I would like to have the option for users to comment on species pages and in particular on tabs 'overview' and/or 'descriptions' (same request as http://support.scratchpads.eu/issues/3086).

I have found a Scratchpad site (http://diptera.myspecies.info/taxonomy/term/2285/descriptions) with this functionality activated, then it seems possible but I really don't understand how to do!!!
I think I have properly changed all 'Comment settings' as 'open' and I created newly content to be sure it was not a problem of default settings altering only newly created content (as you explained to me in http://support.scratchpads.eu/issues/4430#change-15826).

Our project of tree 'morpho-species' standardisation will involve various research teams from Amazonian countries and it is crucial that users could post comments visible at species description level.
Thanks a lot for your help!

I add that this morning (Friday, February 5) the 'add new comment' box mysteriously appeared to the bottom of species descriptions tab but ONLY in 'Log out' mode. If I let a post the 'add new comment' box then also appeared in 'Log in' mode but ONLY for the species for which I previously let a post in 'Log out' mode.
And this afternoon the 'add new comment' box mysteriously disappeared again(!), both in 'Log in' or 'Log out' mode.

That's a pity because Scratchpad interactive functionalities could be used as an innovative tool for sharing about biodiversity and more specifically about botanical identification.

Best regards,
Julien Engel
