I just wanted to give a shout out to all of our amazing database administrators with a huge Thank You! for all that you do in keeping our plant database as accurate as possible.

I enjoy browsing the database and reading about so many different types of plants and I'm amazed at the growth of the NGA plant database over the past few years. With what seems like constant changes in the plant world, I can only imagine the amount of research involved in trying to keep on top of the information to make sure it's up to date. Because of your constant hard work and effort, the NGA Plant Database is a huge asset for all of us here on garden.org, as well as for the world wide gardening community!

I appreciate your patience when we make data errors because I know that it adds to your workload and I know it must be frustrating for you to have to decline data submissions and notify us about the errors. I thank each and every one of you for all that you do; please know that your hard work is very much appreciated! Thumbs up

Yes, Thank You! for all your hard work behind the scenes. That level of detail and attention makes the database work so well for everyone, both users and contributors. I would like to express particular thanks to you for your patience in dealing with sometimes cantankerous gardeners Smiling and your continuous efforts to keep up to date with all the name changes as they roll through.

Not for nothing, Lin deserves a pat on the back as well for sleuthing out all sorts of errors and discrepancies in this forum.

@Baja_Costero LOL, I'm one known for making errors when submitting data.

... just ask @zuzu. I was probably a thorn in her side, especially yesterday! Rolling on the floor laughing

Not a thorn at all, Lin. You're always so gracious when you accept my corrections and reminders, and that's greatly appreciated.

I agree, Baja, that Lin is a super sleuth, and I thank you and Lin for the compliments.

Thankyou for the kind words Smiling

Let me also take the opportunity to thank Lin and others like her who put in a lot of effort to add to the database and try to provide as much information (and as many sources) as possible to make our jobs easier. It is much appreciated!
