it was an unauthorized bot. Its just a simple mass replacement, but I'll continue (I pre-approve a bunch of edits and then they save over time to avoid flooding recent changes to much) --DannyS712 (talk) 04:04, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
@Tommy Kronkvist: running now. I've scanned and approved the edits for the remaining templates that start with "A" - ~1200. --DannyS712 (talk) 04:07, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
Sounds good, and as far as I can tell looks good too. Hopefully you check for existing {{int:}} tags since reference templates created after 16:29 (UTC), 27 December 2019‎ already have them included? Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 04:15, 2 January 2020 (UTC).
@Tommy Kronkvist: its just replacing
[[Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:{{BASEPAGENAME}}|Find all Wikispecies pages which cite this reference]]


[[Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:{{BASEPAGENAME}}|{{int:Find all Wikispecies pages which cite this reference}}]]

so checking shouldn't be an issue - it'll only match the full link, not just the piped text. --DannyS712 (talk) 04:21, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

I thought so considering you're an experienced MediaWiki user, but had to ask. :-) Anyway, so no problem then. It's a good thing we get this done. Over and out, for now. Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 04:31, 2 January 2020 (UTC).
Glad I can help. --DannyS712 (talk) 04:32, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
@Tommy Kronkvist: done with A-E --DannyS712 (talk) 20:25, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
👍 Like Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 21:18, 2 January 2020 (UTC).
@Tommy Kronkvist: now that Rosibot knows about the new internationalized message and is replacing it, I'm going to stop. --DannyS712 (talk) 01:49, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
Understandable. Thanks for chipping in with your time and skill to get the work done. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 18:46, 6 January 2020 (UTC).
No problem. Next project: links to disambiguation pages --DannyS712 (talk) 18:47, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

Bot approval[edit]

DannyS712 bot is now approved and has been granted bot status. Regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 09:03, 14 January 2020 (UTC).

Thanks --DannyS712 (talk) 16:56, 14 January 2020 (UTC)
@Tommy Kronkvist:  Done, feel free to remove the flag. It missed some ISBNs that were in a different format that I'll fix manually. --DannyS712 (talk) 09:29, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
Category:Pages using ISBN magic links is now empty!!! --DannyS712 (talk) 10:01, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
That was quick – thanks! Flag removed. Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 16:20, 15 January 2020 (UTC).

Revert Potamotrygon orbignyi[edit]

Can you please explain the revert on Potamotrygon orbignyi? Castelanau is clearly the author fishbase.--Earwig (talk) 08:08, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

I misclicked, and reverted myself immediately --DannyS712 (talk) 08:09, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

Caught in mid edits[edit]

Hello. Your work on Glochidion has found me in the middle of a major review and update of Phyllanthaceae. No harm done I guess, but just be a little bit more careful. Cheers Andyboorman (talk) 07:49, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean - I've never edited Special:PageHistory/Glochidion --DannyS712 (talk) 07:50, 3 April 2020 (UTC)
