    @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.

    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!

    @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?

    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?

    Yan, the info for the EOL species of the day widget is stored as text with the page in the EOL species of the day collection. We had talked about adding a field for "Tagline" or "Factoid" or something. It is a good idea -- maybe suggest it here: https://github.com/EOL/eol/issues

    Any idea why the average rating for this image http://eol.org/data_objects/13218087/ hasn't been calculated correctly?

    Actually, I see that some of this sort of information must have been collated for the smithsonian "EoL species of the day" widget. It would be nice if they could input these little information snippets into EoL fields, for reuse.

    Can I suggest an addition to the list of "eol subheadings" at http://eol.org/info/writing_eol_chapters - something like "did you know", e.g. this is the largest mushroom in the world (with ref if possible), or "the aardvark has an incredible symbiotic relationship with the world's only known underground cucumber". etc etc. These could be used to produce EoL 'top trumps' cards, e-cards, etc etc. Where's the best place to discuss this?

    Please bear with us on the March of Snails on the homepage. A souvenir of the server migration, the development team is aware and will look into it shortly.

    The march of life photos on the front EOL page seem rather shell-heavy at the moment - too much to be a coincidence, I suspect.
