    I think having the maps available on the overview page is a great idea, and the ranking by rating makes good sense. Another good improvement.

    @Tanya Higgins: Not yet. The map thumbnail that shows up in the Overview tab will be the one with the highest rating from the Maps tab (so be sure to rate maps everyone!). Right now, the only place the iNaturalist maps show up is on a special tab on collections, for example Birds in North American cities

    @Cyndy Parr: Sadly, the organisms I've been collecting as of late haven't had much information associated, but I think the maps are an excellent idea. Do they work with the new observation features?

    Anybody here notice we now have maps on the overview tab? What do you think?

    @Jennifer Hammock: Some of the Wiki entries do have brief sections on captive care, and I certainly wouldn't recommend adding anything terribly detailed, but I think it might be a nice blank to fill in. I have started a collection of species kept as exotic pets and will be doing what I can to fill in information (sooooo many of them are completely blank), just want to make sure the information I provide is worthy. :)

    @Bart C.: We desperately need to refresh our content from BOLD but they are not responding and so far the process is manual. I will copy your comment here: http://eol.org/collections/26028/newsfeed so that they will see that users are asking.

    Jennifer Hammock commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    @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!

    @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.
