    Maroon anemonefish: AQUAHOWTO[edit]

    How do we clean up the Maroon anemonefish article to comply with WP:NOHOWTO? Thanks, Bananasoldier (talk) 02:35, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

    I took a quick stab at it. What you did before me was a good start. Now, it's really a matter of needing to be sourced, rather than being how-to. It's a low priority for me, so I'm not going to watch it; please let me know if it needs more from me. --Tryptofish (talk) 01:31, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

    Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

    Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

    New french public aquarium added[edit]

    Today, Aquarium de La Rochelle was added to Wikipedia. kind regards Dan Koehl (talk) 10:41, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

    There seems to be a lot of potentially useful secondary references from Google News searches, but all of them are in French and I don't speak it. If anyone here can, I recommend using them to fix the referencing issues in the article.-- OBSIDIANSOUL 12:40, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
    I just put it on my watchlist, and I have a moderately good reading knowledge of French. Could you please expand on what you mean about the referencing issues? Where specifically do you see problems that should be fixed? Thanks. --Tryptofish (talk) 01:07, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
    The references I found in English are all primary (i.e. sourced from the Aquarium itself), which is alright for non-controversial factual information. But it needs secondary sources to establish notability as well as verify (if possible) some of the claims (e.g. the claim of being the first tourist attraction, etc.) Thanks for looking into it.-- OBSIDIANSOUL 02:31, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
    Thanks, now I understand. I'll see what I can do when I have a bit of time for it. --Tryptofish (talk) 22:40, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

    WikiProject X is live![edit]

    WikiProject X icon.svg

    Hello everyone!

    You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

    Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

    Help identifying a fish[edit]

    Hello everyone! At Piaractus brachypomus we need help identifying the top image on that article's infobox (File:Colossoma-brachypomus.jpg). As can be seen on the talk page we are not sure if that is a red-bellied Pacu, or, as claimed on the Pacu page, a black pacu. Any help would be appreciated. Please discuss on the article's talk page. --HighFlyingFish (talk) 21:48, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

    Can I send invitations to new members for your project?[edit]

    Hi, I have been working on recommending new members for your project for a while, and have sent some lists to Antrogh who was willing to help invite those recommended editors. I wonder if you mind me sending invitations directly for WikiProject Aquarium Fishes on your behalf to save time and efforts of yours? Thank you! Bobo.03 (talk) 17:01, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

    What, if anything, would that involve in terms of what editors here would have to do? --Tryptofish (talk) 19:48, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
    @Tryptofish: Sorry, I didn't watch the page. I guess when you see new editors show up, just be friendly and help them whenever they need help:) Bobo.03 (talk) 18:12, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
    Thanks, that's certainly easy! Please feel free to do that, and thank you for the effort. --Tryptofish (talk) 18:15, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
