Wikipedia:Sandbox organiserEdit

 

Sandbox Organiser

A place to help you organise your work

Hi all

I've been working on a tool for the past few months that you may find useful, especially if you create new articles. Wikipedia:Sandbox organiser is a set of tools to help you better organise your draft articles and other pages in your userspace. It also includes areas to keep your to do lists, bookmarks, list of tools. You can customise your sandbox organiser to add new features and sections. Once created you can access it simply by clicking the sandbox link at the top of the page. You can create and then customise your own sandbox organiser just by clicking the button on the page. All ideas for improvements and other versions would be really appreciated.

Huge thanks to PrimeHunter and NavinoEvans for their work on the technical parts, without them it wouldn't have happened.

Hope its helpful

Pluralization - mildly related to this projectEdit

Hi Lepidopterofans. I'm suggesting one of "Lepidopterae" or "Lepidopterans" at [[Talk:List of Lepidoptera that feed on Brassica#Propose moving to proper pluralization of title]]. Invasive Spices (talk) 21:30, 13 April 2021 (UTC)[]


What for ? We got used to "Lepidoptera" - that's correct in singular and plural (it is Latin) ! Cheers I'm so tired (talk) 13:36, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[]

Future Assistance with StubEdit

Hello all, I'm a student at the University of Sydney and in the following few months, I will continue to improve the following article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angoumois_grain_moth. It is my goal to get this stub to the C or B level and any assistance with editing my future work and pointing out what needs fixing would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

  • I suggest adding the native range. It doesn't have it right now, and looking quickly across the internet doesn't tell me either. This may be hard info to find. Invasive Spices (talk) 21:10, 14 April 2021 (UTC)[]
    • This is an "old" style article.

You may try to get some more informations on host plants, and which are not to be listed. There's quite some misidentifications on those small moths.

Your edits: you deleted the host plant or substrate section. This is quite important, I reverted them.

Also did some cleanup but actually this article would need to be renamed (to Sitotroga cerealella ) because its a "noob name". Scientific names should come first. I do not really understand why this needs to be discussed. Noobs edits can be fixed without prior discussion. You may also do some clean up.

There are still some articles here, that are written in a horrible way. though as long as there are still thousands that had not been written.... were's the priority ? On that Sitotroga' ??? Cheers I'm so tired (talk) 13:30, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[]

New article on a species of butterfly for verificationEdit

Hello, I am Space Chinedu. Please, I want you to check the new article that I created about a species of butterfly in my sandbox and see if it is up to Wikipedia standards. If there are any problems or anything you would like to add let me know. If the article is okay let me know so that I can paste it as a new article on Wikipedia. The link is https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Space_chinedu/sandbox. I really appreciate if you verified the new article I made. Space chinedu (talk) 13:47, 2 May 2021 (UTC)[]

Name changesEdit

Hello, WikiProject,

There are some moves requested that are labeled uncontroversial but I'm not sure they have the support of editors who work in this area. They are for Grammia cervinoides, Grammia hewletti, Platarctia ornata, Platarctia parthenos, Apantesis williamsii, Platarctia souliei and Pararctia yarrowii and they are changes from Binomial names to names included as synonyms. I hope there are some WikiProject members that occasionally check this page. Liz Read! Talk! 23:36, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]
