Indochinese leopard[edit]

Hey, you've been doing great work, I've seen you consistently pop up on a bunch of articles I have watchlisted. In regards to your copy-pasting to a new title, this should never be done, as it erases edit history. Instead, next to the search bar there is an arrow pointing down, click that and you will have the option to move the page to a new title. However, since you have created the new title already, at the moment it can not be moved by a non-admin. You should contact an admin to delete Indochinese leopard so that the current article can be moved to that name preserving edit history. See Wikipedia:Moving a page for more details! Cheers, Chipmunkdavis (talk) 15:04, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for this hint, just didn't think about the edit history. Who is the responsible admin ? --BhagyaMani (talk) 15:25, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Any admin can do it. Just ask one of them on their talkpage, or post at Wikipedia:Requested moves#Uncontroversial requests. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 15:28, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

User page[edit]

Deleted per your request. You can actually say something about yourself on your user page (and it is generally a good idea not to leave it to appear as a red link), as little as you want to and it can be semi-protected on request. Shyamal (talk) 15:52, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Thank you! --BhagyaMani (talk) 08:51, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Asian Paradise Flycatcher subspecies with white plumage in Sri Lanka[edit]

Though it says in article Asian Paradise-flycatcher that that the white form of the Asian paradise flycatcher is absent in Sri Lanka(Under heading 'Description' 2nd paragraph line 7)( cited as "Rasmussen PC & JC Anderton (2005). Birds of South Asia: The Ripley Guide. Vol.2. Smithsonian Institution & Lynx Edicions. pp. 332–333.") I know for a fact that it is present in Sri Lanka. The Indian Paradise Flycatcher (Terpsiphone paradisi paradisi) (a subspecies) is found in Sri Lanka as a migratory bird from September to May. The adult male has white plumage.[1] [2] And I'm a Sri Lankan and I have seen this white Indian Paradise Flycatcher in my home garden every year in the migratory season. It is a very well known bird.

Anyway I want to say thank you for your edit summary. Without that I would not have been able to find to whom to tell this problem. I want to thank you for your contribution to that page.

When saying "absent in Sri Lanka" does it mean its not a resident species? If we find a species as a migratory species can't we say its present?I think we should do something about this. I'm confused. Hope for an explanation soon. Thank you. Gregorvitch (talk) 08:16, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your message and info!! Will revise this section today. BhagyaMani (talk) 08:48, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

I read the revised article. I don't know much about flycatchers in other countries. However, that problem seems resolved. If you will read your reference books and add to the article that some subspecies spend the winter in Sri Lanka that would make the article better, I think. Terpsiphone paradisi paradisi is not mentioned in the list of subspecies. Why is that? In Wikispecies I saw about 17 subspecies mentioned.Thank you.Gregorvitch (talk) 02:48, 27 August 2011 (UTC)

Asian Paradise Flycatcher Layout[edit]

I think as you are still revising Asian Paradise-flycatcher article, you can organize the information more, according to the layout given in WikiprojectBirds page.

Article sections
Most of the bird species articles have a common structure which include various combinations of the following:

  • Taxonomy and systematics (including subspecies, relation to related species, history of naming, alternate names, and evolution)
  • Description (often including details on immature plumage, moult, vocalisations, identification, and similar species)
  • Distribution and habitat
  • Behaviour and ecology
    • Breeding
    • Food and feeding
    • Threats or Survival
  • In culture or Relationship to humans
  • Status

Additional sections may be included to cover aspects that are particularly interesting or well studied in that species. You probably have read this already, I'm sure, but if you can include those subsections and taxonomy and status sections the article, it would be easier to read and understand.Thank you.Gregorvitch (talk) 02:13, 27 August 2011 (UTC)

The issues of status and taxonomic classification are covered and referenced in the intro section of article. Placing the list of recognized subspecies in the "Habitat and distribution" section is appropriate and clear as both types of info, first descriptions and resp. distribution are compiled in just one list. If you want add any more detailed infos re: diet and reproduction etc. that you feel are necessary : go ahead : just reference these. -- BhagyaMani (talk) 12:55, 27 August 2011 (UTC)

About the Bengal and Amur tiger[edit]

Hi, I was reading your changes in the articles of the Bengal and the Amur tiger, and you are erasing REAL SCIENTIFIC data and changing the order of many data without any justification.

