Narwhal[edit]

Thanks for helping. I left a comment on the "climate change" section on the talk page. LittleJerry (talk) 13:49, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

The article is actually now quite close to meeting the good article criteria. The only problems are small sentences at the end of paragraphs without references. Most of the google scholar search (linked on Talk:Narwhal#Climate Change) is of information already in the article, which makes it not possible to expand greatly anymore. If you have any references that you known of that might include the unreferenced information but are not sure where to find a non-abstract article, contact me or use http://scholar.google.ca/ to search the citation, which links PDFs beside articles. PS: Do you know how to nominate an article with more than one nominator, as I could use this for Ocepeia and Opisthocoelicaudia, with Animalparty and Jens Lallensack respectively? Thanks. IJReid (talk) 02:18, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
I don't know how to do a nominate with more than one nominator. I think the conservation section still needs some changing. There still some repeating of facts regarding sea ice change and climate change. LittleJerry (talk) 16:14, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure this can only be done formally on FAs. FunkMonk (talk) 16:20, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
Just to be sure, I asked at WT:GAN. IJReid (talk) 16:26, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
@LittleJerry: As I said on WT:GAN, I was wondering if it would be okay that when the time comes I nominate Narwhal for GA. I know that we have both worked on it, maybe even you more than me, but I am competing in this years WikiCup, and GAs are worth enough points so that I can make it into the next round. If you would like to nominate it anyways, that is perfectly fine with me, but first I would like you, as well as I, to bring this up with either User:Miyagawa, User:J Milburn or User:The ed17. IJReid (talk) 22:26, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
That's okay. You can nominate, but I plan on looking it over first and maybe spotcheck, fix/change some source and/or add some more info. LittleJerry (talk) 01:01, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, for your appreciation, you are getting a barnstar! IJReid (talk) 03:23, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
Are these listed users the main contributors to the article? LittleJerry (talk) 20:01, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Actually, thew are the wikicup judges. If I brought this up with them, that might mean that you could nominate the article and I could still claim points, but it's 50/50. IJReid (talk) 20:03, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
That okay, you can nominate. LittleJerry (talk) 20:20, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Do you have access to the "Mammals of Europe" book? LittleJerry (talk) 21:08, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Sorry, LittleJerry, no luck. I can create a section on WP:REX where you can list any references you would like access to, or just one for this ref, if it is needed so much. IJReid (talk) 01:20, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

I think I we need now is for someone to copyedit the article and then I'll leave it to you. LittleJerry (talk) 21:16, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
I think the lead is too large for the size of the article. LittleJerry (talk) 23:14, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Okay, feel free to nominate it whenever you like. LittleJerry (talk) 02:43, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
Sorry I couldn't help you yesterday and today. But I'm ill and can't do much. I may be back tomorrow evening. LittleJerry (talk) 00:11, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Raphinae[edit]

Hi, I've long considered getting Raphinae to GA so it could become a featured topic (since Dodo and Rodrigues Solitaire are already FAs), but I never seem to get myself together to do it because of all the duplicate info (tedious for me to write the same stuff again, as I wrote the other two), and now I certainly don't have the time. But if you ever want to give it a shot, I'll be glad to help, I have all the references in handy to send you. You can also copy text directly from the daughter articles, should be a "low hanging fruit". Maybe featured topics give more points for the Wikicup, I don't know. FunkMonk (talk) 14:48, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

