Template:CoF[edit]

How to find id ? I start from this page, by genus or species name (e.g. Glyphis and http link is the same: http://researcharchive.calacademy.org/research/Ichthyology/catalog/fishcatmain.asp. There is no id in address. Can you help? Ark (talk) 18:03, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

That is a good question, and I think I'll put a note on the template page about it. I should have realized from talking with MKOliver on the subject that it might cause a problem for people who aren't as used to the situation as he and I are. I haven't found a way to get these directly from Catalog of Fishes, so I get them by accessing the link to Catalog of Fishes from FishBase. So for Glyphis , I search "Glyphis" in FishBase, then go to one of the species pages in Glyphis (I used Glyphis glyphis this time), then click on the "gen" link at top right where it says "Catalog of Fishes (gen, sp)" and then get the id out of the url bar when it brings up the Catalog of Fishes record. For Glyphis, the genid is 4045. I know this way is complex, but it's the best there is for now. If you search for "Glyphis" using the Catalog of Fishes search function, you get all the genus records related to Glyphis instead of just the one for Glyphis itself. Koumz (talk) 19:34, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
Thank you :) Ark (talk) 14:57, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Further info[edit]

After working with this setup some more, I have a bit more info to share. The method described above is still the most efficient way I know of to get the ID numbers, HOWEVER, occasionally FishBase will link incorrectly (i.e. to the wrong authorship for a particular genus name if the genus name has been used by several different authors, of which, of course, only one is valid) or not in this way at all (as for what it considers junior synonyms, like Solenostomus paegnius). When this happens, there are two approaches to try. The first is to go to the FishBase synonym detail page for the synonym (via the synonyms list from the main page for the fish) and get ID numbers from the links there (this is how I got Solenostomus paegnius). If this doesn't work or doesn't apply (as it sometimes won't, especially for genus records), then one resorts to the second approach, which is brute force (trial and error with the URL bar), but there are patterns one can use for genus records to make it easier than just needle in a haystack. The patterns (clues) are: 1) All of the oldest (pre-1913 or so) genus names seem to be mostly grouped by reference (so all the genera from Systema Naturae are in a bunch with consecutive ID numbers), so search for all the genera with that reference number, then link to a valid one (or several) from FishBase and use that as a guide for which other numbers to try. They also go roughly from earliest to latest. 2) The genus names between about 1913 and about 1965 seem to be listed more or less alphabetically between IDs 5800 and 8100 (alphabetically by first letter, reverse alphabetically within each first letter). 3) After that, it's mixed. The common reference idea seems to be useful, though. Koumz (talk) 00:04, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for all your work with the CoF templates. I agree there is no easier way (that I know of, anyway) than via FishBase to find the needed CoF ID numbers (but how do the FishBase folks find them? Brute force? or maybe they got the data in bulk from Eschmeyer's FishBase systems guy?) - MKOliver (talk) 02:35, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
Like you, I think it's likely that they got it directly in bulk from the CAS people (even a patient person like myself can't imagine someone doing all those thousands of species records by hand, it would take forever). I thought very briefly about whether we could ask them for such a data dump myself, but a) I do not know how they view us as a site and b) I personally have no credentials at all with which to start that discussion even if they don't have a dim view of us. Koumz (talk) 02:55, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Taxon Authorities[edit]

Hi, my idea with linking from author name to taxon authority page was to standardise it so that the simple intials plus surname will always link to the relevant taxon authority page. This makes certain things easier. You have changed that on a reference template, I see, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but could be, so please be aware that there was a reason for the way it was, thanks Stho002 (talk) 06:58, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

The main thing I was interested in there was just getting the two separate pages for that author combined. I don't really care which version of the name is used, just so that there aren't two pages for the same person. I'll switch the template back since that doesn't really make a difference to me. Koumz (talk) 07:04, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

re: Block[edit]

Thank YOU for this fight :) Next time you can try on my page. Usually I start at this time. Ark (talk) 16:30, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Done, I think. Ark (talk) 17:53, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Monanchora arbuscula[edit]

Thanks. I couldn't make out the spelling of Echinostylinos with certainty in the copy I had access to. --EncycloPetey (talk) 01:00, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Proposal[edit]

It's time to request, don't you think? Ark (talk) 17:47, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Subgenera[edit]

Just to let you know that although we used to do so, we no longer include subgenus in the species page name, so we no longer use template sgsp, but use sgsps instead ... Stho002 (talk) 21:36, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

There appears to be ongoing disagreement on whether the subgenus should be included in the page name or not, and I will stay out of that as much as possible, since both positions have at least some logic, and anyway it mostly concerns entomology and I don't work in that area much except as a surrogate (my bot work). I will not create pages with the subgenus in the page name, but also will not alter those created that way by others (except as necessary to resolve orphan situations), in order to try to avoid becoming part of any drama. Koumz (talk) 14:49, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Genus/species groups[edit]

Please ignore genus/species groups! Do NOT create pages for them! Thanks ... Stho002 (talk) 00:10, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

yes, please just ignore such pages, and we'll get rid of them at some stage ... Stho002 (talk) 00:46, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Admin and bot[edit]

Congratulations on becoming an admin on Wikispecies. I have also approved your bot request and currently waiting for you to create the bot account so I can grant the bot account a bot flag. Please let me know when the bot account is created. OhanaUnitedTalk page 19:57, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Bot granted bot status. Please begin using the bot account for page creation. As for mass deletion, in Meta they have a flood flag (similar to bot flag) where admins can temporary grant themselves to avoid flushing the recent changes page with large numbers of deletions. However, the flood flag is not available elsewhere. OhanaUnitedTalk page 18:34, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Onthophagus[edit]

