HMS Serapis (1779)[edit]

Hi TaintedMustard, I reverted your change of "Fifth Rate" to "fifth rate". The reason I did so was because "fifth rate" is an adjective, as in, for example, "he has a fifth rate mind". "Fifth Rate" is the name of a class, and a noun, as in "She was an XXXX class Fifth Rate". Also, the "Fifth Rate" form was the one the Admiralty used at the time, and precisely for the reason above. Whenever I come across the incorrect form "fourth rate", etc. I correct it. However, so much to do, and so little time. Regards, Acad Ronin (talk) 18:09, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Tropical plants[edit]

Hello, How are you? I need your help. I thank you your help in the articles. I ask you: Can you find more people willing writing in tropical trees, genera and families? I ask you if you could enlarge some articles making better known this group of trees in Wikipedia, adding links to genera and families and writing information and asking people if they are interested in writing about topics as tropical trees articles, tropical forest articles or botanical or biodiversity articles. Do you know Wikipedia forums that could be interested about these type of articles? They are welcome too. I thank you very much.

I am from Spain and my mother language is not English language. Many country side areas, and Natural areas and Living beings are in Countries where population cannot collaborate with Wikipedia, but their Natural World and its highly economically valuable species are very important too in the human knowledge and developtment of the mankind. People should have information because these matters are important, not just a curiosity only. This unknow world is from Poles to ecuator, in unoccupied oceanic areas closely to Europe, in Deserts as Sahara, or whatever. But to me the main aim is to gather the abundant information disperse about living communities and living beings that have existed for millions of years because they are disappearing and in 20 years they will are not longer exist.
