Thank you everyone

Today I would like to thank everyone on iNaturalist. Thank you to the people who add IDs, the people who add observations to iNaturalist, staff and thank you to the mods. Thank you everyone for all you do. You are all very important. Even if you are reading this without an account, thank you. Thank you to all my friends here at iNaturalist. iNaturalist brings great people like you together. We can all connect and learn here. Thank you to the people who added wrong IDs(I did a few times). And one last time: Thank you.

I would like to thank especially everyone who IDs Kingdom Plantae. I have done a lot of identifying on Unknowns, but probably more than 50% of my IDs have been “Plants”, “Vascular Plants”, or “Flowering Plants”. The people who narrow these down to genus and species are doing much more work than me.

I do a lot of plant IDs. I love when people also add the ID for flowering plants because I know very little about the other ones. I can spend more time focusing on IDing to family, species, etc. rather than sifting through everything to find something I may be able to help with.

I thank everyone who knows more about Fungi and other insects. Also, as @lappelbaum, @arboretum_amy, and @fluffyinca have already stated, thank you for all the refined plant IDs. :evergreen_tree: :deciduous_tree: :palm_tree: :cactus:

Also thanks to the amazing people who IDed some of my gull observations to species, especially @jsulzmann and nmrvelj! I can’t get past Larus, so there must be a lot of work going into those identifications.

It’s a bit late, but I would like to thank everyone too. My experience here has been great. I love the community, and tip my hat to anyone involved in setting iNat up, maintaining it, formulating it’s awesome ‘rules’ and to all who contribute ID’s and contribute to this forum (and to those who will join). I’ve met many fine people, albeit electronically, and have learned a huge amount. I find Life, whether human or not, to be very fascinating.
