  • Sadly not seen the papers but there's a load of stuff in the Museum of Natural History in Oxford - may even be able to get a 'chat' with someone(?). I had hoped that one of the well-read types on this collaboration would have seen the papers! - Ballista 04:07, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

  • A euro-dino this time. Loads of potential here, I tried to take photos 10 years ago when I was in the museum in Brussels with the 30 Iguanadons in the one room which looks amazing but they turned out terrible. There is a funky sculpture outside which I will scan from the one photo which worked out OK.
  • I LIKE Iguanodon - bit of an old favourite, I'd like this to be a candidate soon. - Ballista 10:06, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

    • Awesome, awesome pictures. Thanks a lot! Sheep81 10:56, 13 June 2006 (UTC)
      • I never understood why the reconstructed models from the earliest days had such thick, short necks. Clearly, the fossils of Iguanodon show much longer, more gracile necks. Even if you didn't know it was bipedal, you could at least get the length of the neck right, you'd think. --Firsfron of Ronchester 18:12, 13 June 2006 (UTC)
        • Yes, but think of our preoccupation with therapods having scales or teh origin of birds...problem is, no matter how scientific scientists are, they are still human :) Cas Liber 21:00, 13 June 2006 (UTC)
        • I'm not sure if much of the neck or the rest of the skeleton was known at the time those sculptures were created.Sheep81 08:28, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Another "biggy" dinosaur that has a stupid article. It has all the right starts, such as in popular culture & it's stats, but needs a real push to get it to FA status. Spawn Man 01:29, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Same reasons as Tyrannosaurus but slightly less high profile. Get some 'biggies' out of the way, then we could try to 'feature' some with lesser profile but with lots of interesting material. - Ballista 03:43, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Again, pity can't get a copyright-released depiction of the animal on the page. I guess there's a wiki image of O.C. Marsh which could go on the page. Um, Spawn Man, why did you vote for it if you said it was a stupid article? BTW I think it is great that you give lots of feedback to lots of things though. Cas Liber 06:42, 9 June 2006 (UTC) PS: I started a discussion on this on hte discussion page for Triceratops Cas Liber 06:47, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
    • I think Spawn just meant that the article in its current state is "stupid" and not worthy of the status of this dinosaur.Sheep81 07:32, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
  • I'd vote for this one after T. rex just 'cause this is one of those animals you would expect to be featured. I think we should be careful about becoming too focused on North American dinos though, there's good stuff from all over the world now. Sheep81 07:32, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Both these headings were important to all of us as kids as it seemed then there was no discrete group 'Dinosauria' and the term was of historical value only - these two terms were highlighted. Now, as Dinosauria is resurrected with cladistic analysis, they lose their value a bit. Apart from diagnosis (i.e. talking about the hipbones) they are disparate groups of other dinosaur groups each with their own pages. I think this idea's a good one, but feel these two pages should be short and lead into longer pages on the subgroups -my money would be on one of Ceratopsia, Sauropoda, Stegosauria or Theropoda -that people identify as discrete 'groups' of associated critters. Even some of the intermediate groups are fairly disparate (look at Marginocephalia...Cas Liber 11:25, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Lol, Sceli is catching up the big theropod, we'll need a tie-breaker now! ArthurWeasley 06:37, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
I think that Al need more improvement and help, and Sceli is already a good article. Better first help the theropod, and later the thyreophoran. Also there are more featured herbivorous dinosaurs than carnivorous. Because those reasons I eliminate my vote here. Dropzink 07:04, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
Yep, that's a way to force the issue ;). But note that there is an overrepresentation of North American dinos compared to other continents and an overrepresentation of theropods compared to other groups. The current collaboration, Deinonychus belong to these two overrepresented groups and so is Allosaurus. Just a thought. ArthurWeasley 07:29, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

  • Already a solid start for work; Maia is an important dino in the dino world & she has numerous piles of info on her. Hmm... Cas, this is pretty close to your clean slate date - can we keep this here since it's such a late entry or is that cheating? ;) Spawn Man 08:30, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Comments: Fairly well-known Australian dinosaur (one of the more complete specimens), and has the advantage of appearing in multiple dinosaur books as the "token" Aussie dinosaur. Firsfron of Ronchester 03:00, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Good choice. Nominated on friday the 13th, eh?? ArthurWeasley 06:42, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

  • And now for something completely different.......a geologic formation. May not be as fun though....cheers, Casliber | talk | contribs 12:42, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
  • ....oh come on all you ^&&*$%#$#@ - wasn't that bad an idea ?! (joke) cheers, Casliber | talk | contribs 08:14, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
    • It's not a bad idea, Cas, but I'm more interested in the animals than the rocks that encase them. Just a personal preference, you understand. :) Firsfron of Ronchester 20:31, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
      • Me too, I was just being open-minded and throwing up an idea for discussion. cheers, Cas Liber | talk | contribs 20:52, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

  • Another triassic dinosaur - a lot of discusion could make a meaty article cheers, Cas Liber | talk | contribs 08:58, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
  • If we do this, we'll HAVE to get a hold of a copy of Yates (2004) in Postilla. It basically redefines the whole animal. Sheep81 10:55, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

  • With this I have tried to nominate another unrepresented group (was looking for a Segnosaur initially), so to give people an idea of what we haven't done yet. Also from China, has feathers and lots of taxonomic stuff. cheers, Cas Liber | talk | contribs 02:27, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
The use of the term "Segnosaur" is officially discouraged because of the (now discredited) association with Prosauropods. Firsfron of Ronchester 06:36, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

  • It's pretty well known by now, and it shows interest to a wide variety of the public. I've always thought of it as a larger version of a Baryonyx, with a few other distinct features. The article itself has a nice base, but it needs work in my opinion. 69.76.52.74 (talk) 17:40, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
