Welcome to Wikispecies!

Hello, and welcome to Wikispecies! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages you might like to see:

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. Please also read the Wikispecies policy What Wikispecies is not. If you need help, ask me on my talk page, or in the Village Pump. Again, welcome! OhanaUnitedTalk page 17:13, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Thank you! Korg 17:53, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Invitation to join the Ten Year Society[edit]

Ten Year Society.svg

Dear Korg,

I'd like to extend a cordial invitation to you to join the Ten Year Society, an informal group for editors who've been participating in the Wikispecies project for ten years or more. I believe you made your first edit on WS in 2005-08-29.

Best regards,

Hello Dan, thank you! I made my first edit on Wikispecies a long time ago but I really started contributing in July of this year, so I feel relatively new here :) I may update my user page some day. Korg (talk) 21:17, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Great job[edit]

Hey, thanks for doing a great job in correcting my confusing between Albert-Auguste Fauvel and Charles Adolphe Albert Fauvel. Mariusm (talk) 13:32, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello Marius, you're welcome! I think that all issues have been sorted out, at least on Wikispecies. Best regards, Korg (talk) 14:15, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Default sort[edit]

Thanks for correcting my category confusion. However, {{DEFAULTSORT:}} belongs on author page instead of taxa page. Neferkheperre (talk) 18:38, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

@Neferkheperre: You're welcome! I used to create taxa categories without DEFAULTSORT, but I've seen several users such as Franz Xaver [1] and Orchi [2] that are adding it, and I thought it wasn't a bad idea since there is a table of contents in Category:Taxa by author. The vast majority of these taxa categories aren't sorted, so adding it (or not) does not seem to make a difference. Now I wonder if and how Category:Taxa by author is really used. Korg (talk) 19:34, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
Without {{DEFAULTSORT:}} these Author taxa categories get sorted in Category:Taxa by author according to first name. In my opinion, it is preferable to get them sorted according to family name. Should it really be better, that e.g. Category:Carl Friedrich Philipp von Martius taxa is sorted somewhere among the Carls, or Category:William Jackson Hooker taxa among the Williams? --Franz Xaver (talk) 20:11, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
Somehow or other it escaped my brain that it might be necessary to use {{DEFAULTSORT:}} for Author taxa categories. Wish I had figured that out about 2000 Author pages ago. I shall add them from now on. Neferkheperre (talk) 12:40, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

Anthene merioli aridicola[edit]

Korg,


The author of the subspecies Anthene merioli aridicola is indeed Alan J. Gardiner. The author is already change in the wright author name. Thanks for your attention. PeterR (talk) 11:37, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

Sharon Jansa[edit]

Hi! Would you agree to move Sharon Jansa to Sharon A. Jansa? Other authors, Robert S. Voss, Darrin P. Lunde, Alfred L. Gardner, have full name style in title, it would be interesting to maintain a standard. Thanks, Burmeister (talk) 18:31, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

@Burmeister: Hi! No problem, I've moved the article to Sharon A. Jansa. I initially chose to name the page "Sharon Jansa" to follow the name written on her various profiles, but I agree it is interesting to have consistency here. Feel free to move other pages as you please! Best regards, Korg (talk) 19:43, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
Thanks again. Burmeister (talk) 19:47, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
