Did you create a citation based upon this stub template, as suggested on the talk page and place it on the relevant taxon pages? Andyboorman (talk) 13:18, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

I have no idea what you are talking about. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:34, 4 August 2020 (UTC
request here. Andyboorman (talk) 14:07, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
From the history of that talk page, it appears that you posted that unsigned, and undated, request. I am unclear why you thought someone else should do that, rather than doing it yourself. I also see that you are referring to an unused template that was marked for speedy deletion (and indeed which has since been speedily deleted) but that you did not remove the speedy deletion tag, nor refer to it, when you made your request.

Very unhelpful. Andyboorman (talk) 16:05, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
Indeed. So why did you do it? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:24, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

Do what? Andyboorman (talk) 15:55, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

Replacing page contents with templates[edit]

Hi Andy, I have two minor questions that are related to each other:

  1. I noticed that some taxa categories use the {{taxa by author}} template while others use standard [[brackets]], would it be desirable if I replaced the pages with brackets and categories with templates (like I've done here)?
  2. The same question as above, but for replacing {{BASEPAGENAME}} templates with species' names whenever I come across those.

ReneeWrites (talk) 09:10, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

@ReneeWrites: Yes to both; in particular, {{BASEPAGENAME}} is deprecated. Incidentally, note how I've reformatted your post, above, to use # for numbered list items. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:21, 5 August 2020 (UTC)


Hello, I would like to realize this: [1] Another option is to unlock the template for one day. - In that case, I will make the adjustment.--Rosičák (talk) 13:42, 18 August 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome[edit]

I'm fairly new to contributing on Wikimedia projects, but I figured it was time to give back. I had photos of some species that didn't have visual representations, so I've been uploading to Wikimedia Commons. Including a couple here on Wikispecies as well, since it's occasionally been a useful resource to me. Cheers. MurphysLab (talk) 18:17, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
