If you are interested... illustration needed[edit]

Hi! I noticed that you were the artist who made the award-winning heart illustration, File:Heart diagram-en.svg. Could I talk you into using those skills to make one or two more illustrations? I am wanting to acquire an illustration of the sublingua (article coming tonight or tomorrow) and tongue of a lemur. I have illustrations you can work from, but all are still under copyright. I'm guessing that if you can make a detailed heart, these illustrations should be nothing. The basic ideas can be found in this source, particularly figures 2 and 5, which are the tongue and "under-tongue" (sublingua) of a ring-tailed lemur. Having a good illustration or two for this bizarre and poorly understood feature would be very valuable. Would you be up for it? – VisionHolder « talk » 04:05, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Sounds interesting. Perhaps sometime this weekend or next week I might have some free time ;) ZooFari (talk) 05:15, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Sounds wonderful. If it doesn't work out, I can put the request up for the graphics lab. But given your interest in animals, I thought this might be right up your alley. Just keep me in the loop on your progress.  :-) – VisionHolder « talk » 07:14, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Also, no pressure, but if you can get an illustration done before next Wednesday, I will include it in the DYK nomination and add you for DYK credit. Again, if you don't have time, just let me know. – VisionHolder « talk » 04:58, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Update: I have added the old illustrations (from 1918) to the article temporarily. These illustrations are in the public domain, but only for the U.S., so they are not on Commons. Just keep me posted on whether or not you can make better illustrations. If you would prefer, I can take the request to the Graphic Lab's Illustration Workshop. Otherwise, I'm just looking for something comparable to these images in SVG. We may soon have up-close photos of the structure to provide coloring information. At this point, I would assume that the primary tongue is pink and the sublingua is off-white or cream in color. I can add the lines and numbers for labeling. Either way, thanks! – VisionHolder « talk » 17:57, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of box turtle species[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of box turtle species has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This article is an illogical combination of two seperate turtle species.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Science lovers wanted!

Hi! I'm serving as the wikipedian-in-residence at the Smithsonian Institution Archives until June! One of my goals as resident, is to work with Wikipedians and staff to improve content on Wikipedia about people who have collections held in the Archives - most of these are scientists who held roles within the Smithsonian and/or federal government. I thought you might like to participate since you are interested in the sciences! Sign up to participate here and dive into articles needing expansion and creation on our to-do list. Feel free to make a request for images or materials at the request page, and of course, if you share your successes at the outcomes page you will receive the SIA barnstar! Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to your participation! Sarah (talk) 18:28, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

You signed up for WikiProject User Rehab

Hi there, I'm RDN1F. It's come to my attention that you've signed up for WikiProject Rehab, but since that time the project has retired. I've decided to take it upon myself to rejuvenate the project - but I could do with your help. If you are still willing to help mentor (or even give me a hand in bringing this project back!) leave a message on my talk page

Orphaned non-free media (File:International Scout and Guide Fellowship.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:International Scout and Guide Fellowship.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:02, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
