Give me some verbage...

Post by Don Becker » July 2nd, 2010, 1:29 pm

So, I want to put up links to the diversity and activity maps, and I think I may modify them so I can include links to see your individual activity and diversity too... anyways...

Someone give me some professional sounding verbage to basically say These maps are based on records entered by our members, and may not reflect the actual range or diversity of the animals

Hows this?

These maps are based on records entered by our members, and may not reflect the actual range or diversity of the animals

:mrgreen:

Seriously, I think that is fine.

How about..."These maps are based on records entered by our members, and may not reflect the actual range or diversity of the animals, or the actual scientific name. These maps also may not reflect the sobriety level of the member when entering such data, his or her reading capability, comprehension level, or ability to discern fact from fantasy. Other than that, they are what we have...and one of our members even takes pics of non-native turtles in parks, further screwing up the range map..."

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Should there also be something about the entries being reviewed by peers?

Even though our members strive to enter accurate records, these maps may or may not represent actual defined ranges and/or diversity of the vouchered species.

Hmm. That just seems wrong to me.

NAFHA assumes no liability regarding the accuracy of these records, the mental health of it's members, or the taxonomic choices made by the voucheree'?
