What? We're actually including a article for something that never appeared or had anthing, whatsoever to do with in the series?! I know this is a dedicated site, but there's a line that has to be drawn somewhere and I think this is crossing it! If we want to link the word "dinosaur" on this site, we could just link it to wikipedia's article. ---General Ironbeak

Regardless of whether or not you think the topic in question should or shouldn't be included, simply dumping a link to Wikipedia in place the content of the article is the wrong move. Our articles are intended to inform the reader about the subject in relation to what appears in the books, which is what the article currently does. If you just dump the Wikipedia link in there, it no longer serves that purpose. In any case, we have a number of other such articles for things that are merely mentioned; there's nothing unique about the dinosaur article in that regard.

I still don't see what the point of this article is, since dinosaurs are never in the series, and were only mentioned once in passing. ---General Ironbeak
Since no one is responding, I may as well remove the article. ---General Ironbeak
Again, please sign in to make your edits, and please use four tildes to post your signature. In any case, no, you should not remove the article. If you truly believe that the article does not belong, then the correct procedure is to add the tag {{Delete|Explanation}} at the top of the page, with your reasoning as to why you feel it should be deleted where it says "Explanation." That puts it up for a discussion by the community. ProfessorTofty 03:52, February 11, 2012 (UTC)

Even though dinosaurs are exist and don't appear in the novels or films just imagine if they were alive who knows what could happen?Chavez45able 06:49, February 27, 2012 (UTC)

The recent edit

Although the recent edit was reverted as "unhelpful", I can see why it was made, as the article as it stands is inaccurate; dinosaurs lived throughout the Mesozoic Era, not just in the Triassic as the article currently states. Many dinosaurs lived in the Jurassic (hence the name of the Michael Chrichton novel and movie), and one of the most famous dinos of all, T.Rex, lived in the Cretaceous. The article should be edited again to reflect this. — RobertATfm (talk) 16:52, December 25, 2012 (UTC)
