Pteronarcys californica 2542.jpg

Hi Wsiegmund, I recatted your Megaloptera -images like the one here, because it is actually a Plecoptera-species. This image is not a trichopterid (Trichoptera) but a lacewing (Neuroptera). Greetz, Bart

Yes, I saw your edits and assumed that you were an expert. The IDs that I provided were from Louise Kulser, who is knowledgeable, but perhaps not an expert on insects.[1] Walter Siegmund (talk) 20:43, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Follow Up to Photo Use Permission

Hi. We are not getting published for this work. We are essentially volunteers who are putting this field guide together. We found a professor at the local community college who helped us get this project started. I'm not sure what authors you are asking for. It's just myself and my friend who are making this guide. I cannot find your email address on this website. We are a long ways from completing this guide. I can email you a copy if you like once we finish.


I received your email; I'm glad you found the link. I hope you get my email reply. Walter Siegmund (talk) 06:25, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Changes in {{Taxonavigation}}

I am Rocket000's padawan and as my friend seems gone for a while, I am looking for a small help from an admin knowing a bit in templates.
If you look at Category:Aves, Category:Accipitridae and Category:Neophron percnopterus you will see that they share a large part of their Taxonavigation.
My idea is to modify {{Taxonavigation}} to allow to include the first part of the Taxonavigation through a include= parameter.
You can look at User:Liné1/sandbox for an example.
If you are interested, could you simply:

Thanks in advance Liné1 (talk) 06:03, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Those seem like good changes and I'd be happy to help. Unfortunately, I won't have any time until next week, so you may wish to ask someone who isn't so busy. Thanks, Walter Siegmund (talk) 07:02, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
I understand. Do you have a name in mind (admin, bio-oriented, template-aware and nice ;-)) ? Cheers Liné1 (talk) 10:12, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Is Rocket still active? Apparently not.[2] I don't know. I can do it next week. Walter Siegmund (talk) 17:26, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

{{Taxonavigation}} again

Hello Wsiegmund,
Would you mind modifying {{Taxonavigation}} for me ? ;-)
I describe the modification I need in Template_talk:Taxonavigation#Changes_in_.7B.7Bm.7CTaxonavigation.7D.7D_2.
Thanks in advance, Liné1 (talk) 12:14, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Bonjour Liné1; Liné1bot is fixing many of the galleries I've created and is saving me a lot of work. However, it is making it difficult to read my watch list. Please consider requesting a bot flag for Liné1bot. Merci, Walter Siegmund (talk) 06:49, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

I discovered that problem today. How do I request this flag ? Cheers Liné1 (talk) 06:51, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
The information at COM:BOT may be helpful. Request permission at COM:BRFA. Merci. Walter Siegmund (talk) 06:59, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
I did request the permission (See here). I don't understand the problem. Liné1 (talk) 08:53, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
I agree.[4] It must be a bug. --Walter Siegmund (talk) 19:21, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
Please see related discussions.[5][6] --Walter Siegmund (talk) 19:32, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
