    Okay, here's a followup scenario for those of you who both curate and post images via flickr: As a curator, if you had an occasional photo coming in that you weren't sure of, you *could* visit those photos yourself and mark them unreviewed. Anyone want to hazard an opinion, "sure, I'd bother to do that" or "not likely, you're lucky I have time to do one kind of activity"? Thanks!

    @Jennifer Hammock: Yes, certifying certain Flickr contributors as "pre-trusted" is a great idea. That would save huge amounts of time. Since I became a curator, for instance, I've spent quite a bit of time finding my images on EOL and trusting them. It is very tedious, especially since the delay in harvesting can be long. Certainly there should be some process to approve certain reliable contributors in this fashion. I agree that the benefit would outweigh the occasional error. (And, as others have mentioned, there are some errors anyway in already pre-trusted images from institutions--inevitable in a project of this scope.)

    @Jason Sharp: I think flickr images should be pre-trusting to EOL. Some errors are normal... Some curators take years to curate a few images!

    @Jennifer Hammock: I know a few photographers that seem to know their stuff and continue to contribute images. I believe the time saved by 'pre-trusting' their images would outweigh the time spent fixing the occasional mistakes. It seems some of the Smithsonian photos are pre-trusted and they have some errors.

    Hey, all! Michael just raised an interesting Trustedness question and our developers would like your feedback. Those of you who curate lots of our flickr images: are there flickr photographers whose content you always trust? Would it be useful to flag these individuals so their flickr content comes in Trusted by default? If you would use this feature, if you think this would save you 5000 trusting actions on the first day, or if you have concerns about the idea, please let us know. Thanks!

    @George Sims: Ah, that's a collection created by a user. You can click on the "Managers" tab to see who created it -- might have been a student. You can leave a message for her in the newsfeed of the collection if you want. Maybe suggest she change the title? She didn't put a description of her collection so unclear why she collected them together.
