The European stonechat (Saxicola rubicola) is a small passerine bird in the Old World flycatcher family, Muscicapidae. It is found across Europe, as far east as Ukraine and the South Caucasus, and in parts of North Africa. It breeds in heathland, coastal dunes and rough grassland, and is either short-distance migratory or non-migratory, with part of the population moving south to winter further south in Europe and more widely in northern Africa. European stonechats are 11.5 to 13 centimetres (4.5 to 5.1 in) long and weigh 13 to 17 grams (0.46 to 0.60 oz), with both sexes having short wings. The summer male has black upperparts, a black head, an orange throat and breast, and a white belly and vent, while the female has brown upperparts and head, and no white neck patches, rump or belly. This male European stonechat was photographed in Beaulieu in Hampshire, England.Photograph credit: Charles J. Sharp

    • Optimism should have a separate page that focuses on the philosophical idea of optimism and distinguishes the philosophical view from "positive thinking" and other everyday uses of the word.
    • Philosophy of social science, has some okay points but requires elaboration on Wittgenstein and Winch, perhaps other linguistic critiques, whether logical positivist or postmodernist.
    • Exchange value needs to be redone, it shouldn't be under 'Marxist theory'- although it's an important component of Marxist theory it's also vital for all economics. That said the article's weight on Marx is also absurd.
    • German Idealism and the articles related to it may need to be rewritten or expanded to avoid undue weight on Arthur Schopenhauer.
    • Protected values first section confuses right action and values and needs a copy edit, moving and wikifying
    • Quality (philosophy) needs a more clear explanation.
    • Socratic dialogues could do with some tidying and clarification. See the talk page for one suggested change.
    • Problem of universals: The introductory definition is (perhaps) fixed. But, the article is poor. Check out the German version.
    • Teleology: the article is shallow and inconsistent.
    • Existentialism: the quality of this article varies wildly and is in desperate need of expert attention.
    • Analytic philosophy This is a very major topic, but still has several sections which are stubs, and several topics which are not covered.
    • Lifeworld A philosophical concept that seems to have fallen exclusively into the hands of the sociologists. Could use some attention; it's a major and complex issue in phenomenology.
    • Perception Needs the attention of philosophically minded Wikipedians. This is only the start of an overhaul of perception and related articles.

    These are available for almost all languages Wikipedia is available in (with the exception of {{User en-0}} and {{User en-4}}), but listing them all here would take too much space. Just substitute the language code you want to use for "en". See Wikipedia:Babel for a complete list.

    You can combine up to 100 languages in a single box by using the affix in {{babel}}; for example:

    Userboxes edit

    Code: {{userbox|cyan|lightblue|<<The userbox heading, you can also add images>>|<<Your main message>>}}
