    There is a seal in the photo, but no option to tag.

    Hi, @samanthacgrant - Have a look at the FAQs- mark as "Other" without species. 😃

    Quite clear, isn't it? And no mist on the lens. 😃

    and from the penguin expressions, they know a poser when they see one 😃

    This is a good enough example to be granted a Moderator's hashtag:
    #seal

    Equally fine picture of a dead yet un-eaten chick...strange waste of calories! 😦

    I marked a human but it was a great big seal!

    Posted

  • AvastMH by AvastMH moderator

    Oh that's very bad luck VF13! When you see the next seal, use the 'other list' and put a blue circle on it then simply click 'OK' - easy 😄

    We have new FAQs - they only take a few minutes and it'll make the project more rewarding 😃 Nice to see you here again! 😄

    plus a seal lion

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    Yes, @agrinow. Did you know you can read the FAQs and the comments below yours? Sometimes very helpful. 😃

    There is a large seal in the photo, which I have marked it as a human.

    Posted

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    @VF13 - No, only humans are marked as human. Here's a link to our FAQs. Please do read them so you understand and enjoy correct marking. https://talk.penguinwatch.org/#/boards/BPZ0000007

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    The 6th FAQ one you'll need for this. Seals are marked as Other, no species. You can also read comments below yours. Thanks for your help!

  • Madeleine.Stjr by Madeleine.Stjr

    the other animal present is a seal

    Posted

  • AvastMH by AvastMH moderator

    Well done - are you marking them with a blue circle please @Madeleine.Stjr ?

  • gharvey by gharvey

    Seal in the pic--unable to mark as there is no way to classify under "other" unless it is falsely classified as a ship,bird or human

    Posted

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    @gharvey - Read the FAQs to know we ask you to mark unlisted animals, including seals, simply as "Other" - no species selected. Thanks!

    Posted

  • sjhwriter2 by sjhwriter2

    Seal or sea lion in foreground, but no classification for it.

    Posted

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    Please @sjhwriter2 , read the FAQs and comments below yours. Any unlisted animal is marked "Other", (blue mark), then "OK"- no species.

    Posted

  • AvastMH by AvastMH moderator

    Hi Perky_Penguin ! Aha! but in FAQ 6 it tells us to open the 'other list', pop a blue circle on it and simply click 'OK' - job done!! Please

    Posted

  • AvastMH by AvastMH moderator

    do have a quick trip through the FAQs - just takes a few minutes and it'll help you and is very interesting. And 'Welcome to PW' 😃

  • AvastMH by AvastMH moderator

    Perky_Penguin, could you take the hashtag symbol off 'sealions' please? We are drowning in hashtags so searches are not working well 😦 Thx

    Posted

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    A reminder to our Penguin Counters- Please do read the FAQ, recently revised- it's full of help so you're assured you are marking correctly.

    Posted

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    As stated in the FAQ, only moderators are using hashtags. We will remove posts if hashtags are applied. Only two exceptions, explained in FAQ.

    This is the best pic of a sea lion I've seen in PW!

    Posted

  • AvastMH by AvastMH moderator

    I agree suzeroo! It's almost like it knows it's hogging the camera at 'click time' 😄
