Is the arab-israeli conflict section really necessary? In regard to consistency at Wikipedia, every news event (whether a peace treaty or bombing) probably does not merit a separate subcategory in articles for location-types where bombings have occured such as: café, coffeehouse, restaurant, nightclub, or geographic locations such as Maryland (location of Camp David).
Therefore will be deleting this section from the dolphinarium article. Santaduck 11:02, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
- I don't know who put it back but I'm going to delete it again for the same reason. It's just as relevant as placing WWII at the top of countries or Liza Minnelli at the top of women. (SketchNL (talk) 13:16, 3 June 2011 (UTC))
List of dolphinariums removed
It was very incomplete, but, besides that, a complete one would be hard to make and would also become very long (there's 49 dolphinariums in Japan alone!) BabyNuke 12:46, 18 February 2006 (UTC)
- With luck I came across what seems to be a pretty complete list. I've reorganised it, added / removed / changed it to the best of my knowledge and gave it its own page. BabyNuke 21:57, 24 June 2006 (UTC)
Good article review
- insert more images (maybe from here)
- improve external links
- Added three more links and one image. BabyNuke 19:01, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
Just one thing left:
- "Currently an estimated 3000 Bottlenose Dolphins live in captivity across the world." (a reference would be good)
- I've removed the exact number. Though a quick search on google came up with a page confirming the number of 3000, I also found pages with different claims. BabyNuke 20:31, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
- Thanks for the effort! :) BabyNuke 20:56, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
Hello, I've created a proposal to merge several articles, including this one, at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Cetaceans#Proposal_to_merge_articles_on_cetaceans_in_captivity. Please add your thoughts there. Kla'quot 11:06, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Dolsling.jpg
Image:Dolsling.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Just the concerns noted above to be addressed, on hold for seven days, major contributors and projects will be notified. Jezhotwells (talk) 21:18, 15 November 2009 (UTC) I see some work is being done - are you ready for me to have another look? Jezhotwells (talk) 18:58, 21 November 2009 (UTC) Nothing has been done about the lead - it should be at least 3 paras for an article like this and summarise the whole article. Still has one dead link , which is geocities and not RS anyway. I moved the book into further reading and formatted the citation. I will take a look tomorrow and make a decision then. Jezhotwells (talk) 14:22, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
- Thanks for fixing that. I fixed the last remaining dead link and expanded the lead per above. Note that MOS indicates that the appropriate length of the lead is 2-3 paragraphs for articles of this size. Elekhh (talk) 00:35, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
