It's wrong to categorize all the -illions as Greek-based names. The -illions' names all come from Latin, disregarding extensions like Bowers' system. Cookiefonster (talk) 11:19, October 15, 2015 (UTC)

My mistake. I'll remember that.

How about Category:Latin-based name? Are we adding too many categories? -- ☁ I want more clouds! ⛅ 14:48, October 16, 2015 (UTC)

Okay, I looked up how many animals there are in the world, and there are over 20 quintillion of animals in total, and that's actually true, so why remove it?

Because every piece of information on the wiki needs to have a source for justification of the information, otherwise we have no idea if it's true. It's just like with Wikipedia. Just find a website (preferably a trustworthy one) that mentions that fact and cite it as a source. Cookiefonster (talk) 01:23, December 31, 2015 (UTC)
here is where 20 quintillion comes from. the original source is here but Tomasik never claims that there are 20 quintillion living beings; he just has a table of estimated populations for some taxonomic groups. the former article decided they would add up his numbers and call that the total number of animals. not a trustworthy figure imo. guhh i fail at biology never mind. -- vel! 03:19, December 31, 2015 (UTC)
