identifications

Thanks for the kind words foxy! I see you've added a third identification that repeats the previous one - this doesn't cause any problems, but it's not really how we intended the identification section to be used (so we're clearly not explaining it well enough!). If you agree with a suggested identification you can click on the "I agree" button, and our intention was that you should only add a further identification if you disagree with the ones suggested.

I've added some guidance about it in the Help section:
http://www.ispot.org.uk/help-etiquette

As I said, having the ID repeated doesn't cause any problems, and I'm not complaining about it, but hopefully the above link will help explain what we had in mind for the site. Let me know if it doesn't help!
