    Hello everyone! I'm new to this community and was wondering if anyone can show me how to organize the content from external contributors (e.g., EOL pages, wikipedia, IUCN), like in this AFRICHTHY page! (http://africhthy.org/category/classification/elasmobranchii/pristiformes/pristidae/pristis/pristis-microdon-latham-1794/p). Thanks!

    @Eli Sarnat: We had originally thought about calling that feature "bookmarks", but the concept of collections took over (I'm glad it did).

    @Jennifer Hammock: I think bookmarks might be the top contender. Thanks, Jen!

    @Eli Sarnat: Good idea, Eli! The other common term I've heard is bookmarks.

    ah, I realize I must have gotten this idea from EOL's 'add to collection' feature!

    Hi folks, I'm working with a drupal developer to add some more modules and help with existing issues for Scratchpads. One module we're developing is a 'Favorites' feature, which allows users to flag any content type as a 'favorite', and it gets added to a 'my favorites' block arranged by category type. The idea is for users to have quick links to content they frequently use or want to keep track of. Just wanted to put this idea out there in case someone here has suggestions or comments on how to improve it. For example, can anyone think of a better name than 'favorites'? One alternative I'm considering is 'My Collection', with 'add to collection' and 'remove from collection' links.

    Attribution fields: a new and improved attribution/copyright module will be added in the next couple of months; stand by for more options for crediting multiple colleagues, people who don't belong to your Scratchpad, etc. For the moment, a Creator field has been added for media files, so feel free to use it. If you'd like to go ahead and add material to your Scratchpad for which the current attribution fields aren't sufficient, be advised you should be able to easily correct the attribution (or anything else) after the fact on large numbers of objects that should all have the same contents in any field. Select Content from your top menu and then select Grid beside any content type you wish to bulk-edit. Use the checkboxes on the left, you'll get the idea.

    Biblio imports: autotagging with taxa, last I checked, was not working yet and Laurence promised to verify whether keywords are going to be included as a source for names for autotagging. If you have a bibliography you're waiting to upload, and you keep taxon names in it in any field other than title or keywords, please sing out!

    Hello, everyone! I spoke with Laurence from the Scratchpads team yesterday. Assorted updates on particular features will follow in a moment. Most important item: if you own a v2 Scratchpad, Laurence should have contacted you recently by email. If anyone's not in touch with him yet, let me know.

    @Nathan Muchhala: Hi, Nathan! Not yet, the Scratchpad team doesn't expect to take it up for a few months; they have some core tasks to take care of first. Meanwhile, we should totally discuss this in the biotic interactions google group. Are you a member? I can send you an invite.

    @John P. Sullivan: Thanks for joining the group, John! Do you have a beta site you want to share? I really like what the Scratchpad developers are doing, and it sounds like there will be some excellent features being rolled out in the near future.

    Just wanted to say: as someone who is already heavily invested in both platforms, please keep me in the loop with developments regarding the eventual porting of Lifedesks into Scratchpads! I've already been giving the Scratchpad developers a lot of my feedback. I've really been impressed with their dedication and the great job they're doing.

    Another note from the Vibrant team: they are eager for feedback about your user experience. Please use the Issues tab freely and be on the lookout for user surveys later this month.

    Hey, Scratchpadians! news from the Vibrant team about upcoming features: Creator fields for media objects - we will implement these soon, sometime this week. Multiple entries in creator fields - initial implementation will be text strings only. We will have a more comprehensive attribution/creator field as part of the Creative Commons/content licensing update (post May 2012). Multiple taxon entries for media objects - this should be possible to change to unlimited. last but not least: We will implement an ecological interactions module at some point. (editor's note: wild cheering!!!)
