To the best of my knowledge, there are some inaccurate details on the page. Keeping in mind the interest of Wikipedia (to have the most updated, accurate information) we have set out to make sure that the these interests are filled. I would be happy to send you the draft of what we had, and you are welcome to make adjustments where necessary, but we would like to have the page corrected and updated with the changes.

How to protect a Wikipedia page ?[edit]

I want to protect a Wikipedia page such that no one can edit it how to do it and what are the steps involved in it Thekingofrings (talk) 06:25, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

See response on my talk page. — JJMC89(T·E·C) 07:15, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability 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, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Definition of habitat[edit]

Aside from the fact that I fail to see what isn't objective about "held in captivity", it's a fact. They are not living there out of the own free will, are they? Anyway, my last edit changing "habitats" to tanks was also rejected? Please explain why, especially given my justification in light of the accepted definition of habitat? In its current form "habitat" is misleading as it implies some for, of natural environment. Thank you Wuunce (talk) 22:43, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

I already answered you, Habitat is the correct verbiage to explain the location that animals live in, in a zoological setting. i.e., An environment created for an animal to live in. VVikingTalkEdits 22:48, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
There is normally more than one definition of a word. VVikingTalkEdits 22:49, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
Our own opinions are irrelevant. We follow the sources and the source for this information calls them tanks repeatedly, as does the LA times. SmartSE (talk) 23:02, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
LA Times [2]. Third paragraph down. Habitat is the most widely used verbiage for an animal's living space at zoological facilities. VVikingTalkEdits 23:05, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
That's not the source cited though is it and they use tanks 5 times vs habitat twice. You're now at 3RR btw. SmartSE (talk) 23:08, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
I know, I wasn't going to revert again. What I am saying is in the industry it is Habitat, yes it is 5 vs two in my example of the LA Times, however I was showing that even the LA Times states habitat. That is the industry standard.
Isn't it nice to be the last one to be able to edit, you should have stopped because of WP:BRD. I opened a section on the talk page. Please us it.VVikingTalkEdits 23:10, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

Thank you both for the lively debate. I don't know when I will be back on like I was today. I had an oddly slow day today. You know my take on the matter now do what the community thinks is best. VVikingTalkEdits 23:30, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
