When it is an animal it should be [[Animalia]] and
not [[Animal]]ia .
Vernacular names are also difficult to use. The point being we have to
discuss this and we have to be willing to cooperate. I would really
welcome one Taxobox that is acceptable and usable by all wikipedia.
These are naming convention issues and are thus specific to each Wikipedia. On
the English Wikipedia we use, well, English to name articles. Redirects should
exist so that such a standardized taxobox would work on any language wiki.

This list is not about en:wikipedia, it is about cooperation between the
wikipedia's. Your rants and raves are about the en:ToL; how great it is.
Well, it is and it is provincial because the data in en:ToL is of
WikiSpecies has a general usable and available Taxobox. There is a
parameter to the Taxobox function that is provided on call time by the
local wikipedia. The parameter holds the local vernacular name, it is
optional. Your choise. See my point? Nothing lost to en:ToL no problems
with naming conventions, big gains to all wikipedias.
We have to discuss taxoboxes, how can we make taxoboxes more usable. If
you refuse to discuss it, it is not very wiki, not according to the
cooperative spirit of this wikiworld. So naming conventions need to be
discussed. Do you have a clue about why the French or German Taxoboxes
are as they are, what revisions they use of nomenclature? Might there be
something in there for en: too? Do you know ??
As you dismiss all arguments without seeing further than just en: you
invalidate all your arguments. To me it is all more of the same.
Unhelpfull, hiding what you stand for .. What do you stand for ? How is
it helpfull to others, to me ?
