Hi @JCARLOSARENAS7 😀👋🏼, what a lovely plant! We wanted to get in touch with you as we have noted that some of your plant entries that you are creating are repeats of plants already in the encyclopaedia. We want to avoid duplication as the entries are made public to all users - and of course we all want the encyclopaedia to be as clear and simple as possible. Are there any reasons why you wish to not use the existing record in the encyclopaedia? We are happy to review the records.
@gardentagsplantsteam Hi! How are you? Good morning .... Well I just like to research about plants and share ... and the app as I understand it allows us to offer our perspective of each plant and above all it is very good that in other parts of the world they know what the names are like of plants in our country. For me it is very gratifying to contribute and not only to capture for convenience something that has already been done by someone else ...
@gardentagsplantsteam If the app had its own encyclopedia (not generated by us users) it would be much more comfortable. I hope you can understand me, as I am fascinated by Gardentags ... and be part of this great community.
Thank you for coming back to us 😊👍🏼. It's great that you can help contribute to the encyclopaedia and we are happy to hear you are enjoying the GT community. Although plant records are initially generated by users, each record is ultimately subject to a validation process by our GT plants team where we check what has been input. Amendments are made where deemed appropriate. Duplicate records of the same plant are also removed if found.
We recognise plants can also have many different alternative common names in different parts of the world, and we include those in a dedicated field when we are made aware of them. At this time, however, this alternative name field is not currently visible to end users within the app but you can still search for these alternative names in the search function within your plant lists and the encyclopaedia with success - for example, if you type Queen's Tears it will still give you this plant.
We have incorporated some elements of the new information you kindly provided into the existing record, thank you so much for that 👍🏼. We'd also like to include the Spanish name equivalent 'Aretes De La Reina', but when we look at this in Google it suggests the plant is a Fuchsia instead. Can you reconfirm the correct translation? Going forward, if you'd like to propose any encyclopaedia changes, just tag us on your post linked to the existing plant record and we can then consider these 😀
