    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!

    @Corvi Zeman: Just saw the conversation about Dipus halli and Dipus sagitta. Best thing might be to add a brief article for D. sagitta with the subject "Taxonomy" that indicates that Sowerby, Wilson & Reeder, and other sources (cite them) list D. halli as a synonym. That might help the searching. Meanwhile, I'll send a notice to ITIS because we get Wilson & Reeder from them and they should have the synonym but don't appear to.

    @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.

    Hey folks -- new feature! You can type a person's name into the search box and get results where that person gets attribution for a multimedia or text object. Finally you can find all of your own stuff!

    @Katja Schulz: Thank you, I will add шилийн савгадай to Dipus sagitta. There's no way to add "Dipus halli" or send people to Dipus sagitta if they search for Dipus halli, correct?

    @Corvi Zeman: Thanks for adding all those Mongolian names. This is really valuable. Wilson & Reeder, the standard reference for mammals, have only one species, Dipus sagitta, for this genus. They list D. halli as a synonym.

    Corvi Zeman commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    Please excuse me if this is the wrong place for this question. I have been adding Mongolian-language common names to EOL species. A Mongolian-language source gives the scientific name of шилийн савгадай ("rock-crest jerboa") as Dipus halli (source: Sowerby 1920). Dipus halli does not seem to be in EOL. I found a "Dipus sagitta halli" in some other online sources, but it is also not listed in EOL. Am I overlooking something?

    @Yan Wong: The Wikimedia import sometimes fails in mysterious ways. It could be that {{PD-self}} is not on our license whitelist. I'll file a ticket to check for this.

    I can't quite see why this image: from the commons gallery http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Trichechus_inunguis isn't being harvested (the other two pictures in the gallery have been). It seems to be tagged with {{PD-self}}, which should be enough, I would have thought

    @Cyndy Parr: Thanks. I've had a look at the codebase on github - I guess I could probably figure out a patch, but best left to people who really know how the system works (seems like Patrick Leary from looking at the code :). Shout if you want me to have a go.

    @Yan Wong: Thanks for explaining that the rotation is saved in the EXIF metadata. As Katja says, we'll put in the request. I'm a bit more hopeful -- this doesn't seem like it would be too hard to address.

    @Katja Schulz: Yes, of course. I can see this is quite low priority. Lots of other important stuff to do. Good luck!

    @Yan Wong: Thanks for the suggestion. I'll add it to our list of feature request, but I wouldn't hold out much hope for this to get addressed anytime soon. There are too many more urgent requests in the pipeline.
