When your group members insist on using their "sUpeRior IphOne cAmeRa/MiC" so now you have to spend a few hours editing your pixelated project and adding in subtitles in an futile attempt for the viewers to recognize that the video is in spanish.

I think I just saw a dark-eyed junco in my yard, although with my bad ID skills and even worse eyesight, it could have been any sparrow...

ID'ing in the field always feels so much harder than in a picture

Like, ofc some birds are really easy to identify, but for many birds, they feel so much easier to identify with a still picture

Is it a violation of the spirit of the competition (and grounds for DQ) if you take adderall unnecessarily before an event? asking for a friend

I am slightly concerned... if they have ADHD or another condition that necessitates that, it shouldn't be an issue, but are they taking it to gain an advantage? I personally think that it violates spirit of the competition, but that wouldn't be the only concern...

Why did y'all reduce the amount of time to edit a post to 3 minutes? The rest of the changes seem alright, but 3 minutes seems a little short. I've seen one forum that has a 30 minute limit. If you're gonna limit editing, my unsolicited advice would be to allow editing until someone else posts in the thread. That way, you're not encouraging people to double post if they remember that other sentence that they ment to include... Assuming, of course, that it's not extremely hard to implement such a system.

Edit: Wording modifications.

I was just thinking about how you could get DQed in certain sporting events from doping and stuff like that.
