Nice post Pamela! I should let you know that there are some rudimentary checks in place in Spider WebWatch that attempt to prevent submissions on the same spider. They aren't perfect but they're the best I could dream up. For instance, you cannot submit a second observation of the same species within a certain window of time and within a certain geographic range. Of course one could fudge their way around that, so these are meant to be more like gentle reminders. Keep 'em coming!
