    @Hans-Martin Braun: Thanks, this is now fixed. If you see any more problems like this, please report them here: Taxon Clean-Up To Do List. We'll then take care of them as soon as possible.

    @Cindy Parr: Lunella coronata has two different entries for the identical species: http://eol.org/pages/3050361/names and http://eol.org/pages/3013236/names. Whatever the reason, something seems to be wrong here.

    @Yan Wong: The Wikimedia Commons collection should update over the weekend, and we'll harvest it every couple of weeks after that. Thanks for the nudge!

    @Yan Wong: Hi Yan, not sure what's going on. I put in a request to get an update on the status of the Wikimedia Commons harvest.

    @Katja Schulz: On that note, I see it's been over 3 months since wikimedia was harvested (http://eol.org/content_partners/119). Are there plans to run it again soon? Have you sorted out your disk space issues?

    @Eric Peterson:

    A 'harvest now' button would be great, but I'm afraid it's not feasible right now. Harvesting data from over 300 sources is a very resource-intensive endeavor.

    Flickr gets harvested almost every night, so most of the time, there will be a 24 hour turnaround for images there. Sometimes it may take longer if there are harvesting delays. Calphotos is harvested weekly, so the turnaround time will be a little longer there. You can check the CalPhotos collection to get an idea when it was last harvested, but note that "weekly" does not mean exactly every 7 days. Sometimes it may take a day or two longer.

    Eric Peterson commented on "EOL Curators":

    What is the image harvesting cycle? I'd like to work on photos and other information for a number of lichens. It is a little awkward to post images on Flickr or CalPhotos, then have to wait an unspecified length of time before the images show up. Knowing how long it will be would help. Even better would be some sort of 'harvest now' button on the media page for species and sub-specific taxa. Thanks!

    If you haven't tried it, I invite you to try the manual recropping tools for thumbnail images. As you've probably noticed, we have an automatic cropping algorithm that often works, but slightly less often doesn't work. It takes the upper left part of an image, so for animals facing right it doesn't work at all. You can recrop any image by going to the image page, drawing a square on it, then saving using the "crop image" button.

    I saw the collection go from 300 items before reindexing to 301 after...Perhaps this was true causation and perhaps not, but I saw the count go up.

    Thanks Leo & Katja, it's now in the collection but I'm 102.3% it wasn't a couple of hours ago...

    @Jakob Fahr: Yes, I see it on page 4 of the collection. Are you sure it wasn't there earlier?

    @Jakob Fahr: Have a look, but I think it's there now; maybe just needed reindexing?

    Hi everyone! This taxon http://eol.org/pages/327629 should be part of this collection: http://eol.org/collections/57003 but doesn't show up in the list of the latter. Any idea what the problem might be?

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Michael, we'll keep these suggestions in mind if we get a chance to change the software to accommodate taxon-based or geographic-based variants of labels for data. As you know, developer time is always precious so we have to juggle priorities. Thanks for your input.

    Michаel Frаnkis commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Cyndy Parr: Thanks! Another taxon-specific one needed is to change 'litters' to 'broods' for Aves. Maybe for some Mammalia too, I'd not think of a baby Elephas maximus as 'litter'!
    On spelling variants, I think this is better done by taxon, depending on the region they are from, so just as 'colour' is correct for old world taxa, so is 'color' for new world taxa.
    I'll take a look at promoting / removing items; I couldn't work out how to do it before.
