We are continuing our furious development pace as we work on the next version of the BAMONA website and underlying database. This enormous endeavor involves thousands of hours of unpaid work. The result will be an entirely responsive version of the BAMONA website, including the sighting submission and review process. We look forward to unveiling the new system and introducing users to new features.
Because two of us handle all of the development work on top of other project duties, communications via email have been slow. Sorry for the inconvenience! We are focusing on getting the system ready for a stable launch, and then we will dig out of emails.
