"iSpot Launch Celebratory Observations" will commence at 15h00 and continue to 24h00. Any observations outside of this period will be untagged. All observations with the tag will be displayed at the launch, commencing at 17h30.
You are requested to please stop posting at 18h45. iSpot will be launched with a special observation, and you are welcome to refresh your webpage until it is posted at just before 19h00. Thereafter, it would be superb if you could agree to the identification (only if you recognize the species) and thereafter continue submitting observations. Further celebratory observations will be aired until the launch dinner is over at about 20h00.
The idea is to obtain a cross-section of celebratory observations and users as a permanent record of the event, and that can perhaps be revisited and perhaps repeated at special anniversaries.
Please join us in the launch of iSpot. (from the iSpot Southern Africa launch announcment)
