    @Meiying Lin: Actually, the redescriptions in Zookeys also come to us, but through Plazi.org.

    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?

    @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?

    @Katja Schulz: Hallo Katja, thanks for your help! I found the same problem with some other plants and therefor created this collection. How can i solve this, should i delete the items and replace them with the synonyms? is there a way i could do that. I also run into an other problem when i tried to add items to my collections. I have 24 collections, but when I select an item an click on add to a collection, i can only choose from about 4 of them. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that the other collections where created over the contentpartner tool.

    Most of the Birds of America images are on Wikimedia Commons. Some of them are probably already included in our WC import. Those that are not can be made available to EOL by placing them into a WC gallery with a taxonavigation section. For instructions on how to do this, see Wikipedia/Wikimedia Commons Tools for Curators.

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Michael Wunderli: Unfortunately, EOL taxon pages don't list all the synonym information our algorithm uses to create taxon concepts. Tools for the exploration of synonym relationships are on the to do list of our informatics team, but they are currently busy with other things. We have an admin tool that lets us look up all the information that goes into a taxon concept.

    We are currently working on an iNaturalist to EOL image export. It should start working soon. iNaturalist will send us images from all Research Grade observations that are released under EOL compatible creative commons licenses.

    Are any of the illustrations from Audobon's Birds of America on EOL? I tried to find some of the more famous ones, like his golden eagle painting, or american flamingo, but couldn't. The images from his book have been digitized and are available at several sites, including the Audobon society website and the University of Pittsburg, but both are copyrighted. Could either of these be added to EOL?

    Michael Wunderli commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Katja Schulz: Thank you all for the hints! does the information that there is a synonym for this name show on the page itself? or how did you find that out? and some completly different question. I recently started using iNaturalist.org, do the pictures i upload there show up on eol.org?

    @Katja Schulz: Excellent! I will stay tuned up and wait for this tool :-) I will work at the genera I am revising (Scartelaos and Apocryptes included) as soon as it's available.

    Do you have a longstanding research question, involving a large number of taxa? Do you suspect the sum of human knowledge contains enough information to provide the answer ? Maybe you’ve never tackled it because it's just way too much work to extract it from its myriad locations? Can EOL help? We need your input on this subject to inform our development priorities and resource allocation in the coming year.

    Tell us the question you want to ask. Tell us the kinds of data you would need, and from where in our collections you think it could be extracted. Visit our Wishes for Research page to learn more and make a wish. Wishes will be posted publicly and priority wishes will be chosen by a vote of the EOL Curator community. The authors of the chosen wishes will be awarded their choice of soon-to-be-coveted, limited-edition EOL themed gear, with our thanks.
