Whale Shark[edit]

Why exactly is the whale shark entry being removed repeatedly? EvergreenFir (talk) 20:15, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

I don't know, but I know that when I tried to add a Whale, 3-4 times as long as these other fish, the person said that a whale is not classified as a fish, something I thought might be the case, technically, but many people aren't going to know this; and therefore this list will be highly-misleading. I have added a warning note at the top, which hopefully will remain in the document. Misty MH (talk) 05:41, 29 June 2019 (UTC) Misty MH (talk) 05:42, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
I have removed it. We can assume that fish =/= whale is common knowledge these days - sorry. In any case this has nothing to do with the whale shark, which undoubtedly IS a fish. --Elmidae (talk · contribs) 16:21, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

How does one edit a list that is numbered?[edit]

How does one edit a list that is numbered? Does it automatically update, or does one have to do that all manually? Misty MH (talk) 22:07, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

  • @Misty MH: You're referring to the table in the first section of the article, right? Yeah, the numbering is done manually (so if you were to add an entry somewhere in the middle, you'd have to bump the numbers of the following rows up). I'm not sure how easy it is to edit the table using the visual editor, but in the source editor, it should be relatively easy to add a new row based on the examples of the existing wikitext (i.e. you can just copy-paste the code for one of the existing rows, and change the values). Colin M (talk) 20:31, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. So, I had to manually renumber them all. Can't believe we have to do something like this in 2019! Misty MH (talk) 23:04, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

NEED to add Blue WHALE somewhere to a List of largest SEA LIFE?[edit]

In recent decades, whales have been excluded as "fish", and so an editor removed my addition of maybe the largest sea life by far, the blue whale. Someone NEEDs to add Blue WHALE somewhere to a List of largest SEA LIFE, or change THIS list to include such. I didn't find such a list when I looked. Misty MH (talk) 02:14, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

I assume "recent decades" is meant to imply "the last two centuries"? In any case, there's List of largest mammals and Largest organisms for your reading pleasure. --Elmidae (talk · contribs) 13:53, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
