Spider articles[edit]

Thanks for creating some new spider articles! We need more editors interested in this group. The World Spider Catalog is generally regarded as the definitive secondary source for the taxonomy of spiders between the family and species level, so we would normally source lists of species to the WSC. (If you register with the WSC, you can access a lot of spider-related sources via their website.)

If I can help or advise in any way, don't hesitate to ask at my talk page. Peter coxhead (talk) 11:05, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for supporting me with the spiders. Can I access the info in the WSC without registering? Could you help me create the genera and species of the Linyphiidae family? --Seacactus 13 (talk) 16:16, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

See response on my talk page. Peter coxhead (talk) 22:26, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

The category name is a bit misleading, but [[Category:Animals described in ...]] is only for animal species. If you follow through the category you'll see that e.g. Category:Animals described in 1925 is a subcategory of Category:Species described in 1925. Perhaps there should be categories for when genera were erected, but there don't seem to be. Peter coxhead (talk) 09:38, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

So I shouldn't put when genera were described in the categories.--Seacactus 13 (talk) 14:13, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

No, only species. Peter coxhead (talk) 22:21, 22 February 2016 (UTC)


Just to note that there can never be only one subspecies, either of an animal or a plant. When a taxonomist marks off a population within the species X y as subspecies z that automatically creates the "nominate" subspecies y. The type of the species becomes the type of the nominate subspecies and a type has to be designated for the new subspecies. The World Spider Catalog is misleading in the way it lists subspecies. Tropicos is better; see e.g. this entry.

The nomenclature of ranks below species is different in zoology and botany (see Trinomial nomenclature). Animal subspecies are given a simple trinomial: X y z. The names of plant subspecies must always have a "connecting form": X y subsp. z for a subspecies, X y var. z for a variety, etc. Peter coxhead (talk) 12:29, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. I think I had the plant one wrong.--Seacactus 13 (talk) 14:12, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Metec–TKH Cycling Team p/b Mantel [edit]

Why did you move the Metec–TKH Cycling Team p/b Mantel to Metec–TKH Continental Cyclingteam?

  • The UCI states it's, Metec–TKH Cycling Team p/b Mantel, as per UCI
  • Procyclingstats deems it to be Metec–TKH Cycling Team p/b Mantel too PCS - please explain.. XyZAn (talk) 11:27, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

I moved it to the 2016 name, wjich is Metec-TKH Continental Cyclingteam according to pcs, and having p/b Mantel in the title is unnecessary.--Seacactus 13 (talk) 14:33, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Reverted your move of Color Code–whatever[edit]

S, after you cite a source with the new name, please try the move again, but use a straight apostrophe, not the curly glyph. OK? Dicklyon (talk) 21:36, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

ok, Sorry.


Here and here you asked why I made the edits I did. Perhaps you should look at the links I changed -- Córdoba and Aalst. Neither of those links to an article that is relevant to the context in which they appear. The links to Córdoba, Spain and Aalst, Belgium that I left, however, are relevant. Now that you know the reason, I hope you will agree that your reversion of these two edits was imprudent. Also, please see WP:SPECIFICLINK. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 00:01, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Oh, sorry. I was confused by your actions. I thought that you linked thgem to the disambig pages and that they were already correct. Sorry. I was merely confused:(--Seacactus 13 (talk) 00:02, 27 May 2016 (UTC)[edit]

Sorry, but I cannot as I am not an administrator. Please ask one who can do this.--Seacactus 13 (talk) 21:03, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

NPP / AfC[edit]

Hi. Just a reminder that in just over a week at Wikimania there's going to be a cross-Wiki discussion about the systems of control of new pages. This is a round-table rather than a presentation or a lecture. On the agenda are reforms to the new article reviewing systems and ways to help new users better understand our content policies. If you are going to Italy and would like to take part, please check out the conference schedule, and I look forward to seeing you there. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 18:06, 14 June 2016 (UTC)
