Disambiguation link notification for July 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Planotortrix puffini, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Muttonbird.

Liobagrus somjinensis[edit]

I see that you removed the Coren Search Bot notice from Liobagrus somjinensis, but I do not see any sign that the issues were addressed. It looks to me like a WP:Close paraphrase. What did you conclude?--S Philbrick(Talk) 13:05, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

It is a technical description mostly based on the original description of the species. It is hard to really rephrase a description like that without turning to original research. Ruigeroeland (talk) 15:55, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Ways to improve Heterochorista rostrata[edit]

Hi, I'm Matheweditking. Ruigeroeland, thanks for creating Heterochorista rostrata!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Hey why dont u expand this

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. Matheweditking (talk) 16:26, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Mocis frugalis[edit]

Hello Ruigeroeland, the image 'Mocis frugalis Noctuidae Erebidae, Catocalinae.jpg' is about a Mocis frugalis (see also filename) and is also shown in the article Mocis frugalis. I removed that picture from the taxobox about another species; the Mocis proverai. You restored that picture there. Please explain. - Robotje (talk) 11:10, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi, you are absolutely right, but as the article explains: both species are exactley the same in appearance and the two are only identifiable by microscopic research. Hence: the picture can also be used for the proverai article. I did add an image caption to explain the other species is figured. I hope that makes sense. Ruigeroeland (talk) 11:13, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
After adding that extra text it's OK with me. - Robotje (talk) 11:47, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

{{Lepidoptera}}[edit]

Hi, just today I have seen that you removed the above template from all of the Lepidoptera related articles. I would like to know the purpose behind it because it does exist in various articles on mammals. Like for example, majority of bats and shrews have them: Gobi big brown bat and Etruscan shrew, and I followed their example. Or project Lepidoptera is different in that regard? If so, why were there {{Lepidoptera}}, {{Coleoptera}} being developed long before I began using them???--Mishae (talk) 16:57, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

The examples you mention have a template linking to related species, while the Lepidoptera template links to the families. The template was made to browse between families, not from species to families. Ruigeroeland (talk) 18:45, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Here what was my idea behind it: see, user who doesn't want to read about the families, can click on that template which will transfer him to which ever sub family he/she wants. So, which template can I use if any? Because project mammals uses them and they definitely were developed for a reason (otherwise they would have been nominated for deletion). As far as you saying goes: The template was made to browse between families, not from species to families. Hmm, isn't that what Gobi big brown bat look like? Like, its a species which is linked to subfamily and with Etruscan shrew its species that are linked to families through order template. Same thing with Bearded seal and Wild boars they are also species with order templates. So, my Lepidoptera and Coleoptera templates are orders as well, not families.--Mishae (talk) 22:33, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
There is a difference, the mammal templates list all species within the orders, families and genera, while the Lepidoptera template only lists the families, not the species. Listing the Lepidoptera template is not wrong, but it is not that useful in my opinion. For example: it would be the same as listing a template about the countries of Africa under a village in Nigeria. Ruigeroeland (talk) 06:49, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
So there is no template to use when it comes to Lepidoptera? Thanks for explanation.--Mishae (talk) 22:38, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Not really. You made templates for the species within a genus some time ago, that would be a better solution. However: Since taxanomy of insects changes so much, it would be hard to keep these up to date. I think it would be wise not to add templates to species articles. There is enough other work to do besides making and adding these templates. Cheers! Ruigeroeland (talk) 06:48, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello again![edit]

Hello! Figured I'd let you know that I intend to do some serious background/clean-up related work on Lepidoptera-related articles again, albeit in-depth enough that it's probably going to stretch over a few months. (Might do some content work too, if I feel up for it, but not as structurized as I intend to do the gnomish stuff).

