Just Adding Scientific Name

I think that we should follow the good example set by Chris and give the poster a chance to add the scientific name for themselves?

Example

I normally do. If I do add the scientific name, I always agree with the common name given as well.

fredthered has also made plenty of posts and knows the system. If it is a new poster, I always suggest they add the scientific name. In fact, I think I was doing that before Chris joined iSpot! ;)

Re-example

Ian

I jumped in at the wrong time and against the wrong person. My interjection followed a number "adding scientific name" posts on folk that were very new. Some had just joined that day.

I'm afraid that I saw red and lashed out. To steal IDs from a newcomer is just mean and small minded.

Your answer marks you out as the gentleman you undoubtedly are.

Again sorry.

Thanks

Thanks, Bill. I totally agree with you about the etiquette, of course. iSpot is a friendly place and most of us try to do the right thing...you are right to stick up for that.
