Qumran

You will be placing your part in the Qumran page. Just create your own heading and enter it there. --Mr. Ashcraft 22:05, 1 January 2007 (EST)

Gallery

Daeki,

Your gallery photos are still not formatted correctly. You have not identified the species name for any of them. Instead you put their Family name where the template says (species name), and you've stated that they are all in the Family Galagidae.

They all have different species and Family names. I did the second one for you also below. Do the rest like these examples.

Common-name (species name) Subtaxa: name

Galago (Otolicnus Galago) Family: Galagidae
Aye-Aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) Family: Daubentoniidae

Pictures

Daeki,

Again - I do not want you using Wikimedia Commons pictures or those from other CreationWiki articles primarily. I dont mind you using a couple, but you need to be finding your own pictures from sites like flickr, nps.gov (national park service), fws.gov (fish and wildlife services), etc - and then identify them by searching for their common name in a site like wikipedia to determine their species and Family names.

I will correct your first gallery entry, (which I dont think should be used anyway along with the second). Using such images on the galago or aye-aye page might be acceptable, but you should certainly be able to find much better pictures.

The "species name" is a binomial (2-names) that consists of the genus and species name. The subtaxa in your case is the Family, which should be linked if those in your taxabox are linked.

Common-name (species name) Subtaxa: name
Galago (Otolicnus Galago) Family: Galagidae

And btw - Old World monkeys is not a common name for that particular monkey. Its a mandrill.

Copyright Status

Daeki,

This is not a sufficient copyright status statement (public domain because it is from wikimedia commons). Not all images on Wikimedia Commons are public domain. Many are Creative Commons licensed. There is a big difference and specific use restrictions that must be followed to use CC licensed media.

The copyright status of the pictures from Wikimedia Commons can be found in a grey box under the pictures. You must copy the contents of that box.

Try to use flickr photos if possible. You should find lots of good ones there.

Extra Credit

Here's your extra credit project: (creationist books). The links in red are the files you should create. You can get the page template here - Template:Books. Start with that book and proceed through the rest of the list on the books page. Only do a few to get started and then let me check them to be sure you are doing it right. You can check the other book files for help with formatting.

You will create the book descriptions by copy and pasting the descriptions from the following webpage, and uploading the pictures you'll find there also. Only create pages for the books that you can find at the following location, which should be most of them.

http://store.nwcreation.net/bookindex.html

You should be able to figure out how to the use template. There are 2 places in the template that say Book Title, where you should paste in the title. Paste the description where it says "Description Here" and then add the link to the book's page on the nwcreation.net store so it link to Purchase Book Title.

Note that some books, like "Alien Intrusion", have accessory items listed below the book, like a companion video, or audio book. You should link to those below Purchase Book Title where it says Purchase Accessory, changing the word accessory to the title of the accessory and follow with the approprate description like - Audio book, or Companion video.

Book files

Daeki,

Remember to use the title of the book as the file name. This one (The Big Argument: Does God Exist? By John Ashton) was not done that way.

Also remember to include the [[category:book]] tag in with the summary.

Eagle

No - Stick to Eagle. But note that Accipitridae contains more than eagles. It also includes kites and vultures. Your topic is just the eagles.--Mr. Ashcraft 17:58, 10 February 2007 (EST)

Plant uploads

OK - thanks. I deleted the originals that had been uploaded to the Eng-only site. I also fixed the Korean plant taxobox headers.
