{{helpme}} I currently need several images of a Masked Ringtail. If you can provide, that would be great. If not, websites or sources where I can find my requirements would accepted too. (KnowledgeRequire (talk) 22:22, 22 July 2009 (UTC))

Since there' nothing in the article, and there doesn't appear to be anything on the the Wikimedia Commons, it appears you're stuck with a Google image search.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 22:27, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Also, since you seem to be interested in the subject, consider signing up for one of the many weather-related WikiProjects, where Wikipedians collaborate to improve articles related to a certain subject. Currently, there are four weather-related WikiProjects: Meteorology, Tropical Cyclones, Severe Weather, and Non-Tropical Storms. If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question on this page and then place {{helpme}} before the question. Again, welcome!

Welcome to WP:BIRDS!![edit]

Galleries[edit]

Gallery articles go on the Commons. You will find your elephants at Commons:African elephant. You should now use Magnus' toy to request the transfer to the Commons of those images which are not already there. Once they have been moved, go to the descriptions on the Commons and put them into appropriate categories.

I have moved File:BushElephantProvidenceZoo.jpg & file:Bull elephants small.jpg for you. They need categories now. — RHaworth (Talk | contribs) 17:25, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Hail[edit]

I think I've responded to all your comments now. As for the hail size comment, I did add a line concerning measurement of hail with a ruler prior to comparison to common objects, per your comments. Thegreatdr (talk) 20:28, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Severe weather[edit]

  • I've posted article specific information on the talk page of Sever weather. I restored my edit to the lead; I think it's an improvement. If you disagree we'll seek consensus on the talk page. Specifically, the lead had problems with WP:UMD, but also WP:LEDE and some other general MoS guidelines.

My real concern though was that you very quickly reverted my edit, saying that it was already cited. My concern was a style one. I worry that your revert would quickly scare away newcomers because it's very different for a repeat editor of an article to revert than for a vandal patroler to do so. It's bitey to blithely revert a good faith edit, particularly when that edit is specifically within guideline. It would be better to restore the part you thought was right, while keeping the rest.

There's a reason that the page is showing up on the copyedit guild--from the first sentence it needs revision on a few MoS conventions. Don't scare off those trying to help you improve the article. We all have different strengths. We've all done it, me included. When we edit articles a lot we tend to know what's going on, and think they're in good shape, but sometimes an outside eye is helpful. As you may have seen, Wikipedia's gaining a reputation of scaring off new editors. I understand the process, but if I was new I don't know if I'd bother to do that. Shadowjams (talk) 00:57, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

  • One of the editors contacted me about new ideas regarding this article. Since I've been away from the article for eight months, I saw it with a fresh perspective. I think we went about things in a way that was too complicated last year. This morning, I simplified the format. I'd be interested in your opinion as to whether this reorganization improved the article or not. Thegreatdr (talk) 19:24, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
    • I'll see what I can do. School has been harsh lately and I'm having trouble finding the time. But so far, it has improved drastically. I might take a more detailed look later. KnowledgeRequire (talk) 23:24, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Chihuahuan Pocket Mouse VS Chihuahuan Desert Pocket Mouse[edit]

Hey there. Would you be willing to take a look at my edits (specifically these ones: [1], [2], [3] and [4]. I based my moves over the links I saw (provided in edit history) but I am no expert in these species so I thought maybe you can double check. Cheers!Calaka (talk) 03:40, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

I'm too not an expert in rodents, but based on the information I have, the move is fine. Thanks for your edits! KnowledgeRequire (talk) 00:33, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Announcement[edit]

Hello! I'm The Arbiter, one of the coordinators for WikiProject Zoo. I am proud to announce the launch of a new portal: Portal:Zoos and Aquariums! ZooPro, ZooFari, and I worked hard to create a new portal for information on zoos, aquariums, and the associated projects and articles on Wikipedia. If you could head on over, take a look at our work, and maybe learn some more about zoos and Wikiproject Zoo, it would be great! Cheers and Happy Editing!

Science lovers wanted![edit]

Science lovers wanted!
Smithsonian logo color.svg
Hi! I'm serving as the wikipedian-in-residence at the Smithsonian Institution Archives until June! One of my goals as resident, is to work with Wikipedians and staff to improve content on Wikipedia about people who have collections held in the Archives - most of these are scientists who held roles within the Smithsonian and/or federal government. I thought you might like to participate since you are interested in the sciences! Sign up to participate here and dive into articles needing expansion and creation on our to-do list. Feel free to make a request for images or materials at the request page, and of course, if you share your successes at the outcomes page you will receive the SIA barnstar! Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to your participation! Sarah (talk) 20:06, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
