It's December and we're holding a fun activity that will have you exploring the forums, finding photos that have been posted, and associating those photos with plants in the database. Open to find out more!

I just went through the hot peppers thread and @cycajungle has some fantastic photo's but the actual plant isn't in the database yet. I'm not comfortable requesting someone else's photo's be added as a new plant. How should we handle this?

Propose the addition of the new plant first. If it's a legitimate name, the proposal will be approved, and then you can add the photo or photos to the entry.

next question...

does "propose this image for the database" or something like that...work the same as the association thing? I can't tell you the number of times I've seen beautiful photo's with names but have never clicked on that *Blush* If it doesn't work the same, then I'm hoping @dave will keep this option forever. It sure is easy to add photo's to the database. Doesn't have to be the contest, just getting the photo's in.

I'll make a note to go back to the hot peppers in the new year. Thumbs up Not sure I'll have time right now.

Yes, the process has always worked like this, but it once used the term "import" instead of "associate."
