    @Bruno Petriccione: I could find only one picture from you on iNaturalist: http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/377160 This image is research grade, and it is properly licensed, so it should be exported to EOL. I checked the iNaturalist export file, and it's currently in there, so the image should show up on EOL with our next inaturalist harvest. We harvest iNaturalist weekly, and it must have missed the last harvest.

    I also checked on your Flickr images. We won't be able to import them as long as they are "All Right Reserved." If you change your licenses, they will get imported to EOL. Instructions are here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/encyclopedia_of_life/discuss/72157607325951917/

    @Sarah Gregg: Hi Sarah, it's great to have you active on the site. Your photos are wonderful. All of the features you request here are already on our list of things to do, but none of them have been scheduled for implementation yet. As you can imagine, our list is pretty long. For the time being, you'll unfortunately have to trust your own images on EOL and manually add each image to your watchlist.

    Last week I posted some pics through iNaturalist, but until now they are not yet aviable in EOL. Is there any working problem with the conncection iNatuaralist-EOL? Today I have tried again through Flickr. Could you give me any clarification on this important topic, as pics are a keystone of taxa description?

    As this is my first post here, first of all, hello to everyone. I'm British, but have been living in Italy for more than twenty years, so I hope I’ll be able to contribute to boosting the Italian content here on EoL. Although I earn my living in quite another way, I’ve been working, photographing and studying nature practically since birth (my father was a botanist), so I’ve accumulated a fair bit of knowledge on the way. And where my knowledge fails (which obviously it often does), I have learnt where to turn to for ID advice. As I’m in the process of tagging and uploading a large number of images from my archives, I’ve just read with interest the exchange of views on contributing photos through Flickr. Just a thought , would it be technically possible to introduce a new machine tag that a trusted contributor could set to indicate whether or not he/she considered a particular photo as trusted or unreviewed? Another question: I had already discovered that entering my name in the search box produced a list of my photos. But is there any way that I can keep track of these photos, perhaps through a collection, a watch list, or in some other way, so that I can keep up-to-date with any activity performed on that photo, such as a change of status, ID confirmation, new attribution, etc.? Thanks for any help and advice and I hope I’ll be able to make myself more and more useful as I learn my way around.

    Curators of all levels: Did you know that you can re-crop the thumbnail images that show up on the EOL home page or in collections? Click through to the image page and you'll see you can draw a new square on the image to change the crop. See http://eol.org/info/curation#crop. Thanks for all the work you do to keep EOL looking good!

    Hello Joanna! Thanks for the info - I found even Benedict in 1888 had collected the type specimen from Galapagos...but strangely enough it hasn't been put on the Darwin FOundation datazone yet! But I would be tickled pink if you could send me the article mentioned to my email. I'm wondering how I can send it to you such that it will not be posted?

    @Cindy Manning: Hi Cynthia, Munida hispida definitely occurs at the Galapagos Islands – it was first discovered from there, specifically, off Chatham Island, between Santa Cruz and San Cristobal islands. Since then, it has been found off California and Mexico, south to Peru. A useful reference is: Hendrickx, M. E. (2000) The genus Munida Leach (Crustacea, Decapoda, Galatheidae) in the eastern tropical Pacific, with description of two new species. Bulletin de l'Institut Royal des Sciences Naturelles de Belgique, 70, 163–192. I can email you a pdf if you want it (please send me your email!). Jo Taylor

    Hello Joanne, I work in the Galapagos Islands on board the National Geographic/Lindblad Expeditions vessel (tourism) and operate an ROV and found what seems to be LOTS of Munida hispida on the sea floor at 294 feet off Bartholomew and guy Fawkes islands. I have been searching for recent literature to confirm their presence in the islands (I believe McCosker et al. in 1995 collected specimens. Would you know where I could find this publication or other? Cynthia M. Manning

    @rick mcneill: Not yet. It's on our list of things to do, but it's not trivial. We'll need to implement an ontology of geographical names and a way to mine available sources for geographical information.

    Hey curators! If you have ever wanted to find or count all the contributions you've made to EOL via Flickr or other sources it is now a lot easier. You can type a person's name into the search box and if the person is in the attributions for an object it will be in the search result.
