Disambiguation link notification for March 21[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Rockhead (fish), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Washington (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.

Missing species[edit]

Hello Wilhelmina, another update with some genera with missing species pages: Melanarctia, Popoudina, Pseudoradiarctia, Radiarctia and a very big one: Spilarctia. Regarding this last genus: it has very good coverage on wikispecies. Could you, when making species pages, use wikispecies as a source and add the synonyms also (including the redirect)? This would save me a lot of extra work. Cheers! Ruigeroeland (talk) 11:59, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

At long last, done! As you’ll see, I’ve added some shortening to my sig! (talk) 04:47, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Nice work! I have another batch (there were more, but I already fixed those): Tigrioides, Sarosa, Poliopastea and Rhabdatomis. There is also Palearctia. Regarding this last genus: this one also has very good coverage on wikispecies. Could you, when making species pages, use wikispecies as a source and add the synonyms also (including the redirect)? Please also add the subspecies if you don't mind.. No worries though, this genus is very much smaller than Spilarctia was.. :) Ruigeroeland (talk) 17:18, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
Done! :) As you’ll see, I’ve added some shortening to my sig! (talk) 17:44, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Just curious.[edit]

What is up with you and User:Ruigeroeland? Because this looks rather... anomalous. Keφr 12:51, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Anomalous? Really? I thank everyone I'm in a partnership or collaboration with - the thank button saves a lot of talk-page time. As you’ll see, I’ve added some shortening to my sig! (talk) 17:24, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Cheers Elephant[edit]

Dear Wilhelmina,

Per the Cheers Elephant article(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Articles_for_creation/Cheers_Elephant), I am curious as to why it was rejected. I recall the rejection asking for notable sources, but I'm having trouble seeing what's inadequate as 6 independent sources were used.

Myself and AndrewRLM have taken time to put together all of the article's information with clear citations as I'm wondering what we could be doing better. Could you please review the article and specifically cite areas needing improvement so we can meet Wikipedia's standards of publishing?

Thank you, Alex — Preceding unsigned comment added by 23.240.171.160 (talk) 05:12, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Fringelip snake-eel may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

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 Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) (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!

Your third sandbox[edit]

Hi. What's all that stuff that's been going on in User:Wilhelmina Will/Sandbox 3? It doesn't seem to be benefiting Wikipedia in any way - is it some script that's gone out of control?  —SMALLJIM  09:53, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

It's mostly a way to exercise my efficiency - the prolonged version I've been doing lately is my Lent ritual for this year. Spring in Wikipedia is lovely! Just avoid the articles on flowers... (talk) 17:23, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm really sorry to be a killjoy, but I think it should stop. No benefit to the project, wasting resources, boosting your edit count, and probably contrary to Bot policy. Can we just resolve this quietly? I don't think either of us would gain anything from it being raised at WP:AN to get other opinions.  —SMALLJIM  17:36, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
@Smalljim:But what about Lent? When you've made a commitment for Lent you've got to see it through. Why don't I keep my commitment until Good Friday and then stop for good - I'm weary of it anyway - and then we can just let this blow over quietly. Please? Spring in Wikipedia is lovely! Just avoid the articles on flowers... (talk) 18:14, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Why not just make one token edit each day? I'm sure your deity would understand.  —SMALLJIM  18:19, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
@Smalljim: 10, in that case. Till Good Friday, and that's the end of it. Then will you please let this go? Spring in Wikipedia is lovely! Just avoid the articles on flowers... (talk) 18:22, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
OK, 10 a day till then, but you've got to stop eating chocolate too :) Thanks,  —SMALLJIM  18:29, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Alright then! :) Spring in Wikipedia is lovely! Just avoid the articles on flowers... (talk) 18:30, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Apology[edit]

Wilhelmina Will, you've convinced me that the edits you made today were of a completely different nature to those made earlier, which won't be repeated. Even though I was sure that I had considered today's edits thoroughly enough to warrant making the above report, I was wrong, and I apologise to you for that. I hope you'll continue to benefit Wikipedia by your work. Please accept my best wishes,  —SMALLJIM  22:05, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Bombycidae[edit]

Hi Wilhelmina. Great work on finishing some families. Regarding the Bombycidae, taxanomy for this family is a real mess. Please continue making the species using LepIndex, because there seem to be little to no other sources. Regretably, LepIndex is lacking info on locations for most species of this family, so it is taking me longer than usual to add info to your new pages. Could you hold off creating a new batch until I finished the ones you did today? If you wanna help: could you please move all Hygrochroa species pages to Apatelodes species pages? It seems Hygrochroa is now considered a synonym of Apatelodes. Thanks! Ruigeroeland (talk) 13:50, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Good work, creating those new articles! Might be good to use {{WikiProject Lepidoptera}} on the talk pages rather than the now dated {{LepidopteraTalk}}.

Bucculatrix[edit]

Hi Wilhelmina, I see you arrived at creating Bucculatrix species. These species have a lot of info available (since they are primarily found in Europe and North America). Could I ask you to limit the number of new pages for this family to about 30 a day? Furthermore, the list we have on the genus page is outdated. Could I ask you to use the sandbox I created (and start with the European ones and work to the bottom)? No need to change the list in the genus article, I will do that when all species have a page. I can then use the category to create a full list. The Sandbox is found here: [1]. Cheers! Ruigeroeland (talk) 09:27, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
