    If you haven't tried it, I invite you to try the manual recropping tools for thumbnail images. As you've probably noticed, we have an automatic cropping algorithm that often works, but slightly less often doesn't work. It takes the upper left part of an image, so for animals facing right it doesn't work at all. You can recrop any image by going to the image page, drawing a square on it, then saving using the "crop image" button.

    I saw the collection go from 300 items before reindexing to 301 after...Perhaps this was true causation and perhaps not, but I saw the count go up.

    Thanks Leo & Katja, it's now in the collection but I'm 102.3% it wasn't a couple of hours ago...

    @Jakob Fahr: Yes, I see it on page 4 of the collection. Are you sure it wasn't there earlier?

    @Jakob Fahr: Have a look, but I think it's there now; maybe just needed reindexing?

    Hi everyone! This taxon http://eol.org/pages/327629 should be part of this collection: http://eol.org/collections/57003 but doesn't show up in the list of the latter. Any idea what the problem might be?

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Michael, we'll keep these suggestions in mind if we get a chance to change the software to accommodate taxon-based or geographic-based variants of labels for data. As you know, developer time is always precious so we have to juggle priorities. Thanks for your input.

    Michаel Frаnkis commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Cyndy Parr: Thanks! Another taxon-specific one needed is to change 'litters' to 'broods' for Aves. Maybe for some Mammalia too, I'd not think of a baby Elephas maximus as 'litter'!
    On spelling variants, I think this is better done by taxon, depending on the region they are from, so just as 'colour' is correct for old world taxa, so is 'color' for new world taxa.
    I'll take a look at promoting / removing items; I couldn't work out how to do it before.

    John P. Sullivan commented on "Scratchpads Community":

    Bob, Thanks for your reply. Well, clearly the proposed partnership with Scratchpads hasn't panned out the way envisioned. As I say, familiar as I am with both platforms I do not wish to see LifeDesks migrated. I wish to see LifeDesks at least supported and preferably developed. I have a hard time understanding how LifeDesks are extraneous to EOL's core mission. I see there are still a few of us actively adding to our LifeDesks and I bet some of them would agree with me. There have not been any bug fixes since May of 2012, despite bugs being reported (by me, for example). Could we at least get bug fixes/maintenance restored? It seems presumptuous to expect folks to invest themselves in new initiatives when EOL has a track record of dropping support for them after a few years.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Scratchpads Community":

    @John P. Sullivan: John, thanks for your note. The bottom line is that EOL in 2010 had been pulled in too many directions, and needed to focus on its core mission - with the emergence of the Scratchpad project, we saw an opportunity to work with a team whose primary mission was creating a workbench product - which would allow them to focus on fundraising and sustainability challenges for their interests as we did the same for ours. I will forward your comments to the Scratchpads team, who are always attentive to feedback on how they can improve their product. We continue to maintain Lifedesk online, and will be working to provide migration tools. You can always export the data from a Lifedesk to your machine for archival purposes. Bob

    John P. Sullivan commented on "Scratchpads Community":

    Boy, things have been quiet on here. Back in 2011 when it was announced that EOL would stop developing the LifeDesk platform, those of us who were putting hours and hours into our LifeDesks were assured that we wouldn't be left high and dry because a system would be developed to port LifeDesks into Scratchpads. Has that initiative been abandoned? Was that responsibility just dumped upon the Scratchpad people? Seems like we *were* left high and dry as I had feared. I maintain both a v.2 Scratchpad and LifeDesk. Both have their particular strengths and unique capabilities. I can say unequivocally that I do not want to see my Lifedesk ported to a Scratchpad. What I'd like is LifeDesks support and development to be reinitiated. Sorry to see EOL attracting funding for new initiatives like TraitBank while leaving what was in my opinion one of its most promising initiatives to languish. I like my LifeDesk in many respects better than the Scratchpad, particularly in the layout of the species pages, tagging content with taxonomic names via the pop-up window and intuitiveness of the interface. It's also a hell of a lot speedier than the new Scratchpads. LifeDesks came very close to being a perfect platform for a lot of us: a stand-alone site that can be used by specialists and the public alike, a great way to organize taxonomic information and to get content into EOL. I am very unhappy with EOL for abandoning LifeDesks. Who's with me here?
