Tropical plants[edit]

Hello, How are you? I need your help. I thank you your help in the articles and I hope you help me again in future. I ask you: Can you find more people willing writing in tropical trees, genera and families? I ask you if you could enlarge some articles making better known this group of trees in Wikipedia, adding links to genera and families and writing information and asking people if they are interested in writing about topics as tropical trees articles, tropical forest articles or botanical or biodiversity articles. Do you know Wikipedia forums that could be interested about these type of articles? They are welcome too. I thank you very much.

I am from Spain and my mother language is not English language. Many country side areas, and Natural areas and Living beings are in Countries where population cannot collaborate with Wikipedia, but their Natural World and its highly economically valuable species are very important too in the human knowledge and developtment of the mankind. People should have information because these matters are important, not just a curiosity only. This unknow world is from Poles to ecuator, in unoccupied oceanic areas closely to Europe, in Deserts as Sahara, or whatever. But to me the main aim is to gather the abundant information disperse about living communities and living beings that have existed for millions of years because they are disappearing and in 20 years they will are not longer exist.

  • Hi, thank you very much by to be interested in Tropical flora. I hope in future you will write about this matter so unknow. You are right, the threats to biodiversity in China are formidable, and other Asian countries too!! I was looking for photos of genera and there are not photos neither. Best regards.

Greetings, To address your questions, I have had bad experiences with the automatic taxbox not letting me include information that is easily included in a regular taxbos. Unless it has changed, at one point automatic taxboxes where intended for use with palaeontology-related articles and not recommended for other taxa. This might have been the reason that they would not accept some fields. As regards the taxonomic issues with Monotrete, FishBase is usually the accepted authority regarding species lists and I have taken to using the FishBase lists even when there is uncertainty (as in COF and IUCN) rather than trying to include all possible lists, particularly in shorter articles. If you feel that the information on the taxonomic issues is sufficiently important, feel free to put it back in. Maybe with the changes recently in the classification of these fishes it would be a germane topic. That is the great thing about Wikipedia. Also, if you ever create a new article, go ahead and create the talk page to go with it. Best wishes Divingpetrel (talk) 23:37, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Lycodon Odishi[edit]

Hullo, I hope you don't mind my messaging you about this. But this appears to be your area of interest and expertise :) I came across this article in the papers today about a new species of snake named Lycodon odishi. Is this worth an article even though there's no mention in databases like reptarium.cz? Is the "Russian Journal of Herpetology" reputable? --Cpt.a.haddock (talk) 06:46, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

"Russian Journal of Herpetology" is fully reputable, although not quite "leading" as the article suggests. Lycodon odishi is probably just too recent to have been listed in reptarium.cz, which is updated every four months. Micromesistius (talk) 08:59, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Is this then worth an article now (perhaps with a caveat)? Does WP have procedures/guidelines/prerequisites for this? --Cpt.a.haddock (talk) 09:47, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
There is no clear guideline for reptiles. I would only create the article if I could get hold of the Mallik et al. article (probably one of the authors would be happy to send the pdf), or when the species is listed in reptarium.cz. Micromesistius (talk) 12:07, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

Raorchestes kaikatti[edit]

Hello again, Your edit of Raorchestes kaikatti mentions Raorchestes marki by mistake. I don't have access to the linked paper to fix this. Please check. I also believe that the paper mentions that the species is named after a herpetologist named Mark Wilkinson. Please include this titbit if so. --Cpt.a.haddock (talk) 10:06, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Concerning Extinct Species in Leiopelmatidae[edit]

Hi, thanks for the great work in Leiopelmatidae! I wanted to ask you, should we delete the mention of Notobatrachus I've hidden, or do you know of some sources that corroborate its placement within Leiopelmatidae, and not Ascaphidae?--Mr Fink (talk) 15:45, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Looks like there is no simple answer. Lisanfos places it in Leiopelmatidae but fossilworks does not assign it to any family. It seems that there no strong consensus either that Leiopelmatidae and Ascaphidae should be treated as separate families. Maybe it is best to mention that some sources place it in Leiopelmatidae?

Hi you recently deleted some material from malesian frog.

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "Rana vs Lithobates". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 21 September 2015.

Discussion relating to the mediation request is welcome at the case talk page. Thank you.
Message delivered by MediationBot (talk) on behalf of the Mediation Committee. 10:38, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Request for mediation accepted[edit]

The request for formal mediation of the dispute concerning Rana vs Lithobates, in which you were listed as a party, has been accepted by the Mediation Committee. The case will be assigned to an active mediator within two weeks, and mediation proceedings should begin shortly thereafter. Proceedings will begin at the case information page, Wikipedia:Requests for mediation/Rana vs Lithobates, so please add this to your watchlist. Formal mediation is governed by the Mediation Committee and its Policy. The Policy, and especially the first two sections of the "Mediation" section, should be read if you have never participated in formal mediation. For a short guide to accepted cases, see the "Accepted requests" section of the Guide to formal mediation. You may also want to familiarise yourself with the internal Procedures of the Committee.

As mediation proceedings begin, be aware that formal mediation can only be successful if every participant approaches discussion in a professional and civil way, and is completely prepared to compromise. Please contact the Committee if anything is unclear.

For the Mediation Committee, TransporterMan (TALK) 13:23, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Distribution maps[edit]

Hello! Could you please have a look at these animal distribution maps I've created and tell me if they are of acceptable quality or if it would be better if I left the task for someone experienced to work on?

Hi, thanks for your work so far! Can you do me a favour though and always add every entry you do to the main list here as well as the entries page, regardless if yet approved or not as that's the master list of all articles being done. It's just veyr time consuming for me to be judging the articles, trying to contribute myself and chasing up what people have done and filling it out for people each time. So if you can take care of that this would be a great help, there's some part filled out ones underneath so you just need to add country, article name and then you username.

Invitation from Wikipedia Asian Month 2016[edit]

Thanks for partipating Wikipedia Asian Month last year, and I hope you enjoy it. Last year, more than 7,000 articles contribute to Wikipedia in 43 languages in Wikipedia Asian Month, making us one of the largest event on Wikipedia. We will organize this event again in upcoming November, and would like to invite you join us again.

This year, we are lowering down the standards that you only need to create 4 (Four) articles to receive a postcard (new design), and articles only need to be more than 3,000 bytes and 300 words. We are also improving our postcard sending process, e.g. making the postcards right now, and collecting the address after the event ends without waiting other languges.

Wikipedians who create the most articles on each Wikipedia will be honored as "Wikipedia Asian Ambassadors". We will send you both digital copy, and a paper copy of the Ambassador certificate.

Thank you for considering! --AddisWang (talk)

Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

If you wish to participate in the 2016 election, please review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 22:08, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Espadarana copyright concern[edit]

Some of the material you included in the above article was copied from http://www.mapress.com/zootaxa/2009/f/zt02100p097.pdf, a copyright web page. Copying text directly from a source is a copyright violation. Unfortunately, for copyright reasons, the content had to be removed. I realize it is difficult to paraphrase technical material, but an attempt must be made. Please leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions or if you think I made a mistake. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 14:57, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

@Diannaa: The text was not directly copied but was already paraphrased. Now it is even more so. It is difficult to know where the limit is when the technical accuracy should be maintained. Micromesistius (talk) 09:26, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
The new version is okay from a copyright point of view. Thanks for taking the time to do that. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 13:20, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
