    @Tanya Higgins: Hi, Tanya! We certainly don't have much of that kind of information- it hasn't been our emphasis so far. I think Captive care info could go comfortably in the Notes chapter. (You can add a subtitle to any text object, to clarify the topic.) Thoughts on this, anyone from the zoo, aquarist or horticultural communities?

    Tanya Higgins commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    Would it be appropriate to add a "Captive Care" section to those species often kept as exotic pets? Also, would it be appropriate to list the various "morphs" obtained through captive breeding for reptiles like ball pythons and leopard geckos? If so, how might that best be done?

    Hey, everyone! Anybody have slowness issues in the past week or so? The Scratchpads team fiddled with their servers recently and would like to know if this adversely affected speed. Thanks!

    @Jennifer Hammock: No LifeDesk messages in spam folders. I even tried a second time with a different email address, no luck.

    @Kelly O'Donnell: @Kelly & Jen.. Same problem for me. Did not get an e-mail response after creating LifeDesk.

    @Eli Sarnat: Eli: Sorry I missed your original question to me. I'm one of two admins for the African ichthyology scratchpad "Africhthy" at http://africhthy.org. We are still in Scratchpad 1.0 format. Not sure when we are getting ported over, but we've created a pretty complex Scratchpad, so it will be interesting to see how it all works in v.2. I am also interested to know when it will be possible to port my momryid LifeDesk (http://mormyrids.lifedesks.org) to a Scratchpad. There remain a lot of things I like about the LifeDesk platform that I hope don't get lost in the eventual transition. I am hoping eventually to incorporate everything in my LifeDesk into my version 2.0 Scratchpad (which includes all species of African freshwater fishes, not just Mormyridae). It will be interesting to see when/if this can be done successfully!

    @Gonçalo Themudo: We've got lots of pages for hybrids in plants, and a few in animals, e.g., Anas platyrhynchos x Cairina moschata, Samia cynthia ricini x Bombyx mori, Ateles paniscus x Ateles fusciceps. Let me know if you want me to create a T. marmoratus x T. cristatus page, so you can move the image there. It would take a couple of days to show up on EOL. Once it is up, you could untrust the Triturus blasii association and add the association with the new Ateles paniscus x Ateles fusciceps page.

    Gonçalo Themudo commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    @Katja Schulz: Sorry, Katja. My mistake, I meant to say that T. blasii is supposed to be T. marmoratus X T. cristatus. As T. carnifex used to be T. cristatus carnifex, I am not sure if T. blasii could have been used at some point to describe hybrids between any marbled newt (T. marmoratus and T. pygmaeus) and any crested newt (T. cristatus, carnifex, dobrogicus and karelinii) but only marmoratus and cristatus meet naturally.

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    Triturus marmoratus x Triturus pygmaeus? Now i'm confused. In the image description, it actually says that this individual is a hybrid between T. carnifex and T. marmoratus marmoratus.

    Gonçalo Themudo commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    Well, if there are other pages for hybrids, I would move the page to "Triturus marmoratus x Triturus pygmaeus". I can write a short description. Otherwise, perhaps just move the image to both the parent taxa.

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    @Gonçalo Themudo: This is an interesting problem. It looks like we have this page only because we get this one image from Calphotos for the name "Triturus blasii." What do you think should happen to this image? We could create a new EOL taxon page for the hybrid "Triturus marmoratus x Triturus cristatus" and get rid of the Triturus blasii page? Or we could keep the Triturus blasii page, and you could add a Brief Summary explaining that this is a hybrid, rather than a separate species. We could also get rid of the Triturus blasii page and attach the image of the hybrid to both of the parent taxa, along with an explanation that the image represents a hybrid. What do you think?

    Gonçalo Themudo commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    What to do with http://eol.org/pages/6995275/overview ? The page refers to a name of what was once thought to be a different species, but is in fact merely hybrids of Triturus marmoratus and Triturus cristatus.

    Hello fellow Fellows! My project starts up in a month and I'm going through some set up now. Has anyone had a problem with LifeDesk in the past few days? I haven't gotten an activation email or a response to a question. I even tried using the tell a friend fields to see if I would get any email and that didn't work either. I'm using Firefox and Safari. Has anyone else run into trouble?
