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:
- Help:Contents provides a good introduction to editing Wikispecies.
- Templates are there to help you following syntax and formatting rules.
- Have a look at Done and to do.
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!
IMPORTANT: The layout of the pages you create does not conform with the Wikispecies' format. Please read our help pages in order to remedy that, particularly the Help:Taxonavigation section and Help:Name section pages. For an example of how to fix the problem, for instance see this diff, or this. Thank you.

AGAIN: The format of the pages you create does not at all follow the recommended Wikispecies format. Please read our help pages, particularly the Help:Taxonavigation section and Help:Name section pages. To see how to fix the problems, for example see this edit, or this. Both those are links to pages you have created, which are then edited by me. Your original code is on the left side of the pages, and my edits to the right.
If you need further help or consultation, please do not hesitate to contact me on my talk page, or ask questions to the community at the Village Pump. We will be happy to assist you! Thanks. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 16:48, 17 December 2016 (UTC).
Please read and follow the directions in the help pages, particularly the Help:Taxonavigation section and Help:Name section pages, or your edits will most likely be deleted. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 13:32, 27 December 2016 (UTC).
As has been pointed out, your pages do not conform to WS current practices. I suggest that you stop adding new pages and either edit out the format errors on the ones that you have created, or wait for a more experienced editor to correct them for you. If you persist you will have to be temporarily blocked whilst this is sorted out. The block will still allow you to communicate, but not edit. Please let us know your intentions by using your talk page. If you are unhappy communicating in English then just use your native language, as we should have somebody who can read your communications. Regards Andyboorman (talk) 08:54, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
You have been blocked
I am sorry that you have ignored warnings about your edits. Consequent to my last post here I feel that I have to impose a temporary block. Your edits do appear to contain good information, but as they do not conform to Wikispecies format they will cause a lot of work for somebody else to clean them up. I have made the block one week and you can still communicate here or by email. You can also access the Help Pages. As I said before, please communicate in any language that you are comfortable with.

Request for vote reg use of BASEPAGENAME
The previous discussions regarding if we should subst:ing BASEPAGENAME and change all [[
BASEPAGENAME]] into [[
susbt:BASEPAGENAME]] did not really reach a consensus.
Please vote here on the Village pump!
If you are not sure on your opinion, you can read and join the discussion about the claimed advantages and disadvantages of using BASEPAGENAME
Wikispecies has no local Oversighter. Since I had the communitys confidence regarding the previous application for Checkusers rights, as per local Oversight policy on META, I hereby apply to get Oversighters user rights, as a request to the Wikispecies community.
Application is located at Requests for Comment.
Please also note that Oversighter actions are logged, but for privacy reasons the logs are only visible to other Oversighters. Because of this, Wikispecies must always have no fewer than two oversighters, for mutual accountability. I don't want to suggest anyone, but hope that someone feel inspired and will step forward and also apply for oversighters rights.
Please refer to Wikispecies:Oversighters/Requests/Koavf for a second Oversight nomination. Note that we must have at least two Oversigthers in order for anyone to have these user rights. All feedback is welcome. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:50, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
