    Heads up that SP2 platform implemented the bulk image upload. It works pretty smooth, but I found best success going more for ~30mb batches than the purported 50mb max.

    @Kelly O'Donnell: Kelly, it's supposed to be okay to have multiple names at the same rank (don't add any higher ranks!) but check afterwards, and if you run into trouble, you can remove one of the names on flickr and associate the video with the missing taxon manually on eol with the "add association" button.

    Hi all. I have a video of a monarch caterpillar feeding on Asclepias tuberosa. I'm uploading it through Flickr and I have a question. I'd like the video to appear on both species pages. Will it confuse the EOL harvester if there are multiple machine tags for the same taxonomic rank?

    @Michаel Frаnkis: You can leave it hidden. I'll re-upload a rotated version of this image through the Rapid Response LIfeDesk. It should show up on the page in a few days.

    Actually the original on Flickr is not upright (which is why it isn't on EOL either) - go to the flickr page, right-click on the pic, and select 'Original'.

    Given that it's the only image for the genus, a mis-rotated image is better than no image at all, I'd mark it as visible. If people need a copy of the image under its creative commons license, they can easily rotate it 90° after downloading.

    @Annette Olson: Unfortunately, there's no way to do this right now. People can rotate their images on Flickr, but we get the original, unedited version of the image through the API, so the manual rotation on Flickr does not affect the images we get.

    Annette Olson commented on "EOL Curators":

    Is there a way to rotate an incoming image within EOL itself? There is an vertical image in Flickr (correctly oriented), that in my worklist is turned 90 degrees. I have 'trusted' but 'hidden' the image, and it remained incorrectly oriented. (See "Galidictis", for which there is only 1 media listed.) Just wondering if this is a random aberration, or if this has happened before and there's a way to correct it.

    Hey all, The Scratchpads team sends their apologies. They've been having power issues at their museum's data center which is causing slowness on the platform. They're trying to work out a solution quickly but you may want to move your content activities offline for a little while. Sorry!!

    @Kelly O'Donnell: Kelly, it would be trivial to add a "next/previous image" function to that photo page.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    @Michael Wunderli: That is an interesting use case. What you're looking to do is to have language be a key for different sets of content associated with a collection, right? So in one collection, you could have titles, descriptions, references and annotations in separate languages. If this is what you want just let me know.

    @Katja Schulz: I really hope to get to the NMNH sometime this year, maybe for an ESW meeting, and meet you. I would also like to meet Torsten!

    Michael Wunderli commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    I was wondering how to handle multilingual collections. until now i just duplicated the collection and made one title in french, italien, german and english, but it's actually exactly the same collection. This makes it complicated for me if i want to change something, i have to go then to all the collections and make the same change several times. i was thinking about putting the not english titels into the collection description. But i wanted to ask first, maybe there is a better solution?

    @Bob Corrigan: I understand how that could be a problem. The Danny Su page is a nicer interface. It still requires two clicks to get to the next image though, but you don't have to wait for a whole page to load, so that's good.

    @Paul Bedell: Thanks Paul. Torsten Dikow is planning to look at the EOL Asilidae as soon as he gets settled in his new postdoc here at the Smithsonian. Hopefully he can help with some of the Australian species.

    Katja, We need a curator for Australian Asilidae. There are many uncurated photos, but we need someone who is familiar with the many species they have there.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    One of the challenges with adding a "next" button to the object page is context: how do we know you're looking at it in the context of the taxon page? The Actual Solution is to envision other ways of looking at photos that allow you to see more of them at once, and move within that visual context faster. For example, give a look at http://eol.dannysu.com - and the explanation page here.

    @Michael Wunderli: A little late to this conversation, but I agree that a "next image" button would be very useful for browsing.
