Taxobox colouring[change | edit source]

I'm coming round to the idea that we could use the even lighter version of all taxoboxes, by which I mean the furthest right boxes in the Simple talk discussion (under the incorrect heading of 'extinct').

In which case I could just about bring myself to give up marking extinct species with a different colour or shade. I'd like to find some way of flagging extinct species or groups, however. At present the only graphic symbol we have is the small tombstone which can be placed before an extinct group name. Anyway, my real purpose here is to suggest that you change the code for taxoboxes to the extra-light colours. I think this is consistent with our previous discussion.

I have been changing the fossil lightblue to our new colour on theropod pages. All goes well until I get to Therizinosaur, which for some reason won't default to our new colour.
We still have the old colours on our mini-taxoboxes on those category pages which relate to biology pages. I expect that's because they have a different parent template... Macdonald-ross (talk) 10:07, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

RfD on mixed nationality[change | edit source]

I was about to construct a list of all the articles that would need to be checked for this, when I noticed that you mentioned there are about 960 of them. Does that mean that you already have a list? If the RfD passes, I was thinking that it could be divided, if there are two or more admins willing to do the work. Of course, I saw that at least one article has been added to one of the categories, so maybe we'd need to make a new list anyway. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:37, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

DYK[change | edit source]

Hey Osiris, how's it been? I added four DYK hooks since its time for an update. Can you review them? Thanks. :) --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 22:38, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Better Vocabulary[change | edit source]

Hello, Osiris.

I would like to know about vocabulary on Simple English Wikipedia. Which one is better between British vocabulary and American Vocabulary for writing on the Wikipedia?

en:WP:ENGVAR while from English Wikipedia also applies here. So giving it a read might help you. -DJSasso (talk) 12:46, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

RfD nomination of Template:Citation London Underground performance exits[change | edit source]

An editor has requested deletion of Template:Citation London Underground performance exits, an article you created. We appreciate your changes, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article meets Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Please comment on the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2014/Template:Citation London Underground performance exits and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also change the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns. But you should not remove the requests for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you very much. Auntof6 (talk) 06:34, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
