Anyone else a little bothered by the requirement that bird names match the Nats list exactly? I know graders have lives too and can't go through them all manually but can't the coding be changed to not be case- or hyphen- sensitive?

I'm willing to just deal with it for BEARSO but having this for the whole season would be really painful.

The team may be gone, but the program lives on...

I agree, I think sensitivity to that level is a little extreme. I hope it can be adjusted for the future, and BEARSO can hopefully be a good representation of how it needs to be changed. If most teams have no issue with submitting exact names, than the issue should not be prioritized, but if it's a major issue, obviously the issue will be of much higher priority.

I could also understand how a gray area could mess with the dev's ability to fix this. As in, should you count "American Golden Plober"? Is that a typo or legitimate error? "Ruby Throated Hummingbird" vs "Ruby-Throated Hummingbird"?

I hope this can be adjusted in some way, though. Nevertheless, I believe that the developer behind Scilympiad has a lot of work on his plate, and I can understand that there are probably a lot of things he is working on when developing a full-scale testing site. I hope it can be fixed, but no rush.

Also, good luck to everyone competing tomorrow! :D

Lowest scores I've heard of were about 200, but the higher scores I've seen have been around 1500 region