FunkMonk, I will probably start on it soon, but only get into it once Cryolophosaurus is finished being reviewed. Yes, for the wikicup, FTs give the nominator 40/45 (don't know) points, GAs are only 30. Thanks for your suggestion of Raphinae. Another great thing, even though I sort of wish it wasn't like this, both of the birds are extinct, my specialty. IJReid (talk) 14:56, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Heheh, yup, exactly what I thought. And I thought you would be the best to suggest it to. Some help may be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Birds/Archive_64#How_to_write_a_good_higher_taxon_article.3F FunkMonk (talk) 14:59, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
  • I see you made the nom, but are you waiting, or did you forget to transclude the page? Until then, people can't vote. FunkMonk (talk) 08:11, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for the review of the W. green mamba article. I have a request of you - can you please add all the Naja species here. I added Naja samarensis (link here), but it doesn't appear under Naka like the way N. annulifera or N. melanoleuca do. It isn't appearing as a species under "subgroups". I also added the subgenera Afronaja and Uraeus, and you had already made Boulengerina, for example. I want to add the subgenus Naja for those species that fall under theat subgenus (ie. Naja (naja) oxiana, Naja (naja) naja), Naja (naja) atra, etc). There already is a template named "naja" for the genus as a whole, but I need a "naja" as a subgenus too. --Dendro†NajaTalk to me! 19:35, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Another request, please[edit]

A cladogram is available here it can be found on page 9 of the PDF (or pae 817). If you can add that to the Black mamba article (under "Evolution and taxonomy"), I would greatly appreciate it. --Dendro†NajaTalk to me! 04:53, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 March newsletter[edit]

A quick update as we are half way through round two of this year's competition. WikiCup newcomer Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) (Pool E) leads, having produced a massive set of featured pictures for Silver certificate (United States), an article also brought to featured list status. Former finalist Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) (Pool G) is in second, which he owes mostly to his work with historical images, including a number of images from Urania's Mirror, an article also brought to good status. 2010 champion (Pool C) is third overall, thanks to contributions relating to naval history, including the newly featured Japanese battleship Nagato. Rhodesia Cliftonian (submissions), who currently leads Pool A and is sixth overall, takes the title for the highest scoring individual article of the competition so far, with the top importance featured article Ian Smith.

With 26 people having already scored over 100 points, it is likely that well over 100 points will be needed to secure a place in round 3. Recent years have required 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) and 100 (2010). Remember that only 64 will progress to round 3 at the end of April. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page; if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Atlantic Puffin[edit]

Back in August last year you helped me by replacing the cladogram at Atlantic Puffin, which happens to be Today's Featured Article, with this edit. The cladogram has been questioned here. Would you be able to respond? Cwmhiraeth (talk) 08:36, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 09:16, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
And by the way, in connection with the Narwhal GA, you can claim points at the WikiCup for any article to which you substantially contributed, whether or not you nominated it at GAN. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 09:38, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
@Cwmhiraeth: Oh, must have skipped over that. Well, anyways, LittleJerry said I could nominate, even though I could have claimed them anyways. IJReid (talk) 13:21, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Collaboration[edit]

Hi, well, I know that here in English wiki there is always someone uploaded interesting stuff of paleontology, so I've uploading images for the Spanish articles. Well, I'm interested in your idea of work in articles that exists in both wikipedias, and we can start with Nigersaurus, if you want. In fact, many of the dinosaur articles in the Spanish wikipedia needs revision. On another hand, I've worked in some articles of South American Cenozoic animals in Spanish, (more recently in Langstonia), we could make English versions for these. Cheers, --Rextron (talk) 08:20, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Well, if I understand you well, first we work in Nigersaurus, then in Dromaeosauroides (nice article, by the way, having in mind that is a known from a tooth) and after in Cenozoic animals? And another question, do you use more the discussion page in English or in Spanish wiki?--Rextron (talk) 09:52, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I'll talk with you here, as you can see I'd made some corrections in grammar and the links (some of the articles linked there are not present in a Spanish version or have different equivalents). Also, I've talked with FunkMonk here, but I didn't known that he is Danish :) --Rextron (talk) 06:49, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Great! From now on, I think when I translate info, I will leave out the links, so that the article does not fill up with redlinks. Is this okay with you? Thanks for all the grammar changes, I do not known enough spanish to be able to recognize errors easily. I will finish translating Nigersaurus and when I'm done, I think it could go for GA, and then FA. After that, I think I'll let you chose our plan-of-action for Dromaeosauroides, as it is unique being an FA on only two teeth. IJReid (talk) 12:49, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I prefer put the links by myself, along the grammar revisions (by the way, in Spanish the equivalents of GA y FA are Artículo bueno and Artículo destacado, respectively). After that, Dromaeosauroides will be the next! --Rextron (talk) 21:24, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 April newsletter[edit]

