Edit log[edit]

The following edits have been made to the page:

  • 00:56, 4 February 2011: Fixed comment at the top of this template. This bug was actually copy-pasted from {{automatic taxobox}} and has been repaired already there and again at {{ichnobox}}. Bob the WikipediaN (talkcontribs) 00:56, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
  • 03:23, 9 February 2011 (UTC): Added support for |greatgreatgrandparent_authority= to correct a glitch when the great-great grandparent displays. Bob the WikipediaN (talkcontribs) 03:23, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
  • 16:18, 15 February 2011 (UTC): Disambiguated from animal taxoboxes by establishing pink as the official oobox color. Bob the WikipediaN (talkcontribs) 16:18, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

I'll be generating a few test samples on this page to demonstrate the oobox. Due to the size of the code generated by automatic taxoboxes, we are limited to three examples on this page. Feedback is appreciated. Note that the title of the oobox will actually display the same title as the article unless otherwise specified. I've noted that the taxonomies I'm finding tend to incorporate actual taxa into the taxonomies to make them more relevant. If this is undesirable, let me know. Also, I'm wondering what color the oobox ought to be. It's been expressed at Template talk:Ichnobox that these boxes shouldn't be any of the following colors:

Viruses rgb(250,250,190) also Viroids
Bacteria rgb(220,235,245)
Archaea rgb(195,245,250) also Nanoarchaeota (Nanarchaeota), Korarchaeota, Thaumarchaeota, Crenarchaeota and Euryarchaeota
Eukaryota rgb(245,215,255) For eukaryotes with no other colour defined
Opisthokonta rgb(240,240,120) For opisthokonts with no other colour defined
Animalia rgb(235,235,210)
Fungi rgb(145,250,250)
Archaeplastida rgb(180,250,180) also Plantae and Viridiplantae

Should oofamily really appear under genus? Should ootaxonomy (which is really a branch of organ taxonomy) really be mixed with true taxonomy? Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 14:14, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
This rather exhaustive reference was my reference in setting it up. If someone's got a more accurate guide, feel free to fix the errors. Also...I read somewhere recently that the ICZN has approved ootaxonomy, although I'm not sure to what extent. Bob the Wikipedian (talkcontribs) 21:02, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
I have posted at Template talk:Taxobox colour; please place any comments regarding color there. Bob the WikipediaN (talkcontribs) 22:47, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Upgrading to the next version of {{str find}}[edit]

Per the recent modifications to {{strfind short}}, it has been advised this faster and more capable template take the place of {{str find}} where possible. Because {{PAGENAMEBASE}} is a structural template at the foundation of the code of this template, this edit could potentially cause havoc if not evaluated first for soundness.

I'm requesting anyone who has enough know-how to evaluate this proposed modification respond to the RfC listed at Template talk:PAGENAMEBASE. The template is being used in this template. Bob the WikipediaN (talkcontribs) 03:26, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Oocohort, Oomagnorder, etc.?[edit]

Many of the Ooboxes have the following ootaxon names: Oosuperorder, Oocohort, Oosupercohort, Ooclass, and Oomagnorder, but I cannot find any Ootaxa above Oofamily anywhere in the scientific literature. So far as I can tell, these terms are used only on Wikipedia, Paleofile, and websites using these two as sources. Should we really be using these terms on Wikipedia if they're not official terms?
