    @Cyndy Parr: Done a little bit. Most of the pics are just thumbnail size from biopix and bioimages so get 3*, but I found 3 located wild origin, very high resolution (print-quality) pics of Ulva lactuca which I've given 5* and set two of them as exemplars.

    All the Ulvaceae pics also appear on the Chlorophyceae page; I'm not familiar enough with the taxonomy of the two groups to know if that needs delinking.

    We could use some rating and trusting and setting of good exemplars in the following two algae families: Chlorophyceae http://eol.org/pages/3923/worklist and Ulvaceae http://eol.org/pages/4051/worklist. Can anybody take a look?

    @Bob Corrigan - Entomologists, at least, tend to specialize at the family level, and catalogs are most frequently issued at that level, although some smaller Orders may also be cataloged at once.

    @Michael Wunderli: We do not yet import content from the German Wikipedia. Harvesting Wikipedia in multiple languages is on our list of things to do, but we don't have an estimate yet when this task can be tackled. For the time being, you'd have to copy and past the content into EOL manually. For more information, see Reusing Wikipedia content.

    @Michael Caterino: Michael, what would be the highest "level" (e.g., order, family, genus) would you want to set a preferred classification and see it propagate "down" from? I'd like to calibrate the requirement a little better.

    i was just curating this page: http://eol.org/pages/5095/overview, and there is no summary in german. the wikipediapage in german for this taxon is very good. can i link this two things somehow?

    @Michael Caterino: At the moment, there's no inheritance of the preferred classification for subordinate taxa, but it's on our list of things to implement in the future. As you noted, this will not be a trivial thing.

    @Michаel Frаnkis: It looks like we imported the thumbnail for the Budgerigar video, but not the video itself. We'll have to figure out how to play the ogg files on EOL. At the moment, we cannot import video files from Wikimedia Commons, but hopefully that will change soon.

    Michael Caterino commented on "EOL Curators":

    I've been able to set the preferred classification (ITIS) for the family I curate, but I see now that that preference is pinned only to the 'Histeridae' page. Is there any option to enforce that classification for all subordinate taxa? I see the dangers here, if you happen to curate 'Animalia' or something like that, but for lower level taxa it would be nice to be able to do this once, not for every included taxon. Thanks, Mike

    @Cyndy Parr: There have certainly been videos from Commons here in the past, I remember curating some, such as this one: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Budgerigar_carpet95.ogg - actually, its eol page is still here but not visible on the media page: http://eol.org/data_objects/5881928

    @Michael Wunderli: Here is our page explaining what our harvester is SUPPOSED to be be looking for http://eol.org/info/curate_wiki. I checked our Wikimedia Commons collection at http://eol.org/collections/210 and there are no videos at all, so we must not be harvesting any.

    @Michael Wunderli: Both are on their relevant species pages at wiki Commons, so they should be here.

    Found the second one (Lacerta viridis): http://eol.org/data_objects/13514894

    The video isn't here; not sure why, but there have long been odd quirks with Commons harvesting, with some images not appearing. Some cases may be due to less frequently used CC license formatting such as CC-0, but that shouldn't apply here.

    i was checking out the german wikipedia page of Zootoca vivipara, bergeidechse, and I found a very nice video: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Zootoca_vivipara.ogv, why is this video not on eol?

    @Michael Wunderli: Hi, Michael! Go into the collection, and open the managers tab. Do you see your community listed there with a "remove" link? This should work as long as you personally are also a manager of the collection.

    Jennifer Hammock commented on "EOL Curators":

    Greetings, EOL curators! Some of you know that we have been soliciting suggestions for big data questions that could be answered (or begin to be answered) using EOL content. We’re calling these Research Wishes and they’re listed in the “I Wish” collection. We’ve got biogeography; we’ve got the evolution of body part regeneration; we’ve got estimation of collected but undescribed species in current museum collections. We need your opinion!

    Please take some time to visit the collection, read some of the questions and tell us how you would prioritize them, using the usual 5 star rating tool. You’re also welcome to comment on the questions, and join the Research Ideas community to follow discussion of all the Research Wishes. New wishes and ratings may be added until 11:59pm GMT on September 28th, when we will record the average ratings and number of raters for each wish. These will help us determine a Research Wishes shortlist. This list will underlie this year’s Rubenstein Program. In October we will solicit proposals from teams of biologists, information scientists, crowdsourcing experts and/or computer scientists to provide tools and strategies to deliver the data needed to grant the shortlisted Research Wishes. Thanks for your help!