Round 3 of the 2014 WikiCup has just begun; 32 competitors remain. Pool G's Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) was Round 2's highest scorer, with a large number of featured picture credits. In March/April, he restored star charts from Urania's Mirror, lithographs of various warships (such as SMS Gefion) and assorted other historical media. Second overall was Pool E's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), whose featured list Silver certificate (United States) contains dozens of scans of banknotes recently promoted to featured picture status. Third was Pool G's United States ChrisGualtieri (submissions) who has produced a large number of good articles, many, including Falkner Island, on Connecticut-related topics. Other successful participants included Rhodesia Cliftonian (submissions), who saw three articles (including the top-importance Ian Smith) through featured article candidacies, and Washington, D.C. Caponer (submissions), who saw three lists (including the beautifully-illustrated list of plantations in West Virginia) through featured list candidacies. High-importance good articles promoted this round include narwhal from Canada Reid,iain james (submissions), tiger from Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) and The Lion King from Minas Gerais Igordebraga (submissions). We also saw our first featured topic points of the competition, awarded to Nepal Czar (submissions) and Indiana Red Phoenix (submissions) for their work on the Sega Genesis topic. No points have been claimed so far for good topics or featured portals.

192 was our lowest qualifying score, again showing that this WikiCup is the most competitive ever. In previous years, 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) or 100 (2010) secured a place in Round 3. Pool H was the strongest performer, with all but one of its members advancing, while only the two highest scorers in Pools G and F advanced. At the end of June, 16 users will advance into the semi-finals. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews.

Canidae[edit]

I am working on the article Canidae and wondered if you would be able to help me with a cladogram based on Figure 10 of this journal article. I don't think the cladogram would need to include the bear, panda, seal and walrus mentioned at the bottom. It would be great if you could help. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 12:27, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

That's great. Perhaps it could have a box round it and go on the right under the taxobox by the classification section. I have removed an image showing several canid skulls to make way for it. I'm not quite sure what you mean about removing the label Canidae at the top, but please do whatever you think looks best. Thanks. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 18:17, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, that looks good. I have moved the timescale down to give the cladogram more room, and will be expanding the lead section soon and then it will not overlap the taxobox. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 05:09, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Thank you for your GA review of Cuvier's dwarf caiman and for making the cladogram. A comment about the latter, - it is a bit wide with some empty white space to the right of the diagram.

Cladogram[edit]

Hi, I've missed your edits in Nigersaurus, although it seems that you are pretty busy here. Anyways, I want to ask you a favor. Could you make a cladogram for the article of Toxodontidae? I've found a recent paper that includes one, and I don't know how to make cladograms. Greetings! --Rextron (talk) 22:59, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Rextron. First off, what paper is it, and if possible, could you provide me the full text of it so I can see the cladogram needed? After this, I will add a classification section to the article to add the cladogram to. Once that is done, I can continue on Nigersaurus for you. IJReid (talk) 23:04, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
Is it, New toxodontid (Notoungulata) from the Early Miocene of Mendoza, Argentina, from Forasiepi et al., 2014, as you can see is in the website of academia.edu so you must read it without any problem, the cladogram is in one of the last pages. Thanks for the attention and we will continue with Nigersaurus. --Rextron (talk) 00:11, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Quagga cladogram[edit]

Hi there, do you think you could replicate this[1] cladogram for the quagga article? I know, my version is dreadful... Just write that, and I'll modify the names afterwards. FunkMonk (talk) 02:56, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

