16. I am a representative of the organisation XY. How can I get an entry at the topic “Researching institutions and organisations”?

Because of the technical defaults you have to register and to log in if you want to suggest an entry. Join now. It only takes a few minutes and it´s free. When you have logged in, please post your organisation link at the topic “Add a link”.

Click here to register: ucp.php?mode=register

17. How can I get volunteers or other help for a White-tailed Eagle project?

Please post an entry at the topic “Request for Help & Current Research Projects”.

Use the :help: emoticon at the first place to show the international community at a first glance that help is wanted. Write a headline. Describe your project and what kind of help is wanted. You can add links, videoclips or pictures. If you want to modify your entry later, use the edit button in your posting. Forum members can contact you per pm (private message) button. Add your e-mail adress or other contact details if you want that everybody can contact you. If you need volunteer helpers at the place where you are, don´t forget to mention your town and your country (would be good to add a link to a google map).

Add :sleep: to show if your request for help is not actually at the moment.

19. I became interested in an abstract of a text at the topic “Full Text Documents – Different Languages”. Can I find a translation somewhere?

If a text is also available in English or other languages, you´ll find a note or you´ll see the corresponding flag icon below the link - additional to the original text language flag icon.

If you need a translation, please go to the topic “Request for help”.

Use the :help: emoticon at the first place of your entry to show forum members that their help is wanted. Write a short and meaningful headline: which kind of help is wanted? Put the link (not the complete text) in your posting with the copy/paste function. Ask if somebody can do a translation. Forum members can contact you by using the pm (private message) button.

Ensure that the copyright will be respected! If you want to use a (translated) text for any other than private purposes, you´ll have to ask the author/publisher for permission.

Please add :sleep: to show if your request for help is not actually at the moment.

20. Where can I talk to other people who are interested in this WTE data project?

“Talk about” is the right topic to discuss all WTE project themes, texts and single entries.

22. My posting has been edited. Why?

If a posting contains emoticons, comments, small talk or similar, it probably will be edited.

Please respect that nothing but information shall be added, because it´s the only way to keep the data collection clear and to make sure that the internal forum search function can work.

23. I posted a suggestion at the topic “Add a Link”. What happens now?

If your link/article is a new and a WTE specific one, it will get an index-entry, a number, and, in some cases, keywords. Your forum name will be mentioned: “Link submitted by YX”. Then the information will be added to one of the topics.

24. I posted a link suggestion at “Add a Link”. When will it appear in one of the topics?

If it was new and WTE specific, it will appear in one of the topics after a while.

The forum moderators try to manage this as fast as possible. Nevertheless it may take some days, maybe longer, before the next update can be done, because the whole work at this collection (like all Looduskalender forum work) is done by volunteers in their spare time.

26. Last but not least: Who are Linda and Sulev?

Looduskalender forum members named the female White-tailed Eagle who could be observed via webcam/live stream since 2009 “Linda”. The male eagle is called “Sulev”. The nesting site is located in Western Estonia.

Some articles about the breeding pair 2009/2010 and their offspring can be found at the Looduskalender main pages in Estonian, Russian, English and German. Snapshots, video clips and information about camera based observations are saved in the English speaking White-tailed Eagle camera forum.

ENGLISH

I´m writing to you to inform you about a White-tailed Eagle project which is in the process of being established: a data collection. It contains e.g. links to scientific texts, to different ornithological organisations or eagle clubs and to specific search engines and databases. The aim of the project is to collect knowledge and links and to make this data quickly available online and comfortable for everybody everywhere. The aim is also to promote international “WTE networking”.

The data collection is part of the English speaking forum of the Estonian nature protecting project “Looduskalender”.

If you want to support the WTE database, please forward the links or this e-mail to other people who may be interested. Thank you!

Lieber Herr..., (to a man)

Liebe Frau..., (to a woman)

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, (to an organisation)

ich möchte Sie auf ein eben gestartetes Projekt hinweisen, das Sie interessieren könnte: eine Datensammlung zum Thema Seeadler.
Ziel des Projektes ist es, Informationen und Links zu sammeln und diese Daten online verfügbar zu machen. Außerdem soll, soweit möglich, die internationale „WTE Netzwerkarbeit“ unterstützt werden.

Die Datensammlung gehört zu dem englischsprachigen Forum des estnischen Naturschutzprojektes „Looduskalender“ (Naturkalender).

Kære...

Jeg sender dette for at informere om et projekt vedrørende Havørn (Haliaeetus albicilla), der er under opbygning. En datasamling på internettet, som skal indeholde fx links til videnskabelige artikler, links til forskellige ornitologiske organisationer eller ørneklubber, samt til specifikke søgemaskiner og databaser.

Målet med projektet er at indsamle viden og links for at gøre disse data vedr. Havørne tilgængelige på internettet - hurtigt og nemt for alle, uanset hvor. Målet er også at fremme netværk omkring havørnene på internationalt plan.

Datasamlingen er en del af det engelsksprogede forum i det estiske naturbeskyttelsesprojekt ”Looduskalender” .
Klik her viewforum.php?f=46 (link til datasamlingen) eller for at finde datasamlingen på http://www.looduskalender.ee/en/(link til Looduskalender).

Hvis du ønsker at medvirke til at udbrede kendskabet til dataprojektet, så er du velkommen til at sende ovenstående links eller denne e-mail til andre, som måtte være interesseret.
Tak fordi du tog dig tid til at læse dette!

Med venlig hilsen

Hyvä ...

Kirjoitan kertoakseni projektista, jonka tarkoitus on kerätä yhteen merikotkia koskevaa tietoutta, ns. Merikotkatietopankista.

Merikotkatietopankki sisältää mm. linkkejä merikotkia käsitteleviin tieteellisiin artikkeleihin sekä lintutieteellisten ja erityisesti kotkayhdistysten yhteystietoja ja erilaisten hakukoneiden ja tietokantojen osoitteita. Pankin tarkoitus kerätä yhteen paikkaan merikotkia koskevaa tietoa sekä antaa linkkejä netin muihin tietolähteisiin, jotta kuka tahansa voi helposti ja mukavasti löytää tietoa merikotkista. Lisäksi tarkoitus on edistää merikotkista kiinnostuneiden kansainvälistä verkostoitumista.

Projekti on osa virolaista englanninkielistä luonnonsuojeluun tähtäävää "Looduskalender"-nettifoorumia (suomeksi "Luontokalenteri").

Osoite Merikotkatietopankkiin: viewforum.php?f=46
