Information.svg Please do not bring pages from En wiki without simplification. Please read the guidance from our main page. Thank you. Macdonald-ross (talk) 09:30, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Oversight[change source]

Thanks for alerting me to the oversight issue - it has now been dealt with. --Peterdownunder (talk) 07:32, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

QD[change source]

I've removed the QD template and the Wait tag for now, I believe the article no longer meets the QD Criteria. --Thegooduser Let's Chat 🍁 21:42, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

I don't think it meets them either, but I'm not sure you can remove the tags once they're placed. They might need to go to an administrator for review at this point. Diadophis (talk) 21:47, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Geranium[change source]

I've gone over your sub-page and made some changes to simplify it further. I think the idea of a category "Garden plants" is basically a good one, and you could set it up. but it would be a subcategory of all plants which grow in gardens, including trees like cycads and firs... Better would be to make the category "garden flowers" as a sub-category of "flowers".
All things from En wiki need to be re-thought and changed if they are not right for us. For example, there is little chance we will have pages on all geranium species, so huge lists of species red-linked is just off-putting (that's my opinion). Sensibly, red-links should be those potential titles which we want to give a priority to. Here's the point: there are well over a million species of beetles, and we can't get a proper description of all the families, let alone genera (and neither can English wiki), and a thousand years might pass before we can describe all species. I do accept that in principle red links are useful, but that principle can be pushed too far, and an absolute blizzard of red links does nothing for us. IMO.
