question about articles

I have been developing a series of articles regarding the identification of common skippers. Since these are so commonly unidentified or misidentified, I though that articles regarding behavior, my observations, along with the usual field marks would be helpful. Is this something that, once it is written, could be put under the "articles" section of these BugGuide forums?

Thanks and any suggestions would be helpful!

Absolutely, and you can work on it right in the
Articles Forum. Write it somewhere else and cut and paste it there, or simply write it right there. Edit it there as you work and add thumbnails of images from the guide to illustrate your comments. As originator of the forum article, you have complete control and editorial ability. You can work on it a little every day until it looks the way you want. We're hoping that in BugGuide 2.0 these articles will be organized under an FAQ type tab right up there with Frass and Forums.

ok great!
Thanks, I would really love to see the under-appreciated skippers getting more attention.

Thanks for moving all of those skippers!
