Uppercase Genera[edit]

This modification done on {{Genera}} by User:Orchi seems problematic:

My question is: is uppercase really needed ?

User:Orchi, could you wait for our discussion before propagating your modification.
Only a robot should do that sort of modifications.
And we could discuss it before ;-(

Changed it back because it's not normally capitalized in English. Some languages have different ideas about capitalization, maybe it was just that (speaking of which, Orchi, using {{VN}} on Barack Obama makes no sense). Rocket000 (talk) 21:38, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
P.S. The other changes aren't an issue. [1] Rocket000 (talk) 21:40, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
{{VN}} and Barack Obama - Mr. Rocket000, I'm sorry to understand you. What is the reason to compare my aim using the correct latin grammer (plural) with the german and dutch translation of the VNtitel: "name in other languages". It was my great error, that I thought, that we could use one and not two kinds of Translation tables for general use. Pardon! Orchi (talk) 23:02, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
Because it hasn't been changed yet so I didn't think you knew it was an error. I brought it up now because this made me think about it (both being a language issue). {{VN/title}} does not mean "name in other languages". It isn't for "translations", since the Latin names are considered universal. Of course you can use {{translation table}} for both if you want (I actually prefer you use it for galleries).

Can the "for" be changed to "via" or "from" or something? It was introduced in error by a non-native English speaker (long before we had this template), probably meant to say "from"... "For" simply little if any sense, it's not technically wrong but you probably wouldn't say it as a native speaker (we take the lists from there for Commons).

Hello my friend.
Just change in {{Taxolang}} the fifth line "|en=for" by "|en=from".
But you cannot change the second line "|for =". It is only an internal tag.