I've made myself a "nice" checklist of stuff to check while combing through every article in the Lepidopterology category (in other words, everything in Category:Lepidoptera + a few hundred lepidopterists), but I figured that as you're basically the nr. 1 guy when it comes to Lepidoptera-related work here, you could perhaps look through it and see if there are any obvious things I've forgotten to list there, especially because if so, I'd rather find out now, when I only have a dozen articles to back-track through, rather than later on, when that's a few hundred to over a thousand. User:AddWittyNameHere/Lepidoptera_to-do_list is where the list can be found, by the way. Have a nice day, AddWittyNameHere (talk) 00:56, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Wow! That is very much work you are getting yourself into. You might add to do the list: Add category 'Moths described in xxxx' (add year) or (if it is a butterfly), 'Insects described in xxxx' if these categories are missing. Furthermore, I think you pretty much covered it all...! Ruigeroeland (talk) 06:34, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, it's a shitload (pardon my French) of work, but it needs to be done anyway, and if I'm going to do it, may as well do it well and structured, rather than the an-article-here-and-and-article-there-in-between-vandal-fighting approach I've been using so far. Will note that specific point down (I do believe I have a general "check categories"-point in it, but those are exactly the kind of categories I'd have overlooked. Speaking of categories, the Lepidoptera categorization structure really should be cleaned up sometime. No good reason for the category "Lists of moths and butterflies of the United States" to be present in all of the following trees:
  • Butterflies and moths by region=>Lists of butterflies by location;
  • Butterflies and moths by region=>Lists of moths by location;
  • Butterflies and moths by region=>Butterflies and moths of North America;
    • Butterflies and moths by region=>Butterflies and moths of North America=>Butterflies of the United States;
  • Butterflies=>Butterflies by country=>Butterflies of the United States;
  • Lepidoptera by country=>Butterflies by country=>Butterflies of the United States;
  • Lists of Lepidoptera=>Lists of butterflies=>Lists of butterflies by location;
  • Lists of Lepidoptera=>Lists of moths=>Lists of moths by location;
  • Moths=>Lists of moths=>Lists of moths by location.

One of the more spurious examples, sure, but it does show how messy the category structure is, eh? Some specific articles are even worse, from top of my head. Oh well, let's start with multi-month (ironically almost mistyped that as multi-moth) project #1 before thinking about projects #2 and #3. AddWittyNameHere (talk) 06:58, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, the categories are a mess. I usually only add the taxonomy cat (family, subfamily, tribe or genus) and the year cat myself, but others have added various others over time, and all use other formats. Ruigeroeland (talk) 07:02, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Crambidae coverage.[edit]

Greetings, Ruigeroeland! I'm just notifying you now, so you don't panic ;) when you see the latest crambid pages; I've made them ahead of time for the next week and a few days. I plan to take a wikibreak through until the second week of September, but I didn't want things to fall behind. There should be plenty of time to get them taken care of. :) See you soon!

Your sources[edit]

Hi there. I've removed large sections of two of your most recent edits, to Drosophantis and Elachista ciliigera. I looked at the references cited, and they didn't support what you had added. Did I miss something, or are you making this stuff up? Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 00:30, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

The source DOES contain that info, but you have to look up the genus in the database. It is not possible to link to the page containing the info.Ruigeroeland (talk) 07:47, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
I did look it up. It wasn't there. Magnolia677 (talk) 09:53, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Regarding Drosophantis: the synonyms list type locality: Ceylon [Sri Lanka] and type locality: China, Taiwan, so that accounts for those two. You are right, I did not add a ref for Australia, so I did now. Regarding Elachista ciliigera: I now provided a ref for the state record. You are right mothphotographersgroup did not contain the info I listed. However: I did not use the ref for the distribution, but placed it after the authority, so I was not technically claiming the info came from there. I hope you are satisfied that I am not 'making stuff up'. You are right that I did not properly reference everything though. Ruigeroeland (talk) 10:03, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. Take care. Magnolia677 (talk) 00:05, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Circoxena ditrocha[edit]

Sorry, just realised that I wasn't paying attention and accidentally (and anonymously) undid your revert of my edit, which is terribly rude. To explain my reasoning for using the URL I am, though, it's because the hdl.handle.net permalink is *the* guaranteed permanent link, and is listed as such on the document's record page. Any other link can change if the domain name changes (which has happened in the past and can't be ruled out in the future) but the handle.net link will stay the same - it's akin to a DOI. --Zeborah (talk) 23:21, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Synonymy[edit]

Hi Ruigeroeland, I saw you created this page. In the very first version of it, a complete synonymy is already present, without mentioning any source for it (none of the three references cited provides information on synonymy). It's been 4 years and a day since you created the page but can you remember where you got the synonymy from. I'd like to use that information to clarify some confusion about the names Atteva pustulella, Atteva punctella (not a valid name), Caloptilia elongella and Caloptilia punctella (the latter being a synonym) on the Dutch Wikipedia. Cheers,  Wikiklaas  07:51, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Taxobox species names[edit]

Hi. I see you've created a phenomenal number of pages, and they're generally excellent, but you seem to be cutting and pasting from a template that has a serious problem - in the taxoboxes, you are not italicizing the species names in the second line of the taxobox, which creates the header - e.g., "| name = Acleris abietana" instead of "| name = Acleris abietana". If you could please fix your template so future pages you create have the names properly italicized, that would be much appreciated. Dyanega (talk) 01:26, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

Eublemma dichroma --redirect--> Tegostoma bipartalis[edit]

Ruigeroeland -- Do you know why this apparent Erebid/former Noctuid moth species is set to redirect to that Crambid moth species?

