    John Tasirin commented on "EOL Curators":

    Thank you, Steve. I saw your comments in my email but they did not seem to appear here. I refreshed my browser twice, they did not come up. I wanted also to say that EOL is in a good capacity and position to standardize common names. It is nice to have a place to refer to. A common name for each living organism. I would like to establish one for Indonesia that has more than 400 working, tribal languages.

    I think, I will be happy with "Cape sugar bird", "white oaks", "Plettenberg Bay" and "Capetown".

    John Tasirin commented on "How many unknown (not yet described) species there are in world's biological collections?":

    We may see a phenomena in Facebook and other pictorial based social network. There are high proportion of plant and wildlife photography to display the beauty of the plants or animals. In Manado, Sulawesi, Indonesia, some professional photographers have accidentally taken photographs of some rare or unknown species. I wish, we can make use of their photographs and name the species properly.

    John Tasirin commented on an older version of Dicaaeum celebicum (female):

    A mis-spelling of the species name. It should be "Dicaeum celebicum".

    @Kent McFarland: One of the main reason for me to join in EOL is to identify and display all species in an island level. So I am with you, Kent. But, thank to Bob and Jennifer for introducing Scratchpads. I may need to explore it further.

    @Cyndy Parr: I will try to visit EOL time to time. I am hoping to dedicate more time as my students and colleagues may also benefit from EOL.
