    @Alexa DiNicola: Thanks, pay special attention to the Flickr and the Wikimedia Commons images and where appropriate give high ratings or set examplars. Many of them are better than the images we have from other sources.

    @Cyndy Parr: I can review some of those, especially the western-USA species. I'll get to it shortly.

    @Bharat Kumar: Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) is here http://eol.org/pages/584643/ . There is a fair amount of information on the Nepenthes page for pitcher plants: http://eol.org/pages/60885/. A collection of insectivorous plants is a great idea!

    Do we have any curators qualified to trust or untrust images of lilies? There are some very good unreviewed photos here but I can't be sure of the identifications http://eol.org/pages/45417/worklist

    @Peggy Eppig: Hi Peggy, thanks for leaving me the message. I've asked the head of our content group, Dr. Cyndy Parr, to open a dialog with you about becoming a curator. But I'd also like to learn more about your work - any chance we could set up a phone call some time in the new year?

    Hi Bob, I'm starting my PhD research with a life history of Bombus terricola that you currently curate. I am very interested in the open access capability of EOL as both a researcher and potential contributor for this rapdily declining species. How can I get more involved with EOL? I am also a contributor to Discover Life. Bee well! Peggy

    @Paul Bedell: You can tweak this yourself. As a curator, you can click on the Names tab and select show all classifications. Then select the classification with the name you wish to display at the top of the page.

    On EOL when I go to Xylophagus cinctus, it takes me to X. abdominalis. But on ITIS, X. abdominalis is invalid, and should be synomyized with cinctus. http://www.itis.gov/servlet/SingleRpt/SingleRpt?search_topic=TSN&search_value=130114

    @Bart C.: Great ideas, Bart! It is already possible for EOL users to add the identification resources manually, page by page, using "Add an article." It would also be possible to add them more in batches using the spreadsheet upload method (http://eol.org/info/337). Of course, if a volunteer programmer is willing we would welcome a more automated solution! Perhaps this community would like to tackle the project using one or more of these methods?

    Bart C. commented on "Identification Resources Group":

    I think the ‘Online Identification Guides’ collection is a nice idea, but I don't see much movement anymore. Are there no more resources? I doubt it. Maybe a list of links is a bit old fashion. I think EOL could do better. I don’t see much of these urls added to the Identification Resources subchapters. What do you think about the idea of an online, global, croudsourced, searchable database of identification resources? It can feed EOL authomatically with data for the ‘Identification subchapter’ of the relevant taxonomic range (and maybe visa versa). It should be searchable on at least geographic range (countries, bioregions, continents), taxonomic level and language(s). Both online resources (interactive keys, checklists, photo library, forums, e-guides, etc) as well as references to physical books and articles (online available or not). URL’s can be added and reviewed by users. I am not a web designer, so who wants to steal my idea?
