    Duplicate:
    http://eol.org/pages/5120209/overview (erroneous name)
    http://eol.org/pages/819830/overview (correct name)

    Could they be merged please! (so long since I found a page to merge, I've forgotten how to report them properly!!)

    @Jennifer Hammock: Thanks. A number of them are now unpublished, because they are no longer under a CC license (e.g. http://eol.org/data_objects/13466855, http://eol.org/data_objects/14269275). I guess I should remove these from the collection. Or perhaps someone should post on the flickr stream to ask the author if they really intended to change the license.

    @Jennifer Hammock: I'd like to be able to add stuff there, if that's OK. I'll try to stick to cases where there are no decent trusted images to use as exemplars.

    Jennifer Hammock commented on "EOL Curators":

    How silly of me! We already have a collection of high priority images in need of review. The scope previously was a bit narrow, but I think it's time we broadened it so everyone can play. Curators, if you have a moment, please have a look! There are some beautiful images in there already that could use your attention. Lots of insects, plants and marine invertebrates, also a couple of fish and a few tetrapods. Please comment here or in the collection newsfeed if you'd like access to throw images in there for your colleagues to review.

    @Jennifer Hammock: As someone more official at EoL, do you want to set up a collection of "Great exemplar images that need trusting", and I'll add any I find to it?

    @Yan Wong: I've noticed similar mixed ordering on several pages with some Trusted below some Unreviewed, though never with Unreviewed right at the top like this

    Yan Wong commented on "EOL Curators":

    The media on this page http://eol.org/pages/132695/media are in a weird order, with a load of unreviewed ones first, then the trusted ones after. Is there something up with the system?

    @Jennifer Hammock: Yes, I think any encouragement to get these images trusted would be very helpful

    Jennifer Hammock commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Yan Wong: I select unreviewed images as exemplars regularly. I like to think that the added visibility gets some of them noticed by curators and Trusted, too, but I haven't checked. A collection is a good idea, but I wonder if a "best Unreviewed images on EOL" collection would be more useful than an Untrusted exemplar collection. That way any member could help point out great images in need of Trusting...

    Yan Wong commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Cyndy Parr: I certainly wouldn't trust an image if I wasn't sure of the ID, simply to make it "rise to the top". I wonder if a good use of review time for EoL interns (or whoever) would be to look through all images deliberately set by a curator as an exemplar but which are unreviewed. There can't be that many of them, and I assume they are cases where a suitable reviewed image is poor. It might be useful if there was an automatically generated collection of these.

    Cyndy Parr commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Yan Wong: My opinion is that it is okay, especially for species that will have images that are almost impossible to trust. I'd rather see an exemplar marked as unreviewed, than trusted just to justify it as an exemplar, if that makes sense. Here's an example: http://eol.org/pages/311512/ The 2 trusted images are not very high quality, and an unreviewed image is much better and looks very much like the trusted images.

    Is it OK to pick unreviewed images as exemplars? For example, the only actual picture (rather than drawing) of human fleas is a microscope photo (by an EoL regular, as it happens), but it is not yet trusted: http://eol.org/pages/704391/media

    @Katja Schulz: As KS said, it actually *is* available; it's 1347. It just has a funny name, so you cannot tell. ...But that's really the hierarchy.

    @Yan Wong: oh, and if it helps in the meantime, the current hierarchy id for IRMNG is 1347, so you should be able to get the root taxa like this: http://eol.org/api/hierarchies/1.0/1347.json?cache_ttl=

    @Yan Wong: It looks like this is a bug. IRMNG is supposed to be supported as a hierarchy provider. I'll report it. Hopefully, it will be an easy fix.

    @Bob Corrigan: Here's another example where the image is currently the exemplar, even though the discussion on the page implies a different exemplar was deliberately set: http://eol.org/data_objects/26853984
