Citing references[edit]

Hello! I noticed your edit to seed dispersal. Can you please cite a source for the information that you added? This helps readers know that what is written is accurate, and allows them to find out more if they wish by reading the full reference. Please let me know if you are unsure about what I mean. Thanks SmartSE (talk) 11:46, 1 April 2012 (UTC)


I just checked two of the new pages you created (Codia and Strasburgeriaceae), and both of them contained copyrighted content cut-and-pasted from journal abstracts. Even though that text has been made available on the Web, it's still copyrighted and not free to use. See Wikipedia:Copy-paste. Please make sure that the content you're adding is your own contribution based on reading other sources, not copies of those sources. Don't worry about your English being perfectly polished. We have plenty of people who can copyedit, far fewer who can intelligently write about biodiversity on ultramafic soils. You can also place references in a "Further reading" or "External links" section and add a note on the talk page explaining what information they could add to the article, if you don't feel up to summarizing them. Let me know if you have any questions. Choess (talk) 16:05, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 5[edit]

Hi. In your recent article edits, you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. 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.

Biodiversity of New Caledonia (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver)
added links pointing to Maquis and Tropic
Beaupreopsis (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver)
added a link pointing to Maquis

Laurel disambiguation[edit]

Hi, Nadiatalent has reverted material that you had pasted to the Laurel page. She had good reason to do so, not because it is bad material, but because it is the wrong type of page. I suggest that you instead put it onto Laurisilva or Laurel forest. It is good material and it would be a pity to waste it on an argument about where it should go. Actually, I think it would be best in another article of its own altogether, but I have not yet decided where. If I find where you have put it, or if you tell me, I will try to help with the formatting, wording etc. Please do not be angry; WP can be very irritating, but most of the people mean well. Tanto tiempo. JonRichfield (talk) 16:23, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

May 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, as you did to the article Neocinnamomum, please cite a reliable source for your addition. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for how to cite sources, and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Nadiatalent (talk) 02:33, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

Mascarene Islands[edit]

Please be aware that you have a sandbox area that you can use for editing material, so that you don't have to work "live" on the wikipedia pages. Rather than multiple edits, which other editors have to check individually, you can perfect the material in the sandbox, then copy-and-paste it into the actual page. This would save other people some work in checking your edits. Thank you. Nadiatalent (talk) 22:39, 16 May 2012 (UTC)


Hello Curritocurrito. I recommend that you set up a sandbox for yourself for you to use to add information to, and then other editors such as myself can use it to make additions to relevant articles. Your approach, although enthusiastic, is not sufficiently careful, and the articles are often downgraded in quality because of it. The Ocotea article should only be about that subject - it should not contain information about laurel forests in general, nor should it contain lists of every bird known to feed on their fruit. Information needs to be considered for its relevance before it is added. Also as you are aware, your English is not of encyclopaedic quality and this also introduces problems of intelligibility. If you wish to work with native English-speaking editors such as myself, please make the process easier by adding information to your sandbox first, rather than direct to articles. Thankyou. PaleCloudedWhite (talk) 10:00, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Ocotea are lauraceae typical of laurel forest habitat, they are dispersed by columbiformes and other birds, and they are in Africa the Americas and some Islands in Cloud forest mostly. Why must not say it?Curritocurrito (talk) 10:25, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

The information which you added needs to be introduced in a different way, one which is more akin to an entry in an encyclopaedia. I will assist you as and when I have time, but your additions as they stand are not helpful, for reasons I explained above. English is not your first language , so please work with people for whom it is. Set up a sandbox for yourself, and add the information to that for the time being. Thankyou. PaleCloudedWhite (talk) 10:35, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
As PaleCloudedWhite suggested, I set up User:Curritocurrito/sandbox for you with a copy of the Ocotea article. My suggestion to you is make the edits to the sandbox page and then post on Talk:Ocotea to have people review your suggestions, or simply make your suggestions on Talk:Ocotea. Happy editing! GoingBatty (talk) 21:50, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Please, please, please, it is clear that English is not your first language. If you have something to add to an article, then please just add it and let the English native speakers correct it and work on the flow of the language. Please particularly resist the urge to move paragraphs, move photos, and join paragraphs together. This type of change can completely destroy the readability of an English article, and it makes the work of other editors difficult. Thank you. Ocotea (talk) 21:45, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

Re: Knowledge of Dipterocarpaceae[edit]

Wow, I'm not even sure how to say that word. Have we recently crossed paths editing somewhere?  -- WikHead (talk) 11:26, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

