    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!!

    @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!

    @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.

    Picking up on the discussion about the trigger-happiness of the set as exemplar tool, we now have mockups for a couple of possible solutions. Please see Possible Improvements to the Set as Exemplar Tool and let us know what you think.

    Meiying Lin commented on "EOL Curators":

    Jen, when you told me that zookeys publications will automatically upload to eol, I thought all taxa mentioned in zookeys would be uploaded. Recently I found that actually only new taxa published in zookeys would be uploaded. Am I right? In this case, I think I should add the old species redescribed or remarked in zookeys to eol. Right?

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Michael Wunderli: How many taxa in your collection are affected? If the number is manageable, we can solve this with our new taxon concept management tools, which should become available shortly. I have made you a manager of the Taxon Concept Management To Do List. If any of the taxa in your list were inappropriately merged with other taxa, please add these taxa to collection and then add an annotation with information on which names need to be split into separate taxon concepts. If you have any questions about this process, let's discuss them in the collection newsfeed.

    Todd Elliott commented on "EOL Curators":

    I have a stock photo collection and I have focused my attention on esoteric and seldom illustrated species. Many of the species I have images of do not have any pictures yet on the EOL site. I am willing to contribute some of these images as long as I maintain rights and can put my signature on the image. To post I have to go through the flicker page right? Anything I need to know about images and rights on the EOL site?
