    Shameful aftermath of my failure to read a post thoroughly. . .expunged!

    @Roderic Page: Agreed, we need to be more explicit about what exactly it is that is trusted. We are currently tossing around ideas about this. One suggestion would be to display the name for which a given data object is trusted in the media collection context. So instead of just saying TRUSTED next to the thumbnail in the media collection, it would say TRUSTED for Lethrinus variegatus. This would then make it more obvious that there is some kind of a conflict between the trusted data provided by the content partner and the placement of the media object on EOL. The user would still have to do some work to find out what that conflict is. But at least the focus of the TRUSTED label would be made explicit.

    @Roderic Page: We're choosing to address the issue of data quality through a combination of efforts: better interfaces to help diagnose issues, improved curation tools, and more dialog with our data sources to share EOL comments with them. Notwithstanding obvious errors such as you reported, what is "trusted" today may become "untrusted" tomorrow as the state of knowledge improves or better articles are presented, so "trusted-ness" in EOL is a combination of a) quality sources plus b) active curation plus c) a platform that is sufficiently transparent to expose issues where they exist (and enable them to be fixed without coding).

    @Cyndy Parr: Nice (but the broader issue of "trusted" needs to be addressed). Oh, and why does the "media" tab still say "13 Media" when there are now only 7 images? Is it still counting the now hidden fish images?

    As you'll see we've cleaned up the media gallery, and Patrick picked a nice exemplar photo, but it would still be helpful if someone with expertise (that would probably be you, Rod) could review the remaining photos and trust or untrust accordingly.

    Patrick Leary set "A pinch? It wasn't me!" as an exemplar on "Leptograpsus".
