    @Michаel Frаnkis: Michael - I've requested it now and we'll see if it appears.

    @Cyndy Parr: Thanks. Makes more sense now - I was trying to cut and paste the Wiki article into the text box instead of requesting an import.

    @Jamie McMillan: 1) We pretty much bring in all the content from the Wikipedia page but we don't separate out the references -- they'll just be at the bottom of the object on EOL. 2) Instructions for finding the Wikipedia permalink are here: http://eol.org/wikipedia_imports/new Give it a few days to see if it gets successfully harvested.

    @Joanne Taylor: Propagating classifications down the tree is definitely still on the wish list, but development is not yet planned. However, the short story is if you want it done soon, you're going to have to do it by hand. This issue is near and dear to me since I have same problem for the fungal genus Amanita which has about 1300 species listed in EOL. However, if it isn't urgent, then you could wait as I expect it will get done eventually. Right now there's a bunch of stuff that we consider to have higher priority. Getting feedback from the EOL Curators is a great way to raise its priority. However, the software team (which I lead) doesn't think this will be an easy feature to implement. Some of the challenges we have are what do you do as you go through the tree and find other existing nodes that have already had a preferred classification set? One notion is that you keep track of where the classification was explicitly set and where it was inferred. Then you stop when you come to a node where it has been explicitly set, but how do you report that in a clear way to the user and is there anything they can do about it? There are also some nasty problems when classifications change. Another option would be to walk up the tree looking for nodes where the classification has been set. However, due to supporting multiple classification, there can be any number of chains of ancestors and there's nothing forcing them to have the same selected classification. For example, if you've selected Catalog of Life as the preferred classification for Chordata, but NCBI as preferred for Coelurosauria, what do you do for Aves since the first is the parent of Aves according to CoL, but the second is the parent in NCBi? Hope this helps!

    @Jamie McMillan: Can't see why the wikipedia article isn't there. It doesn't depend on the English name, it is harvested from the scientific name in the taxobox, and that's correctly formatted.

    Trying to add Wikipedia content to Agrotis ipsilon, I think missed as it didn't have the UK common name Dark Sword-grass attached. 1) Is it the whole article with all the contents, refs etc, or just bits? 2) Can't work out how to change the Wiki URL to a permalink. Thanks.

    @Bob Corrigan: Just wondering if you are still looking at allowing 'propogating down' when selecting a preferred classification? Just started on the big squatty genus Munidopsis (over 200 species) and I want them all to follow the same classification without having to select each one manually. Can you please update me on whether you are still considering this before I waste a whole heap of time? Many thanks, Jo

    I have noticed something about the descriptions of some of the species in the Hypocreales (e.g. Hypomyces, Hypocrea). For example, one description of a species of Hypomyces says: "Title: Infected fruitbodies - close-up Type: standard photograph or close-up Camera: NikonD100+T90 Russula emetica on deformed gills. Summary: Deforming gills of Russula emetica Site: Curr Wood Country: Scotland More info..." How is this information imported from the source? It really should read something like this: Title: Infected fruitbodies - close-up Type: standard photograph or close-up Camera: NikonD100+T90 Hypomyces xxxx on deformed gills of Russula emetica. Summary: Deforming gills of Russula emetica Site: Curr Wood Country: Scotland More info... As a curator, what can I do about this?

    @Priscila Chaverri: It depends on the particular case. If the current name is represented in one of the classifications in the Names tab, you can change the name of the taxon page by selecting that classification as the preferred one. If the current name is on another EOL page, the pages need to be merged. Please put them on the Taxon Concept Management To Do List.
