    @Kelly O'Donnell: Thanks for checking, Kelly. It certainly should work that way. I just tried it and I had to do it twice before it stuck- I think maybe the first time it got hung up in my Facebook login. Could you do me a favor and see if you score on the second try?

    Hey all! I have a question about this Facebook Like button. I liked a video of mine thinking it would get shared with my Facebook network. The like worked (the EOL page says 1 person liked it), but I didn't see it on my FB account. Is that not the way this works?

    @Bob Corrigan - Entomologists, at least, tend to specialize at the family level, and catalogs are most frequently issued at that level, although some smaller Orders may also be cataloged at once.

    @Michael Wunderli: We do not yet import content from the German Wikipedia. Harvesting Wikipedia in multiple languages is on our list of things to do, but we don't have an estimate yet when this task can be tackled. For the time being, you'd have to copy and past the content into EOL manually. For more information, see Reusing Wikipedia content.

    @Michael Caterino: Michael, what would be the highest "level" (e.g., order, family, genus) would you want to set a preferred classification and see it propagate "down" from? I'd like to calibrate the requirement a little better.

    @Michael Caterino: At the moment, there's no inheritance of the preferred classification for subordinate taxa, but it's on our list of things to implement in the future. As you noted, this will not be a trivial thing.

    @Michаel Frаnkis: It looks like we imported the thumbnail for the Budgerigar video, but not the video itself. We'll have to figure out how to play the ogg files on EOL. At the moment, we cannot import video files from Wikimedia Commons, but hopefully that will change soon.

    Michael Caterino commented on "EOL Curators":

    I've been able to set the preferred classification (ITIS) for the family I curate, but I see now that that preference is pinned only to the 'Histeridae' page. Is there any option to enforce that classification for all subordinate taxa? I see the dangers here, if you happen to curate 'Animalia' or something like that, but for lower level taxa it would be nice to be able to do this once, not for every included taxon. Thanks, Mike

    Have you guys looked at the Research Wishes collection http://eol.org/collections/34377 and voted on which ones look most promising for future work? We could use your expert opinions.

    @Cyndy Parr: There have certainly been videos from Commons here in the past, I remember curating some, such as this one: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Budgerigar_carpet95.ogg - actually, its eol page is still here but not visible on the media page: http://eol.org/data_objects/5881928

    @Michael Wunderli: Here is our page explaining what our harvester is SUPPOSED to be be looking for http://eol.org/info/curate_wiki. I checked our Wikimedia Commons collection at http://eol.org/collections/210 and there are no videos at all, so we must not be harvesting any.

    @Michael Wunderli: Both are on their relevant species pages at wiki Commons, so they should be here.

    Found the second one (Lacerta viridis): http://eol.org/data_objects/13514894

    The video isn't here; not sure why, but there have long been odd quirks with Commons harvesting, with some images not appearing. Some cases may be due to less frequently used CC license formatting such as CC-0, but that shouldn't apply here.
