Refering to the binders? That's 2 inches.
No, the four-inch law for pet turtles. Also has to do with red-eared sliders.
Ha, I still remembered what this was just from the name :P

Hey guys,

I have a general question. When we are asked to write genus, family, class order, phylm etc. Is there a specific way to write the name? I know genus is uppercase 1st letter and underlined. What do I do for family, class, order, phylum?
Thanks

I just capitalize everything.

I have a question for y'all. So in the rules it says you can bring one official list, and in the past 2 or 3 invitationals I've gone to they've said "Okay so before we begin you are allowed to take out your list". But also in the rules it says you can bring any info from any source, so do you guys know if you'd be able to bring two lists but just keep one in the binder as part of your notes? That's what my partner and I did at one invi. and it went well. But now that I think about it I'm not sure if it's allowed...

I honestly don't think it matters that much since essentially anything is fair game to put inside your binder. The "one" list just specifies that you can only have one list outside of your binder rings. I've never had a problem with bringing multiple as long as there was only one distinctly separate from the binder, has anyone had issues with this? Seems kind of nitpicky tbh

Honestly I doubt any proctor will care to look through your binder for 2 lists, unless you annoyed them and they are just being really petty.

That said I wouldn't bring 2 lists into nats. It'd suck to get DQed.

I highly doubt they'd DQ you for bring 2 lists. At most I think, they'd probably just tell you you couldn't keep one of them.

I agree; if you're worried just ask them if they're okay with it when they check your binder.
