Hurray!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I agree. Easy to use, easy to navigate. Especially good is the (new) ability to suggest photos from the forums for the database. I think that's a great feature.

The most time-consuming thing for me is ascertaining that I have the name right- I can easily switch genus + species.

It's fun to see these stats every once in a while, lets us know how hard everyone is working.

I do miss seeing all the newest images, like we had on DG with a PlantFiles forum where we can see all the latest. I used to check that every time, scroll through them until I caught up to where I saw the last ones. Right now I feel I am missing out not seeing them all.

You can also see newest images by opening the database with the "Plants" tab >>> then in "Moderation queues: [ Images | Data proposals | Misc proposals ]" >>>> click "images". It shows recently submitted photos awaiting approval. I look at them often, lots of beautiful photos.

This is now added! Go to the database's front page (where the list of newest images is) and at the bottom of that list, just click on "Continue viewing recent images". The list shows all plant images.

I haven't posted any pics yet because all my pictures are in my old computer or backup. Haven't transferred to my MacBook Pro yet. ... then I'll post.

I do REALLY enjoy watching it grow (hmmmmm ~ GROW!)
