Biology Workweek Mock-ups

Main page

Here's the .svg, if anyone wants to work on it. I think the rest of the pencil needs shading, and maybe the amoeba needs to pop more.

Hi! I'm an amoeba and I write Citizendium articles. So can you!
Biology Week is on!
Join us this week, September 22-28

You're invited to work on high priority articles, or simply start a new one!
It's a Workgroup Week. If an amoeba can participate, so can you!

(Are you new? This is a good day to get a Quick Start.)

Workgroup Page

If someone wants to format this better, that would be great. Also, the banner design is still a work in progress. Suggestions are very welcome. Marielle Fields Newsome 11:36, 8 June 2008 (CDT)

Hi Marielle, these look great! For uniformity, though, let's use the name "Biology Week." Also, if I had my pick, I'd put the second one on the main page, because it's fancier...not that I care that much, I really don't.
And, since I haven't said it yet--welcome! It's always nice and encouraging when a new active person shows up!--Larry Sanger 17:35, 8 June 2008 (CDT)

Workgroups are no longer used for group communications, but they still are used to group articles into fields of interest. Each article is assigned to 1 to 3 Workgroups via its Metadata page. Communications formerly occuring in a Workgroup should now take place in the Forum or in individual article Talk pages.

Insect classification, like much of taxonomy, has been going through rather dramatic changes recently. The most complete source for up-to-date classification seems to be ITIS. As such, I've decided that the site will be my final authority on taxonomy. I notice that Wikipedia uses more recent material in their classification, but I'm hesitant to do that, mostly because taxonomy is often interdependent, and one paper does not a new order make.
