Edit summaries[edit]

Information.svg Hello. Please don't forget to provide an edit summary. While your edits as far as I've seen have been very nice, it's a little confusing at first glance if there's no edit summary. Thanks, Pyrospirit (talk · contribs) 20:00, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

hello friend[edit]

come back to our city —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:53, 19 December 2007 (UTC)


Hi, I'm going to have to roll back all your categorisations. We only include the most specific categories, not the more generic ones. i.e. if a plant is in Category:Weinmannii, it shouldn't also be in Category:Cunoniaceae, Category:Oxalidales, etc. Hesperian 01:22, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Parent categories[edit]

Please stop adding parent categories to articles that don't need them. The reason, for example that Coast Douglas-fir is not in Category:Trees of the United States is that it is already in the appropriate state categories ("child" categories) that are subcategories of the U.S. category. Thanks. Katr67 (talk) 22:24, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

degrees, minutes, seconds[edit]


I'm not sure how I feel about you adding coordinates to locations all over the place, but rather than get into that, let's start with something easy: "34°24′S" does not equal "34.24°S". Do you need me to explain why, or was that just a typo? Hesperian 23:24, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

My point is that the 24 in "34°24′S" refers to 24 minutes of arc, so 34°24′S = 34.4°S. By converting it to 34.24°S you are introducing an error. Hesperian 23:27, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Trees of New Zealand[edit]

Thanks for telling me. The pohutukawa is updated. Greetings PerPlex from the Neo-Norwegian Wikipedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:25, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Plantings in other countries[edit]

I am a bit concerned about the way you continually add information to articles concerning 'plantings' 'introductions' etc to other countries when they are only references to individual trees in botanic gardens and the like. The end result of this sort of approach would be endless listings of trees in botanic gardens all over the world. "intoductions" suggests the plant is very popular or even naturalised, but this doesn't seem to be the case with the info you are adding. And when you do make reference to a pdf, the title of the pdf and/or its parent publication should be used, not anything else. Kahuroa (talk) 19:52, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Translation of it:Utente:Jaguarlaser[edit]

Hello. I have translated your userpage on as you requested. If you want, I can also try to translate the babelboxes, cause all the codes you placed in yor page are "wrong"...I mean, they link pages that on don't exist. By the way, can I also place a it-0? katiusha (tell me) 23:10, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Ok, let's translate the babelboxes too :) I inform you that maybe I could not make them exactly identical, anyway I'll keep the info. katiusha (tell me) 23:24, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the compliments...I only am a little Wikipedia:WikiGnome (if you prefer there is also es:Wikipedia:Wikinomo). I'll translate your babel this afternoon cause now in Italy it's relly late and I'm almosto going to bed. katiusha (tell me) 23:37, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Just have a look at your Italian page and tell me if you like it :) katiusha (tell me) 13:05, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
If you feel really in debt...I think you could invite me to spend some days in Mexico :P I'm joking og course! What's the problem with the babelboxes? I didn't understand your question. You mean the codes? But on or here? On it.w you have to go to it:Wikipedia:Babelfish and then you copy and paste the codes that are on that page...of course you have to change the words (on the examples they talk about gardening but you can obviously write whatever you want). If you mean here, you have to go to Wikipedia:Userboxes and then have a look at the template at the bottom and search the topic you're interested in.
Or did you mean the code do make a new babel? In that case I don't know, but I think if you write on the address bar the adress of the babel (es: User:UBX/male) you can view it, then you clik on edit this page and you'll see the code... I hope that helps you. If not, call me again and I'll try to explane it better again. katiusha (tell me) 14:23, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Jaguarlaser! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 3,300 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

Category:Native crops by country[edit]

Hey there, I'm wondering if you might have any idea what happened to all of the articles from Category:Native crops by country. There is not a single article to be found in any of its 15 sub-cats. (Please reply at my talk page. Thanks.) Cgingold (talk) 09:00, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Carnivorous plant categorisation[edit]

Please see Category:Carnivorous plants of Australasia for the definition of Australasia used by the carnivorous plant wikiproject. mgiganteus1 (talk) 00:12, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Placing five Nepenthes species from New Guinea in Category:Carnivorous plants of the Malesian region is highly misleading, since the vast majority of Nepenthes species (over 100) are native to Malesia (not to mention other carnivorous plants). I'm also not fond of the (at least partial) overlap with Category:Carnivorous plants of Asia. Your placement of articles in Category:Carnivorous plants of Australasia went against the definition of Australasia specified on the category page, as explained above. I'm not necessarily against changes to the categorisation system, but this should be done through discussion at Wikipedia:WikiProject Carnivorous plants so that we can work towards a consensus. I would personally favour a subcategorisation based on the major islands of the Malay Archipelago (Borneo, Sumatra, Java, Sulawesi, New Guinea, Philippines, and so on). mgiganteus1 (talk) 18:39, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
And New Guinea *is* included under Asia by the World Geographical Scheme for Recording Plant Distributions; see [1]. mgiganteus1 (talk) 18:55, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Global account[edit]

Hi Jaguarlaser! As a Steward I'm involved in the upcoming unification of all accounts organized by the Wikimedia Foundation (see m:Single User Login finalisation announcement). By looking at your account, I realized that you don't have a global account yet. In order to secure your name, I recommend you to create such account on your own by submitting your password on Special:MergeAccount and unifying your local accounts. If you have any problems with doing that or further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me on my talk page. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 18:18, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
