    @Yan Wong: Yeah, we've mentioned that to the partner before, but just to keep our own house clean, I did a search for those and hid those I found, about 30. Please go ahead and hide or untrust any others you see. Leave a comment about the license. Cases like this are thankfully rare.

    Worryingly, this image: http://eol.org/data_objects/19886579, although very clearly marked as copyrighted etc. has found its way via EOL China Regional Center into EOL marked as CC-BY-NC-SA. It took me only a few seconds to verify that it is not distributable in this way (http://www.arkive.org/greater-mouse-eared-bat/myotis-myotis/image-A14235.html). Can someone have a word with whoever is putting these up?

    @Katja Schulz:

    Yep, keeping (but unpublished) seems reasonable to me too. I wonder if we should remove them from the collection to ID, though, as we can't curate unpublished images anyway!

    On the same topic, I suspect that there may be wikimedia photos which become unpublished because they are shuffled down into a more specific category (e.g. xxx in Kruger National Park) which has no explicit taxonomic information. We can get these back by adding the correct taxonomic info on commons (e.g. see what MPF and I have done at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Milvus_milvus_in_flight), but there isn't currently a way to keep track of when this might be needed. Just something to ponder over.

    @Jennifer Hammock: Yes, we should really keep these pics published on EOL even if the license changes at the source. It's perfectly legal, and supported by most contributors I have talked to. But we've never gotten around to changing the code for this. Jen, I think you had some concerns about keeping images that disappear from partner resources.

    @Yan Wong: Yeah, Katja is familiar with the relicensed flickr photos issue, and I believe it's complicated. A tweak to the flickr harvest might help, if I remember the preferences of the flickr community correctly...

    @Michаel Frаnkis: I was going to leave a couple as they are, just so the EoL team can debug what is going on.

    @Michаel Frаnkis: This is done now. Best to report these kind of things on the Taxon Clean-Up To Do List. You can add the taxa to the collection or just leave a comment in the newsfeed.

    @Yan Wong: Agree the one Cyndy set as exemplar is the best I could find too - I was just about to re-set it as exemplar, but it vanished from the listings after I star-rated it!
    Maybe because it is currently marked as "The association to Melanerpes erythrocephalus cannot be curated because it is being previewed after a harvest"??

    @Bob Corrigan: In case you need another example of losing exemplar records, http://eol.org/data_objects/22387484 is the current exemplar although according to that page it has never been chosen as one. Cyndy instead set http://eol.org/data_objects/24933353 as the exemplar for that species 8 months ago.

    Duplicate:
    http://eol.org/pages/5120209/overview (erroneous name)
    http://eol.org/pages/819830/overview (correct name)

    Could they be merged please! (so long since I found a page to merge, I've forgotten how to report them properly!!)

    Yan Wong commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Jennifer Hammock: Thanks. A number of them are now unpublished, because they are no longer under a CC license (e.g. http://eol.org/data_objects/13466855, http://eol.org/data_objects/14269275). I guess I should remove these from the collection. Or perhaps someone should post on the flickr stream to ask the author if they really intended to change the license.

    @Jennifer Hammock: I'd like to be able to add stuff there, if that's OK. I'll try to stick to cases where there are no decent trusted images to use as exemplars.

    Jennifer Hammock commented on "EOL Curators":

    How silly of me! We already have a collection of high priority images in need of review. The scope previously was a bit narrow, but I think it's time we broadened it so everyone can play. Curators, if you have a moment, please have a look! There are some beautiful images in there already that could use your attention. Lots of insects, plants and marine invertebrates, also a couple of fish and a few tetrapods. Please comment here or in the collection newsfeed if you'd like access to throw images in there for your colleagues to review.

    @Jennifer Hammock: As someone more official at EoL, do you want to set up a collection of "Great exemplar images that need trusting", and I'll add any I find to it?

    @Yan Wong: I've noticed similar mixed ordering on several pages with some Trusted below some Unreviewed, though never with Unreviewed right at the top like this
