-- hunted for food in the 18th century?[edit]

Hi. Where did you obtain the following information: "Targeting of this species by the whaling industry, for food, is recorded in the eighteenth century". SaberToothedWhale (talk) 22:58, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi. From the ref you appeared to have found. I'm not sure whether the century error was mine, or whether MarineBio had corrected this later; I vaguely recall being unable to go back and fix some things (I was having some problems saving edits around that time). The edit was an after thought, I would have been focusing on the species in the Southern hemisphere, [1] Cheers, cygnis insignis 09:11, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Department of Environment and Conservation (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.

User:Guillaume2303 suggested that you should receive autopatrolled rights, so your contributions are listed automatically as patrolled in New Pages--since the pages you have been writing seem fully suitable both to him and myself, this would enable the New Page patrollers to concentrate better on pages which are more likely to have problems. But I see that earlier in 2011 you requested not to have this right, so I don't want to change it unless you're willing. Please let me know on my talk page.

Who is really going to look up the Dingo and not notice the missing taxobox like we have for every other animal? It's in the news, just so you know, so other editors may descend on this one. I'm sensing this is a very "touchy" article I've discovered, with two different articles for the same animal. I direct you to this: "The dingo is legendary as Australia's wild dog, though it also occurs in Southeast Asia."[2] I tend to trust National Geographic over Wikipedia articles, generally. So, "The Australian Dingo is a free-roaming wild dog unique to the continent of Australia...", as the first sentence, doesn't look correct. It is not unique to the continent of Australia, and plenty of sources prove this. Why is the poorly-written other article (which has 13 references to the Dingo article's 134) worthy of the taxobox?

Note - BRD is a suggestion, really, a way to avoid edit-warring. I'm not at all sure what you meant with your edit summary of "User needs to include the *D* part of BRD, 1 taxon, 1 taxobox. Two arts are a mess, this isn't helping" when you reverted me. Now, if you leave that as your only discussion and do not address this, that ain't exactly in the "spirit" of BRD. I would like a decent explanation as to why there is no taxobox in this article. If you do not attempt to provide one, I will reinsert it, as it only improves the article. Take your time: but do please respond, when you have the chance. Doc talk 07:37, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Please undo your second reversion of my removal of that taxobox. cygnis insignis 16:06, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Elephant taxbox[edit]

The taxbox was added by another user, so whether discussion there was before, the consensus now is that it stays. LittleJerry (talk) 16:46, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Move request on Thomas Keightley (historian)[edit]

As past editor to the article, you are encouraged to participate in the discussion at Talk:Thomas Keightley (historian) to rename Thomas Keightley (historian)Thomas Keightley since requirements of usage and lasting significance under WP:PRIMARYTOPIC appear to be easily met. Also "Thomas Keightley (historian)" would seem to be a misleading label to many nowadays who recognize him as mythology/folklore writer primarily. --Kiyoweap (talk) 13:58, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Widow spiders[edit]

Hi, I noticed that back on March 8th of 2009 you created a redirect from Widow spider to Latrodectus stating "Ambiguous, misleading, and geocentric name: move as per KOJ, MF". I do not know what "KOJ" or "MF" stand for, and so am having difficulty understanding the reasoning behind the redirect decision. I am considering requesting a move of Latrodectus back over to Widow spider in accordance with WP:COMMONNAME, and have created an RfC on the talk page for Latrodectus but don't want to propose such a move without having discussed it with the relevant interested parties first. Can you tell me more about the decision back in 2009 and explain for me what "KOJ" and "MF" stand for? Thank you! --KDS4444Talk (August 21, 2014, 5:34 AM)
