    Cyndy Parr commented on "Reptiles of New York City":

    Great idea for a collection! I'm assuming these have to live in the wild for you to count them? I encourage you to write a brief description of the collection and why you are making it.

    Cyndy Parr commented on "Trogium pulsatorium (Linnaeus, 1758)":

    @Cyndy Parr: Actually, because you didn't leave the comment on the offending object itself, Calphotos may not get the error report. I'll go over to that object and leave your message.

    @Stephen Thorpe: Thanks for spotting this! If you are right, looks like it has been misidentified since 2007 here: http://calphotos.berkeley.edu/cgi/img_query?seq_num=221768&one=T. As I'm not an entomologist I'll let Katja fix it or Calphotos may fix it at the source and it will get updated here.

    Hi Tim, it happens that we don't (yet) automatically turn "http://..." into a live link, but you can include the HTML markup if you want people to go directly to your blog posts.

    @Vince Smith: Too bad Katja took care of it -- I was going to have Vince do it live during our workshop while everyone else watched.

    @Bob Corrigan: Indeed, that's why Chris included the link in the collection description :-) We'll build the collection slowly, as we have time.

    Phosphorescent is spelled wrong here. It would also be nice to know a little bit more about this organism.

    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.

    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.
