Speedy deletion nomination of Tessé Sandstones[edit]

Hello Abyssal,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Tessé Sandstones for deletion, because it's too short to identify the subject of the article.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. David Condrey (talk) 02:02, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Schreyeralm Formation[edit]

I don't think that this is actually located in Germany. Both the Paleobiology Database & the Fossilworks link in-article state that this is actually an Austrian formation, while this paper mentions 'the Schreyeralm Limestone of the Northern Calcareous Alps,' which is both located in Austria & Germany. Are there any other sources about the location of this formation? Strangeday (talk) 20:44, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of fossiliferous stratigraphic units in France, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page A2. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 08:50, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Regarding Richard A. Thulborn[edit]

Please consult WP:SCHOLAR before creating stubs about scientists (or any person), and make an effort to verify the living or dead status of the subject. Unless you have evidence to the contrary, or the subject was born more than a hundred years ago, always assume the subject is alive, per WP:BLP. You seem to have arbitrarily pulled Thulborn's name him out of a book he was mentioned in, making a biased article, and stating a fact that is insufficient to establish notability. I've added some broader context to give a fairer picture, and you're welcome to help expand the article, but from what I've found thus far there may not be enough significant secondary material to build a comprehensive biography.

List of fossiliferous stratigraphic units in Kansas et al.[edit]

I have a question about the conventions for articles about geological/stratigraphic units. There seem to be some unusual usages (to my experience) and redundancies. I will only at this point discuss the List of fossiliferous stratigraphic units in Kansas and the Category:Geologic formations of Kansas as my familiarity is with Kansas Geology.

In the List of fossiliferous stratigraphic units in Kansas in particular I noticed listings of what seems to me to be redundant articles, which I think is owing to the unusual naming (which I may be wrong about):

Off the bat, the Admire Group is listed as Admire Formation; in the KGS literature I have read, this and all other groups are all called groups, not formations. Then, the Admire Group is given in your list with its constituent formations, which are shown (IMO correctly) with no “formation” qualifier, even though that is what they are.

There are three entries for the Foraker Limestone formation, but each link to the same page, which IMO is correctly titled without the formation qualifier in this instance. The article itself states that the Foraker is in Nebraska, but it neglects to also state that the formation is also in Kansas and Oklahoma. Moreover, some units like the Grenola Limestone formation are listed twice AND linked to two different articles; one placing it in Kansas and the other placing it in Oklahoma, when it is the same formation in both states (and in Nebraska, too). Then there are a number of actual members described as formations.

It is my observation that in general, that the qualifiers member and formation are commonly dropped; being used only when necessary to give context or when it has become conventional to call a particular unit by its member or formation qualifier, such as the Dakota or Ogallala.

I realize these are stubs, but I would like to contribute to the expansion of the Kansas articles. I imagine that at this point, I would be suggesting deletion/moves/renamings; so I would like to know the conventions for the group/formation/member article titles before I do. Surely, I am not the first to get hung up on this. If it is preferred to list groups and members as formations, please direct me to the relevant geology style guide or discussion.

My intended taxonomy would be the updated Classification of Rocks in Kansas and The National Geologic Map Database.

Referring to National Geologic Map Database (Geolex), I note the listing of Admire as a Group in the relevant states (and not just in Nebraska). However, Geolex also shows that Admire is referenced in OK as both a Group and as a formation in another Group (Vanoss Group). It is easy to see that the units named Admire are the same stratus in both usages, but I am guessing that in certain Oklahoma locations, the unit has lost the characteristic subdivisions seen in Kansas that elevate it to a Group there. Again, let me know if there is any WP convention to apply here. IveGoneAway (talk) 02:03, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

therapsids[edit]

would you mind explaining me why do you create so many articles without crap on them?if you dont know much about them please tell me and im going to fix it(if you wonder if this is possible see the difference between first revison of regisaurus and the articles current revision).othervise they have to be deleted--Regisaurusjacobi 07:54, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Nomination of List of dinosaur specimens for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of dinosaur specimens is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of dinosaur specimens until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. --Animalparty-- (talk) 05:08, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

PD papers behind paywalls[edit]

Just saw your DML query, there are a lot of PD papers on JSTOR. But remember tyhat the PD-1923 only goes for papers published in the US. If it is a UK paper, for example, the authors have to have died more than 70 years ago. FunkMonk (talk) 19:29, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/Borghild Project[edit]

Abyssal, I was wondering whether you were planning to return to this nomination, now that the nominator has responded to your review. If not, please let me know, and I'll look for a new reviewer. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 00:22, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of pathological dinosaur specimens, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sue (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