To be quite honest, I don't really know a lot about trees. I am however searching for a good central tree-related talk-page for you... somewhere where you might have a better chance of attracting other users with the knowledge you seek. If I can find a good link, I will most certainly post it here to your talk page. :)  -- WikHead (talk) 11:49, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
You're most certainly welcome! I'm guessing that the talk-page at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Forestry might be a really good place to find other users who can be of most help to you. I wish you the very best of luck with your updates. Have yourself a great day Curritocurrito, and happy editing! :)  -- WikHead (talk) 12:15, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi Curritocurrito, thanks for your post at WikiProject Forestry. If you could elaborate a little more either there or at Talk:Dipterocarpaceae about what specific additions you might suggest for that article, that would be helpful. Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 19:04, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I suggest that you add your questions -- "why are they important? what habitat are they living? what animals eat their seeds? are they important economically? what minerals or grounds they need?" -- to the Talk:Dipterocarpaceae page. That will help others think about how they might contribute to that article. DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 20:03, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

I don't get much time to edit Wikipedia pages, but am slowly trying to creat stubs for all the Dipterocarps and correct errors in existing stubs/article. If anyone is interested in editing these pages and needs access to primary sources - I have a reasonable collection of papers (mainly for SE Asia) and can send pdfs.
RE: the questions raised above
are they important economically? - they use to be the main timber export from SE Asia. I don't have figures for what % of the timber trade they account for now
what minerals or grounds they need?- variable - there is a high degree of habitat speacilsation. Some species only occur in Peatswamps, other in poor sand soils i.e. heath forests, others on rich clay soils.
what animals eat their seeds? - when they fruit, which varies from yearly in some of the Sri Lankan species to onces every x (2-16) years in some of the Borneo species - they are an important food source. Sepilok2007 (talk) 23:16, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing[edit]

Please stop adding ridiculous statements and spam to the English wikipedia, and spamming user talk pages. I have been giving you the benefit of the doubt, thinking that the problem is your poor English, but your spam is getting to be too much and too silly. It looks as if your intention is purely disruptive. (The latest patently ridiculous statement that I noticed is on Ebenaceae, that the fruit is a large body of water.) Enough already, it is time to stop. Ocotea (talk) 12:56, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

Tropical plants[edit]

Hi Curritocurrito, My suggestion is that you post your invitation in just two places, the talk pages of WikiProject Plants, and WikiProject Forestry. It may not happen overnight, but you may get some interest in those two workgroups. Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 13:14, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

  • I agree very much with what DA Sonnenfeld has just posted above. Your general questions pertaining to trees and plants need to be posted to either WikiProject Forestry or WikiProject Plants rather than to bulk numbers of random user-talk pages. Many of the 24 recipients of your recent user-talk bulk-posting (myself included) do not specifically work with articles of these topics, and may regard bulk postings like this as inappropriate use of user-talk pages (or spam). It is not my point to be harsh with you as I realise you are new user, but I strongly urge you to be more focused in specific topic areas when engaging in future wiki-discussions. All the best of luck to you with improving the articles you love most! :) Regards,  -- WikHead (talk) 19:26, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
I must add my voice to those above - please just write and then ask specific questions and folks will be glad to help. General questions posted at numerous talk pages indiscriminately will likely be ignored. Casliber (talk · contribs) 09:32, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Do not bother me again[edit]

I have retired, largely thanks to your unpleasant behaviour. Do not spam my talk page again. Nadiatalent (talk) 13:57, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

While appreciating your interest in improving articles on Wikipedia, I, too, now have had enough. You've made your point. Additional efforts along the same lines will only alienate people further. Saludos, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 10:18, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Focus on writing[edit]

Please Curritocurrito, for the last time, just focus on writing and stop posting messages on multiple talk pages. This cannot continue. I see you've come up with [[Quercus franchetii] and I think this is a good start which we can reference and copyedit. But stop with the talk page requests.

Notice of suspected sockpuppet investigation[edit]

You are suspected of sockpuppetry, which means that someone suspects you of using multiple Wikipedia accounts for prohibited purposes. Please make yourself familiar with the notes for the suspect, then respond to the evidence at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Sonia Murillo Perales. Thank you. Rkitko (talk) 14:21, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

June 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, please cite a reliable source for your addition. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for how to cite sources, and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Στc. 21:14, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Content-free pages[edit]

The 15 new genus pages that you created without content reduce the average quality of wikipedia pages, please do not do that again.

(Today's empty genus pages are: Pentachlaena Mediusella Aerisilvaea Croizatia Meborea Phyllanoa Scyphocephalium Pycnanthus Osteophloeum Mauloutchia Haematodendron Endocomia Compsoneura Coelocaryon Brochoneura).

It is clear that you don't know enough about taxonomy to be creating new plant pages: Dipterocarpeae and Shoreae are not subfamilies, and the new pages that you created were purely misleading. (The basic errors have been corrected, but they are still poor-quality pages that are unlikely to be improved in the foreseeable future.) Sminthopsis84 (talk) 01:39, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

AN/I notice[edit]

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved.

Harassment of other editors[edit]

Please do not attack other editors. Comment on content, not on contributors. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Please stay cool and keep this in mind while editing. Thank you. Melburnian (talk) 13:14, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

You have been blocked temporarily from editing for harassment of other editors. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions.
