wiki-schmo here too. But, I still like the concept of free - for - all information.
I hate articles that show up in Google and then you have to pay in order to read them! Information should be free for anyone willing to do the research.

Same for me. Could be a bandwidth issue.

Default Online Encyclopedia of Life reaches 150,000 species

Online Encyclopedia of Life reaches 150,000 species

Online Encyclopedia of Life reaches 150,000 species | Ethiopian News
excerpt from above:
Quote:
The public and scientists have helped create the first 150,000 species pages in the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL), the global online project to create a page for each of the 1.8 million known species on the planet.
It may be less than one tenth of the way there, but the response of people who have uploaded more than 30,000 images and videos, has been huge say EOL, especially since new tools have been installed to make it easier to add to the site.

It isn't only experts who can contribute to the site. People with an interest in nature but no special scientific training, known as citizen scientists, can add information. For example, images can be uploaded through the EOL's Flickr page.
