DST, Project Noah rangers have repeatedly requested that you not just duplicate (copy) existing suggestions. We have advised that if you agree with a species that has already been suggested simply click the + sign (under the +1 above) on that suggestion to show your agreement. However you continue to add the duplicates which are not necessary. These may be removed. Thank you for being a responsible member of the Project Noah community.
