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

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

    Other than the "View article source" link, there's nothing here that indicates where this text comes from. Someone has given you author credit for it, Bob, when they cited the EOL page. You could construct a citation that clarifies that EPA is the responsible party, and put it in the Citation field for the data object. For example: Aspergillus niger Final Risk Assessment. (2012, September 27). Retrieved October 21, 2014, from http://epa.gov/biotech_rule/pubs/fra/fra006.htm

    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

    @Deniz Martinez: I think it would be better to downrate them with one star which will put them towards the end of media collections. These photos may still be useful for some purposes, so we probably would not want to remove them from public view entirely.

    I have a question...if there are enough good quality photos of a species alive and well, is it ok to hide photos of them as roadkill? :/ Thanks, Deniz

    Theodore Ganea commented on "Megaloptera Overview":

    There is one other problem. I think that your article is a little random, as if you decided to take all the facts and throw them randomly into the article. I suggest you organize your article in paragraphs, each paragraph talking about something separate.

    Theodore Ganea commented on "Megaloptera Overview":

    This article is very informative and well-written. However, there are a few problems with the article. Firstly, Wikipedia is not a valid reference. Although I personally agree that Wikipedia should be considered a valid reference, the overwhelming majority of the scientific community disagrees with my point of view. I am sure, however, that there are plenty of good, valid, and informative references in the Wikipedia article itself.

    @Yan Wong: That's really strange. I have added the common name "herrings" to the Clupea page. That should put this page at the top of the search results list. I have also added a redirect that sends people directly to this page, so they don't have to deal with all the species described by various Herrings.

    @Andrew Brower: Hi Andy, have you tried the curator worklist? Look for the Worklist tab on any EOL taxon page. There are a bunch of content filters available at the top of the page to customize the things you see in the list.

    Andrew Brower commented on "EOL Curators":

    Hi all, Is there any way to bulk-curate multiple images of the same thing? I am looking at an entire page of photos of monarch butterfly overwintering colonies. It is obvious from the thumbnails that that's what they are, and it is very time-consuming to open and trust each of them individually. AB

    Not sure what can be done about this, but I imagine a search for "herring" should give Atlantic Herring somewhere high up? http://eol.org/search?q=herring&search=Go

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Thanks Michael, this should be fixed now. The problem was due to the fact that Cornutia pyramidata has a bunch of synonyms in the genus Hosta Jacq.: http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/record/kew-47586

    Cornutia (Lamiaceae) images are also appearing incorrectly on the Hosta (Asparagaceae) page. Can they be disassociated, please?

    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.
