    Andrew Whittington commented on an older version of Valonia sp.:

    Not Diptera, Platystomtidae. Needs to be re-assigned.

    @Jason Sharp: happened to me also, and it seemed I could only remedy this by selecting another image to serve as an exemplar.

    @Leo Shapiro: I have made the same 'set as exemplar' mistake.

    @Michаel Frаnkis: I agree with Michael and have also inadvertently created exemplars when trying to click on a thumbnail.

    Michael, You are not the first person from whom I've heard this exact concern. Well, actually, you're the second. Are there more of you out there?

    Michаel Frаnkis commented on "EOL Curators":

    Too easy to hit 'Set as exemplar' accidentally?

    Several times I've created an exemplar unintentionally, just by clicking on a thumbnail anywhere in its lower third. Can it be re-set so that one has to click right on the actual target ring?

    @Jason Sharp: Thanks, that is very helpful--I had not realized the function of that tab.

    Jason Sharp commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Michаel Frаnkis: I use the 'worklist' tab on the taxon page to check images faster than going to each seperate image page. I'm not sure if all curators are aware of that tab.

    @Leo Shapiro: Yes, I agree with Michael. A bulk "Trust" option would be very helpful & less daunting than one-by-one.

    @Leo Shapiro: Yes!! It would save a lot of time to be able to trust several images at once!

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Hi Michael, I know there have been discussions regarding a mechanism for bulk trusting, but it isn't yet scheduled for work. Would others on this list find this helpful?

    Michаel Frаnkis commented on "EOL Curators":

    Bulk trusting of images?

    At times, it would be nice to be able to trust a set of several images together in one go, without having to visit each image page individually; doing so would save a lot of time. I mention this as I have just added nearly 40 images of a taxon to that taxon's page on wiki Commons; in 2 or 3 weeks, all 40 will show up here to be reviewed. As I verified the images before adding them to the Commons page, I already know they are all trustable. But it will take ages to trust each one individually.

    Is this something that could be made feasible?

    @Patrick Coin: No, you can't edit an article written by someone else (as you can on Wikipedia), but if you see an error I would encourage you to add a comment pointing it out.

    Leslie Ries commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Michаel Frаnkis: I wasn't talking about US maps- I was talking about regional maps that are more complete than the global GBIF maps. So, those could be European, African, whatever. Just that if there is a map that is in only part of the species' range, and it was fairly complete, maybe that should be given precedence over a global map that is incomplete (with the caveat that it doesn't represent the full range).

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Quentin Groom: Due to technical limitations, we cannot currently show any of the GBIF maps in the Overview. But we are planning to eventually. For the time being, curators can influence which map is shown in the overview through rating the map thumbnails in the Maps tab. The map with the highest rating will be shown in the Overview.
