    @Bart C.: Bart, Map of Life (mappinglife.org) has a data manager (actually three right now, but one whose focus is connect with the community) who has the job of making this effort as painless and efficient as possible for the provider. We do need a little help from the providers to assure proper citation and link-backs. You can see the provider citation information in our Data Dashboard on the site. I hope this helps!

    @Jamie McMillan: Are your data being imported in mappingoflife.org now? I would like to know how it works to map names and locations to such a database. It must consume a lot of time. Other suggestions for you would be to contact one or more owners of websites like project noah, ispot, inaturalist, observado.org, etc. if they can import it into one of their databases. But I doubt they want to map mismatches for you.

    @Alan Couch: Thanks, but I think it is a level or two higher than what I am after which is easy basic input of worldwide observations.

    Hi Cyndy. We should probably do those wikipedia changes in a batch. There are about 30 species in that out of date genus there (EoL is up to date). and while we are at it we can add some general text to eol and wikipedia that embraces the genus as a whole, its limited distribution, evolutionary aspects and add some important sources. Let me know when someone is available and i can provide some template ideas.

    @Jamie McMillan: http://www.gbif.org/ is probably what you are after. Or http://www.ala.org.au/ for the Australian stuff :-)

    @Robert Guralnick: Thanks. That was quick! I will have a look. I can send thousands of names and contact details in a mailshot to an online database so think I should be able to do the same somewhere with bio records.

    @Jamie McMillan: The Map of Life project is built for that exact use case. See mappinglife.org for more information. Happy to put you in touch with our data managers who can help with ingest. We don't have automated forms for that yet, but we do take credit for providing such data very seriously. You can click the data dashboard at the Map of Life site for more dataset information. I hope this helps!

    Jamie McMillan commented on "EOL Curators":

    Here is a very big question. I have wildlife records in text form from all over the world. Is there any website that would accept them as EXcel, CSV text or whatever, and is there a way of geotagging text records like this? Basically I would like to do what I am doing with my photos and EOL, but without the photos! And preferably not to have to enter each record manually!

    @Michael Thomas: I have added it to the iNaturalist collection, so overnight (or maybe next night, if we already missed the nightly process) your collection should be an iNat project and selectable from the mobile iNat app. I also made you a manager of the iNaturalist collection so you can add other collections whenever you wish. If you haven't already, see the instructions here http://eol.org/info/making_observations .

    @Stephen Thorpe: Hmm, I logged in as you and I was able to see the Edit button. Maybe you didn't click all the way through to the article (using "Learn more about this article" which takes you from the taxon page and to the article page). It's a pain, I know.

    @Cyndy Parr: I see the problem now: if I go to the article via the taxon page, the edit button isn't there. But if I go via my articles added, it is there! Thanks ...

    @Stephen Thorpe: First you need to go to the text article page -- fastest will be to go to your profile and select "16 articles added" to get the list of articles you have contributed. Click on the title of the one you want and you will be taken to the specific article page. You'll see an "Edit this article" button on the upper right. You can also get to the object pages by selecting "Learn more about this article" when you see it on the Overview or Details tab. If you are not seeing the edit button, let me know and I'll report the problem.

    Stephen Thorpe commented on "Cyndy Parr":

    How do I edit an article I have added (e.g. see Acanthopterus, where there are some minor formatting issues I need to edit)? It might be obvious, but I'm just not seeing a way to edit it after it is submitted ...
