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 the 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! OhanaUnitedTalk page 13:41, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Request for vote reg use of BASEPAGENAME[edit]

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 Oversighter[edit]

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.

Oversight nomination[edit]

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)

Ailuropoda minor[edit]

Is this a paleospecies ancestral to the extant Giant Panda - well out of my expertise however, so have not deleted the page. Regards Andyboorman (talk) 11:34, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

Ailuropoda minor is probably a distortion of Ailuropoda microta Pei, 1962. Burmeister (talk) 12:02, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
Hello Andyboorman and Burmeister, the paleospecies ancestral is Ailuropoda microta indeed. And A. minor is a pure invention from the Wikimedia project that needs to disappear :) Totodu74 (talk) 12:04, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
Unfortunately, that kind of invention in the "en.wiki" is not uncommon, see Panthera leo europaea see Burmeister (talk) 12:08, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
Wow, that's worrying... Can we identify their author? Totodu74 (talk) 12:10, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
I mark Panthera leo europaea for deletion too (another wiki invention that disperse through time). I think is to late to identify the author, those creations date from 2006 for europaea on en.wiki and from 2008 for minor on it.wiki. Burmeister (talk) 12:24, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Both deleted on WS as requested. You are both right - we have got to be careful not to ascribe legitimacy to this type of spurious species invention. Regards Andyboorman (talk) 12:43, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

Thanks to all of you. We still have many occurrences for Panthera leo europaea, see the Wikidata item. It will require a lot of time and trans-wiki discussions to clean up this mess!! Totodu74 (talk) 13:12, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
ia:Ailuropoda minor deleted from iawiki as requested, as well as ia:Panthera leo europaea. Thanks! Also two red links, on Ailuropoda and Panthera leo, cleaned up on wikispecies. —Tortoise0308 (talk) 15:23, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
Great, thanks for your help Tortoise0308! :) Totodu74 (talk) 14:16, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
