    @Michаel Frаnkis: OK thanks. I figured the scientific illustrations were fine (especially BHL ones), but seeing postage stamps and coins is always amusing. :)

    @Deniz Martinez: Yes, mark them as trusted and visible (assuming they are correctly identified!), but you can give them a low rating (one or two stars), so they appear toward the end of the images list.

    I run into a lot of images that are drawings, or even postage stamps...i know that for some rare/extinct species this is all we have, but what is the general protocol for such images when there are plenty of images of live animals? Do I still mark all of them "trusted" and/or "visible"? Thanks.

    @Thomas Horn: Cream Wild Indigo (Longbract Indigo), one of the false/wild indigos, which are part of the pea family. They all have that distinctive pealike flower, most species can be easily distinguished by their flower color (blue, yellow, white, and for these, well, cream). I'm more an a zoology person usually, botany is a secondary interest, so of course I double-checked this flower in my field guides and online to make sure I got it right. ;)

    @Deniz Martinez: :-) So, the flower we are talking about, what species is it supposedly from ? And what are the key features that distinguish it from related species ?

    @Thomas Horn: Ok, I had more time to look up the image review process, and see that is available to full and master curators only...I don't have a worklist tab visible since I am still an assistant curator. (I'm still an undergraduate student, not sure if and when I can apply for full curator just based on my stats here? LOL) But I do know this flower, and those images all look correct to me...

    @Cyndy Parr: How do I change an image from unreviewed to trusted/untrusted? I can only seem to do this with names. All of the still unreviewed images look like the right flower to me, and I set one as an exemplar.

    The best photos we have of this Cream Wild Indigo are not reviewed -- can somebody trust the unreviewed photos and pick one for an exemplar? Thanks. http://eol.org/pages/642836/media

    We have just posted a call for proposals for the NESCent-EOL-BHL Research Sprint. If you want to get funding to travel to NESCent and do some cool research with EOL or BHL, please take a look: http://eol.org/info/nescent_EOL_BHL

    @Sarah Gregg: Looks like our system made a page for each of these but something went wrong with the images themselves. We'll let our developers know they should be reharvested.
