Thank you for sharing your vast knowledge on lemurs on the Main page, and for your determination to complete as much as you can of your full plate, - repeating: you are an awesome Wikipedian (21 May 2010)!

Genus categories for common names[edit]

I see you were involved in some edits around cateforizing genera under the common names. There is a discussion about the subject at WT:TOL#Categorizing taxa vs. common names if you are interested. Rlendog (talk) 19:14, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Ugh... I hate these kinds of discussions. At least it's remained civil. It's unfortunate, though, that it ended in ambiguity. Anyway, I'm just going to work things out for the strepsirrhine articles with BDD by replying to him on the Ring-tailed lemur article. Thanks! – Maky « talk » 20:50, 20 March 2014 (UTC)


I know it is six months ago you posted your request on WP:PNT. I do not speak Japanese well but I studied it for a year and between us we could probably translate your articles quite well. So give me a ping when you want them to be tidied up. I learned it at university and my linguistics teacher, and Japanese teacher, said you always translate into your native language not out. my wife is Hungarian so she does the translation one way and I do the other, even though we both speak both. I am not familiar with anime particularly but that is your job but we can do the translation together, your knowledge and my English! Hajimemashite. Si Trew (talk) 21:23, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

@SimonTrew:: At this point, I don't have time to work on The Garden of Words, though if you can read Japanese, I may have time to finish up Hotarubi no Mori e. For that one, I need someone who can read kanji and translate a few remaining sources. Once I have them translated, I can put on the finishing touches and then submit the article for FAC. If you're up for that, let me know. – Maky « talk » 23:43, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately I can only read katakana and hiragana and a few tiny little bits of kanji. You do the rough and I'll do the blue pencil (editing). Si Trew (talk) 23:47, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
The problem is that I can't read Japanese at all. What I'm needing is someone who's fluent enough to translate Japanese to English. I can handle the rest. Thanks, though. – Maky « talk » 00:20, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
