Hello, and welcome to my talk page; how can I help you? Please put your new post at the bottom of the page, and if you are a new editor, please remember to sign it with 4 of these "~". If you are talking about an article, please blue link the title of it. Thanks.

I have been contributing since the summer of 2007, but there are still many aspects of WP I know nothing or almost nothing about, so I am always interested in helpful suggestions. Thanks!

Fabulous work[edit]

I am sitting in your presentation at the Wiki NYC Conference. Fabulous work on gastropods. Thank you. :)--Jimbo Wales (talk) 21:01, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Hi Susan![edit]

Really nice to know you're here and looking out for our molluscs. Much better hands than mine. Well, my time as a contributor on Wikipedia was very short. I thought I'd help out the pretty sparse Wikipedia pages on some local nudibranchs, since that's where a lot of beginners turn to first for information, BUT it turned out I was really more of a menace than a help! Eeek, the pages got deleted, then restored, so embarassing! So after that experience I decided to leave contributing the text to my betters and just contribute a few photos. ;-) - Robin — Preceding unsigned comment added by ANudibranchMom (talkcontribs) 00:21, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

I am sorry you had an unpleasant experience, but your heart was in the right place. There's lots of great work that you could do here without running afoul of the guidelines. I could even talk you through stuff on the phone if that would help. I should explain that I used to be very active on here, but now most of my time goes into iNaturalist.

Hello there[edit]

Hey Susan, how have you been? I'll try and submit Amphidromus for a GA review. I'll be working on it in the next weeks, so feel free to join the battle =D --Daniel Cavallari (talk) 12:17, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

Hello Daniel, It is always very nice to hear from you, and I am glad that you are OK. I am OK too, and I will do whatever I can to help with this GA process. Please remind me if I forget. I am currently working with Sylvia van Leeuwen, a Dutch citizen scientist. We are about to re-sumbit a big paper to the Dutch journal Vita Malacologica. The paper reports the marine mollusk results of the Caribbean expedition she and I went on 2 years ago, to the little island of Sint Eustatius. I think the paper will be accepted this time around, and I hope the peer reviewers do not demand too much extra work, as this paper has been quite a huge amount of work already. Anyway, best of luck with the GA -- it will not be nearly as difficult as an FA attempt. Best, Invertzoo (talk) 13:05, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for quality articles such as Laevistrombus canarium, Kerry slug and Love dart, performed in collaboration, for routine cleanup, for improvements such as for The Cave, - Susan, aka The Snail Lady, I can only repeat (16 March 2009, 4 August 2010, one day after me): you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Your GA nomination of Amphidromus[edit]

The article Amphidromus you nominated as a good article has passed Symbol support vote.svg; see Talk:Amphidromus for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already been on the main page as an "In the news" or "Did you know" item, you can nominate it to appear in Did you know. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Chiswick Chap -- Chiswick Chap (talk) 15:02, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

We did it! =D Here is our brand new GA! Susan, would you be so kind as to check the article for odd writing and stuff for a last time? Thank you in advance! --Daniel Cavallari (talk) 17:23, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
Wow, that is such good news Daniel! Yes I will read through it to see if it seems smooth. I just got back last night from three weeks in Southern California, so I am a bit jet-lagged right now, but this is the kind of task I can tackle. :) Invertzoo (talk) 19:20, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
I went through it once but I will go through it again in a few days when I am less jet-lagged. Invertzoo (talk) 20:35, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
UPDATE: OK, I have done my best. Hope you like it. :) Invertzoo (talk) 20:14, 2 October 2017 (UTC)
THank you so much =)! --Daniel Cavallari (talk) 00:39, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

Merger discussion for Cymatium lotorium with Lotoria lotoria at Talk:Cymatium lotorium#Merge with Lotoria lotoria[edit]


Articles that you have been involved in editing—Cymatium lotorium and Lotoria lotoria created by robot is now discussing in Talk:Cymatium lotorium#Merge with Lotoria lotoria. The articels have been proposed for merging. If you are interested, please participate. Thank you. Tomchiukc (talk) 14:18, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

You are correct about that, and a previous change (a merge in the opposite direction) carried out by bot was incorrect. I have attempted to change the necessary pages to reflect the correct name of the species. However, I did not realize at first that this meant it was a double redirect back again to a previous situation, so I was not clear about how best to carry this out. I think I lost the edit history on the main article, and the talk pages are not sorted out yet. Invertzoo (talk) 11:02, 3 June 2018 (UTC)
