    @Jennifer Hammock: Yes, certifying certain Flickr contributors as "pre-trusted" is a great idea. That would save huge amounts of time. Since I became a curator, for instance, I've spent quite a bit of time finding my images on EOL and trusting them. It is very tedious, especially since the delay in harvesting can be long. Certainly there should be some process to approve certain reliable contributors in this fashion. I agree that the benefit would outweigh the occasional error. (And, as others have mentioned, there are some errors anyway in already pre-trusted images from institutions--inevitable in a project of this scope.)

    @Jason Sharp: I think flickr images should be pre-trusting to EOL. Some errors are normal... Some curators take years to curate a few images!

    @Jennifer Hammock: I know a few photographers that seem to know their stuff and continue to contribute images. I believe the time saved by 'pre-trusting' their images would outweigh the time spent fixing the occasional mistakes. It seems some of the Smithsonian photos are pre-trusted and they have some errors.

    Hey, all! Michael just raised an interesting Trustedness question and our developers would like your feedback. Those of you who curate lots of our flickr images: are there flickr photographers whose content you always trust? Would it be useful to flag these individuals so their flickr content comes in Trusted by default? If you would use this feature, if you think this would save you 5000 trusting actions on the first day, or if you have concerns about the idea, please let us know. Thanks!

    @George Sims: Ah, that's a collection created by a user. You can click on the "Managers" tab to see who created it -- might have been a student. You can leave a message for her in the newsfeed of the collection if you want. Maybe suggest she change the title? She didn't put a description of her collection so unclear why she collected them together.

    Although I am not a curator for the "Insect" community, I noticed that it contained the collection Theraphosidae (tarantulas), which are, of course, NOT insects.

    I would appreciate if we have any crab experts that they take a look at this media gallery -- the best photos are all unreviewed and I'm not able to tell if they are all correctly identified: http://eol.org/pages/343925/media

    @Michael Wunderli: Michael, are the collections you're trying to eject contained within another community managed collection?

    @Michael Wunderli: On the Managers tab for the collection, under 'Communities that can manage this collection' you should see the community that you are seeking. Select 'Remove'.

    @Cyndy Parr:

    I've updated http://yanwong.me/MapImageTest.pdf with 225 new (green) data points pick haphazardly from monocots, composites, and pinophyta. The few green dots among the cloud of magentas are (I think) line drawings of plants. You can't see in this plot, but the png dimension completely separates out these plant line drawings from the maps, so yes - it seems to work almost better for plants. Dunno about microscopy images, though.

    Cyndy, I'll sort out a data file for you, so you can have a look in 3D yourself, if you like. Do you have an email address or whatever to which I can send the file? It won't be that big.
