Subspecies are now species...[edit]

Hey guys, I'm a relatively new user, but I was looking at the IUCN page and noticed that the subspecies are all now species. I'm not sure if there's an easy way to make pages for all of them or not, but that seems like a lot of work. This means that the species this page is referring to, Chelonoidis nigra, is extinct, as Chelonoidis nigra nigra is extinct. -http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/9023/0

Also, the link for the IUCN page to Chelonoidis nigra meaning the large group of subspecies is now dead because of the recent changes. Here's the list of sources

http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/9023/0 -Floreana Giant Tortoise (Chelonoidis nigra) Extinct

http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/9017/0 -Pinta Giant Tortoise (Chelonoidis abingdonii) Extinct

It has already been started on the Chelonoidis page. Dger (talk) 17:29, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Long list of synonyms[edit]

Do we really need the entire long list of synonyms in the sidebar? It creates a large space between the lead and the rest of the article and it makes mobile users have to scroll through lots of text before they can even read the article. IWillBuildTheRoads (talk) 05:13, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Wikispecies can provide the list of synonyms and some especific material about nomeclature. Burmeister (talk) 18:53, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
Wow, just had a look on my mobile and I see what you mean. It would be better if it was hidden and you could elect to show it, as on the desktop version. I suspect this may affect other articles too so I would suggest you bring this up at Wikipedia:Village pump (technical) and maybe someone there can work out a fix.
