Dear RobHickling, You have been granted autopatrolled user rights, which may be granted to experienced Wikispecies users who have demonstrated an understanding of Wikispecies policies and guidelines. In addition to what registered users can do, autopatrollers can have one's own edits automatically marked as patrolled (autopatrol). The autopatrol user right is intended to reduce the workload of new page patrollers and causes pages created by autopatrolled users to be automatically marked as patrolled. For more information, read Wikispecies:Autopatrollers.
You may as autpatroller use the autopatroller user box on your user page. Copy and paste the following code on your user page:
- Thank you Dan, I appreciate it, and will continue to try to respect Wikispecies policies in my edits. I've created a User Page with a little information about myself.

I see you list some publications. You might like to register for an ORCID iD, and add it to your user page, as I have done on mine. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:52, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
At the water pump is presently discussed two topics;
1.) is to follow a previous consensus and change all [[
BASEPAGENAME]] into [[
susbt:BASEPAGENAME]], something which already has started.
2.) is what to do with the Category: <<taxon name>> (<<any country>>) files created by Stephen Thorpe. Some 5 000 have so far been moved together at Candidates for speedy deletion, but concearn has been objected, that some of those files may be useful, in all, or that parts should be transfered somewhere, before a major mass delete. Please join the discussion at pump and take part in shaping a consensus.
