Hi, Beishanlong; nice shark stuff (no need to put WIP header on - we generally wait a while before ripping into articles) Smiley.gif This message brought to you by: Toastrespondand honey 12:21, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! I eventually wanna bring up the article to Featured status....hopefully. --Beishanlong grandis 17:33, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, we don't do "featured status" here, but we do do two things when articles are exceptionally good - include them in our "best of" categories, and/or make them "cover stories". While it's unlikely an article on cartilaginous predators will ever be a cover story (too off-mission), there's a chance it could force us to start a "best of articles about some species/genus/family/critter" or something. (But it's unlikely). Anyway, the reason I came here was to ask if you'd like to go check my capitalization on the picture captions at fossil. By the way, my dad has always been an avid fossil collector (want to know his email password? You have two guesses...), and now that he has been out of New England (fossil barren territory), he's put together a lot of interesting dinosaur leg fossil thingies. He has quite the collection, including bucketloads of shark's teeth he hands out as party favors. Hmm, I think there's a whale shark tooth photo we can muck up shark with...

Per your suggestion, I'll respond here. I live in New England too! New York to be exact, and believe me, for a long while, I thought there were no fossils here. But, I went on a few trips upstate (I forget where exactly), and went fossil hunting with the New York Paleontology Society and picked up a few fossil crabs, and then we went to another carboniferous outcrop, and I picked up some nice carboniferous (350 million years ago, give or take) shark teeth. I'm not much for the mid-west (it gets cold there in the winter, and I hate cold and snow). If I had to choose the ideal place to live in for fossil collecting and could choose my own weather conditions, I would choose PCS Lee Creek phosphate mine in North Carolina, b/c its well known for its excellently preserved shark teeth and other Miocene/Pliocene fossils. My second choice would be Hell Creek, Montana, for its well-preserved dinosaur fossils. Thanks! --Beishanlong grandis 03:44, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
Not to pick nits, but NY isn't in NE. And does have some sedimentary formations, I think (of course). Haha, my dad lives in NC, and has a bumper sticker that says "I dig phosphate". Yeah, he's crazed. But his dino legs are awesome. Personally, my choice would be to go home to Wales/UK, where every damn period seems to be exposed somewhere. Of course, America is dinosaur central, but still... Anyway, yeah, fossils are really cool, and fossil hunting is awesome. I miss it, really should try to get out of granite central sometime and go find some... ħumanUser talk:Human 03:58, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
Well, I've always considered NY to be in the NE. Oh well. I have a trilobite from Wales somewhere. I'll upload a pic of it tomorrow. You could always take a trip and go fossil hunting in Peru before their ban on fossil exportation takes effect. I went a few years ago, and though it was expensive, (2 grand for 4 days, not including flight) I did manage to get two nice Peruvian megs, great whites, and a truckload (literally, the back of the truck was filled with teeth and pinniped stuff). I actually had to throw away some of my clothes to make room for the teeth on the trip back home, lol! It sure was worth it though, at least for me, you have to be careful, there are a lot of scam artists out there who take you out to the desert and take your money and leave you there, or just take your money and disappear. --Beishanlong grandis 04:07, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Awesomeness[edit]

Due to your awesomeness you have been made a sysop. Ace McWickedDisco Jesus 23:17, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

He apologized, you don't have to be so harsh (yet). FlareTalk 04:06, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
I only said it once, here. Sorry if I didn't catch up the thread I copied its words from. ħumanUser talk:Human 07:27, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
I also didn't act. I only THREATENED in the direst, meanest way I could. And will surely soon forget. ħumanUser talk:Human 07:30, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
