    Dear Slacksuz - thank you for all of the content you've recently added to EOL. I'd like to recommend you use your name on EOL, as this will allow other researchers and content consumers to associate your work with you, which may prove useful in your later research career. Please send a message to our helpdesk if you'd like to do this. Thanks.

    @whiskybottle: Hi there - I will add this common name, but if you'd like to do more of that sort of work (adding common names to taxon pages) please amend your profile to your actual name and request curatorial status. Cheers!

    @José R Ferrer-Paris: Sorry, I missed your reply. Adding species to Wikipedia will work to get them added to EOL. The only problem right now is that Wikipedia imports are on hold. When they start up again, hopefully soon, your species should become available on EOL.

    @Thomas Horn: The Wikipedia import is on hold at the moment. I'm not sure when it will resume. We are working on a new way of harvesting Wikipedia that will cover all languages and will result in better taxon coverage. So far we've only harvested the English version, and we are only harvesting family level and below. The work list is not currently filtered by language. There will be better language filters in the new version of EOL that's currently under development.

    @Thomas Horn: Hi Thomas, a member of the staff will reply to your question - we've got folks on the road right now so there's a bit of a delay. Thanks.

    Thomas Horn commented on "EOL Curators":

    How can I make sure, that Wikipedia articles are found by EOL and subsequently are available in the curator working list? I input German common names of taxa but Wikipedia articles seem not to be recognized (after two weeks). Furthermore the working list does not appear to be filtered by language since English Wikipedia articles are in the "German" list. Thanks!

    José R Ferrer-Paris commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Katja Schulz: The problem is that some endemic andean butterflies do not show in any of the taxonomies of EOL (for example Diaphanos huberi, Steromapedaliodes sanchezi, and the new species of Redonda). I already have wikipedia entries for some species, for example for Redonda chiquinquirana there are entries in the english (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redonda_chiquinquirana) and spanish wikipedia (https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redonda_chiquinquirana) and on wikispecies (https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Redonda_chiquinquirana). Will they get automatically included when the wikipedia content gets harvested again?

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @José R Ferrer-Paris: The best way to add a new species to EOL is to upload content for them. Usually, uploading an image to Flickr or adding a Wikipedia articles about the species will do the trick. However, at the moment, the updating of large resources like Flickr and Wikipedia is on hiatus due to some much needed rebuilding of our harvesting code. So it would take a while for the species to get to EOL that way. If you could produce a small resource about the species based on your paper, we could use that to add the species quickly. Do you have images or text that you could upload to EOL for each of the species you want to add to the taxonomy?

    José R Ferrer-Paris commented on "EOL Curators":

    What is the best way to add a new species to EOL? last year we published descriptions of several butterfly species in the genus Redonda (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Satyrinae), how can I add information about them if they do not appear in the EOL taxonomies?

    The latest IUCN redlist came out almost a year ago. This article is out of date. IUCN trend: UNKNOWN. Not decreasing. Data much more than last round in 2008. Population estimate is now 22k-31k.

    @Mark Westneat: We are working on some back-end stuff, and harvesting is one of them. I'll ask Katja to have a look at this specific issue.
