Wikispecies

Wikispecies is a wiki-based online project supported by the Wikimedia Foundation. Its aim is to create a comprehensive free content catalogue of all species. Jimmy Wales stated that editors are not required to fax in their degrees, but that submissions will have to pass muster with a technical audience. Wikispecies is available under the GNU Free Documentation License and CC BY-SA 3.0. Started in September 2004, with biologists across the world invited to contribute, the project had grown a framework encompassing the Linnaean taxonomy with links to Wikipedia articles on individual species by April 2005. Benedikt Mandl co-ordinated the efforts of several people who are interested in getting involved with the project and contacted potential supporters in early summer 2004. Databases were evaluated and the administrators contacted, some of them have agreed on providing their data for Wikispecies. Mandl defined two major tasks: Figure out how the contents of the data base would need to be presented—by asking experts, potential non-professional users and comparing that with existing databases Figure out how to do the software, which hardware is required and how to cover the costs—by asking experts, looking for fellow volunteers and potential sponsorsAdvantages and disadvantages were discussed by the wikimedia-I mailing list.

The board of directors of the Wikimedia Foundation voted by 4 to 0 in favor of the establishment of a Wikispecies. The project is hosted at species.wikimedia.org. It was merged to a sister project of Wikimedia Foundation on September 14, 2004. On October 10, 2006, the project exceeded 75,000 articles. On May 20, 2007, the project exceeded 100,000 articles with a total of 5,495 registered users. On September 8, 2008, the project exceeded 150,000 articles with a total of 9,224 registered users. On October 23, 2011, the project reached 300,000 articles. On June 16, 2014, the project reached 400,000 articles. On January 7, 2017, the project reached 500,000 articles.

Geyperman

Geyperman was the name of a Spanish action figure manufactured by the company Geyper during the 1970s. Geyper, although a Hasbro licensee, used Palitoy's product line as the basis for their outfits; the figure itself was a combination of various Hasbro molds, using talker style torsos. The first version had the head of the first G. I. Joefigures with flocked hair, beard and no beard, was available from 1976 to 1979; the Eagle-Eye head mold with fixed eyes was released in Spain only. This was the transitional model and was available from 1978 to 1980, with flocked hair and no beard, the colour of the skin is lighter than the model of second wave 1980-1982, darker and came with both beard and no beard, a body that didn't have the inscriptions Geyper, which the previous models had. Here are a few examples of Geyperman packages, they included a "star" scheme similar to Action Man, for mail-in equipment/figure offers. In most cases, closed box packages included a photo of the item in use, but some like the radio, used painted artwork to display the item.

This type of packaging is close to that used by both Palitoy and Hasbro, for Action Man and G. I. Joe respectively; the graphics were original Hasbro artwork, modified in some instances. This type of packaging was ideal in terms of the child seeing what he would receive; the outfit box artwork was identical to that of Palitoy's line. The following are uniform set graphics, attached to the left side of the box; the box itself was the same format as the sabotage set. The back of the box illustrated the range of outfits and accessories offered for sale by Geyper.| Geyper offered outfits in a smaller package, with the items enclosed in a plastic bag inside a closed box. The Cowboy and "Indian" sets are examples of this type; the back of the packages have photo illustrations of the other. Geyper offered budget carded accessory packs containing just a few items to augment one's collection at a reasonable price for children to afford themselves; the back of the card illustrated other outfits offered by Geyper.

In 1964, Hasbro toy company's first "action figure" was introduced with the name of G. I. Joe, they were 12" tall and represented the four branches of the military: Army, Air Force & Marines. The toyline was dedicated to one character named G. I. Joe and on, the line featured vehicles, talking soldiers and six foreign soldiers; the original 12-inch G. I. Joe was licensed to several countries: to the Spanish company Geyper appearing as Geyperman in the 70s to the UK company Palitoy, appearing as Action Man in the 60s in Germany as Action Team in the 70s in France as Group Action Joe 1976-81 in Brazil as Falcon from Estrella in the 70s in Japan as "GIJOE" and "Combat Man" from Takara in the 60s in Japan from Tsukuda The nineties Action Man was released by Hasbro International for the European market in uniform packaging, no longer licensed to individual companies.
