    @Jason Sharp: I agree with Katja. There is nothing necessarily inaccurate about an image with a watermark, so it shouldn't be automatic grounds for untrusting. But I'd downrate too, especially if there are better images without watermarks. I suppose if the watermark message were hateful I'd consider hiding.

    @Jason Sharp: I find that watermark corny, but I wouldn't worry about it too much. It's just a form of personal expression, and I would trust the image as long as the watermark doesn't obscure the subject too much. Generally, I tend to rate images with any kind of large watermark lower than unmarked images.

    I wanted to bring attention to this type of 'watermark' which is being submitted via the Flickr group. I have come across some of these pictures and was unsure if I should 'trust' them with what I believe is a questionable 'watermark'. Please advise. http://eol.org/data_objects/19141099

    Hey folks, inspired by Fake Wikipedia Caught by Reddit I've done a little searching on EOL to make sure we aren't getting mythical or otherwise malicious content. I found one mythical creature and have hidden it. Let us know if you find anything you think is suspicious!

    @Michael Wunderli: Sorry, Michael! The harvests are moving now but there's still a backlog. Your species list should be available shortly.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    @Roderic Page: Here are some of the use cases that are pointing to this "link object" - a news story on taxon FOO, a website with an identification resource, a project website, even (heaven help us) a link to a publication, all stuff we can't import but stuff we want to point to. The justification behind making these "objects" is that they become curate-able, rank-able, collect-able and accessible via the API. The problem here may be that the term "link object" collides with "linked open data" which is an entirely different animal.

    @Roderic Page: All good points, Roderic, thanks, all read and understood. It will be nice to have a choice. BTW I really agree with your Internet Archive point. That effort is really useful.

    @Cyndy Parr: OK, now I see the context. EOL news feeds really need threads.

    Cyndy Parr commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    @Roderic Page: In this case, I think Bart C wanted to link to a Citizen Science project. So the link involved was not so much to data but to a set of tools and a specialized community that wouldn't make much sense to bring into EOL. Otherwise I agree with most of what you say.
