    @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?

    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?

    @Michael Wunderli: Michael, if you edit your profile and request curator status (either assistant or full), you will be able to add common names to the Names tab of any page. Thanks for offering to help!

    Hallo Thank you again for letting the harvester run for me! it worked great, but i have a questions. For most plants in my collection, EOL doesn't show the german common name. Even though the data is present in the harvested website. Is there a way to change that. Or how can I add german names to the eol database? Thank you for your time and efforts! Michael

    @Jason Sharp: In this case my recommendation is as my colleagues have already suggested. That said, the description of the photo. . .that's wild!

    Cyndy Parr commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    @Jason Sharp: I agree with Katja. There is nothing necessarily inaccurate about an image with a watermark, so it shouldn't be automatic grounds for untrusting. But I'd downrate too, especially if there are better images without watermarks. I suppose if the watermark message were hateful I'd consider hiding.

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    @Jason Sharp: I find that watermark corny, but I wouldn't worry about it too much. It's just a form of personal expression, and I would trust the image as long as the watermark doesn't obscure the subject too much. Generally, I tend to rate images with any kind of large watermark lower than unmarked images.

    Jason Sharp commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    I wanted to bring attention to this type of 'watermark' which is being submitted via the Flickr group. I have come across some of these pictures and was unsure if I should 'trust' them with what I believe is a questionable 'watermark'. Please advise. http://eol.org/data_objects/19141099

    Hey folks, inspired by Fake Wikipedia Caught by Reddit I've done a little searching on EOL to make sure we aren't getting mythical or otherwise malicious content. I found one mythical creature and have hidden it. Let us know if you find anything you think is suspicious!

    @Michael Wunderli: Sorry, Michael! The harvests are moving now but there's still a backlog. Your species list should be available shortly.

    Jennifer Hammock commented on "Rubenstein Fellows":

    @Maria del Rosario Castañeda: Good question, Rosario! For now it's one species at a time only. Once we've seen how that goes we may experiment with more sweeping tools, but we need to be cautious with it- large changes could be produced very suddenly if the preference propagated automatically to all child taxa. For the moment at least you have made all the Anolis species in the TRD more easily findable and that is the important thing! If anyone has an opinion about this or any other feedback about this feature please share it here or in the EOL discussion group!
