Rename to Animalia[edit]

Since we're using the name plantae for plants, I suggest that we change the name of this category it's latin equivalent also. --Groucho 05:15, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)

This would also give us the chance to leave all the non-latin categories, which do not belong into the Animalia tree, behind. They are responsible for a lot of circular references inside the tree and make maintainance and navigation difficult. Peter_Aut 05:11, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)
They make navigation possible. I'm not a Roman, priest, lawyer, doctor, botanist, or biologist. I still need to find images. Actually, I could use names like "mutton" and "pork". AlbertCahalan 04:10, 17 May 2005 (UTC)
I agree with AlbertCahalan, but the common names should be a supplement to the scientific names. A previous consensus was reached on the use of Latin names and dual use of categories such as Animals and Animalia have the potential to be more confusing than helpful. I think we need to be merging these entirely and (if they are working) use redirects from common to Latin names. (And continue supplementation with common names within galleries and category headers.) LeaMaimone 03:38, 12 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Merging with Animals[edit]

See above: Rename to Animalia. This isn't exactly a small project, so please lend a hand. Thanks. LeaMaimone 03:58, 12 Jun 2005 (UTC)


Transfer Category:Animals translations?[edit]

  1. Latin names remove the need for such translations (at least for those people familiar with binomial nomenclature).
  2. Don't interwiki links serve the same purpose? -- and without taking up so much room. LeaMaimone 03:58, 12 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Yes, plus which they're useful as quick links to see if articles are using the commons pics. Stan Shebs July 3, 2005 04:55 (UTC)
