Remarks
Bug images from this gathering should be uploaded like normal but should include "gathering_2013" in the Remarks section or, less obtrusively, in the Identifier line. Note that these will not appear immediately in search results but will eventually as the search function picks them up. See bug images from gathering_2013.

Images of people, places, and non-bugs do not need this tag identifier since they will all be posted directly to this gathering page. (To add a picture of the Gathering, go there and then click "add image".)
