disambig templatesEdit

Hi! I think the taxonomy templates work like this, for disambiguation. I'll use Lithocharis as an example.

  • If there's a template "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis" that is used for lepidoptera, then there would need to be another such as "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis (beetle)" if one was needed for the beetle. The template name is used only for template disambiguation. The template name (the part after the slash, "Lithocharis" or "Lithocharis (beetle)") is used in the Speciesbox or Automatic taxobox. It doesn't necessarily have to be the same as the article name (but it might be less confusing that way.)
  • If there's an article "Lithocharis" and an article "Lithocharis (beetle)", you can use the template "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis" for either one by specifying either "Lithocharis" or "Lithocharis (beetle)|Lithocharis" in the template's link field. In this case, if you want to use it for the beetle, the name "Lithocharis (beetle)" should not appear in the Speciesbox or Automatic taxobox, only "Lithocharis". The name in the Speciesbox or Automatic taxobox is for the template, not the article.
  • It's not unusual to need a disambiguation name for both the template and article, in which case you need two templates (such as "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis" and "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis (beetle)", and in the link fields "Lithocharis" in one and "Lithocharis (beetle)|Lithocharis" in the other

Since there's not currently a template used for the lepidoptera Lithocharis, there really only needs to be one template, not both "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis" and "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis (beetle)"

...and, of course, I could be wrong on any of this. It's easy to get mixed up! Bob Webster (talk) 00:50, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

@Bob: I am not comfortable at all with the automatic taxoboxes system. I saw that there was a link from the beetle species Lithocharis ochracea to its genus which went in error to the moth genus Euparyphasma. I was pleased enough with myself that I was able to change that to a red link instead of the error. I would be in your debt if you could clean up after me as you described above. I am not now able to figure it out for myself. Thank you,  SchreiberBike | ⌨  04:09, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
It's all straight now (I think). Everything you did was correct from a content viewpoint, it just left an extra unused template file. I will point out that, while my explanation seemed perfectly clear when I wrote it, it sure is convoluted now!
I'm happy to help with any template stuff I can. Feel free to let me know if you need anything or notice anything wrong. Bob Webster (talk) 04:53, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

Autopatrolled grantedEdit

Hi SchreiberBike, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the "autopatrolled" permission to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the autopatrolled right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled. Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions. Happy editing! - TNT 💖 18:10, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

@There'sNoTime: Thanks. It makes sense to me, but you should be aware that by the letter of the law I am not eligible. It has been proposed three times before. See the bottom of this page. Keep up the good work.  SchreiberBike | ⌨  04:54, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Invitation to New AI-Labelling Campaign for Newcomer SessionsEdit

Hello, I'm reaching out to you because I saw that you signed up as a labelling volunteer at Wikipedia:Labels/Edit quality. I'm starting a new project that builds on Edit quality, to predict Newcomer quality. That is, to predict the damagingness and goodfaithness of "sessions" (multiple related edits) of users within 1 day of their registration. With this AI trained, we could help automatically distinguish betewen productive and unproductive new users. If you wouldn't mind taking a look at this new labelling campaign and label a few sessions I would be very grateful. In addition if you have any feedback or discover any bugs in the process I would appreciate that too. You can find the project page at Wikipedia:Labels/Newcomer_session_quality or go directly to labels.wmflabs.org/ui/enwiki/ and look for the campaign titled "Newcomer Session quality (2018)". Thanks so much!

Thank you for the nice words!Edit

Thank you for the nice words! When writing a new article (or translating one) should I put references before or after punctuation marks on the english wikipedia? Have a nice day! Okimeolvx (talk) 08:30, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

@Okimeolvx: Hi there! Wikipedia has a lot of rules, but mostly you don't need to worry about them. Just use your good judgement and do what seems right. You will get it right most of the time. If you do start reading the rules though you'll be able to make the articles match with Wikipedia's style and they will be easier to read. The specific rules about references and punctuation are at MOS:REFPUNCT. As you are able, read that whole WP:MOS page. It's a lot to absorb though, so don't feel like you need to know it all before you start. Let me know if there's any other questions you have or there's anything else I can do to help. Keep up the good work.  SchreiberBike | ⌨  19:02, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

copyedit requestEdit

Hi SchreiberBike, I created a draft of the first issue of the Tree of Life newsletter. If you're still interested in glancing it over for a c/e, it would be appreciated. Thanks, Enwebb (talk) 16:39, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

