    @Yan Wong: Thanks, Would you know Jeremy Rice's email ID or any other email ID where I can clarify a couple of quick questions regarding the Pages API? Also, is there a limit on how many calls I can make with a licence with Page API per day / hour?

    @Abhishek Shivkumar: That's a good question. I have't tried getting deep down into the pages before. It might just be timing out, I guess. This is probably a question for Jeremy Rice

    I want to get complete details using the Page API for page id = 282. It has around 800K images ! and so I see in the Page API that I have to make a call in phases of 75 images per call (images_per_page = 75 & images_page=1.. and then again images_per_page = 75 & image_page = 2 .. and so on). I seem to not get a response back from the server after few calls (like 45 calls or something). Is there a way to get the complete json description of this page id = 282 in a single shot? Thanks Abhishek S

    @Benjamin J. Crain: Sorry Benjamin, we've been having trouble with the Flickr import for a while. We are planning a one-time harvest soon just to get caught up on all the images we've been missing over the last few months, but I don't know when regular harvests will resume. Are your students taking pictures of wild organisms in the field or are these museum specimens?

    @José R Ferrer-Paris: Sorry, I missed your reply. Adding species to Wikipedia will work to get them added to EOL. The only problem right now is that Wikipedia imports are on hold. When they start up again, hopefully soon, your species should become available on EOL.

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Thomas Horn: The Wikipedia import is on hold at the moment. I'm not sure when it will resume. We are working on a new way of harvesting Wikipedia that will cover all languages and will result in better taxon coverage. So far we've only harvested the English version, and we are only harvesting family level and below. The work list is not currently filtered by language. There will be better language filters in the new version of EOL that's currently under development.

    @Thomas Horn: Hi Thomas, a member of the staff will reply to your question - we've got folks on the road right now so there's a bit of a delay. Thanks.

    Thomas Horn commented on "EOL Curators":

    How can I make sure, that Wikipedia articles are found by EOL and subsequently are available in the curator working list? I input German common names of taxa but Wikipedia articles seem not to be recognized (after two weeks). Furthermore the working list does not appear to be filtered by language since English Wikipedia articles are in the "German" list. Thanks!

    José R Ferrer-Paris commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Katja Schulz: The problem is that some endemic andean butterflies do not show in any of the taxonomies of EOL (for example Diaphanos huberi, Steromapedaliodes sanchezi, and the new species of Redonda). I already have wikipedia entries for some species, for example for Redonda chiquinquirana there are entries in the english (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redonda_chiquinquirana) and spanish wikipedia (https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redonda_chiquinquirana) and on wikispecies (https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Redonda_chiquinquirana). Will they get automatically included when the wikipedia content gets harvested again?

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @José R Ferrer-Paris: The best way to add a new species to EOL is to upload content for them. Usually, uploading an image to Flickr or adding a Wikipedia articles about the species will do the trick. However, at the moment, the updating of large resources like Flickr and Wikipedia is on hiatus due to some much needed rebuilding of our harvesting code. So it would take a while for the species to get to EOL that way. If you could produce a small resource about the species based on your paper, we could use that to add the species quickly. Do you have images or text that you could upload to EOL for each of the species you want to add to the taxonomy?