So very close now ... can we finish it?Stho002 (talk) 02:32, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

OK, I'll finish off...many thanks for your help with this...Stho002 (talk) 02:36, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

author/date in parentheses[edit]

One thing you need to know is that author/date only goes in parentheses if the species is no longer placed in the original genus in which it was first described Stho002 (talk) 06:43, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

yes, other editors will have done silly things like that, so it pays to keep your eyes peeled! Stho002 (talk) 07:00, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Agrilus[edit]

before u start, please tell me the 2 most frequent author/date combinations, so I can give you the reference citations to include on the pages ...Stho002 (talk) 21:59, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

unfortunately, Obenberger published multiple papers in the same year, so no easy way to associate a name with the appropriate publication...so, u might as well go ahead and do the Obenberger species in the same way as you did for Onthophagus...Stho002 (talk) 22:18, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
yes, if you make a start on Obenberger, I may find time to sort out the references for the others...Stho002 (talk) 22:30, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Is it possible to make the holotype the same as author? So when i add a Holotype (Museum) the colors will be blue or red. Blue is correct and by Red i have to made a new holotype.

Templates[edit]

Hi,

I see you have deleted some templatres from me. Please dont delete my templates without connecting me. Now i have made them on new.

No thats wrong. Its doesn't matter if it types easier, but what is the status. Calospilos is synonymized with Abraxas and became a subgenus. In the official papers they write Abraxas (Calospilos) etc. So my taxa are allso Abraxas (Calospilos) etc. And I want to keep that after original papers and books. You have deleted more genera with subgenera. So I can made them on new.

ok. Excuse accepted.

Regards,

PeterR (talk) 13:29, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

PeterR is wrong, subgenera are optional in a name, and it complicates matters on Wikispecies, so pls don't use subgenera in page titles, thanks ... Stho002 (talk) 08:03, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Article creation using AWB[edit]

Hi Koumz, OhanaUnited had mentioned that you run a bot here to create species articles using AWB. I wanted to suggest that you take a look at CSV Loader plugin for AWB that will make the task easier. There is a walk through page detailing each step. Please let me know if you have any questions. Ganeshk (talk) 03:29, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

This plugin means that I don't have to split up the lists so much anymore (just into sublists based on the number of authors), and speeds up the process quite a bit. Koumz (talk) 21:30, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

Characiformes[edit]

Yes, the Oliveira et al. 2011 paper is exciting; I haven't digested it all yet by any means. I wish they had presented a formal classification incorporating their results, and had listed all the genera they would include in each clade. Their online Additional File 3 at least is a start, with the taxa they examined being listed under, I think, their starting classification (before their results changed many groupings). As you see, I made only a small start on reorganizing WS. Thanks for your excellent help! Their fig. 13, with new family-level concepts, seems a good starting point. So far, as you know, I have only fiddled with the first of the new families, Bryconidae. --MKOliver (talk) 11:36, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

RE: your "Question: do we want to list out the genera of each of the two unnamed clades in Characidae (similar to what others have done for species groups and the like on insect pages) on either Characidae or on Incertae sedis, without making individual pages for the clades until (eventually) they are named?" - Sounds good to me.

Clark Hubbs middle initial[edit]

You added middle initial L. to Clark Hubbs's name. I've never seen a middle initial for him. "L." was his father's middle initial, but I'm curious where you saw that it was Clark's initial too.

CoF doesn't cite first names of authors. Those "Hubbs, C.L." references are all the father, Carl L. Hubbs. His son Clark always published as just Clark Hubbs, as far as I know.
You're right; searching CoF the way you suggest, I *do* find citations with first name spelled out, and given as "Hubbs, Clark L." For example, CoF ref. 7818: http://researcharchive.calacademy.org/research/ichthyology/catalog/getref.asp?id=7818 cites first author "Hubbs, Clark L." But, this is an error -- see image of first page of the actual article: http://www.jstor.org/pss/1442086 . This is one of those annoying errors that CoF, on occasion, makes and repeats throughout the database.
Thanks; I know you're very careful! And, I just noticed that I forgot to sign any of my messages on this topic. Glad you knew whom to reply to... MKOliver (talk) 02:00, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Should we change the help section, and the scores of pages that comply with it?

Should we make your version a standard?

Please tell me what are your thoughts on this issue.

What do You think? Mariusm (talk) 08:58, 12 October 2011 (UTC)



OK, I respect your opinion and your careful attitude. Lets make a definitive separation between:

  • Content
  • Format or presentation

I wasn't referring to content, only to presentation. Suppose you entered ITIS or Fishbase, and each page would be formatted differently. Sooner or later you would get tired of this, and would form a very negative opinion on these sites. If you want WS to be respected, you need to respect the users, and present them with a consistent, soundly formatted site. No matter how the actual information be accurate and up-to-date, with this haphazard formatting that we have now, it will bring us down to insignificance.

If bullets are superior in your opinion, well, lets use them! But CONSISTENTLY! Mariusm (talk) 17:04, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

I think we should concentrate for now on acquiring content, and worry about format later. We probably only have about 10% of known species with a page ... Stho002 (talk) 03:55, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Aenictus[edit]

Could you perhaps use your magic to create pages for the ones with author/date in the Catalogue of Life links? Thanks ... Stho002 (talk) 03:52, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Annularia stellata[edit]

Are you sure about this edit? I'd be highly surprised to find that an entomologist published this plant fossil combination... especially since he would have only been 19 at the time. --EncycloPetey (talk) 15:02, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the link; I've completed the reference information from that. (The user interface at BHL is annoying though.) --EncycloPetey (talk) 04:02, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