@Enwebb: I generally followed WP:MoS style, but since you are starting the newsletter, you can set the style any way you want. Feel totally free to disagree with my choices and I'll try to follow your style in the future.
I wanted to explain some of my choices: I capitalized article titles when used as article titles rather than as the name of a species – that's not always done, so your call. You've got ;<big> ... </big> for the headings. Would you be comfortable using == ... == format instead? WP:ACCESSIBILITY favors that. For the dire whelk DYK, what is "being eaten" is unclear in the text, but that's how it was on the DYK. If you want to change that back, that makes sense; your call. I think the April DYKs section looks better showing rather than being behind the "show" button, but again, your call. I'm not good with tables, but if the tops of the "Newly recognized content" and "Newly nominated FAs" tables were vertically even, that would look better.
I like to copy edit and I mostly do ok, but because I am dyslexic there are some kinds of errors (like spelling) that are invisible to me. Keep that in mind. Also, my health is uneven and I'm not always able to be involved the way I'd like to be, so be prepared for me to disappear if necessary. Thank you and keep up the good work.  SchreiberBike | ⌨  19:33, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
SchreiberBike, Thanks for your time! I appreciate it and will consider all of your suggestions. As far as the vertical alignment of the tables, it must just be a display thing, because they look even to me on my mac and PC. Thanks again, and don't worry, I'm not expecting a standing commitment :) Enwebb (talk) 23:36, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week in recognition of your great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)

User:Buster7 submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week:

Sometimes as I work on one gem I find another. While awarding User:AddWittyNameHere, I discovered SchreiberBike, a cohort of hers that deserves acknowledgement and credit for doing, in his words, "the small things on Wikipedia to make them a little bit better. Lately most of my effort has been spent checking the capitalization of species common names and fixing them to match Wikipedia's style. I'm working primarily on Lepidoptera now. While I do that, I do other stuff too or else I get bored. I've also adopted some delicious typos and sometimes do copy editing and other things". When the Editor of the Week award was first inaugurated, SchreiberBike was exactly the type of editor we had in mind. Imagine the mess Wikipedia would be without the vigilance and diligence this type of editor displays. Bravo and well-deserved! User:Adityavagarwal strongly supported this nomination.

Moved from User:SchreiberBike/Lepidoptera capsEdit

COMMENT: there is a problem with this elimination of initial capitals from vernacular names. You can't tell if "small brown warbler" is a warbler that happens to be small and brown, a Brown Warbler that happens to be small, or a species called the Small Brown Warbler.

I'm not convinced of the wisdom of this as a general policy. Foiled circuitous wanderer (talk) 14:22, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi @Foiled circuitous wanderer: That's a legitimate opinion and one that's been discussed at length (See: WP:BIRDCON). However, for the last about five years, Wikipedia has been consistent in capitalizing as described at MOS:LIFE. Good writing is necessary throughout Wikipedia and where the descriptive parts of a name can be confusing, it's worth writing carefully to be clear what is descriptive and what is the name. Let me know if you have any other questions or ideas. Keep up the good work. SchreiberBike | ⌨  19:29, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) It should be clear from context whether a warbler that is small and brown is being referred to, or one particular species. If it isn't clear, rephrase until it is. However, while I am in generally in favor of using sentence case for vernacular names, I don't think it works very well for lepidopterans that have a definitive article in the vernacular name. Giving the vernacular name of Agrochola circellaris as "the brick" is more confusing than "The Brick", and there's really no way to rephrase the context to clarify (other than explicitly saying that "the brick" is a vernacular name for the species; e.g., "the brick, as it is commonly known, is found in Europe...").

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks!Edit

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org.

Thank you!

Question concerning placement of imagesEdit

Thanks for the question. You had changed the caption from "Tayra" to "Eira barbara" and Wikipedia style is to italicize scientific names.

