    @Nick Durmuller: That is a great idea. We are writing requirements right now for the next generation of EOL, and it is known that the preponderance of English, paired with our current display methods are a problem. I will document the Pubmed example.

    Thanks, Nick; it looks like what you have there is a single link post. I suspect it is showing in the worklist for both species because of a spurious synonym issue. Sorry, I had to fiddle with it a bit to figure it out, but it should be one consistent post now, pointing to the correct link for Lactarius deterrimus: http://eol.org/data_objects/33093535 A point to note: if you label the object as Language=Deutsch, it will only be visible to visitors browsing EOL in German. (See the language menu in the upper left corner of any page, then visit http://eol.org/pages/1016697/resources/news_and_event_links). At this point I believe most visitors browse the site in English because most of our content is in English. Its a bit of a chicken and egg problem, but your objects may be more visible if you set Language=English. You could mention in the title or description of the link that the text is in German, but the pages being so image rich, I think they would be useful to speakers of any language...

    @Nick Durmuller: I'm sorry for the delay, Nick. This may be an author tools issue that is currently being documented for repair. You may want to give us a couple of weeks. Can you give me a url for either of your star-crossed link posts? I can't seem to find them in your activity feed. Thanks!

    I performed an administrator delete on your duplicate, Nick. Sorry you can't do it yourself. The object will no longer appear in searches or on the taxon page. We're actually revisiting that feature and it will likely delete objects more thoroughly in our next release. User feedback is always welcome- your thoughts on author access to delete are appreciated. Synonym nightmares- yes, they do have us outnumbered, don't they?

    Jennifer Hammock commented on an older version of 123pilze.de:

    Hey, Nick; you want to remove it from the Agaricus benesii page? Oh, possibly it needs to go to A squamulifer? You can add it to that page using the add new association link, and I can hide it on A. benesii, if that's what is needed. Let me know :) I'll wait for your instructions; the synonym situation seems complicated.

    @Megan Wannarka: Sounds like you may also want to post this as a structured dataset. Hang on, I'll send you some details...

    Jennifer Hammock commented on "Apis mellifera plants":

    This is a really interesting collection, Megan! Looking forward to seeing the honey/pollen/propolis groupings. Some custom outreach materials you could make from your collections are available at EOL Education (education.eol.org/) and in a nice free mobile app by a third party developer (itunes.apple.com/us/app/name-it/id592726254 or play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nameit.ui) What other ambitions do you have for this information?

    Jennifer Hammock commented on "Introduced Ants":

    That's a good idea. Community members should be able to annotate the species in the collection using the edit link. That may be a good place to record and discuss introduced ranges of each. If anyone can point me to a good literature reference or published dataset of introduced ranges for invasive ants, we could get that published in EOL's TraitBank search

    Jennifer Hammock commented on "Tichomir Dunlop":

    A shame about the critter! It can be worth recording these incidents, so people are aware of where wildlife is present and may be impacted by traffic and other human activities. If you can get a photo of the remains, the observation could go on http://www.inaturalist.org/. Please practice safe internetting when putting geolocated things online, though. Get the cooperation of a parent or teacher if appropriate.

    You've been busy! Thanks :) For cases of incorrect ID, like http://eol.org/data_objects/31937595, check out the "add new association" link on the right. That allows you to "associate" a new taxon name (any rank) to the image so it will display on the correct page. Let me know if the tool gives you any trouble. Thanks again!
