Pinaceae template

Thanks for making this! - I'm not too good on constructing the formatting for these :-) I've made a change to have all the genera by scientific name (the way it was before) instead of a mixture of English and scientific - MPF 16:08, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

Eucalyptus list

Hi Eug - any idea which is the valid name of Eucalyptus costata and E. incrassata? - they shouldn't really both be in the list if they're the same species! - MPF 00:16, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks! A synonyms list at the end is an idea, but I'd only include the more commonly found synonyms (the ones found referred to frequently in recent books/websites) - if every synonym was included, the list would probably end up 3 or 4 times as long as it is now (or more: I don't suppose OZ plants are so badly off, but some European plants have accumulated well over 100 synonyms each . . .) - MPF 14:26, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

camaldulensis dropping branches

You changed river red to say that it is a water saving feature. Do you have any references for this? Remember, no original research. njh 10:35, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

Ok, well I guess that is fine. I was tempted to put it in as a possible cause, but several sites say that it is unknown why, which makes me wary. I'll reword it... njh 21:04, 11 December 2005 (UTC)


Hi Eug - re "Ironbark - is hard, rough and deeply furrowed. It is soaked with dried kino which gives a dark red or even black colour", the link to kino needs disambiguating! - MPF 11:18, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

Andrés Laguna

Hey, Eug, I just did a preliminary translation of the article you suggested (based on Lagunaria). I also changed your link to the correct page. Thanks for the suggestion: feel free to look it over and make any changes you see necessary. Trevor 22:19, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Granite outcrops

Thanks for that - good to see some support for that one! (must cleanup the list sometime) SatuSuro 12:38, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Yobot mistake

Hi Magioladitis, just wanted to let you know of a mistake that I've found: Also this article isn't one that Yobot would usually deal with. eug (talk) 06:16, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for reporting. You are right. This is not one of Yobot's usual tasks. This was supposed to be part of a special task Yobot performed by partially dealing with a list found in User:Carlaude/Notes. -- Magioladitis (talk) 06:26, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Sorry for that error. I tried to remove any posible nonChristian organizations before asking them to be done by robot, but I see this is quite an error. I hope it is the last (as well as the first) error of this sort-- but I will still begin looking at all the changes made on that one that list right now. --Carlaude:Talk 06:34, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for doing that. Very nice this is an editable encyclopedia! eug (talk) 08:19, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Hi, now that Pleomorphism is a disambiguation page, I was wondering if we could get your help to WP:FIXDABLINKS. I've been over it, and I'm not entirely comfortable making the distinction, so I was hoping to get some expert help. This tool makes things easier. Thanks, --JaGatalk 18:13, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing the links! We really needed expert help on that one to get it right. Cheers! --JaGatalk 15:01, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

Your invitation to participate in a Wikimedia-approved survey in online behavior.

Hello, my name is Michael Tsikerdekis[1][2], currently involved as a student in full time academic research at Masaryk University. I am writing to you to kindly invite you to participate in an online survey about interface and online collaboration on Wikipedia. The survey has been reviewed and approved by the Wikimedia Foundation Research Committee.

I am contacting you because you were randomly selected from a list of active editors. The survey should take about 7 to 10 minutes to complete, and it is very straightforward.

Wikipedia is an open project by nature. Let’s create new knowledge for everyone! :-)

To take part in the survey please follow the link: (HTTPS).

Best Regards, --Michael Tsikerdekis (talk) 12:04, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

PS: The results from the research will become available online for everyone and will be published in an open access journal.

UPDATE: This is the second and final notification for participating in this study. Your help is essential for having concrete results and knowledge that we all can share. I would like to thank you for your time and as always for any questions, comments or ideas do not hesitate to contact me. PS: As a thank you for your efforts and participation in Wikipedia Research you will receive a Research Participation Barnstar after the end of the study. --Michael Tsikerdekis (talk) 12:25, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

7 Up: Addition of Theory

With respect to your point as to required sources for theories, I believe that Wikipedia needs reliable sources even for this. Otherwise, anyone could add anything they wished by merely calling it a theory. --Larry (talk) 15:07, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

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) 01:24, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Followup RFC to WP:RFC/AAT now in community feedback phase

Hello. As a participant in Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Abortion article titles, you may wish to register an opinion on its followup RFC, Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Abortion advocacy movement coverage, which is now in its community feedback phase. Please note that WP:RFC/AAMC is not simply a repeat of WP:RFC/AAT, and is attempting to achieve better results by asking a more narrowly-focused, policy-based question of the community. Assumptions based on the previous RFC should be discarded before participation, particularly the assumption that Wikipedia has or inherently needs to have articles covering generalized perspective on each side of abortion advocacy, and that what we are trying to do is come up with labels for that.

Nairobi County

Hi Eug. I've looked into it and all the edits at Nairobi (county) were by Nairobi123 so even though it was a copy/paste move to Nairobi County the license remains with the same user. I've reverted this now. These Kenyan County page moves are a bit of a mess! It remains the only hassle/reason why I'd want to apply for the admin role! SFB 10:46, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
