Thanks for a great year on iNat

I've had a great year on iNaturalist, and hope you did too! here's a blog post I wrote with some stats: www.naturefold.wordpress.com/2019/12/30/inaturalist-year-in-review-2019
Thanks to everyone who's helped identify my more than 15000 observations this year, especially:
· @borisb for identifying my Beetle observations and teaching me so much about them,
· @jurga_li for patiently identifying my Lichen observations,
· @rolftheobo and @epsilon for helping with my German plants,
· @veszt and @georgeg for identifying lots of Mosses,
· @rombrand @irmi and @else for helping with lots of my fungus observations,
· @pdubois and @bbinsecte for correcting lots of Harvestman mistakes,
· @lupoli_roland for identifying my true bugs.,
and 850 more...
You've all encouraged and helped me so much in 2019, and I'm curious to see what next year brings.
-Alexis

1000 Species!

yesterday I finished posting my observations from my recent visit to Nova Scotia, and when I finished posting my species total for 2019 was 999! I had been hoping to reach 1000 species before we left there, but that was pretty close. This morning when I first checked iNaturalist, I saw that someone had identified one of my observations to species level. I checked if I had observed that species before, and I hadn't. That brought my total up to 1000 -- Yay!!! I'm curious to see how many I'll find before the end of the year.
Here is a set of search filters that shows how many species I have whenever you are reading this: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?d1=2019-01-01&hrank=species&place_id=any&subview=grid&user_id=alexis_orion&verifiable=any&view=species
Here is the observation that got identified which brought me to 1000: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/29254382

Thanks for a Great first year on iNat!

Hi everyone!
One year ago last Saturday I joined iNat, and I have had a great first year. I would like to thank all of you who have helped out, guided, and encouraged me, and thanks to everyone for making iNat such a great place to be! I have learned so much on here, and it is always fun to pass on some of what I learn through identifying. I'm glad I found iNat, and I hope it will last for years to come.

500 species in 2019

5 months ago, I resolved to try and photograph 1000 species in 2019 (https://www.inaturalist.org/journal/alexis_orion/20550-2019-inat-goals)
I just noticed that I observed my 500th species yesterday!
we are going to Canada this summer, so I'm hoping that I might manage 1000 after all :)

Mosses

I make a lot of observations of mosses, but I don't know much yet about identifying them. A lot of these I just ID as "Mosses" because I don't want to make too many false IDs. The problem with that is that many of these stay unidentified (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=any&subview=grid&taxon_id=311249&user_id=alexis_orion&verifiable=any), and most of the ones that I have identified to species are just guesses. I would highly appreciate any help in identifying my moss observations (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identify?user_id=999066&taxon_id=311249), and especially those that are still only identified to phylum (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identify?user_id=999066&taxon_id=311249&lrank=phylum&hrank=phylum)
Many thanks in advance,
Alexis
