Great Advice for New Users from Carrie Seltzer

My advice to new users:
-Look for other users in your area. Comment on their observations, favorite the cool ones, and add IDs.
-Help other users! Add and confirm identifications for species you are familiar with. There are always plenty of observations that don't have any id at all and in that case even adding "plant" or "insect" is helpful.
-This is a social network, so the more you interact with other users, the more likely other users are to interact with your observations.
-Don't be so afraid of being wrong. We all make ID mistakes sometimes. That's part of learning. (I'm looking at you, professional biologists who are especially self-conscious because of your credentials.)
-Join relevant projects and add your observations to them. I'm always trying to get more people involved in AfriBats!
-You get out what you put in.
