Opinion needed

Just wandering if this article should be a subpage of Archaea or it is better to stand by itself. Dalton Holland Baptista 03:23, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

I was wondering the same thing. I have no easy answer and i could see this article being quite interesting. Although the list itself should probably be a catalog or maintained as masterlists, similar to Leptotes/Related Articles/Masterlist.
In short now that we actually have several writers interested in taxonomy we could probably work out our own system. So feel free to experiment with different ideas and see what works best. This project is young enough that we are not yet fixed into a particular format or style. To coin a phrase, "the world is your oyster". Chris Day 03:26, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
Well Chris, this will be good to see because I am not sure as yet about the best place to host the orchids taxonomy page. As I see it, it is not really an article, however, it migh be good to have it easy to anyone checking the article. I guess I should explain there all decisions and references (to be) used to this subject and might also work as a discussion about it case more people starts writing about this subject. For instance, there are some genera where there is no consensus at all about how to call them, although some decision will have to be made because probably we will have only one article to each species and it is not good to have two taxonomic choices mixed. (a side note: is the English language correction army ready? No, Orchid is not finished as yet) Dalton Holland Baptista 03:52, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
I think as you write more you will find a system that works well for you. Things you decide now might actually not work as well as you expect. Another issue is how well you have the 'lay of the land'. There may be CZ specific things you have yet to discover and that might change your opinion on how to organise the articles. Or you may have a new idea, something that was not possible in the wikipedia environment but will work well here. Be creative. Chris Day 04:24, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
