    @Ian Tait: Ian, Entomophagy is a fantastic idea for a new collection. I suspect Katja would be interested also: http://eol.org/users/35200 . She's renowned for her insect recipes. Do you want to share your photos via Flickr or iNaturalist (http://eol.org/info/contribute#Third)?

    Ian Tait commented on "Eating biodiversity":

    Hi there, I'm a bit of a newbie here and at the moment my main focus is to set up a collection of mangrove species in the PhangNga region of Thailand. But over the last few years I have collected photos and information on edible insects (entomophagy) here in SE Asia which seems to fit well into your community. I will set up the collection in the near future if you are interested.

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Michael, we'll keep these suggestions in mind if we get a chance to change the software to accommodate taxon-based or geographic-based variants of labels for data. As you know, developer time is always precious so we have to juggle priorities. Thanks for your input.

    Michаel Frаnkis commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Cyndy Parr: Thanks! Another taxon-specific one needed is to change 'litters' to 'broods' for Aves. Maybe for some Mammalia too, I'd not think of a baby Elephas maximus as 'litter'!
    On spelling variants, I think this is better done by taxon, depending on the region they are from, so just as 'colour' is correct for old world taxa, so is 'color' for new world taxa.
    I'll take a look at promoting / removing items; I couldn't work out how to do it before.

    Cyndy Parr commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Michael -- Curators should use the hide link to hide data records that are incorrect (comment explaining will be helpful; the record will be grayed out for curators but not visible to non-curators).

    You can also promote or remove items from the overview tab (for example, if something occurs in a habitat only rarely, that habitat is not a good one for the overview). Also we've already started to think about the need to re-label terms to be more taxon specific -- we'll certainly be looking for input about the best way to do this. As for spelling variants within English, for that we'd have to allow users to set a preference for one or the other.

    Michаel Frаnkis commented on "EOL Curators":

    "EOL has data for ... traits" Is this new feature editable for curators? There are times where the grouping terms are not appropriate for the taxon concerned, such as 'flower' and 'fruit' for Gymnosperms (should be 'strobili' or 'cones'), or 'color' for European, Australian, etc. taxa (should be 'colour'), and other cases where the datum given is incorrect (e.g. for Pinus albicaulis cones, 'brown' should be 'purple') or is missing and could be added.
