Welcome to Wikispecies!

Hello, and welcome to Wikispecies! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages you might like to see:

If you have named a taxon, then it is likely that there is (or will be) a Wikispecies page about you, and other pages about your published papers. Please see our advice and guidance for taxon authors.

If you have useful images to contribute to Wikispecies, please upload them at Wikimedia Commons. This is also true for video or audio files containing bird songs, whale vocalization, etc.

Please sign your comments on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your username (if you're logged in) and the date. Please also read the Wikispecies policy What Wikispecies is not. If you need help, ask me on my talk page, or in the Village Pump. Again, welcome!

Formatting templates


Thanks for your recent work with fixing pages containing "incertae sedis" links etc! While doing so, please also read up on how to use taxonavigation templates (for example {{Fam}} for lists of familiæ) and the other relevant formatting templates. Happy editing! –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 10:05, 24 July 2017 (UTC).Reply

Template categories


We no longer use "Publication of X" categories. —Justin (koavf)TCM 04:30, 27 July 2017 (UTC)Reply

Please follow current format guidelines


Whilst you are still editing here would it be possible for you to follow current formatting consensus for references and taxon pages rather than using your own unique style. Andyboorman (talk) 10:24, 27 July 2017 (UTC)Reply