It is listed as such at Afro Moths, see [4]. Although not common, I have seen such misplacements in families before.. Afro Moths is normally quite good, so I would trust it in this case. Ruigeroeland (talk) 18:42, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Suggestion.[edit]

Greetings, Ruigeroeland! I've been giving this some thought, for a little while now; perhaps when you're listing the synonyms of the moth species during expansion of the articles, you could leave the redirecting of the names to me? That might free your workload up a bit, and I could contribute a little more to the project. Thoughts? Heading for the 20's, living in the Wild Wild Wikipedia! (talk) 00:12, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Wilhelmina, we could try that, but not sure if that would make much difference. There are not that many most of the time and I can redirect them in a short amount of time. There might be other ways to help out some more but these would take more time when you are creating the articles. One thing you could consider doing is not redirecting species in monotypic genera, but really adding the species to the page like I do now. There might be other things you could do.. I will think about it! Cheers

ref.links Afromoths[edit]

Hello Ruigeroeland

I'm not sure if you noticed it before: the page URL of the afromoths pages changes every few months (at every update). Genus pages do not seem to change the "number" (or less often) There seems to be a new feature with a permanent link. Sample: the pages of Omiodes niphoessa (Ghesquière, 1942) that you edited yesterday has two links, one with the number (that seems to change) http://www.afromoths.net/species/show/12967 and on the same page you find a button permanent link that redirects : http://www.afromoths.net/species_by_code/OMIONIPH

Quite easy to use that one. Just "right button click" + "copy link". I'll use that "permanent link" in the future, hopefully it will stay valid for a longer time.

Best regards Mike User:Tonton Bernardo

Ah, great! I will use that from now on! Ruigeroeland (talk) 12:58, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

You are amazing![edit]

I have been editing in Lepidoptera for a number of years but have just come across all of the contributions that you have been making with your photographs. You are amazing! But I would like to know is if you have been able to insert your photographs into all of the Lepidoptera articles that they would apply to. I guess what I'm asking is if you need any assistance in getting these photos into the articles. In addition, the notes that you make with your photographs probably would be better appreciated and referenced if they were in the body of the articles. Is there a way I can help you with this?

  Bfpage |leave a message  22:14, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi there, and thanks for your kind message. However, these are not my photographs at all, I only uploaded photo's I found with the appropriate licence to wikimedia commons and added them to the proper articles on wikipedia. Regarding notes: I dont think we can use them in the body of the article text, since we can only add referenced information..! Cheers! Ruigeroeland (talk) 07:12, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

About your (non)participation in the January 2012 SOPA vote[edit]

Hi Ruigeroeland. I am Piotr Konieczny (User:Piotrus), you may know me as an active content creator (see my userpage), but I am also a professional researcher of Wikipedia. Recently I published a paper (downloadable here) on reasons editors participated in Wikipedia's biggest vote to date (January 2012 WP:SOPA). I am now developing a supplementary paper, which analyzes why many editors did not take part in that vote. Which is where you come in :) You are a highly active Wikipedian (50th to be exact), and you were active back during the January 2012 discussion/voting for the SOPA, yet you did not chose to participate in said vote. I'd appreciate it if you could tell me why was that so? For your convenience, I prepared a short survey at meta, which should not take more than a minute of your time. I would dearly appreciate you taking this minute; not only as a Wikipedia researcher but as a fellow content creator and concerned member of the community (I believe your answers may help us eventually improve our policies and thus, the project's governance). PS. If you chose to reply here (on your userpage), please WP:ECHO me. Thank you! --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 16:58, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Moth found in place.[edit]

Though the plural confusion and persistently passive voice makes the grammar part of my brain burn (who keeps finding this moth?), I'll concede defeat, because the thought of edit warring over, or even agreeably fixing, 50,000 articles for consistency makes every part of my brain burn. And I see this bad habit extends far beyond the moth part of Wikipedia. No chance.

