  • Staraptor, you can't continue creating pages with little content. You have to fill in those pages with good content in order for readers to enjoy them. Thank you.

    • I don't have time anymore. I am average 40+ hours at work. It's also proof that it took me this long to reply, but I don't come here often. I just don't have time anymore. I'm just now even seeing this.

      From the FAQs page:

      How come many pages are blank?
      Because there are [almost 11,000] species of birds. Many are very rare and/or new, in this case, there might not be much info.

      How come this [insert page name here] has no info?
      As I've said before, there are [almost 11,000] species of birds and many of them are very rare and some are new, in which case they might not be in some of the older guides.

      From Taxonomy in Flux:
      As of May 28, 2018, the TiF list contains 10928 species in 2406 genera, 251 families, and 46 orders.

  • I'm just asking, why is this wiki called All Birds Wiki when all animals are featured here? Can you please change the name? Thank you!

    • If you scroll down, you will see I've already answered this.

      "Originally, this was supposed to be a bird wiki, but the name stuck.

      http://allbirdsoftheworld.wikia.com/wiki/All_Birds_Wiki%3AFrequently_Asked_Questions "

      "I don't get it either. :/ Birds, reptiles, fish, mammals, insects, amphibians, other invertebrates are all animals. Who cares about paraphyly and monophyly? We all share the same ancestor. Hell, we should all be called reptiles, because the amniote ancestors were reptile-like.

      "Besides, the name stuck. I heard it's a pain in the arse to change a wiki's name. Doesn't sound like it's worth it, really."


      I don't know how nor do I have the time either. I've worked very hard to make this wiki look nice. I'm very busy and don't have motivation lately.

      Thank you for understanding.

  • I’m from TCH, but should we include dinosaur pages, especially Eumaniraptora as maniraptorformes comprise of the closest relatives of birds?

  • May I kindly ask you why did you change the images I put on pages like Eurasian Jackdaw? I didn't take them from the web, they were all photos made by me, except from the augur buzzard images (taken from Wikipedia), that you didn't delete.

    I repeat I am saying this kindly, it is not my intention to offend you.

    • Shoot. I'm sorry. No, you didn't offend me. I thought they were stolen. And is it possible to convert them to PNGs? They don't show the blurry edging when they're thumbnails. And, it's easy to do. Just open up Paint, select "save as", and on the dropdown option, select PNG and done.

  • Hi Staraptor, I am editing some pages in the Birds Wikia (maybe you know it). It is a beautyful wiki but nobody is editing it since 2014! I am the only one who still edits it. Can you please help me editing some pages on that wiki?

  • Hi,

    Following up on your comment on the Technical Update, I made some changes and restore the Facebook Like Box on Template:Maintop with the updated code from FB that uses div tags. The Help page still needs to be updated with this info, I apologize that it has not been done yet. You can see some of the parameters available for this at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/like-box-for-pages if you want to try some different things. Let me know if you have any questions!

  • I made a wiki about hornbills toucans and spoonbills and would you help with it?

      Loading editor
  • I think you should delete all the pages that aren't about birds so the wiki is birds only. Just saying.

    • Yes, please. If you don't like AWU, please make your own wiki that YOU can edit and make it look nice. I've edited ABW almost 40,000 times. I've worked hard to make it look nice, and have book, magazine, website references for species pages instead of Wikipedia. I also appreciate YellowToad's contributions too. He makes ABW look nice too.

      Please, end this now.

    • Looks like we won!

      Also screw you. This is our wiki. Quit forcing this BS upon us. Or forever feel our wrath! Muahaha.

      Thank you.

  • You are like the only user on this wiki and you have done a great job! Is there any way I can help? I have tried adding a few pics to photos. Can i do anything more? I love birds and this wiki seems really cool.

  • Something weird's going on with that Ten Flags blog post. I made two comments, one a few hours ago and one just now. They show up on Recent Wiki Activity but they don't actually show up on the page. At the top of the page it says "7 comments" and at the bottom "5 comments". And the website for some reason refused to let me start a new line (I can now

    - see). Definetely weird.

    • Something else that's really weird: I recently started a new wikia, with achievements enabled. I am so far the only (human) contributor. I make my 65th edit, and suddenly I get a badge message: "Congratulations! You have just received the Lucky Edit badge for making the lucky 2'000th edit to the wikia!"

    • Sounds like a bug... might wanna contact Wikia.
