2016 Database Contest Results

Post by SurfinHerp » February 15th, 2017, 2:27 pm

I took some time to compile the 2016 Contest Results.

Congrats to Robert and Nicholas Hess! They had another fantastic year of herping and entering records :beer:

Thanks to everyone who contributes to the HERP database! Let's keep up the good work this year.

Jeff

Cheers to Stacy and Debbie for continuing to keep the chapter diversity .......diverse.

Two fine herpers that I've had the pleasure of knowing for over 40 years combined. Which is amazing since they are both so young...... :beer:

Thanks for putting that together Jeff. It's good to recognize those who contribute, and hopefully this will encourage others to add more of their data into this project, which has evolved into a very valuable resource.
Special shouts to James Maughn who has climbed up to the top there with the Robert, Nicholas, and the legendary Brian Hubbs. :beer:

First off, thank you to Jeff for putting in the effort to make this list. Also thank you for the kind words! And big shout out to Elliot for the 10 county records, amazing work :thumb: . But most importantly thanks to everybody who entered and enters in the H.E.R.P database. Over 7,000 records is not as much as past years but is still pretty impressive. I'm trying to get some other people who don't enter yet to enter, and I think everyone else should do the same. If you know someone who you think could make a great contribution to the data base, bug them and get them to enter there finds! With all this rain we're getting this season it should be a fantastic year!
Happy herping, Nicholas

Wow, just saw this...thanks for posting it Jeff. It looks great! And congrats again to Robert Hess for all his good work! :thumb: Oh, and Nicholas too, I'm sure he did something... :lol:

Maybe this year we can get back to the business of entering more data. It seems like all of us have slowed down a little and taken a break. I will try to do better, and to also beat my friends into submission to enter data. I find that hitting them on the head with a heavy book helps... :beer:

With this much-needed rain here in CA, I'm guessing we'll see a lot more herp activity this season than we have in the past years with the horribly dry conditions. For me at least, it will result in more records in the database.

It's good to see that you finally set up your own account, Nicholas.
With two separate accounts, we'll finally get to see who the real herper in the family is! :lol:

Well, actually, we will still be entering data under our combined HERP account (Robert and Nicholas Hess). With 5000+ records and 130 species or thereabouts, to our - really mostly his - name, it would be kinda tough for Nicholas to have to start from scratch again. So, it looks like I will be safe at least for a little while longer. :lol:

I've never knowingly identified a rock. I have been mistaken for one, once in a while.

...and just for that comment, Mr. Hubbs, I condemn you to Moth Identification. Your eyes will bleed. :twisted:
