I would be very sorry to see this idea die because it seems too big a task now. Every now and then I trawl through and collate information about genera or families I am interested in for my own use. I do think information is being effectively lost because there are now enough posts that using the search facility can be quite clunky and time consuming.

Is the important task at the moment to sift out and collate the information? It is the data entry that is the first hurdle because it will be the most time consuming. This could probably be done using a really simple spreadsheet or table initially, and made available on request initially rather than online from the start.

Just a thought - might be impossibly naive though.

Gabor: I don?t mean your Gallery as an example of bad one. To tell you truth I mostly my own experiens which moved me from photografer to zoologist with the conclusion that phografer without zoological knowledge is useless, but zoologist without photografic skils is not bad at all.
Paul: Of course, you are right, the responsibility for Gallery ID is authors. But it is you who dicide which level of responsibility may be done in every case.
In addition 1 - our large society find sooner or later any misID.
In addition 2 - it seems to me that most of easy photografed and easy identified species are in Gallery yet and every next step will be more difficult in future.

Thank you all for your opinions. I need some time to think its overShock

We all need some time to think it over. You had the talent to coerce us to think a little further. Nobody knows what it will be.

Well, it is the future...
