Deletion of deprecated author names[edit]

Hello IFPNI Staff, please do not mark deprecated author names for deletion, before all links to that names have been corrected! E.G. Franz Josef Ivanovich Ruprecht has been deleted, although more than 150 pages still link to that page and were left with dead links. Please keep this page as a redirect, until all necessary changes have been made. Kind regards, Thiotrix (talk) 21:26, 21 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello! Let do these minor changes and links - and do not forget to eliminate barbarous and stupid names in WS. Anna Pavlova IFPNI Staff (talk) 04:42, 22 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also Elenora Tzolakovna Gabrieljan, it was deleted, although several pages still link to it. If you move a page to a new name, you are responsible to fix all links before asking for speedy deletion. Otherwise please leave the name as a redirect, even if wrongly spelled. --Thiotrix (talk) 08:09, 22 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
As for Gabrieljan, I saw that colleague Monster Iestyn quickly edited and added info and links. So, I left the matter at all. Sorry that you found some remained unedited links. I can see no tragedy if any erroneous links were overlooked while editing, other contributors or editors could edit and modify remained links. Since you contributed a lot on algal taxa of Ruprecht with no understanding of the barbarism of his used name, it would be very useful if you could edit Ruprecht's erroneous links. Frankly speaking, I can't see rationale to reinstate erroneous links in contrast to their editing; WS has still a lot of garbage - no sense to continue its keeping while editing is in process.

Hello, and if I may, I think the issue with Franz Josef Ivanovich Ruprecht is that, if you look at "What links here" in the left margin, there are many pages that link to Franz Josef Ivanovich Ruprecht. What would you say is more useful, a link that takes you to a non-barbarous spelling of his name via a (hidden to the end user) barbarous spelling of his name that redirects to this non-barbarous spelling of his name, or the replacement of the link that takes you to the non-barbarous spelling of his name with a dead link? For example, with "What links here", you can see that Rupr. takes you to Franz Josef Ivanovich Ruprecht. If you replaced that with Franz Josef Ruprecht, then Rupr. would stay functional even after the eventual deletion of Franz Josef Ivanovich Ruprecht, Maculosae tegmine lyncis (talk) 08:58, 22 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you! But Ivanovich is very commonly associated with Ruprecht, and we need a lot of time for edits by hands. If anyone know any automatic tools to correct? It is a pity to spend a lot of time for errors of previous editors, rather than to contribute new data. Anna Pavlova IFPNI Staff (talk) 09:23, 22 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree! I have put in place a temporary fix, but there are too many to change manually... (Similarly Oldfield Thomas stays at his non-full name, I guess because no-one can face going through by hand all 859 taxon names and changing the links!), Maculosae tegmine lyncis (talk) 09:27, 22 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
RLJ is magic in WS, who edited all Ruprecht's Ivanovich erroneous links. This is a miracle, really. Anna Pavlova IFPNI Staff (talk) 20:24, 22 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yurij Nikolaevich Gorbunov[edit]

Hello, I noticed that you requested the deletion of the page Yuriĭ Nikolaevich Gorbunov. While this name is mistransliterated (thanks for spotting that and for the correction!), that spelling is still used in the IPNI database. For that reason, I think that the redirect should be kept for the moment; a user might do a search with that particular spelling. I understand your request, but I don't think the redirect is "unnecessary", at least as long as IPNI uses that spelling. Best regards, Korg (talk) 09:03, 30 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

IPNI is already notified, and will change the spelling shortly. IFPNI Staff (talk) 09:58, 30 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, thank you! Korg (talk) 07:50, 3 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

IPNI standard form[edit]

Hello, I was wondering why you added the IPNI standard form in the biography of parasitologists like John Henry Steel or Jean-Jules Chauvrat, as they are not in the IPNI database: J.H.Steel, Chauvrat. Will they be registered some day? Thanks, Korg (talk) 23:49, 4 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, Korg. They are in AlgaeBase and bound to be added soon. I am new here, so I do not know how to link the Trypanosoma genus page here, you will find them there. Cheers! Capzeneis (talk) 06:01, 5 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
IPNI received regularly updates with new authors, so IPNI template is always used. They are not fast in edits, please be patient. Anna Pavlova IFPNI Staff (talk) 07:07, 5 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi, Capzeneis and Anna! Thank you, I see! So we deliver the information even before the reference site, that's great :-) All the best, Korg (talk) 11:15, 5 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Just to notice: these authors right now in the IPNI visible. Anna Pavlova IFPNI Staff (talk) 09:13, 21 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes I saw them in IPNI, I updated the Wikidata items. Best wishes and thanks for your work! Korg (talk) 09:27, 21 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Animalia NAME section[edit]

Hello. Please don't mix the format of Animalia species with the format of Plantae species when editing the Name section, like you did on Myxobolus rachmani which belong to the Animalia!

You formatted the Name section as:

  • Myxobolus rachmani Allamuratov, Dokl. Akad. Nauk Uzbeksk. SSR 1966(1): 58, fig. 1b (1966)

While the correct format for Animalia is:

Thanks, Mariusm (talk) 17:03, 8 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No problem. Although while the complete citation is available, it is easy for users to get more info about the protologue. Anna Pavlova IFPNI Staff (talk) 20:21, 13 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have edited the Myxobolus rachmani page (see this diff.) so that it now follows the Wikispecies standard format. All original information is retained. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 01:19, 17 November 2023 (UTC).Reply[reply]