@FunkMonk: The new cladogram is on my sandbox. IJReid (talk) 20:18, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a lot, I've added it and am modifying the names... May soon go to the mainpage. FunkMonk (talk) 20:25, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 June newsletter[edit]

After an extremely close race, Round 3 is over. 244 points secured a place in Round 4, which is comparable to previous years- 321 was required in 2013, while 243 points were needed in 2012. Pool C's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Scotland Casliber (submissions) finished second overall, claiming three featured articles, including the high-importance Grus (constellation). Third place was Pool B's , whose contributions included featured articles Russian battleship Poltava (1894) and Russian battleship Peresvet. Pool C saw the highest number of participants advance, with six out of eight making it to the next round.

The round saw this year's first featured portal, with Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to Florida 12george1 (submissions) and the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This means that all content types have been claimed this year. Other contributions of note this round include a featured topic on Maya Angelou's autobiographies from Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions).

The judges would like to remind participants to update submission pages promptly. This means that content can be checked, and allows those following the competition (including those participating) to keep track of scores effectively. This round has seen discussion about various aspects of the WikiCup's rules and procedures. Those interested in the competition can be assured that formal discussions about how next year's competition will work will be opened shortly, and all are welcome to voice their views then. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Your GA nomination of Raphinae[edit]

The article Raphinae you nominated as a good article has passed Symbol support vote.svg; see Talk:Raphinae for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already been on the main page as an "In the news" or "Did you know" item, you can nominate it to appear in Did you know.

Thanks[edit]

Thank you for reviewing Wildebeest. It was rather unsatisfactory to work on because it dealt with two different species and it was difficult to see exactly what it should include and what exclude. Single species articles are more straightforward. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 05:24, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Cwmhiraeth If you are not already, I suggest nominating the articles for good topics. Once two of them become featured then they can go for featured topics, but that should take a while. Just so you know, I am open to collaboration, and have not yet brought an article to featured status, which I hope I'll accomplish soon. IJReid (talk) 14:21, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
In conjunction with Sainsf, I plan to try for good topic for the three Wildebeest articles. I am currently collaborating with Chiswick Chap and LittleJerry in trying to bring Rodent to FA status. LittleJerry has now told me that he's thinking of stopping after GAN as he lacks the energy to continue to FAC, and Chiswich Chap is currently on vacation (I think).If you fancied joining us to go on to FAC, it could be useful (as long as the others don't object). You will find discussion of our plans on the article's talk page and we think the article is nearly ready for GAN. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 18:51, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Tyrannosaurus edit[edit]

I'm confused why my t-rex edit keeps getting undid when it has many plausible and reliable sources. If it's a citing problem i would be glad if you could help me with that because wikipedia does it differently then i've done it.

Theshanerocks Your edit keeps getting reverted because it is changing something already supported by a ref. Peer-reviewed journal articles, like the ref supporting the 6.8 metric ton weight, are more reliable that links to magazines or what you added, so if anything is changed, it should be the website ref. I read the website you were linking, and found that it is just copying a published journal article, which if why I decided to stop using the website. I added the 9.5 ton + estimate into the article, which contains all information, not the lead, which just includes well referenced statements. Hope that fixes your concerns, IJReid (talk) 13:45, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Equus cladgram[edit]

Would you be able to create a cladgram of the living equines? The graph can be found here. LittleJerry (talk) 03:54, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Which figure would you like me to base it off LittleJerry? IJReid (talk) 00:50, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
B. Without the Rhinos and Tapirs. LittleJerry (talk) 00:59, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Could you put it in thumb form like this? LittleJerry (talk) 21:24, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Done LittleJerry. If you would like, I can add it to the article if you specify where to place it, or you can copy-paste the source code yourself. Your welcome, IJReid (talk) 00:13, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
That's okay. I added it to my sandbox. LittleJerry (talk) 01:43, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
