Switching to the new project model

I just wanted to let everyone know that I intend to switch to the collection project model beginning next week. I've gone back and forth about it, but I think switching to the new model will make things a lot easier with only one minor downside. There will also be ever so slightly less control over the observations within the project (e.g., if an observation is labeled as Euphorbiaceae, but is clearly a Euphorbia and was added before, I cannot leave that observation on). I think the downside is outweighed by the ease of quality control and the more informative format. Instead of having to remove observations from the project that do not fit the rules, these are automatically removed.
