Taxonomic rank Neomura is of controversyEdit

Though there is little controversy that eukaryotes and archaeans are relatively closely related, the taxonomical name Neomura is not widely accepted. I suggest it not be included in this template. Sky6t 02:40, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

It's been removed, before I could get to it. I doubt that will itself be controversial. If so, I would controvert a reversion.  :-)  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  04:58, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 4 March 2020Edit

I would like to make a request to have the "Domain: Eukaryota" always displayed in the "Template:Taxonomy" for the taxon "Rigifilida". Videsh Ramsahai (talk) 12:01, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

  Not done for now: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit template-protected}} template. I think Peter coxhead knows things and whether this is desirable or even possible. Izno (talk) 03:30, 5 March 2020 (UTC)
@Videsh Ramsahai and Izno: |always_display= can only be placed in the taxonomy template of the taxon to which it applies. So you couldn't make it only display just for a hierarchy starting with the clade Rigifilida; if |always_display=yes were added here, it would cause the domain to be displayed in every eukaryote taxobox, for which I'm sure there's no consensus.
On the other hand, it does look odd for the hierarchy to end with "Clade: Opimoda". The solution, which I'm happy to implement, is:
  1. Create a new taxonomy template, Template:Taxonomy/Eukaryota/displayed with |always_display=yes.
  2. Set the parent at Template:Taxonomy/Opimoda to "Eukaryota/displayed" instead of "Eukaryota".
This will mean that any automated taxobox whose classification currently ends at "Clade: Opimoda" will change to end at "Domain: Eukaryota".
However, the system at present wouldn't recognize "Eukaryota/displayed" as a "colour-setting taxon", because it doesn't strip off the qualifier, and so flags an error. I need to fix that - which is desirable anyway – first. Peter coxhead (talk) 10:11, 5 March 2020 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 26 May 2022Edit

Change Eukaryote to Dumbaryote. It has been scientifically proven that this term is correct. (talk) 02:35, 26 May 2022 (UTC)

  Not done: page move requests should be made at Wikipedia:Requested moves. Declined as wrong venue with no comment as to the merits. Happy Editing--IAmChaos 03:02, 26 May 2022 (UTC)
