    @George Sims: George, "tarantulas" are INSECTA sensu Linné! Joke!

    Although I am not a curator for the "Insect" community, I noticed that it contained the collection Theraphosidae (tarantulas), which are, of course, NOT insects.

    I would appreciate if we have any crab experts that they take a look at this media gallery -- the best photos are all unreviewed and I'm not able to tell if they are all correctly identified: http://eol.org/pages/343925/media

    @Michael Wunderli: Michael, are the collections you're trying to eject contained within another community managed collection?

    @Michael Wunderli: On the Managers tab for the collection, under 'Communities that can manage this collection' you should see the community that you are seeking. Select 'Remove'.

    @Cyndy Parr: Cyndy, thank you for explanation and search. I will wait, and see what happens once my content gets connected to EOL.

    @Katerina Tvardikova: Google knows about your pages: http://bit.ly/ZPy6XH . I did a search that included your site URL to be sure. It looks like your content shows up on the fourth page of results if you just search for the scientific name. For birds you are competing with lots of very popular sites that have been around a while and automatically have a lot of links to them. When your content flows to EOL that will help raise its profile. The more websites (and more respected websites) who link to your content the better.

    @Cyndy Parr: E.g. if I search for specific species (Philemon buceroides) I do not find the information form my pages at all. There is many species like this. Even when I search New Guinea Birds or Papua New GUinea Birds (which I guess most people do when thinking to fisn something about the birds in coutry), do I do not find my pages easily. I was interesitng in some tips how to improve it.

    @Katerina Tvardikova: Note that Katerina's Scratchpad is here: http://pngbirds.myspecies.info/ I have found some of the content by searching on Google. Katerina what is an example of a page you don't see listed?

    Katerina Tvardikova commented on "Scratchpads Community":

    I feel really bad about my work being lost in web-space. I would need to force Google and other search engines to search on my pages too. Is there any way to do it? I am sure that my pages are the only ones including information about given species, but nobody is able to find out, as the pages are not listed when I search for the species on Google. Is it a general problem, or only mine?

    Hi all, @Constantine Wing Heng Lau @Cyndy Parr I will contact Discover Life but please see the DL page for that record [1] which states "decimal latitude_longitude from gazetteer ••• 41.1_-85.1". DL are automatically (and too optimistically) using a reverse geocoding to provide coordinates based on textual information on the record. The record published through GBIF [2] does not contain coordinates and the GBIF network content does not appear at first glance to be particularly problematic for that species [3]. I hope this helps explain the content you are seeing. Best wishes, Tim - Systems architect, GBIF [1] http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20l?id=GBIF50315052&btxt=Encyclopedia+of+Life&burl=www.eol.org/pages/311781 [2] http://data.gbif.org/occurrences/50312715 [3] http://data.gbif.org/species/2435451/

    @Constantine Wing Heng Lau: Please click through to the map object page (http://eol.org/data_objects/21430628) and leave your comment so that the source and other visitors will know there is a problem. You can untrust and hide the map but again, give an explanation so that the source can fix the problem. This can also be a problem with our GBIF maps which currently are not curatable. We are aware and hope to improve this in the future.

    @Constantine Wing Heng Lau: After a quick look, if I understand correctly, you're right. The maps should represent the natural range of a species; the presence in a zoo cannot be considered as a population. I am a new curator and I still haven't seen as make changes, but I suggest leavingg only the distribution map. I hope I have been helpful. Also I would like to tell you that I'd like to contact you because my working group is writing a manual of good practices on bees. I am writing on pollination service and on the problems of habitat loss, fragmentation etc. Can you give me some advice? Ciao, Claudia
