    @Michаel Frаnkis: Michael, we'll keep these suggestions in mind if we get a chance to change the software to accommodate taxon-based or geographic-based variants of labels for data. As you know, developer time is always precious so we have to juggle priorities. Thanks for your input.

    @Cyndy Parr: Thanks! Another taxon-specific one needed is to change 'litters' to 'broods' for Aves. Maybe for some Mammalia too, I'd not think of a baby Elephas maximus as 'litter'!
    On spelling variants, I think this is better done by taxon, depending on the region they are from, so just as 'colour' is correct for old world taxa, so is 'color' for new world taxa.
    I'll take a look at promoting / removing items; I couldn't work out how to do it before.

    Cyndy Parr commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Michael -- Curators should use the hide link to hide data records that are incorrect (comment explaining will be helpful; the record will be grayed out for curators but not visible to non-curators).

    You can also promote or remove items from the overview tab (for example, if something occurs in a habitat only rarely, that habitat is not a good one for the overview). Also we've already started to think about the need to re-label terms to be more taxon specific -- we'll certainly be looking for input about the best way to do this. As for spelling variants within English, for that we'd have to allow users to set a preference for one or the other.

    Michаel Frаnkis commented on "EOL Curators":

    "EOL has data for ... traits" Is this new feature editable for curators? There are times where the grouping terms are not appropriate for the taxon concerned, such as 'flower' and 'fruit' for Gymnosperms (should be 'strobili' or 'cones'), or 'color' for European, Australian, etc. taxa (should be 'colour'), and other cases where the datum given is incorrect (e.g. for Pinus albicaulis cones, 'brown' should be 'purple') or is missing and could be added.

    This photo is a Callifornia ground squirrel (Spermophilus beechyi), not a Western gray squirrel. It should either be deleted or moved

    Hi, Rob! Based on your credentials and history with us I have promoted you to full curator. You should be able to find all your videos with this query. You can select Trusted status from the menu on the right. This is how most of our credentialed media contributors do it. Let me know if you have any trouble :)

    Rob Mutch commented on Rob Mutch's newsfeed:

    Hello. How can I get my videos reviewed and marked as "Trusted"? They are high-quality content and in the Unreviewed status are below poorer-quality content (in the thumbnail media tab page) and aren't going to be viewed as much, which is one of my motives for sharing the videos with EOL. If I can get this done I have many photos I would like to share, as well. Thanks a lot. :o)

    Yan Wong commented on "EOL Curators":

    Update: I've just made available a facility for searching EoL for media of a specific type, at http://yanwong.me/EOLimagesearch.cgi. Using it to look for public domain images of beetles throws up a number of cases of bad classification, of which the two I mentioned are just a selection. Have a look at http://yanwong.me/EOLimagesearch.cgi?search=beetles&numberofitems=75&mediatype=images&licence=pd

    Yan Wong commented on "EOL Curators":

    @René Malenfant: Thanks René. I notice that even if the preferred classification is changed, the picture still shows up when, e.g. searching the pages API for beetles (the guitar fish picture, ID 19675473 is about halfway down the results returned from http://eol.org/api/pages/1.0/345.xml?images=75&videos=0&sounds=0&maps=0&text=0&iucn=false&subjects=&licenses=pd . Is there a way of marking the classification as untrusted? Or telling the pages API to only use the preferred classification?
