    Hi All,

    A small handful of us have been working on improving the cp related articles on Wikipedia. Recently, we decided to tackle the Sarracenia article, aided by Denis Barthel from Germany (he worked on the german Wikipedia and we both translated material back and forth). The article is pretty much completed, but I would appreciate feedback from all of you so that it can be improved further into a really top-notch article. Feel free to edit the article yourself (anyone can, but please use encyclopedic language and cite your sources) or leave comments on this thread or on the article's talk page and I will integrate.

    Thank you for your help!

    Just a little nitpick, you should probably make the floral formula actual text rather than an image.

    Here's the code in case you need it:
    Code Sample
    Ca<sup>5</sup> Co<sup>5</sup> A<sup>∞</sup> G<sup><u>(5)</u></sup>[/QUOTE]

    The infinity symbol should really be inputted as "& infin;" with the space taken out after the & (when posted the forum displays it as the symbol of course).

    Thank you! It's fixed now - I had written it as a math formula, but this text version is definately more space efficient.

    Wow Noah. That is awsome! Very thorough. And you mentioned NASC! Thank you.

    The only thing I noticed is that you reference the ICPS without any explanation. Its not 'til lower down in the article that you explain what that is.

    Excellent job!

    Bugs - Yup! The first picture and the one of the labeled pitcher (Hummer's Autumnal Splendor) are from your collection!

    PAK - Thanks for pointing that out, I fixed it. Thanks for the comments, too, glad you like it! If we could only get more cp'ers involved in this project, it could turn into the best cp resource on the net. For example, check out:

    Nepenthes rajah (I wasn't involved at all in this one)
    Drosera
    Pinguicula
    Drosera anglica

    By and large, however, CP pages are nonexistent or too short to be informative.

    Thumbs up

    Nice job Noah. That's about the most professional looking and informitive wiki page I have seen. I'm sticking it in my favorites for future reference.

    Wow. Never expected to have my babies in a pitcher plant related article. I am shocked you would use mine. Thanks. Even got kudos from the wife!! AND the NASC and the ICPS are both mentioned. Good work, Noah! Thank you for using pics of my kiddies. I see you are stilled infatuated with the Tibbie plants!
