    @Cyndy Parr: Ok, done that (http://eol.org/pages/4051060/resources/citizen_science). But I didn't find a way to link it directly to the original page. Hopefully next time I can use the "link object". Sounds great!

    A nice piece on Stijn Cooleman's Lifedesk for those of you who read french or dutch

    Thanks for the tip, Stijn! Don't be shy, everyone, about reporting publicity you receive in languages other than English. Our international audience would love to read about your adventures!

    @Bart C.: For now, you can leave most of those fields blank or set to the defaults. If you have borrowed explanatory text from the citizen science project (with their permission) ask them which license they want and put their name in the rights holder field. You can see two examples I just did last week on the Monarch page.

    @Ximo Mengual: Hi, Ximo! You can make your LD classification available via this method: http://syrphidae.lifedesks.org/admin/classification/biological/export/share. Put the url to your exported classification as an additional resource in your Content Partner account and let me know when it's up. Note that this is a manual publication- you can update whenever you like (we suggest not more than quarterly) so we strongly advise you to put a version number or date in the title and citation. Eventually we'll replace this resource in your CP account with the Scratchpads equivalent, after you're migrated, but that won't be for a few quarters, I expect.

    @Michael Wunderli: The harvester was halted for a major deploy last week and was reinitiated last night. We've got our eyes on it.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    @Bart C.: Hi Bart - we're working through the requirements for a new type of object on EOL - a "link object" - that would be for exactly the sort of thing you want to do. No license or rights holder required for links - just a link, a title and perhaps a short description, a category (for where EOL puts it), and voila, there you go. Stay tuned.

    @Cyndy Parr: I'm happy with diversity, but the page didn't look especially rich, that's all.

    @Bart C.: Hi Bart! Where do you want to add the citizen science link? Do you want to add it to a particular Collection? Happy to help.

    @Bob Corrigan: Looks like I added, probably in an attempt to show some plant diversity. Or maybe by accident. We can remove it!

    I am seeing some exciting changes/improvements happening again! I tried to add a sitizen science link (http://www.hertsmiddx-butterflies.org.uk/w-album/index.php), but the whole form is a bit challenging for me. What do I have to populate in the boxes for license, rights hodler, rights statement for this case?

    Hi Jen, I have now selecte my preferred classification of the 2 options I had; the problem is that "my" classification" differs from ITIS or Catalogue of Life (basically because is more up-to-date). Can I use my classification? How?

    Jennifer Hammock commented on "Scratchpads Community":

    Attribution fields: a new and improved attribution/copyright module will be added in the next couple of months; stand by for more options for crediting multiple colleagues, people who don't belong to your Scratchpad, etc. For the moment, a Creator field has been added for media files, so feel free to use it. If you'd like to go ahead and add material to your Scratchpad for which the current attribution fields aren't sufficient, be advised you should be able to easily correct the attribution (or anything else) after the fact on large numbers of objects that should all have the same contents in any field. Select Content from your top menu and then select Grid beside any content type you wish to bulk-edit. Use the checkboxes on the left, you'll get the idea.

    Biblio imports: autotagging with taxa, last I checked, was not working yet and Laurence promised to verify whether keywords are going to be included as a source for names for autotagging. If you have a bibliography you're waiting to upload, and you keep taxon names in it in any field other than title or keywords, please sing out!
