Too many redundant images in this gallery[edit]

A lot of the images in this gallery are very similar. It seems like the purpose of galleries when there are a large number of images is to select a reasonable sampling for quality and diversity (including perhaps diversity of location). The category serves the function of being a place where all the images can be found.

I will wait a week or so and if there is no response to this discussion I plan to remove many of the images from this gallery and review the category for any images that might be appropriate to add into the gallery. --Davefoc (talk) 00:32, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

The Bald Eagle and Branta canadensis galleries, both with numerous and redundant images, are organized by subheadings. That may be helpful here as well. Walter Siegmund (talk) 04:29, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Other changes[edit]

I made a few changes to the gallery already:

  • Put the translation table above the taxonavigation box. There is not a set rule for this but for consistency with the rest of the anseriforme pages I put the translation table on top.
  • Changed the taxobox to reference the Anser genus instead of the Chen genus. This makes it consistent with the rest of Wikimedia, Wikipedia, Wikispecies and the name of the organism. I retained the synonym reference.
  • Changed L. to Linnaeus. Linnaeus seems to be the most common standard around here. I just changed it for consistency.
  • Added small codes to the authority name. Again just for consistency.

If anybody disagrees with any of this please let me know.--Davefoc (talk) 00:32, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

My reading of the Orchi, Slaunger, Rocket000 consensis follows.[1] Walter Siegmund (talk) 04:37, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
  1. {{VN}} - makes sense to put what the organism is best know as at the top
  2. {{taxonavigation}} - right in the middle
  3. {{synonyms}} - should be between the VNs and the taxonavigation templates
  4. {{species}}, {{genera}}, or {{taxa}} - kinda like the continuation of {{taxonavigation}} (if there's more than one system used, these can be multiple of these in between each {{taxonavigation}}.
  5. {{ws}} and other link templates ({{ITIS}}, {{WRMS}}, etc.)
