Input needed[edit]

  1. How should we handle monotypic groups? It doesn't really make sense to have categories that only have one member. The problem with {{taxonavigation}} (and inherited by {{Lepidoptera}}) is that it doesn't allow unlinked names, which I guess it wasn't made for that anyway. We could use redirects but the problem with that is that they would be soft redirects since they're categories. Users would still have to navigate through what is technically an empty category, so we might as well include some info there instead of a {{category redirect}}.
I would not establish a special rule for monotypic groups (and I have no idea how to set up one). Within a subfamily we have those shortcut categories "species of..." - I think this is good enough.--Olei (talk) 09:19, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, you would use the category parameter to override the genus category and place the species in the next highest rank (and then usually the genus category is redirected to the species). We don't have any "species of..." templates being used on subfamilies do we? I would think just "genera of...". Rocket000 (talk) 10:26, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
  1. What should added or removed from the built-in higher classification. It currently lists the superfamilies but we don't use them. Many are monotypic or have few members and Category:Lepidoptera isn't really overcrowded so I don't think we will ever use them. Is Arthropoda too far up the tree (or down the tree I guess)? Would starting with Insecta or Lepidoptera be better? Or should we go all the way to domain/superregnum?
The superfamilies should be removed and starting with Arthropoda is ok. --Olei (talk) 09:19, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
Superfamilies gone. Rocket000 (talk) 10:26, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
  1. For disambiguation, I propose that we always use the family name in parentheses, not "moth" or "butterfly", which are language specific, and definitely not "genus" because disambiguation is usually needed because of a homonym. The only issue with families is that they can change and are dependent on the classification used, but it's much better than using the subfamily or tribe. I guess "Lepidoptera" would make a good disambiguator but that would mean changing many more categories (all of them I think).
Familiy name should work. --Olei (talk) 09:19, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
  1. I really like how Category:Ennominae is looking. I sorta want to make "Species of" and "Genera of" categories at the family level. Would this be too much? Even if it's not that useful for navigation, it's kinda fun to see how many of each we have. Then we would be able to make some statistic templates that return the number of all Lepidoptera species we have. Who knows maybe this can be extended to all species. :D Rocket000 (talk) 22:20, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
Some statistics would be nice. :-) --Olei (talk) 09:19, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
