    @Elza Kala Pap, Since we don't have a page for this hybrid, you won't be able to add an article for it right now. We would first have to get the taxon from one of our content partners. If you create a page for it in the English Wikipedia, we should get it with our Wikipedia harvest. You could also upload your images through Wikimedia Commons.

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Thanks for your feedback, Michael. I have created a ticket for this issue, but it will probably be a while before it can be addressed.

    Can something be done to improve the search result suggestions? At the moment they are, and have been for a very long time, absolutely awful, turning up all the least probable results as the top suggestions, rather than the most probable which usually do not appear at all.

    As an example, I had to type out as far as "chamaecyparis lawson" before the obvious Chamaecyparis lawsoniana appeared in the search suggestions; it did not appear even with "chamaecyparis lawso". The search suggestions were instead completely cluttered with highly improbable suggestions.

    What would help is if accepted names were given higher hit status than non-accepted names, and generic names given higher hit status than species names, so e.g. a seach for 'pinus' will turn up various Pinus spp., higher than Spinus pinus.

    @Anne Thessen: I hid that row in TraitBank. Not sure about the best way to get the correct info in, however. This looks like a FishBase record so maybe report to them?

    I think I see an incorrect data point in TraitBank. http://eol.org/pages/994802/data#data_point_26544190 Looks like it should be 5-6 cm, not 56 cm.

    @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.

    Kento Furui commented on "EOL Curators":

    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.