George Hamilton, 3rd Earl of AbercornEdit

Dear SchreiberBike. Thanks for correcting mistakes on the article George Hamilton, 3rd Earl of Abercorn, to which I contributed and which is therefore on my watchlist. I agree with all the other corrections you made but have doubts about replacing the BR HTML tag with BR/. I thought Wikipedia uses HTML5, which does not require closure for the BR. I have heard that some people maintain that BR does confuse the Source Editor's syntax highlighting, but I have always used just unclosed BR and did not notice anything going wrong with the syntax highlighting, which I have always on. Can you please explain why BR/ is necessary? I have used BR a lot. I want to be sure and understand why, before I change all that. With many thanks Johannes Schade (talk) 12:23, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi @Johannes Schade: Thanks for your note. I typically make that edit because I use this syntax highlighter which is available under Preferences/Gadgets/Editing. I don't know how many other people use it, but I find it quite helpful and I suspect more people would use it if they knew about it. One particularity of the highlighter is that it differentiates between a <br> and a <br/>. As it says in the documentation "For performance reasons, the highlighter requires all tags to be valid XML. For example, make sure that if you start a <p> tag you end it with </p>, and use <br/> instead of <br>." Hence, I do it because it helps some people and doesn't hurt anything. Thank you. SchreiberBike | ⌨  21:09, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
Dear SchreiberBike. Thank you for the precise description, which allowed me to understand that the syntax highlighter that you use is not the normal one that comes with the Source Editor of the English Wikipedia but an alternative one that is offered as a Gadget. I habitually use the normal one, which comes with the editor but is by default switched off and needs to be switched on by clicking the fourth button on the top of the editor that shows a pen and displays the tooltip text "Syntax highlighting" when the mouse hovers over it. The editor remembers this switching on as your choice and will thereafter always highlight the text in the editor window. This normal syntax highlighter does not require closing the BR tag. Following your description I have tried the alternative highlighter, which was new to me. The two highlighters can be easily be distinguished from each other by the way they highlight: the normal one colours the letters of the text, not their background, whereas the alternative highlighter colours the background of the letters as a highlighter pen would do on a printed text. The choice of the highlighter tool is of course personal, I feel that both do their job well enough. However, the alternative one requires BR closure and is therefore not strictly HTML5-compatible. Please try the normal highlighter. I would be very interested to hear what you think. Best regards Johannes Schade (talk) 09:13, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
@Johannes Schade: In my mind, the normal highlighter is the new highlighter; I'd used the old one for quite a while before the new one came around. I experimented with the new one when it came out and I've experimented with it more today. It has been improved since then, but for me, it still has some deal killers. When I use it with Firefox, it doesn't support spell checking (a necessity for me as a dyslexic). When I use it with Chrome, the ctrl+f function is erratic and Chrome doesn't have a "match case" function. Also, it doesn't as clearly mark unclosed tags or formatting. I'm willing to try new things, but the new highlighter hasn't worked for me. If it's not causing problems, I'll keep changing to <br/>. SchreiberBike | ⌨  06:39, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
Dear SchreiberBike. Thank you for your interesting reply. I suspected so much: the normal highlighter is a new highlighter, whereas "Remember the dot"'s highlighter is older. I did not know this as I myself am a novice on Wikipedia and have therefore not seen the time when the new highlighter was new. It seems the new syntax highlighter comes from an JavaScript editor called CodeMirror. I have difficulties to understand some of your comments. I use Chrome and the new highlighter but do not seem to experience erratic behaviour of ctrl+f, which seems well to always pop up the Find Bar as it should. I agree that Chrome's Find Bar could do with a case-sensitivity toggle. I would use that from time to time. — Okey, I have understood why you and some others change <br> to <br/>, which first seemed to me a very weird correction. If I understand you right you do not even intend to correct <br> to <br/> you just change it so that it becomes acceptable to your highlighter and it is probably also fine with you if people continue to write <br> and not <br/> in their contributions to Wikipedia as this is the normal way of HTML5. This "a" but also "b" seems to be part of the Wikipedia philosophy, which is inclusive, accommodating, and tolerant even if this makes Wikipedia a bit chaotic. Thanks for your time Johannes Schade (talk) 10:48, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

Athetis hongkongensis editsEdit

many thanks for your edits. There is one major point of issue - the classification of Noctuidae; Athetis is not (nor has been, if ever) in Acronictinae (which was redefined in a much stricter sense in, &/or following, work by Zahiri, and others). Please see my comment at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Lepidoptera#Article_and_task_requests for a more detailed list of references that give the situation more completely. Many thanks. HKmoths (talk) 07:47, 8 March 2020 (UTC)

@HKmoths: Thank you for fixing my error. I am a copy editor rather than a biologist and I added the stub template to match the other articles for that genus. Keep up the good work. SchreiberBike | ⌨  04:11, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

Alec H. ChisholmEdit

Dear SchreiberBike, your edits on Alec H. Chisholm make the article look and read so much better - thank you for your sterling efforts! James Jamesmcardle(talk) 22:11, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

@Jamesmcardle: Thank you so much. If you have any questions or disagreements, feel free to bring them up with me. I may be inadvertently changing Australian to US English, so if anything looks wrong, revert as needed. Keep up the good work. SchreiberBike | ⌨  22:14, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

