Please leave these. They categorize into Category:Entries missing English vernacular names of taxa and allow me to create lists of the most frequently "wanted" vernacular names, that is those that appear within {{vern}} on the most pages. See User:DCDuring/vern. Removing {{vern}} makes it less likely that I or anyone else using the frequency list will add the name. Feel free to add entries for such names.

Sure, as long as someone is going down the list and correcting them. No one else is going to be, since you make it look like it's a new policy to change redlinks to wikipedia ones. — LlywelynII 18:30, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
Correcting? It's not wrong to omit them. I insert {{vern}} whenever I find a redlinked vernacular name. There are a few users who follow my practice for new entries in their languages. As a result vernacular names used in definitions in their entries get entered before other vernacular names. Chinese, Cebuano, Tagalog, and Kikuyu are languages with contributors who use both {{taxlink}} and {{vern}}. DCDuring (talk) 20:45, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Capitalizing Arabic romanizations[edit]

Arabic doesn't use majuscules, and thus we do not represent them in our romanisations. For further information, see WT:About Arabic. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:04, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

Well, that's an idiosyncratic and mistaken policy that seems unhelpful for our users but I don't edit Arabic entries much and it's certainly easier to just let the template spit everything out the same. Thanks for letting me know. Kindly remember not to delete other non-disputed aspects with your uncorrected reverts concerning particular points of an edit. — LlywelynII 21:19, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
