Hello all, this is my Talk page in case you were wondering what this is. ^_^

Common Bulbul[edit]

A bit cheeky, to pretend you've had this on the list since March! But this edit shows otherwise... You might move it to the end of the list, where it belongs!  :) MeegsC | Talk 18:47, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

  • Now amended ;) . I'm quite new here and am yet to understand all the workings of Wikipedia. I'm actually amused, cause all I did was copy the guy's entry and change the details to refer to my article, a pity I didn't see the date, LOL!
No worries; when I saw the matching date and time stamp, I figured that might have been what had happened. Have you joined the Birds WikiProject yet? It's a small but active group, and we're always looking for new members! MeegsC | Talk 20:59, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Welcome![edit]

Haha, thanks ^_^ - Drakenwolf (talk) 20:06, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Pural of genus[edit]

The plural of genus is 'genera' not 'genuses' as per your addition of yourself to the WP:PLANTS list. Just thought I'd point this out! Welcome onboard. Peter coxhead (talk) 07:06, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Darn, I should have remembered that! I couldn't remember the spelling and didn't look it up. My, bad. Thanks! - Drakenwolf (talk) 16:23, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Drakensberg Rockjumper, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Alpine (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Capitalization of bird species' names[edit]

Hi, Drakenwolf. Sorry no one replied at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Birds#Renewed_capitalization_discussion_at_WP:MOS, but the discussion at MOS was (or still is) long and unpleasant, and I think people were tired of it. Yes, one reason is for clarity, to distinguish the Black-capped Gnatcatcher from other gnatcatchers with black caps, and the like. The other reason is that just about all ornithological authorities capitalize species names—the one that's important to me is the International Ornithological Congress, since WP:Birds has decided to use their English names, and they capitalize them for clarity. But as you can see here and in the archives, some people disagree strongly. —JerryFriedman (Talk) 21:58, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Science lovers wanted!

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) 01:55, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
