    Cyndy Parr commented on "Vanessa cardui":

    They are officially Vanessa these days so we need to fix the name at the top of the page.

    Cyndy Parr commented on an older version of Crossarchus:

    So go ahead and untrust the article -- you can also fix up the Wikipedia article to be more correct (on Wikipedia) and request that we import the version you fixed.

    Cyndy Parr commented on an older version of Description:

    This is filed under "diagnostic description." But this information is not diagnostic. We may need to remap if this is a general problem.

    Cyndy Parr commented on "Headless thumbnails":

    I guess a question is how many of these we have to have before we are justified in adding a "rotate or flip image" function for EOL.

    @Cyndy Parr: Need to be sure to add image objects, not taxa -- I've gone and found the images themselves.

    Cyndy Parr commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    Hey all, have you seen the stats on the home page? We've crossed the million mark for both pages and images. Still keeping fingers crossed that we don't lose some of these in cyberspace.

    Cyndy Parr commented on an older version of Puffinus lherminieri temptator:

    Stijn, you will want to include HTML with that link in the description to make sure it is clickable. Your comments above probably belong in the Details tab in an article with the subject of "Taxonomy". Currently your comments are on this image which isn't actually published yet. If you use "Add an article" you can also add the reference and it will be shown on the references tab.

    Cyndy Parr commented on "MUBARAK":

    According to Wikipedia), here's how you can tell the difference:


    The male is slender, and the blue line is straighter. The female is rounder, producing a bent blue line. Some say that the females look plumper when viewed from above but this is disputed. However, the 'straightness' of the line and the plumpness of the female might occasionally be due to the eggs she is carrying.


    However, this has not yet been reviewed by an expert so I can't guarantee its accuracy.

    Cyndy Parr commented on "Diogo Provete":

    Thanks for your additions, Diogo. If you go to the "Details" tab you can add an article and provide at least an overview of these species. If you want to add more detailed information that would be very welcome. You can cite your papers for the information. Then your papers will show up in the references tab.
