    Bob Corrigan commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Michael and Kate - I'm reluctant to make blanket statements, but I can safely say that you and other curators should always exercise your best judgment when choosing photos. Where a choice exists, I would invite you to choose a photo that embraces both scientific accuracy and aesthetic quality. Per Michael's comment in para3, this is information we would very much like to see associated with taxon pages - let's talk about the best way to do that. ***As always, thanks for everything you do for EOL***

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Michael and Yan - we're on the case. Thanks for the very comprehensive description of the problem. We take curation issues very seriously, and will look to come up with a useful approach to addressing this problem. Thanks - bob

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Susan Richardson":

    Susan, we've noted your recent curatorial comments regarding mis-classifications in Foraminifera. One of our staff is taking a look at it, perhaps it is something we can resolve with our harvest or some other means. Thanks.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Yan Wong: Not to my knowledge - the licenses on the photos is good (CC BY) but the naming is spotty. There is no name on the purple anemone, but there is one for the Redeye Gaper (https://www.flickr.com/photos/noaaphotolib/14526200623/). Jen and Katja will have more to say on this. Now, if we could get someone at NOAA to add names...

    Bob Corrigan commented on "data about Agropyron cristatum (L.) Gaertn.":

    Why is source text "sagebrush" being interpreted as "woodland"?

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Kate Markham":

    Katherine, thank you for your comments regarding TraitBank data sourced from PanTHERIA. In the interest of providing better information, do you have a citation you could point us to for the correct trait here? Thanks, bob

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Popillia japonica Newman, 1838":

    @Steven Severinghaus: Hi Steven, both are acceptable, but since you requested it I changed the common name that displays on the taxon page to "Japanese Beetle". FWIW that's the name I use.

    Bob Corrigan commented on an older version of Stinkhorn Fungus (Colus hirudinosus):

    Valter, I'm curious why you issued the DCMA takedown notice to the EOL Blog for its use of this image - the post there was celebrating your win of our Flickr context #70 (see https://www.flickr.com/groups/encyclopedia_of_life/discuss/72157628696022841/). Please feel free to contact me so we can discuss. Thanks.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Asclepias subverticillata (A. Gray) Vail":

    @jodisweere: That's great news - I recommend you use the tools at iNaturalist.org, and EOL partner, to report your observation, related metadata, and share a photo. If it is evaluated as a "research grade" observation it will be shared with GBIF - which means it will be shared with EOL.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "data about Pandea rubra Bigelow, 1913":

    Also "ocean" and "sea" seem odd to be listed together. Are they different?

    Not sure "biome" counts as a habitat.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Scratchpads Community":

    @John P. Sullivan: John, thanks for your note. The bottom line is that EOL in 2010 had been pulled in too many directions, and needed to focus on its core mission - with the emergence of the Scratchpad project, we saw an opportunity to work with a team whose primary mission was creating a workbench product - which would allow them to focus on fundraising and sustainability challenges for their interests as we did the same for ours. I will forward your comments to the Scratchpads team, who are always attentive to feedback on how they can improve their product. We continue to maintain Lifedesk online, and will be working to provide migration tools. You can always export the data from a Lifedesk to your machine for archival purposes. Bob
