{{Paleo-amphibian-stub}}[edit]

Hi - I see you have recently created one or more new stub types. As it states at Wikipedia:Stub, at the top of most stub categories, and in many other places on Wikipedia, it is recommended that new stub types are proposed prior to creation at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals, in order to check whether the new stub type is already covered by existing stub types, whether it is named according to stub naming guidelines, whether it is otherwise correctly formatted, whether it reaches the standard threshold for creation of a new stub type, and whether it crosses existing stub type hierarchies. Your new stub type is currently listed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Discoveries - please feel free to make any comments there as to any rationale for this stub type. And please, in future, consider proposing new stub types first! Grutness...wha? 00:20, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

Am I correct in guessing that you like dinosaurs? :P Thanks for editing paleo articles, it seems a lot of the paleo crew aren't as active as they used to be. Abyssal (talk) 21:07, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Yep, but not only I am interested in dinosaurs, i am also interested in paleontology in general. And yes I must agree with you about the paleo crew not being so active lately (I fell like i am the only one on wikipedia on working on this subject). ~Dinosauria Feb-5-09

Mamenchisauridae and Omeisauridae[edit]

Hello, Dinosauria;

It may be useful at this point to redirect either one or both of Mamenchisauridae and Omeisauridae to Mamenchisaurus and Omeisaurus, because: both families are only in limited use, due to the limited current understanding of basal sauropods in general; and they are essentially the same thing (in fact, Omeisauridae as conceived by Wilson in 2002 is a junior synonym of Mamenchisauridae). J. Spencer (talk) 01:17, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Please don't remove CFD tags[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not remove Categories for discussion notices from categories, as you did with Category:Paleontology in video games. Otherwise, it may be difficult to create consensus. If you oppose the deletion of a category, please comment at the respective page instead. Pagrashtak 14:37, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I only did that because i saw the message on that page about being considered for deletion in accordance with Wikipedia's category deletion policy. so i thought i would removed it for you, it wont happen again. ~Dinosauria Feb-5-09

New page edit summaries[edit]

Do not just replace the name of the article in the edit summary. Consider not filling it in at all or writing "creating page for genus". Thanks --DFS454 (talk) 19:36, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Acastocephala[edit]

Please provide some references in reliable third party sources for this article or it may be deleted. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 02:23, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

i have added one at least one so far for Acastocephala, Thanks for letting me know about that. Dinosauria February 2009

Update: I have added 2 more sources for Acastocephala. Dinosauria February 2009

Remopleurides and a few others[edit]

Hello Dinosauria: Please, be careful, remember that genus and species should always be in italics. I fixed a couple, but I see that there are several others that need to be fixed. Don't forget to take care of that please. Thanks, --Polinizador (talk) 20:56, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Aayemenaytcheia[edit]

HI, I can't find any info on this. Can you expand? Otherwise I am tempted to take in to AFD.. Himalayan 20:38, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Behemosaurus & Pyrokerberus & Antillodaeodon & Arbaxoceras[edit]

Where do you have the information from about these animals? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.175.50.78 (talk) 18:44, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

Please provide citation for these article stubs, or they stubs will be deleted. --Animalparty-- (talk) 16:30, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

I just noticed your response to the previous query at User talk:84.175.50.78. Deviantart is not at all a reputable source for scientific knowledge. Unless or until these species are described in legitimate scientific literature, they should be considered as purely fictional creations. --Animalparty-- (talk) 17:04, 13 November 2013 (UTC)


Update My bad.. I thought these where real animals...I'll be more carfule Dec 19, 2015

Speedy deletion nomination of Ginkgo adiantoides[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
