One way to work towards making Wikispecies "differ from a generalist encyclopedia" is by expanding the scope to include the Dichotomous Key and Field Guide. See Wikispecies:Village pump#Dichotomous Key and Field Guide. Tuf-Kat 07:47, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)


.another way to do it, is working with other specialist in nature like geographers, vets, gardeners. i have read the word biology in this site more than Pinus!

Rename[edit]

I think it may be a good idea - "Wikispecies:Charter" sounds more appropriate. ---- Anonymous DissidentTalk 07:39, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Sample text[edit]

(since the current text isn't a charter at all...)

The WikiSpecies wiki is a space for biologists to organize free knowledge about every species in the world.

Participants should think about how their work should differ from and integrate with that on other Wikimedia projects.

Custom tools should be developed to support sharing knowledge about species, and should be integrated into MediaWiki where possible.

(+bits about multilingualism, other uses of language, coordination with other species projects online...)

But that doesn't describe what Wikispecies is or what it was started to do. Wikispecies is a database of nomenclature and classification, not of "knowledge" in general about species, nor is it only about species. --EncycloPetey (talk) 23:11, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

translation issues[edit]

the shortcut don't need to be translate and the category (Wikispecies:Charter/9) too. - yona b (talk) 12:57, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
