Selected images[edit]

Looking through the selected images section of the portal, about half of them all have the same caption: "Kolihapeltis sp. (Morocco; Devonian) A trilobite at Melbourne Museum.". I don't know enough about the inner-workings of the portal to fix the problem. Can someone look into this? Thanks --Kevmin (talk) 23:15, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

It looks like you've already started fixing them yourself. It looks like you're doing a good job. Thanks for helping out! Abyssal leviathin (talk) 04:12, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
Still has the problem. I don't know how to change this sort, either- nor do I have the time currently. CFLeon (talk) 20:16, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Too many dinosaurs![edit]

I think that more time should be spent expanding the non-dinosaur articles in the project! Half of all paleo articles don't even cite sources!-- (talk) 23:37, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Agreed, but non-dinosaurian taxa are much harder to find information for than dinosaurs, and they lie outside the primary field of expertise of the vast majority of our members. Abyssal (talk) 00:16, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
