If you are concerned about handing out your notes to any idiot who knows how to three-hole punch paper and put it in a binder, why not just request that your notes not be uploaded publicly at the end of SSSS?

Just because they arent public doesn't mean someone else won't just take them, read them, and then print them for a friend or even themselves to spare themselves the countless hours of work, this is besides my main point though. If you want more people to participate in SSSS and not just have 95% tests, be more lenient on notes, they are significantly harder to make than tests.

I don't know if you've ever done an event like entomology or invasives, but to read, annotate, and comprehend a list of 100 species takes an incredible amount of time.

Hi, thank you for accepting my submission! You may already be aware but there are a couple of repeated links in the Division C Tests, and there's a link for an IAT test answer key in the Division C Notes. Other than that SSSS looks great! :D

Yeah, I know about that. I sometimes make mistakes misreading what I'm uploading >.<. I think robotman tends to be busy, he would need to remove it whenever I did it, and most people seem to not complain much/figure it out. forever wants to switch to dropbox or something next year to make it easier to handle, which should help greatly. Thanks for pointing it out.

The NY invasives list has been the same for the past two years so I just used that!

To anyone with the draft list, did it change much? All of the ones I found online ere pretty much the same.

This is invasive species I assume? I don't have the list, but I ask the same to anyone who does.
