|If you are in the database and you see a photo that is incorrectly placed, you can propose the image be moved to the right plant.|
But what happens when you know the image is in the wrong plant, but you're not sure what the correct plant is? Well, we now have a bin of unidentified photos, and you can move images from a plant to the bin.
Here's the bin:
The bin of unidentified photos (Holding_space)
To use it, just go to an image, open the image full size and scroll down to the bottom and click on "Move this image to another plant".
Then search for "unidentified" and the bin will come up in the list of plants. Select that and you're on your way.
If you're in the bin and see an image and you know where it belongs, you can move it out of the bin and over to the correct plant using the same "Move this image" technique.
Additionally, if you have a nice photo but aren't sure where it goes, you can upload a new image directly into this area.

|That hosta with the white blooms looks like hosta elegans but I don`t feel "expert enough" to actually put it there. I`ll try it since there is nothing to lose. Do I still get acorn if I`m wrong?|

|LOL Karen ... it looks like Hosta elegans to me too, but I don't know a heck of a lot about hostas! |

True, there might be small details important for ID I`m not aware of since hostas are not a current plant addiction for me.

|How about a page of the most-popular-starred-pages?|
Then we can *star* just that one page, and still find most things.
If you ever decide to create a cluttered page with far too many buttons, "My Stars" and "Thumbs-Ups-Given" and "Watched Blogs" might find a place on that page.
Just because it ISN'T complicated doesn't mean I can't MAKE it complicated!

|I propose a simple "tell us all you know" form for the No IDs including height,bloom size,history,time of bloom and whatever other ideas come along. Karen|

|Great new feature Dave.|

|I already put some No ID pictures of mine in there. I think it is a great feature.|

|Dave, I have lots of not identified plants of Brazil, I know very little of tropical plants, is it better to first put them one by one in the ID forum, or do I just load them all in the bin in the hope one day someone will recognize it?|
Another thing; would it not be handy if the unidentified were grouped by family in the bin, for example, all the Bromeliacaea together etc..

|Myriam, I think using the ID forum as the first choice would be best. The bin isn't intended to be a highly interactive feature. It's just a hole to throw images in when you don't know what they are. The biggest use is to move plants away from other plant entries into this, rather than just deleting the image.|
The forum will remain the best feature for getting actual IDs. I think there's a good idea to setup a whole feature around plant identification but that's for another day

|Thanks Dave, I also think that is the wisest!|
