Hi Roger,

I heard that paleodb (http://www.paleodb.org) could motivate hundreds of
paleontologists to provide data but I don't know exactly how the procedure
there is..
I don't know if  helps ... I offered user registration + contributions
without restrictions for TaxonConcept which was not accepted by users, I had
many registrants, but almost nobody did (or could ;)) enter data:

best regards,
