Technical cosmetic issues
The text of this article overlaps with the links to "Main Page", "Recent changes", etc., in the upper left corner. Can someone figure out how to fix that? Michael Hardy 18:44 Apr 23, 2003 (UTC)
I just uploaded some photos of the Red-necked Pademelon taken in Lamington National Park, Queensland.'Bold text''''Bold text''''Bold text''''''' Could someone please craft a page for them? - See User:Gaz/Images - Thanks, Gaz 14:59, 7 Oct 2003 (UTC) minor edit by UtherSRG (talk) 13:55, 13 March 2006 (UTC)
Should these be added to the classification? There are article for most of the fossil macropod genera now. --Peta 02:40, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
- Sure... as long as it's not done one genera at a time. Add all the fossil taxa that you can find at once. I had a conflict with another editor who just wanted to add the one fossil taxa that he wanted listed on another family article, without adding anything else.... - UtherSRG (talk) 11:04, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
- I was hoping you'd have a list ;). I'll check the recent literature and see if there is anything missing. --Peta 21:18, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
Macropods are endemic to continental Australia, not withstanding the introduction of some animals to the UK or New Zealand they are native only to the Australian mainland, continental island of New Guinea, continental island of Tasmania, and some other smaller continental isles.184.108.40.206 (talk) 22:33, 9 February 2009 (UTC) ==
I have read the revised taxonomy of Kear and Cooke 2001 and the extinct genera resemble little of what is here. Am looking to revise this part based on this and other references others can provide. Of corse peer reviewed that is.

There is no such thing as a 'macropod'!!!
'Macropods' do not exist- The name of this page, including every single reference to 'macropod', should be changed to 'macropodid' (as in Macropodidae). For there to be such a thing as a 'macropod', an order specifically called 'Macropoda' must exist... but it doesn't!!! Ronny Corn (talk) 12:22, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
- While it's true that the correct scientific term is "macropodid", that does not mean that there is no vernacular word "macropod" with essentially the same meaning. This word does, in fact, exist (for example, it is listed in the Concise Oxford English Dictionary), and since Wikipedia prefers common terms to scientific ones where they exist, it is, in my view, the correct title for the article.Anaxial (talk) 18:34, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
There seems to be a problem in this section. It says "There are two subfamilies in the Macropodidae family: the Sthenurinae ... is now represented by just a single species, ... the Banded Hare-wallaby", but the "banded hare wallaby" is actually listed under lagostrophinae. I presume there has been a reclassification, but the section needs to be consistent.
