Anyone spot the problem with this page?
It seems that creatures with an extra pair of legs made their way into the category?
I would like to pretend that I am shocked but I know what non-scientists are like.
This kind of thing is important, though. Owlcation needs to get away from the complete amateur thing and try to make it to the pop science league. I can just about manage that sort of level myself, at a push, but my heart sinks when I see spiders masquerading as insects.
Personally, I reckon they should be targeting teachers (retired or merely poverty stricken) with ads for olwcation, and hinting at a nice trickle of money if they submit useful articles. But hard to do without a real structure.
Arthropodology would probably be the proper classification but it's probably too late to change things now?
It would, but they will probably settle for 'Creepy Crawlies' lol.
Another idea: Instead of renaming the entire category, they should include Arachnology, which is missing presently, and just move those hubs about spiders.
I think that the Hubbers who wrote about spiders may know better, but had no choice but to select Entomology as the next-best topic category for their hubs. However, this miscategorization lessons the authoritative nature of Owlcation.com.
They could retitle the category "Arthropodology and Entomology": I've known them to retitle categories on the main site, so they should be able to do it on the niche sites.
As far as I know, curators decide which category an article belongs in on the niche sites, not the author.
I had a page about power sanders sent to 'appliances' in Dengarden. That looks odd but spiders in Entomology is a real faux pas.
Lo, and behold, an ed with a science degree:
No excuse now.
