    @Michаel Frаnkis: It looks like this field has the wrong display label. It should say "Location" rather than "Location Created." The problem is on our end, not CalPhotos. They are using a field that comes with the following description: "Natural language description of the locality where the resource was collected or created..." We do need a generic field like this because many collections don't discriminate between these two options, i.e., their "location" data are a mixture of information about where a resource was created and where a specimen was collected or even where its native range is. This is unfortunate, but it's a reality. I'll ask for that label to be changed.

    Calphotos information harvest error
    A problem I've found a few times with Calphotos, that the location data is not harvested correctly; e.g. on this item it says "Location Created: Ethiopia", but at the Calphotos original it says "photo location Rheine Zoo, Germany" . . . "animal's place of origin Ethiopia". So the EoL harvester is harvesting the wrong data line as the location.

    Can this be solved?

    @Michаel Frаnkis: by the way, I think the lag in the Milvus pictures appearing was simply because the code change means they are updated slightly later in the process than previously. So it should only happen this once. Let me know if you see it happen again.

    @Yan Wong: Ah! they've all appeared now, thanks! There's 7 pages of photos now, whereas yesterday there were just 3 pages.

    I'll check soon to see if the subsp. and var. codes are working, too.

    @Michаel Frаnkis: It might just be a time lag. I see that, for instance, http://eol.org/data_objects/28679751 is still there, which is only in Category: Milvus milvus in flight. Can you give me any examples which used to be there but aren't any more? Any idea if the subspecies & hybrid code seems to be working now?

    Thanks for letting me know. I was going to tell you that the new code for this to work is now in operation (also the code to spot subspecies/ varieties), so if any of this is not working, it's a problem from my/the EoL end. I'll try to sort out what's going on tomorrow.

    @Yan Wong: Hi Yan - As Milvus milvus popped up on my newsfeed, I looked at the species, and saw all the pics from https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Milvus_milvus_in_flight have vanished from EoL. So unfortunately, the {{Category:Milvus milvus}} trick isn't working. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    @Cyndy Parr: The pics are viewable by clicking on 'View source'. They were all from wiki commons and flickr of pics that we already have here, so they could be hidden as duplicates.

    Katja, are the images on this page http://eol.org/pages/590944/media that don't show up something we can fix? Or should we hide them? (or maybe you see all of them and it's just my browsers that show them as broken?)

    @Michаel Frаnkis: The ADW folks are very attentive to their EOL comment stream. So the best thing would be to bring this to their attention by leaving a comment on one of the affected images.

    Animal Diversity Web photos by David Blank — when I click on 'View source' for any image supplied by this supplier, I get an error message "Forbidden. You don't have permission to access /site/resources/david_blank/ on this server."

    This means I am unable to access information about the photos, including location, etc., which restricts my ability to curate these images effectively.

    Anyone have any idea what's going on there?

    @Nick Durmuller: You should see an "edit this link" button in the top right corner of the detail page for the link you have added. The easiest way to get to this page is probably from your article activity feed: http://eol.org/users/88977/activity?filter=added_data_objects

    @Katja Schulz: Thanks Katja for your help. It looks like the link-procedure works. However, when I tried it out, I made a spelling mistake. Now, how can I get back to the entry point to correct that?