Aside from that relatively minor point, thanks and congratulations for your proliferance! InedibleHulk (talk) 15:03, April 2, 2015 (UTC)

Haha, well: I am not a native speaker and started out using: 'it is known from'. This phrase is used in scientific literature, so it should be okay, but other users did not agree with that. I then changed it to: 'it is found in', which they suggested at the time. You could choose to say 'inhabits' or something similar, but 'lives in' doesn't feel right to me when talking about a species as a whole (instead of an individual). I don't understand the plural confusion though. It refers to species, which is not plural (at least not in my language). Ruigeroeland (talk) 17:23, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, "species" is singular to me, too. But it describes a category, which is found in/known from intangible discussion and filing systems. The name represents many individual physical moths, which live somewhere, regardless of whether some outsider spots them.
So the first two sentences are fine, clearly about the classification. Then we talk about the moths themselves, but "it" implies we're still talking about the taxonomic notion. That's found everywhere zoologists have agreed to stick with Latin (i.e., everywhere).
Not a huge deal, though. There are far worse problems on Wikipedia, which wouldn't require 50,000 identical solutions. I'll worry about (some of) those instead. For all the effort you've put into the Lepidoptera part of town, you've earned authority here. I just stumbled in by hitting "Random article".
Keep up the good work! InedibleHulk (talk) 19:48, April 2, 2015 (UTC)
actually I prefer also it is known from

mostly because most species are not yet well researched and some territories; countries, etc. not at all ! So, somehow, if i write: it is found in Easter Islands - its got something of "definitely" . When writing it's known from Easter Islands' its more like: who knows, where else it will be found in the future ! cheers User:Tonton Bernardo

Great! Saves me the time of having to report them at SPI. Cheers and thanks Ruigeroeland (talk) 12:14, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

On a related note, the last several times you've opened a new SPI under this farm, you've done so with the single word WP:DUCK, and each time, the reviewing admin (Vanjagenije) has asked for more information. Maybe you need to start filing fuller SPIs. To be fair, it should be obvious to anyone familiar with the case, but Vanja closes a lot of SPIs and may not be able to remember the details of each of the farms. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 11:29, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I understand what you are saying, but to be honest, I like to spend my time doing actual productive work on Wikipedia. Since this guy is so persistent and the same cases come up on a daily basis (although he has had a break of several months), I was hoping that they can be solved by investing a minimum amount of time. I haven't really looked into the requirements to raise an SPI case, but was hoping this minimal info would be enough. If not, would you be able to provide me with a copy and paste template to report this guy? That would help me a lot....! Ruigeroeland (talk) 11:36, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
WikiDan61 is right. Please, when you open the case next time, include a short explanation of the case, because I can't really remember every case by name, there are thousands. You don't have to cite diffs, especially when edits are deleted, but at least explain the similarity between the sock and the master. You should not wait for me to ask for more information, you should include more information as soon as you open the case. If you do not have time to report the sockpuppet, you don't have to, editing Wikipedia is voluntary. But, I am also a volunteer like you, so don't expect me to spend more time at the case just because you don't want to spend more time. Vanjagenije (talk) 11:39, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
Will do Vanjagenije and WikiDan61. I was not aware of the amount of sockpuppets active on Wikipedia, so was under the impression that this case would be known by most of you active in battling them. Sorry for the inconvenience..! Ruigeroeland (talk) 11:43, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Hypatima procax, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mahé (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

LepIndex refs[edit]

Hi,

Because you are editing on an industrial scale, I'd like to suggest that your citations to the LepIndex be more precise. Otherwise I wouldn't trouble.

That is (for example): http://www.nhm.ac.uk/research-curation/research/projects/lepindex/search/detail.dsml?TaxonNo=103369.0

instead of: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/research-curation/research/projects/lepindex/search/index.dsml

Advantages include easier navigation to the information, and perhaps quality control on your extensive (and appreciated) work, for example Neofaculta_taigana, which I was unable to find in LepIndex.

This should be a fairly easy copy-and-paste for you as you look up the species in LepIndex.

Hi Ggpauly, thanks for your message, and I will do that in future. I started to add this ref to articles, because another user used it in her template for article creation of moth species and I thought it would be a good thing to standardize the new articles. However, I see the trouble you are referring to. Cheers! Ruigeroeland (talk) 06:25, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
