    Yes, you are right gamerslayer! I find big spiders both scary and fascinating at the same time.

    Cyndy Parr commented on "Weird Life":

    I joined the community Friends of Weird Life but don't have manager rights to the Weird Life collection yet. Can someone help?


    Also, as an aside, if you search for "Friends of wierd life" (misspelling) the "did you mean" suggestion is "Oriental erd mite" which itself is pretty weird.

    Hey Chris, if you make me a manager (go to my profile and select "Make a manager") I'll help build this out.

    Hey Matt, CNN used this image in their story about EOL on their Schools of Thought blog

    Cyndy Parr commented on "Rapid Response team":

    Valter, not sure that is a problem -- we have at least two different views for that taxon so the image should show up on both. ITIS considers it to be Muscari comosum while Catalogue of Life considers it to be Leopoldia comosa. Each refers to the other name as a synonym. At the moment we favor COL as the default name on the basic page.

    Cyndy Parr commented on an older version of Sphyrapicus varius:

    I've trusted it again. Are there other tags that are missing, Tanya? Let's see if we can get those into the Description.

    This collection is going to be amazing when we can show it as an image thumbnail gallery.

    Cyndy Parr commented on "Rapid Response team":

    Valter, there are a *lot* of duplicate Pyrus communis pages, but there are also a lot of varieties, hybrids, etc. We'll see what we can do to clean it up.

    Hy Jen if you get a chance you might go through the "MOST WANTED" collections and remove the ones that have gotten images!

    Cyndy Parr commented on "Help needed":

    Then if you group them into their own collections you can use the collection description to say what you think is needed (then you don't have to put it with each item).


    Do you need help moving them to a new collection?

    Cyndy Parr commented on "Help needed":

    Sam, I think that because there are so many Ocean Hall pages that need help, you should move them to their own collection and then add that collection to the Help Needed group. You could even make more than one collection: Ocean Hall pages that need images, Ocean Hall pages that need text, Ocean Hall pages that need both text and images. Or something like that.

    Cyndy Parr commented on "Key":

    As this is a key, I wonder if it belongs under identification resources, though because there is a lot of morphological detail I wonder if it goes under Morphology. It doesn't really go under Comprehensive Description becuase it doesn't cover broad aspects of biology.

    the font on this is very small -- that's kind of strange...

    Cyndy Parr commented on "Taxon images":

    Something is wrong here because this object is titled "Taxon images" but all it has in it is the genus name. Is this supposed to be a link?
