Projects: Join a project to become a member. Not only does this support the particular scheme organiser but each project shows up on the page of your record. Useful if you've joined both a taxonomic project and a site-based project. Also useful if you've some expertise in a particular group, keep returning to the project to see what's new and what you might raise to ResearchGrade

Curation + Drag and Drop: Keeping track of the images you've posted (wherever) and reducing the effort of uploading an image to just a single drag and drop (no typing) Bulletin 94 (p23)
