Welcome again; about WikiProject Insects[edit]

Hi Chuck Entz, and a most belated welcome to Wikipedia!
You might perhaps be interested in participating in WikiProject Insects.

Referencing in James Halliday McDunnough; "Your mission, Chuck Entz, should you decide to accept it... "[edit]

Hi Chuck Entz!
Shirt58 here, Wikipedia:WikiProject Insects tame Liberal Arts major.

  • I'm thinking of tidying the references in James Halliday McDunnough. No treading on your toes is intended.
  • A challenge for you! I don't have access to JSTOR or online journals at present, and I do understand they don't usually include biographical information until it's an obit. Can you find any find anything about Giorgio Baldizzone, who is apparently a prolific Lepidoptera species describer? I can't start the article just based on this link because of the WP:BLP concerns.

--Shirt58 (talk) 11:46, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Feel free to do anything you want with the article: I've taken it about as far as I can, and it's still not up to wikipedia standards as a full-fledged article. As for Baldizzone: I don't have any access to those sources either- but I'll see what I can find. Chuck Entz (talk) 13:03, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for your recent contributions to beetles. For the future, one should remember to add references and avoid one sentence paragraphs. thanks again for the help. Bugboy52.4 ¦ =-= 18:04, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

ChuckEntz? Hulst?[edit]

Hi Chuck Entz!
Just wondering if you ever edited as ChuckEntz (talk · contribs)? Also, is George Duryea Hulst the "Hulst" that is the Genus authority of Monoptilota? I would say my "spidey senses are tingling" about both of these issues... but as George Orwell didn't write, "Six legs good, eight legs completely terrifying".
--Shirt58 (talk) 11:55, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Yep. I didn't even realize I had created two accounts. I must have forgotten the spelling and created the second by accident.

Etymology: yams[edit]

Hi Chuck - I concur with your changes with naming section. I had reservations with it as well, the para felt POV and problematic. Glad you cleaned it up. Cheers, ApostleVonColorado (talk) 21:48, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Science lovers wanted![edit]

Science lovers wanted!
Smithsonian logo color.svg
Hi! I'm serving as the wikipedian-in-residence at the Smithsonian Institution Archives until June! One of my goals as resident, is to work with Wikipedians and staff to improve content on Wikipedia about people who have collections held in the Archives - most of these are scientists who held roles within the Smithsonian and/or federal government. I thought you might like to participate since you are interested in the sciences! Sign up to participate here and dive into articles needing expansion and creation on our to-do list. Feel free to make a request for images or materials at the request page, and of course, if you share your successes at the outcomes page you will receive the SIA barnstar! Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to your participation! Sarah (talk) 18:32, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Please unblock me from Wiktionary[edit]

If you look at my history, you'll see that I do NOT just enter "nonsense/gibberish"----

The particular entry you were complaining about I had a legitimate reason for and it did not cause any problems. If you'ld taken the time to examine the IP addresses of edits, you would have seen that the previous edit was also mine but that I had forgotten to log in (I was using a public computer). I try to keep track of all my contributions, so I logged in and made the so-called nonsense edit so the word would appear in my contributions list.

Blocking seems like a waaaaay out-of-measure response for that nonedit---I mean, I can't even leave this note on your Wiktionary page! I'm completely locked out!

Please unblock me and, if I may be so bold, reconsider your eagerness to block users. Take your time before going nuclear.

Thank you. Thmazing (talk) 17:33, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Refactored a comment[edit]

Hi Chuck. I've moved the comment you made in this edit outside Jonesey95's comment and given it an extra level of indentation to clarify the flow of the conversation. It's better not to insert replies in the middle of other editors' comments, as it can create confusion as to who said what. Actually, if you look again, I think you may find that you were saying the same as Jonesey anyway. Regards, --Stfg (talk) 16:54, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I'm aware I'm not supposed to do that. I was in a hurry, so I inadvertently misplaced the comment. Thanks for fixing it. Chuck Entz (talk) 21:08, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
