I was browsing the database after I saw someone post a photo on a forum and I see there are two listings for this plant:

http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Titanotrichum

Can one of our great Database Administrator's delete the duplicate listing?

Also, I was going to propose to move the photo over but ... will the photographer get the Acorn if I do it, or should I just ask them to upload it to the database? I hate to get credited with acorns for someone else's photos being moved to the database, I'd rather see them get credited for their photo.

Thank you all for your great work!

I'll take care of this, Lin. One of them is misspelled (oldhami and oldhamii). As soon as I find the right spelling, I'll delete the other one.

When you move someone's photo, you and the photo owner both get credit.

Just an extra note: when you propose someone else's photo, they get the full acorn credit just as if they had added it themselves and you get a 1/2 acorn credit. They also get a notification that it was added and by whom. Thumbs up

Thanks Sue ... yep, I knew about the partial credit to me and now I'm glad to hear that the photo's owner gets full acorn credit! Big Grin

Oh, I didn't realize that the photo owner got a full acorn credit! Thanks for mentioning that, Sue!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
