Is there a running place to post news articles? I see one for iNat in Scientific papers, but seems like it would be cool to have a list of news about iNat.
Here’s one from the US

Heh, well, there’s our Press page, which is not updated too often, although site curators can edit it if they want. IMO for the forum it’s best to have a separate thread for an article, to keep the discussion oriented on one thing. And then maybe there could be a wiki topic for iNat in the press, similar to the one(s) for scientific publications.
