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:
- Help:Contents provides a good introduction to editing Wikispecies.
- Templates are there to help you to follow our syntax and formatting standards.
- Have a look at Done and to do.
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! OhanaUnitedTalk page 17:57, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
Author names edit
Thanks for your work! Please be careful with parentheses around author names. Some names have them and others don't. This is because the parentheses have a specific meaning. An author name with parentheses around it means that the original author placed the animal in a different genus than the one it is placed in now. Koumz (talk) 13:37, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
Autopatrolled rights edit
Dear Rojypala, You have been granted autopatrolled user rights, which may be granted to experienced Wikispecies users who have demonstrated an understanding of Wikispecies policies and guidelines. In addition to what registered users can do, autopatrollers can have one's own edits automatically marked as patrolled (autopatrol). The autopatrol user right is intended to reduce the workload of new page patrollers and causes pages created by autopatrolled users to be automatically marked as patrolled. For more information, read Wikispecies:Autopatrollers.
You may as autopatroller use the autopatroller user box on your user page. Copy and paste the following code on your user page:
Theres always a need of patrolling files edited by unregistered users, and if you think you have a good understanding of Wikispecies policies and guidelines and want to help out with patrolling, you can request patrol rights at Patroller. Dan Koehl (talk) 20:46, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
Hello Have a look at the list of references for Actinodaphne wightiana. The templates for IPNI and The Plant List will pick up the page name automatically saving you to hunt for the links. By the way your links go to the older version of TPL. I always think it is a good idea to make the protologue the first reference in the list and then add the others in alphabetical order. See also the list of synonyms etc. Hopefully this will be helpful. Regards Andyboorman (talk) 10:15, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
Wikispecies Oversighter edit
Wikispecies has no local Oversighter. Since I had the communitys confidence regarding the previous application for Checkusers rights, as per local Oversight policy on META, I hereby apply to get Oversighters user rights, as a request to the Wikispecies community.
Application is located at Requests for Comment.
Please also note that Oversighter actions are logged, but for privacy reasons the logs are only visible to other Oversighters. Because of this, Wikispecies must always have no fewer than two oversighters, for mutual accountability. I don't want to suggest anyone, but hope that someone feel inspired and will step forward and also apply for oversighters rights.
Oversight nomination edit
Please refer to Wikispecies:Oversighters/Requests/Koavf for a second Oversight nomination. Note that we must have at least two Oversigthers in order for anyone to have these user rights. All feedback is welcome. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:50, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
