Rewriting needed[edit]

I have tagged the article as needing to be rewritten because too much of the wording is very closely copied from the sources. The relevant discussion of these issues at T:TDYK was here (giving as a permalink so you can still have reference to it after the DYK nom is removed).

Because of the nature of the problem, I don't think it will be sufficient if anyone involved in writing the current article tries to clean it up, since you may not be aware of your close paraphrasing (no intention to offend you guys, it's just natural; it's the same for me, it's hard for me to be aware of problems in my own writing even though I can point them out in others'). For that reason, I suggest you find an outside editor with time on their hands to come clean this article from start to finish, looking at all the references. WikiProject Dinosaurs may have someone who is able to help. Unfortunately, I don't have the time or expertise to do this rewriting, and my only way to fix the copying problems would be to do wholesale removals of the text; I don't want to do that, since you guys have spent so much time writing this, so I will give you a week or so to have someone clean it up before I make any changes.

I suspected that might be the case. The story is that this article was flagged as an upcoming DYK when it was a 1-paragraph stub. In order to beef it up, a single user added about 90% of the current text, much of it in desperate need of cleanup, standardization, and correction. I and some others did what we could and I ran a few chunks of text through search to see if it was plagiarized, but apparently not enough. Dinoguy2 (talk) 15:35, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
I've had my go at it. J. Spencer (talk) 01:57, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

I've decided to remove the tag, as I was satisfied after my go-through that it was no longer a problem. I was just waiting to see if someone disagreed with me. J. Spencer (talk) 03:10, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Revision request[edit]

Rajasaurus (meaning "prince" or "princely lizard") , iam changing this to Rajasaurus (meaning "king" or "kingly lizard") as Raja" in Indian languages ( Hindi,Malayalam,tamil,Kannada]])is King not prince , prince is called as Yuvraj or Rajakumaran Irvin calicut (talk) 09:14, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Well, the name-givers in 2003 explicitly gave the etymology as "prince or princely". They referred to Sanskrit, not a modern Indian language; however, I presume the difference is caused by the fact they used "prince" in its original meaning of "sovereign ruler" instead of "son of a king" (= yuvraj).--MWAK (talk) 07:06, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Reclassification[edit]

Tortosa et al. (2013) found Rajasaurus to be a member of a new subfamily, Majungasaurinae. However, I can't work out how to edit the automatic taxobox. Can somebody with a better grasp of how to use the taxoboxes change it for me? Gruekiller (talk) 06:36, 14 December 2013 (UTC)