I suggest that before you could made any change of this kind, you most ask first in the talk section. I have rescue many of the data that you simple erased before. Please, don't do this, specially when this data came from reliable sources.

I will change many of your modifications, because they are not accurate. Greetings. AmbaDarla (talk) 06:44, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

You may not have noticed that I've been working on both articles for quite some time already, and replaced lots of second-hand and poorly referenced content with information and respective references from old and new sources. Your assumption that I erased info is nonsense: apparently you did not bother to check closely enough. Regarding your addition about the male called “Banzai” in Siberian tiger Characteristics: what's scientific about Putin's personal website? But nonetheless, I did not delete this info from your reference, merely revised cited content. BhagyaMani (talk) 13:47, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
Actually, I have not try to disturb you, but I want an explanation from you, because you were erasing many REAL SCIENTIFIC data, and why erase the name of the tigers in the Amur tiger section??? That’s a real nonsense. About the record Amur tigers, you really don’t have a clue. Maybe you don’t know that the heaviest male tiger captured by the Siberian Tiger Project (named “Dale”, with identification M-20) weighed 205 kg; the heaviest male tiger captured by The Amur Tiger Programme (named “Banzai”) weighed 207 kg. So don’t come here erasing things that you don’t know. Please, respect the previous editions, after all, it cost me some time to found all this information. I don’t know why you deleted the phrases “the heaviest” and “the record is”, after all, those are important in the article. The two male tigers captured in Nepal that weighed 272 kg+ are indeed the heaviest Bengal males in scientific record, and this must be write in the article. Just for you knowledge, I have found a recent article of May 2011 that state a NEW record for the heavies Amur tiger, is a huge male named “Sheriff” that weigh 220 kg!!! This is really surprising in the present population. I suggest that instead of compete, we can work together, after all, I see that you are willing to change some things that are incorrect and I like that, but please, don’t touch the records, that’s my area. Greeting and cheers. AmbaDarla (talk) 19:53, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Again: your assumption that I erased info re: measurement and weight is nonsense. This issue is anyway sufficiently dealt with in both articles, the more so as weight differs in individuals depending on whether they were captured with filled or empty stomachs. Try this out yourself. Size records were interesting for naturalists and trophy hunters between the early 19th century and the mid 20th century. Extending the record list does not improve the articles. And improving them is what I'm interested in, but not in such kind of data per se.
You did not answer my question: what's so scientific about Putin's personal website that you insist citing from ? BhagyaMani (talk) 22:35, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, but you erase data, and that’s a fact, no nonsense. The weighs, indeed, depend if the animal was empty belly or baited, BUT both animals that I quote (male Amur tigers) were not baited. And I have A LOOOOOOOTTTT of data about tigers and lions and many many many other animals that back up any of my statements. And the list or records do improve the article, as there are a lot of people that is interested in this data, especially when the data came from scientists, after all, not just the old naturalists and hunters care of these issues in this days. You want to improve data? Do it, but don’t erase the data that YOU think is irrelevant, because is relevant for other persons. And sorry, but some of the data that you have post is not actualized, like the Bengal tiger population. Check the new information about Bengal population. Finally, the page of “The Amur Tiger Programme” is not the “Putin's personal website”, this is really nonsense, and this show your lack of information on tiger conservation. Science don’t search ideologies of politics, if Putin want to save the tiger, he is welcome, and that website have really good and scientific data, like the full article of the history of the Amur tiger conservation in Russia. So, don’t underestimate that web page, it have good data. And I will insist in present the name of the specimens, after all, the people deserve to know about them. Sorry if you get mad, that was not my intention (I offer you to join forces), but I like the way the size figures are, after all, I put many of them. AmbaDarla (talk) 23:03, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

You misunderstood: I do not intend to improve data, but only the article, and how data are presented.
Note: the presentation "The Amur Tiger Programme" is hosted by premier.gov.ru which translates as "Prime Minister Government of Russia". As far as I know, this man is called Putin.
Don't worry: am not mad at you, and wonder whether you project your own emotions. But may change my mind if you keep charging. BhagyaMani (talk) 21:56, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
