Haha! Thank you. A bit of OCD goes a long way! --Cat 11:46, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

So at first I thought you were having issues with this page Rhinecanthus rectangulus, Humuhumunukunukuapua'a is quite a name. Is there a reason you chose that as the primary name over a more english name? If I don't hear back from you I'm going to update it. --Brian 00:03, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your edits, looks like you are doing a great job. Let me know if there is anything you need from me --Brian (talk) 20:47, 11 November 2017 (UTC)


To answer your questions:

1) Yes there are some pages and templates missing. This was due to the fact that we had hundreds of spam edits daily and the DB ended up maxed out on size (on disk). I had to take some action to clean up the legacy of these bots, and some stuff appears to have been removed in the process. I have a local backup of the wiki from a bit ago, but most of the missing pages I have gone looking for are missing from that too. The WayBack machine may be of some help here, but I haven't looked yet.

2) I removed that page redirecting to the Blank page. If you stay around for a bit Cat and I will talk about giving you the mod powers to do some of the more destructive actions :)

3) Generally it is better form to make a typo-ed page redirect to the correct page. That way external links or internal links still work. However as you seem to be hinting at, a redirect that is a typo shouldn't be linked to though (or really mentioned otherwise).

As for my absence, you can blame my 3 yr old and 4 month old for that :) Catt and I are always around and take care of spam in 1-2 days.

Also you can write --~~~~ to auto-sign your comments

Done! It just needs the id number in the code (look in the edit source option). You can get the id code for the species either from the Fishbase URL or if it says the species name instead, if you go to the species' synonym page you'll be able to see the id code in that Fishbase URL. Does that make sense?? --Cat (talk) 17:42, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
