    @Eduard Solà: I think you are wonderful! Not many people understand it is a privilege when animals seem to trust the most dangerous species; humans. For some reason whitetail deer, raccoon, chipmunks, and most recently, fox have decided to let me share their lives. It is always a compliment I feel is sacred. You must give them a feeling of trustworthiness. Enjoy while they are with you, they are memories that will last forever. Fellow animal admirer, Donna

    @Kento Furui: We are currently dealing with the aftermath of migrating EOL data and software to new servers. This issue may be related to the migration. It will take us a couple of weeks to get things back to normal. Please check back in a little while and let us know if the problem persists.

    API hierarchy_entry returns error when the result json is too big. hierarchy_entry gives the entire list of descendants of a taxon. When this list of descendants is too large, it becomes error. Is there a way around?

    @Katja Schulz: Thank you! I'll try that API instead. Is pages API getting fixed any time soon?

    @Kento Furui: Sorry about that. Not sure why the IUCN status is missing from the pages API. It's still in the TraitBank API, which you can call using page ids, e.g.: http://eol.org/api/traits/324407 gives you the data for the Aye-aye. Look for "dwc:measurementType":{"rdfs:label":{"en":"conservation status"},"@id":"http://rs.tdwg.org/ontology/voc/SPMInfoItems#ConservationStatus"}

    Hi. Please forgive me if this is wrong place to ask. EOL pages API is not returning iucn status. It gives me no data objects for iucn. I have tried it with different taxonIDs. None of them worked. Please help me. Thanks.

    @Hamid Nourashraf: Hi Hamid, we usually have a dump file with all of our name and hierarchy information available. But unfortunately, this service is down right now because we are in the middle of moving our servers to a new location. If you can work with a slightly out of date version, there's one here from February: http://s.si.edu/1DP05dj

    Is it possible to get the name of all species indexed in eol? I have searched in the API page but could not find anything. I have some books ocr-scanned and like to annotate name of species if any

    Yan Wong commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Katja Schulz: Hmm, I wouldn't want to do this per-image, as there may be many more like this. I guess one possibility is to change the identifier that EoL uses, e.g. by appending the upload date of the file. But that would mean changing all the wikimedia identifiers, hence redownloading all the wikimedia images (gulp).

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Yan Wong: The problem here may be that the identifier and the image URL have not changed. When an image has the exact same identifier and exact same URL, our harvester assumes that we already have that image. It then just looks at the metadata to see what has changed. Is there anything we could do to change the identifier or url for this image on Wikimedia Commons to force an update?

    Any idea why http://eol.org/data_objects/32443423 hasn't been reharvested with the corrected map? I see the harvest ran yesterday, so I would have thought it should have gone through.

    @Yan Wong: Hm, appears to be a problem with the Catalogue of Life China hierarchy. We'll look into it.

    Not sure the best collection to flag this up, but there's something odd going on with virus names, e.g. HIV-1 is listed as "nodificiency virus 1", and lots of others are missing the first few letters of the name (e.g. "Ectious anemia virus"). See http://eol.org/pages/33005380/overview
