    Kleber Baita added text to "Filo Rotifera" on "Rotifera".

    Rotifera or rotifers (Latin rota, wheel + beast, those who have)...

    @Maggie Whitson: If you contact the photographers and invite them to change the licenses to one of those that EOL accepts, they could let CalPhotos know and then the photos can come over in the weekly update. But it might be a long shot.

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Maggie Whitson: Sorry Maggie, the text on the Info for Curators page was misleading. I have updated it to clarify things. We are suggesting that curators who want to share THEIR OWN images can use CalPhotos to do so. Unfortunately, curators cannot add images from CalPhotos to EOL. We are already getting all the CalPhotos images they can share. If you find an image on CalPhotos that is not on EOL, it's because the license of the image is not compatible with the EOL licensing policy. If you would like to find new images that can be added to EOL, the best platform to look is Flickr. The site has an Advanced Search with an optional license filter. EOL can accept Creative Commons licensed content that can be modified, adapted, or built upon. If you find suitable images on Flickr, check out the Encyclopedia of Life Images Group. On this page you will find sample invitation messages that curators can use to recruit new images to the group pool.

    @Richard Glor: Aloha Richard I use the tabbing function of my browser and open each image in a separate tab, so the original page is also still open. Then I just go from tab to tab, saving each image as trusted. The you reload the original page.

    Michаel Frаnkis commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Maggie Whitson: Not sure you can with CalPhotos - it's not like Flickr where you can invite any suitably licensed image, the CalPhotos contributors have to have indicated that they are willing to license their images, and then once licensed, they are automatically harvested.

    Dare I say it too, a lot of the CalPhotos are not terribly good, they're all small (barely more than thumbnail size), and many are poor quality scans from slides.

    Richard Glor commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Patrick Coin: The worklist is a nice convenience, but a bulk trust option would still be a very desirable addition. I just went through and trusted a dozen or so images and it took far longer than it should have, especially given the lag in saving changes and flipping among images.

    Maggie Whitson commented on "EOL Curators":

    I am a new curator. I have found images over CalPhotos that I'd like to add to EOL. The Info for Curators page says to browse CalPhotos to find images to add, but doesn't say how to add them once you've found them. Can anyone direct me to a FAQ or another help page that explains in detail how to do this? Thanks.

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    We just discussed this issue with our developers and came up with the following potential solution: The 'set as exemplar' tool will still show as a pop-up layer when you mouse over a thumbnail in the media collection. However, rather than showing ON the thumbnail, it will be BELOW the thumbnail, temporarily obscuring the rating stars. In order to set an exemplar, you would then have to move your cursor down a bit and click on the layer below the thumbnail. This would prevent accidental exemplar settings when you click anywhere in the thumbnail itself. We'll try to get a mockup of this, so you can see what it would look like. As soon as it's ready, we'll post a link to it here, so you can provide feedback.

    @Christian D. Jersabek: Yep, that's what I do too, but there's no way of removing the accidental selection from the page history

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

    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?

    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?
