Just one quick comment about the collect/uncollect links:

There's another slightly different case, when the user comes directly from
My Collection: he arrives to the artifact view when he clicks on a collected

In this case, the button at the artifact view initially displays
"Uncollect", so the behavior may be like this one:

1. User is at the artifact view
2. User taps "Uncollect"
3. "Uncollect" turns into "Collect" and a fading status note appears with
the missage "This artifact has been removed from your personal collection".
I think in this case is important to display this note, because the user may
have clicked on the "Uncollect" button accidentaly.
