How is this an appropriate appendix for a dictionary? —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 03:41, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

I was thinking the same thing --Stubborn Pen (talk) 23:25, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

Doesn't seem like an appropriate dictionary page. DCD's gonna have some strong arguments for keeping, though --Stubborn Pen (talk) 23:31, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

It has two funtions:
  1. yet another list of taxa that might appear in books and articles
  2. a target for links from the entries, which link also served to mark the taxa as modern model organisms.
About 35 taxon entries link to it. Fewer than 50 of the taxa in the Appendix have entries.
Yes check.svg Done The first function is served just about as well if it were a user page, especially now that we have Wiktionary:Redlink dumps Yes check.svg Done.
Yes check.svg Done The second function could be served better by linking to the corresponding WP appendix, which is actively maintained and seems to have 50% more entries.
IOW, I don't really care, but would like to have enough time to replace the links with WP links. DCDuring TALK 02:15, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Unfortunately it's too big for WT:BJAODN, but it sounds ideal for it. Renard Migrant (talk) 17:38, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
