Yes it is necessary. This forum is specifically for iBird Photo Sleuth. The forum is built into the app, but loosely right now. If the forum in the app ends up getting traction (more popular) we will more tightly integrate and automate it. The only reason there is a duplicate post is because I wasn't hearing from the main forum experts and wanted them to dive in. Now that thats accomplished I will delete the post in the BIRDING group, as its just a jump to get here.
