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

    @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.

    @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.

    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!

    Maria del Rosario Castañeda commented on "Rubenstein Fellows":

    @Jennifer Hammock: Hi Jen, I had no trouble selecting my preferred classification, but a quick question, do I have to do it one species at the time? or is there a way to do it in bulk? I changed the classification for the entire genus (Anolis), but it didn't automatically applied to all the species within. Did I miss something?

    Hello everyone! I'm new to this community and was wondering if anyone can show me how to organize the content from external contributors (e.g., EOL pages, wikipedia, IUCN), like in this AFRICHTHY page! (http://africhthy.org/category/classification/elasmobranchii/pristiformes/pristidae/pristis/pristis-microdon-latham-1794/p). Thanks!

    @Eli Sarnat: We had originally thought about calling that feature "bookmarks", but the concept of collections took over (I'm glad it did).

    @Eli Sarnat: Good idea, Eli! The other common term I've heard is bookmarks.

    ah, I realize I must have gotten this idea from EOL's 'add to collection' feature!

    Eli Sarnat commented on "Scratchpads Community":

    Hi folks, I'm working with a drupal developer to add some more modules and help with existing issues for Scratchpads. One module we're developing is a 'Favorites' feature, which allows users to flag any content type as a 'favorite', and it gets added to a 'my favorites' block arranged by category type. The idea is for users to have quick links to content they frequently use or want to keep track of. Just wanted to put this idea out there in case someone here has suggestions or comments on how to improve it. For example, can anyone think of a better name than 'favorites'? One alternative I'm considering is 'My Collection', with 'add to collection' and 'remove from collection' links.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    @Roderic Page: Here are some of the use cases that are pointing to this "link object" - a news story on taxon FOO, a website with an identification resource, a project website, even (heaven help us) a link to a publication, all stuff we can't import but stuff we want to point to. The justification behind making these "objects" is that they become curate-able, rank-able, collect-able and accessible via the API. The problem here may be that the term "link object" collides with "linked open data" which is an entirely different animal.
