This extinct genus is included in Category:New World monkeys as "†Branisella", which means that it gets indexed in the category under "†". This seems odd to me, and I was going to change it, but it occurred to me that this might be intentional, so I thought this would be a good place to ask. I observe that Noropithecus is not indexed that way in Category:Old World monkeys

Updated primates article[edit]

Hey there, I have added a lot of information onto a primates article White-nosed saki. I went to the assessments portal to request a re-assessment but have seen there haven't been any new posts since 2021, so I wasn't sure if the portal was still active. I was wondering where I could go about getting a new assessment done on this updated article? It is currently sitting as a 'stub' but I would love for someone to check it out and reassess it if possible. Vikster28 (talk) 06:36, 12 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I would also love to receive a peer review but when I go to type in my article name into the provided template, it tells me it doesn't exist. How would I go about getting a peer review? I'd appreciate any help since I'm not sure why it didn't work. Vikster28 (talk) 07:06, 12 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Vikster28:, I've reassessed it as B-class. This (or WikiProject Mammals) are the best places to request a reassessment. Very few people watch the reassessment portals. I'm not sure why the peer review request didn't work; you were following the instructions at Wikipedia:Peer review/guidelines? Plantdrew (talk) 20:41, 12 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you very much for checking it out and doing that! I appreciate your time. Yes, I was following the instructions but for some reason it kept saying that my article didn't exist once I had hyperlinked it. I'll give it another go. Vikster28 (talk) 04:53, 13 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Galago (genus) taxonomic changes[edit]

See talk:Galago (genus) but, in brief, taxonomic changes have occurred over the last few years, and this article has several points that are related to species removed to other genera. Also, the article could use a taxonomic history section. UtherSRG (talk) 14:34, 2 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Primate help desk?[edit]

Not sure where to take this question within Wikipedia, but I’m hoping to identify the species of monkey in this photograph.

Thanks in advance for any pointers. Best, jengod (talk) 19:55, 14 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It is some kind of capuchin monkey, probably genus Cebus. Anything ID more detailed would be purely speculative. UtherSRG (talk) 21:22, 14 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Tremendous! Thank v much User:UtherSRG jengod (talk) 21:43, 14 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Could someone look at this article? The premise (that these are the ten largest) is uncited, so the entire article looks like WP:OR. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 16:06, 23 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It looks like a possibly allowable form of WP:SYNTH. I dunno. Go ahead and flag it for better scrutiny, please. - UtherSRG (talk) 17:11, 23 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

See this post from Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Mammals : 10+ individuals primates pages needing Wikiprojects Assessment/Tags[edit]

Many pages of animals do not have either wikiprojects attached to them or even existant talk pages, on this linked post i listed in my sandbox (since otherwise it would clogged a lot) about 300 such pages, some of which are pertinent to this wikiproject, notably 5 individual chimpanzees and 5 other individual primates pages. There is probably also a few others pages that could be pertinent to this project.

Project-independent quality assessments[edit]

Quality assessments by Wikipedia editors rate articles in terms of completeness, organization, prose quality, sourcing, etc. Most wikiprojects follow the general guidelines at Wikipedia:Content assessment, but some have specialized assessment guidelines. A recent Village pump proposal was approved and has been implemented to add a |class= parameter to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, which can display a general quality assessment for an article, and to let project banner templates "inherit" this assessment.

No action is required if your wikiproject follows the standard assessment approach. Over time, quality assessments will be migrated up to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, and your project banner will automatically "inherit" any changes to the general assessments for the purpose of assigning categories.

However, if your project has decided to "opt out" and follow a non-standard quality assessment approach, all you have to do is modify your wikiproject banner template to pass {{WPBannerMeta}} a new |QUALITY_CRITERIA=custom parameter. If this is done, changes to the general quality assessment will be ignored, and your project-level assessment will be displayed and used to create categories, as at present.
