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 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!

Vernacular Names[edit]

Before making wholesale changes to VN please, for example Lavandula see this discussion first. I suggest you reverts your changes in capitalisation, as many of them are incorrect, including English. Andyboorman (talk) 10:23, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

(with Editconflict, without regard to last change): @Andyboorman:I didn't see there any consensus for using Capitals. Did You? Btw.: cit. "many of them are incorrect, including English": for english, please see article en:Lavandula. Thank You. Happy New 2019 Year to You. --Kusurija (talk) 15:44, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
Do not revert my edits please! It is grammatically wrong and also disrespectful. Please read the discussion and act upon it!. Andyboorman (talk) 15:37, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
Yes I read it, and I didn't see there any consensus for using Capitals. --Kusurija (talk) 15:47, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
@Andyboorman:User MPF was the only one, who opposed to a suggestion to write vernacular_names grammatically in right case, but Rosičák explained him, how he can find lowercase for non latin alphabets. OK? --Kusurija (talk) 15:55, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
Look I do not really care about VN - it is an irrelevance for classification and taxonomy site like WS anyway. However, The accuracy required rubs off in other areas and VNs in English should be capitalised Example. OK the recent discussion was a mess with no consensus and the example sites offered by @Rosičák: were wrong for English. Reverting well meaning edits with incorrect data is a no no on WS, I will put this down to inexperience. Meanwhile happy new year! Andyboorman (talk) 16:07, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
Indeed: the same site writes e.g.: 3. The coast redwood is the tallest tree, reaching a height of 100 metres. (3. The coast redwood is the tallest tree, reaching a height of 100 metres. Similar texts are under the pictures. Thank You for visiting the site. --Kusurija (talk) 16:20, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
You are both correct and incorrect, as the name is capitalised on the site above the picture or do I need glasses? Anyway the point is made about lists and labels, but in "conversation" either. Andyboorman (talk) 17:07, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
This may meen, that author(s) use some style (it is capitalised) of writing in picture labels and normal style in plain text. So what? Does it mean, that style in plain text is uncorrect and style in picture labels is correct? I personally don't think so. And You? Labels above picture optically looks better (for someone) with capitals, than with lowercase. So what? --Kusurija (talk) 18:28, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
when you are writing some text, do you always use lower case? even when starting new sentences? or in index lists? the whole point here is that names in lists are not in the middle of a sentence, they use Title case. from this paragraph, see how bad it looks when you break with standard conventions :-) also please note wikispecies' restriction to one name per language; wikispecies is not the place for long lists of vernacular names. thanks! - MPF (talk) 18:48, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Do what you wish with VN - it means nothing as regards the main purpose of WS. In this case, as with life, one size does not always fit all. However, it is probably not a good idea to impose your ideas on others using an edit war, particularly where the other editor may be more knowledgeable than you. By the way, as you edit through VN, could you be so kind as to edit out la=, as we surely all can agree that Latin is not a vernacular language? Best regards Andyboorman (talk) 18:39, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Yes - please note Latin (unless there is a known classical Latin name which is not the same as the scientific name), and also Simple English, are not added in the VN. See the Help:Vernacular names section. - MPF (talk) 18:48, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
