It was brought to my attention that there was a photo of a daylily in the database that did not match the other ones, and the person questioned which one was, in fact, the correct flower. The person knew I had grown the plant at one time, and called me. He was thinking of buying the plant, and was confused by the different photos. I looked it up in our database, and since I was familiar with the flower, made a comment that it did not look like the flower I had seen at the hybridizers, and that a different photo looked spot on (or something to that effect). The person who contacted me called this morning, and I looked it up again, and the photo and comment were removed.

Since a lot of the daylily photos were pulled from the websites of gardens, sellers etc, and not just hybridizers, there are bound to be wrong plants posted now and then, as the person posting the photos may not have grown - or even seen - the flower that they are posting the image of.

Do we have anything in effect to be sure the photos posted seem to match the other photos?

When we see a photo that looks like the wrong flower, what is the proper procedure? I don't think it would be a database proposal... Shrug!

These things go through the moderator, and for daylilies that is Calif_Sue. I'd like her to weigh in on this, but in my mind if you are convinced that the photo is wrong then you should propose to move it to the right place.

If you know it's wrong but you don't know what it belongs to, then move it to the main daylily entry.

Maybe I didn't look far enough. I know there is a data proposal, did not know there is a photo move proposal.

I hate to keep bugging Sue. That is why I asked what the correct action would be.

Yes, there's a photo move proposal system and it's easy for everyone. As for Sue, those proposals are something that she just has to click a button to approve them, so quite easy.

To move an image, open the image up full size and at the bottom you'll see all the options.

Ah! Thanks, Dave! That is easier than tree mailing each time.

Yep, that's the easiest way!
I often get quite a few images in the pending queue at once and don't always click the actual entry to see if there are any existing images. I have caught a few that were wrong just because I have seen the bloom before or am familiar with it but I also know I have to rely on other members to inform me if there is a discrepancy.