Genus PsaliodesEdit

Hi SchreiberBike, about a year ago you merged Psaliodes fervescens with the genus page, Psaliodes. However, the references provided on the article page do not support that it is indeed monotypic. Perhaps a point of confusion is that the North American Moth Photographers Group (MPG) lists a single species only for North America north of Mexico. The references that do not draw from MPG list many more species worldwide. Is there a newer classification that would contradict this? 'Cheers, Loopy30 (talk) 22:32, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

@Loopy30: Thanks for your note. I can't say I remember doing that one, but most likely my reason for doing it was at Lepidoptera and Some Other Life Forms (Savela). I see from LepIndex, and the other sources linked in the article, that Savela is in the minority in thinking it is monotypic. I suspect that all the others are copied from LepIndex, which has not been updated in a while. I am not aware of any recent articles on the subject explaining why Savela made the choice he did. If you think LepIndex and the others are probably right, I will get to work on fixing the genus article to match the other sources. Thank you, SchreiberBike | ⌨  23:01, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
At the Savela link you provide, which is also ref #1 of the article, the entry draws from two sources that both only cover North America north of Mexico. I do not believe that the information there is incorrect, just not complete in a worldwide scope. As the type species was collected in Brazil, if the sole North American species was now found to be monotypic, it would be then given a new genus name and could not use the name Psaliodes. Happy Easter, Loopy30 (talk) 23:35, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
I'll work on it tonight. SchreiberBike | ⌨  23:43, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for that. I fear that while many of Savela's listings may support the presence of a species in a particular genus, it is not complete enough to be sufficient to determine the absence of additional species. See also Ninodes which appears to be in the same situation. Loopy30 (talk) 12:02, 13 April 2020 (UTC)
@Loopy30: I'll look into that tonight. Let me know if you find any others. SchreiberBike | ⌨  23:59, 15 April 2020 (UTC)

@Notafly: I resolved it I think. It's a common misspelling I found on line. Leptarthus vs. Leptarthrus. So now Leptarthus brevirostris redirects to Leptarthrus brevirostris. I also fixed the misspelling at List of soldierflies and allies of Great Britain. Glad to help. SchreiberBike | ⌨  18:35, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Monotypic generaEdit

Hi SchreiberBike, the example "The genus Nodocephalosaurus has a redirect from its sole species, Nodocephalosaurus kirtlandensis." at the guidelines would suggest that Hypocephalus_armatus should be at the genus. Shyamal (talk) 03:21, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

@Shyamal: Nodocephalosaurus is the more typical case where the article is under the genus name for a monotypic genus, but when the genus name needs to be disambiguated, as a hypocephalus is an Egyptian funerary item, we put the article under the species name. The bottom of the guideline says "The exception is when a monotypic genus name needs to be disambiguated. The article should then be at the species, since this is a more natural form of disambiguation." That means that rather than call the article Hypocephalus (genus), we call it Hypocephalus armatus. Does that make sense to you? If I'd been around when that decision was made, I would have argued to do it differently, but it has worked for a long time and I don't see a need for change. SchreiberBike | ⌨  03:42, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Ah ok, got it, thanks. Perhaps an example should be included so that folks like me get it more easily. I saw that Plantdrew also did something similar saying "Use natural disambiguation". Shyamal (talk) 03:59, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

Standards for zoological author namesEdit

Hi, in the absence of a list like the IPNI for zoological scientific names, there's always an issue as to how to present the names of authors. For spiders, we've always followed the usage of the World Spider Catalog, which is the source for spider names and taxonomy. Peter coxhead (talk) 08:20, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

@Peter coxhead: Ok. I'll follow that for spiders (and go back and fix anything I've done beyond the two I saw that you caught). There are four people surnamed Lucas who have described Lepidoptera and I was casting my net widely, but I'll narrow my efforts. Thanks, SchreiberBike | ⌨  15:57, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

EndorsementsEdit

Please stop adding social media endorsements. Thank you. Lima Bean Farmer (talk) 01:52, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Hi @Lima Bean Farmer: I don't make a habit of adding such endorsements, but I often revert edits which remove content without explanation. I notice that you typically don't leave edit summaries. Please do! That's part of how we collaborate in building the encyclopedia. Without edit summaries it's hard to know if an edit improves the encyclopedia or if it's vandalism. Better yet if your edit summary links to the guideline you are following such as WP:ENDORSE. I wish you well as you work in controversial areas of Wikipedia and you should know that I'm a big fan of lima beans. SchreiberBike | ⌨  03:41, 6 September 2020 (UTC)
Thank you! I will try to make sure I add more edit summaries. I often just put something like “Twitter” or “Social media” endorsements and if people have questions I will answer them. My apologies, I most certainly am not committing vandalism.
