    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!

    @Jennifer Hammock: Hmm...it's still not there. I'm going to take away some of the tags and see what happens. Thanks!

    @abdul qayyum: I see that you have been adding Urdu common names, so it seems you discovered Urdu on the common names language pull-down list. You should also find it on the "add an article" language list from the Detail tab. Thanks for contributing!

    @Michael Wunderli: I my limited experience, this underscores the vast project that EOL has undertaken. Right now if I look at a dragonfly species, there is no way that I see to carefully separate male from female images, and there should be larval images separate as well. They are all just lumped in one photostream, often without indication of sex. With plants, maybe flower, leaf, bark, seed, etc. And subspecies is another issue (and there are dragonfly subspecies as well)

    Michael Wunderli commented on "EOL Curators":

    hallo i am creating this collections of all plants the gardeners in switzerland have to learn during their education and I found a lot of plants names that are a little special. A few examples: Rhododendron Cultivars Knaphill-Exbury Grp. - Rosa sericea f. pteracantha - Salix x sepulcralis 'Chrysocoma' - Symphoricarpos x chenaultii 'Hancock' - Nepeta Cultivars Faassenii-Grp. - i know that the x in some names stands for some kind of grossing over, but I don't realy understand how variety names within one species are handled. And i don't know how eol handles subspecies, or even if a breeded plant could be a subspecies at all. I know i have a lot of questions, but i am happy about all kind of ideas and inputs about this topic! thank you michael

    @Kelly O'Donnell: Kelly, it's supposed to be okay to have multiple names at the same rank (don't add any higher ranks!) but check afterwards, and if you run into trouble, you can remove one of the names on flickr and associate the video with the missing taxon manually on eol with the "add association" button.

    Hi all. I have a video of a monarch caterpillar feeding on Asclepias tuberosa. I'm uploading it through Flickr and I have a question. I'd like the video to appear on both species pages. Will it confuse the EOL harvester if there are multiple machine tags for the same taxonomic rank?

    @Michаel Frаnkis: You can leave it hidden. I'll re-upload a rotated version of this image through the Rapid Response LIfeDesk. It should show up on the page in a few days.

    Actually the original on Flickr is not upright (which is why it isn't on EOL either) - go to the flickr page, right-click on the pic, and select 'Original'.

    Given that it's the only image for the genus, a mis-rotated image is better than no image at all, I'd mark it as visible. If people need a copy of the image under its creative commons license, they can easily rotate it 90° after downloading.

    @Annette Olson: Unfortunately, there's no way to do this right now. People can rotate their images on Flickr, but we get the original, unedited version of the image through the API, so the manual rotation on Flickr does not affect the images we get.

    Annette Olson commented on "EOL Curators":

    Is there a way to rotate an incoming image within EOL itself? There is an vertical image in Flickr (correctly oriented), that in my worklist is turned 90 degrees. I have 'trusted' but 'hidden' the image, and it remained incorrectly oriented. (See "Galidictis", for which there is only 1 media listed.) Just wondering if this is a random aberration, or if this has happened before and there's a way to correct it.

    @Paul Bedell: Thanks Paul. Torsten Dikow is planning to look at the EOL Asilidae as soon as he gets settled in his new postdoc here at the Smithsonian. Hopefully he can help with some of the Australian species.

    Katja, We need a curator for Australian Asilidae. There are many uncurated photos, but we need someone who is familiar with the many species they have there.

    Picking up on the discussion about the trigger-happiness of the set as exemplar tool, we now have mockups for a couple of possible solutions. Please see Possible Improvements to the Set as Exemplar Tool and let us know what you think.
