    @Benjamin J. Crain: Sorry Benjamin, we've been having trouble with the Flickr import for a while. We are planning a one-time harvest soon just to get caught up on all the images we've been missing over the last few months, but I don't know when regular harvests will resume. Are your students taking pictures of wild organisms in the field or are these museum specimens?

    H Katja, a quick question. There is a minor error (comma misplaced in a number) in one of the articles provided by one of my former student about 2 years ago (Scorpiones by Cassandra Owen). I tried to correct the error but that article was uploaded (by me) using edulifedesks, which is no longer used by EOL. So, I no longer have access to this article. How could I (or someone else) fix this issue? Thanks.

    @Yan Wong: We're planning on redoing the NatureServe connector to move some of their stuff to TraitBank. At that point, we can also address the common names issue. When there are no other common names, their very general names can sometimes be useful, so I'm not sure we should toss them all.

    @Michаel Frаnkis: This usually happens while a harvest is in the process of getting published. It should go away after the data set is fully published, but sometimes the publication process may get stuck, and the message persists until the next harvest gets published. Are these all Wikimedia Commons images?

    @Katja Schulz: At some point Yan Wong wrote code that could fix this problem, at least for some images. Katja, see DATA-989. Maybe it has broken or needs to be run again. Or they need to be added to this collection first: http://eol.org/collections/27159/ (I can make Katja and Benjamin manager rights to this collection).

    Katja Schulz commented on Katja Schulz's newsfeed:

    @Benjamin J. Crain: You must have rotated these on Flickr after uploading them or allowed Flickr to auto-rotate them. This means that the original file is still sideways when you download it. Check it out: https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8369/8469148788_c614cf8c44_o_d.jpg Unfortunately, we don't have the tools to fix this on our end, so the only thing you can do is to upload a fresh copy of the image that is oriented correctly as a new image. Note that replacing the original of the old image will not work. Once an image has been harvested from Flickr, EOL updates image data when they change, but not the image file itself.

    @Benjamin J. Crain: We can separate Trichosalpinx minutipetala from T. memor. Can you give me the full reference for Fernández & Bogarín 2011?

    Hello Katja, One final question (I hope), the photos for Microchilus plantagineaus are appearing sideways. They are normal on the flickr account. Any way to fix this?

    Benjamin J. Crain commented on "Katja Schulz":

    Hello Katja Thank you for the quick answer. I had no idea about the quotes or the synonym connections! It is strange though, because I have done it that way in the past and it has worked for most of the species. Anyway, I really appreciate your help!!! Cheers, Benjamin

    @Benjamin J. Crain:

    There's a problem with your machine tags. You should use either binomial tags OR species tags, but not both. Your binomial tags are not valid. It looks like you didn't put quotes around them, so the species name got separated from the genus name. If you use binomial tags, you should always enter them like this, with the quotes: "taxonomy:binomial=Galearis rotundifolia"

    Also, you don't need to add machine tags for synonyms. Those are already in our database: http://eol.org/pages/1113312/names/synonyms, http://eol.org/pages/1134345/names/synonyms

    Hello, I also see that there seems to be a problem with the Anacamptis fragrans page, and again, photos with the appropriate tags/groups/copyright don't seem to be showing up. Cheers Benjamin

    Hello, I am not sure if I am contacting the right person, but I am trying to upload a photograph of Galearis rotundifolia to the system and it does not seem to be appearing. I have attached it to the group and there are several tags associated with it (species, genus, binomial, family) and even tags for its synonyms but it does not appear in any of them. Please let me know what I need to do to fix this. Thank you! Benjamin Crain

    @David Illig: Yes, those stripes look pretty orange to me. If you change the machine tags on your Flickr photo, the revised taxon association will be harvested by EOL within a day or two.

    Hello, Ms. Schulz, I am concerned that the caterpillar that I submitted and that was accepted as Anisota peigleri, Peigleri's Oakworm Moth larva, may in fact be Anisota senatoria, Orange-striped Oakworm Moth larva. Thanks! David Illig

    Could you please write an article on Raphidae? The family Raphidae should at least have one or two articles, yet the Raphidae taxon page has no articles at all. I feel that the taxon should have many articles. Please add an article to the Raphidae page.
