I try my best. If I'm wrong, please do tell me, but please be polite. Kindness is always key.

I don't expect corroboration or IDs on low quality pictures. In fact, I discourage attempted identifications if the quality is simply too difficult to navigate. If I upload poor quality images it is because I knew what it was when I saw it, or for other reasons. Regardless of the reason, I understand some are too low quality to get a good ID, so telling me won't be necessary. My preferred method in such a situation is to simply mark as reviewed and move on.

If you have questions about an exact location, feel free to ask. I obscure mostly for the hidden time and date, not necessarily the location. Usually, I'll be happy to provide more information if it's requested. Especially for projects. Love me some projects.

I add a lot of taxa but don't necessarily curate it or keep up with it. I just do the input. If there's an error in anything I upload, tell me and I will fix it or delete it. If something needs to be added or curated with the actual taxonomy (relationships, synonyms, etc.), I don't often do those things. If it's not something that's included on the "create a new taxon" page, I usually don't do it. You're most likely better off doing it yourself unless it's something only I can do since I created the taxon. In that case, just let me know. I'm dipping my toes into swaps but am old and go very slow so I probably won't be doing loads of them for a while.

I've traveled a lot in the past, far before iNaturalist was something I knew of. I've been actively going through old pictures to upload onto here but because I didn't know of it at the time, not all the pictures are great. That's why you may see a lot of fluctuation in quality.

I reside with my wife and kids near SLC, UT but I like to be all over the place. I'm a member of the LDS Church.

I can speak a pretty wide variety of languages because I learned a bunch while in my 20s when preparing for my mission (Mormon stuff). Some of them I suck at now. But I can try still if need be. English is what I'm best at, though.

Hot seat. I'm just goofin'.

If you find this, no you didn't. Okay? Okay. Please respect me and my family.
(This is part of my private life. This isn't a secret-project type of secret. It's an actual secret. So sh. Please don't ask or try to talk to me about it unless it's on here. I have no problem socializing on iNaturalist but I insist it stays on iNaturalist. Thank you.)

But if you do happen to stumble upon this on accident, perhaps check out my band, I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME. Or don't.

DW used to do The Brobecks.
Then he did Panic! At The Disco.
Now he does iDKHOW.
The end.
