    Hi Jennifer,

    no this is actually one specimen but the images are quite bad. That is something that we uploaded as a test as part of our first PaleoBlitz or digitization workshop in 2016. It is in my personal collection but maybe not worth to remain in the myFossil collection, qualitywise and informationwise. You can not really get any good information of that image.
    While I was checking the specimens I contributed to the myFossil database I saw that some of them have no content. Were they deleted?

    • Hi, Ronny – I think this specimen is fine to remain on the website. It can still be useful to others interested in the taxon or region.

      The blank specimens are likely a result of draft specimens from the previous upload process. We recently migrated all of the data to a more uniform and up to museum standards database. This new system does not allow draft specimens like the other one did. So any specimens that were incomplete or accidentally created are shown as blank in this system as there is no ‘draft’ folder. Unless you are specifically remembering additional specimens you are not seeing that is likely why there are ’empty’ specimens.

      Talk to you soon,
      Jen

  • Hey Jack, good to hear from you and the news are amazing. I have already checked the website of the Cincinnati Museum and was so amazed about the quality of all the work that was done. Thanks for the heads up. My new museum is growing even if it is just present in Virtual Reality at the moment. Since the old house is still opened and functional there is no need for any rush. The political background had to be perfect to instal my ideas. Now everything is ready and prepared for getting serious. That means I will get the building I always wanted in the centre of the city (a cultural melting pot) with outstanding architecture and twice the size as originally anticipated. Yeah, that feels great! Now it will take a bit longer but the results will be much more prominent – a once in a lifetime opportunity needs that well overthought developing process. Whenever to come jumping over to Germany just make sure to join me here in Leipzig.

    All the best

    well first you need to dry the sediments by using a drying oven, that will open up tiny pores and cracks, then use the tensides we (Jack and I) already recommended in a former blog (like Rewoquat). If this isn’t working you will need to work with the good old mechanical methods … btw best greetings to El and Jack

    tiny Meg teeth (around 2 inch) are called Hubbell teeth after Gordon Hubbell a Gainesville local private collector

    Hey El,

     

    just saw the news that you are leaving the project. FOSSIL will loose it’s all connecting element … sad for the project but hey congrats for your new position. I know that you didn’t liked the Florida weather same like I did and now you can enjoy you new “habitat”. Congrats again and thousand wishes from Germany. Best wishes to your husband as well … now you can start growing a family 😉

     

    Best

    • Hi, @rleder! Yes, it’s true, I landed a permanent position with the University of Kansas. I wish that the timing had worked out better for FOSSIL’s benefit, but everyone seems to understand that a permanent position outweighs a term position. I am excited for the new opportunity and I must admit that I’m pretty thrilled to go back to a location with four distinct seasons (they get snow there, yay!). Many thanks for the congratulations! Hope you, Sabrina, and the kids are doing very well – I miss you guys. My husband and I will have to plan a trip to Leipzig after getting settled in Kansas 🙂
      Cheers,
      Eleanor

    • Hi, Ronny. I’m resolving a bug that caused attached images posted to groups to not appear in the groups activity feed. If these images were meant to be posted in a group please let me know and I can fix it.

    yes Alex @alexander-hastings, I got the job. I am the Director General of the Natural History Museum of the City of Leipzig. Yesterday we were celebrating my first 6 months of being in charge, which means that I have successfully passed the period of probation now.  See the picture of me celebrating with the team and flowers in orange and blue, reminescent of UF
