    @Yan Wong: Maps as images are a frustrating problem. I'm manually collecting examples in this collection: http://eol.org/collections/23389 . The problem is that often our providers can't tell us that they are maps. In other cases we just don't have the time to go back to providers and revise the exports. Someone could probably write code to automatically flag possible maps based on image or caption characteristics. Google Summer of Code project, anyone?

    By the way, I'm no expert in French, but surely this can't be a correct "vernacular name" returned by the pages API: { "vernacularName": "Mus musculus", "language": "fr", "eol_preferred": true },

    I'm trying to automatically scrape images of organisms for http://www.onezoom.org/ . Some of the images associated with species are distribution maps (e.g. http://eol.org/data_objects/14840166), and I'm getting some of these in my downloads. Is there a system for identifying and flagging these up as maps rather than organism images? Also, I have some automated scripts to get images & construct image attribution lines from a large file of species names, if anyone is interested.

    @Bart C.: We're working on a better way to upload a batch of taxa into a collection. But there is a way you can do this right now -- use the spreadsheet upload method as if you are adding content to EOL. Then you can copy to a "fresh" collection so you can easily add and subtract new pages from there. Feel free to contact Jen Hammock who can help you.

    Would it be possible to construct and submit a list of species you want to add to a collection via a spreadsheet? I am a member of group of naturalists that want to establish fauna lists for our working area. We want to publish this on our website. A link to an EOL collection would be perfect to update annotations instantly, without bothering our webmaster too much and have additional information about those species one click away for our visitors. Adding hundreds of species one by one to a collection and adding annotations and references via the EOL one by one is a bit too much.

    @Deniz Martinez: Unfortunately, grabbing images from Wikimedia Commons is a bit of a gnarly affair for us. Here's a page that explains the harvesting conditions: http://eol.org/info/curate_wiki#commons I had a look at the image you want to have imported, and it turns out that it was not yet in the Cavia aperea gallery. I have put it there, and it should get imported with our next harvest, which will probably happen sometime next week.

    Hello! I am new to EOL and to curating, and have already run into my first problem. :) I found an image on WikiCommons that is not on the species page here on EOL, and am unsure how to fix it so that it harvests. Here is the link: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cuis_com%C3%BAn_(Cavia_aperea),_Tierpark_Hellabrunn,_M%C3%BAnich,_Alemania,_2012-06-17,_DD_01.JPG#filehistory I can see that there is obviously some incorrect info in the description (not an ostrich LOL!), but the license is good and it does link to its category page (just not the gallery). Thanks!

    @Michael Wunderli: Yes, I guess that is when Xeno-Canto joined us. We're really glad and looking forward to more sounds from them in the future.

    Does anyone else encounter much content from Plazi? The ant pages are littered with 20 unintelligible snippets for every 1 coherent article. I'm wondering whether there is an option to make the default setting for Plazi content (at least for Formicidae?) hidden.
