Please add information as you come across it!
Remember to check for an existing record before creating a new one!
Remember to include a date in (MO/DAY/YR) on all added notes.
Please try to complete an entry as much as possible! If you aren't sure, leave BLANK or write UNAVAILABLE.
If you've had a BAD experience with a source, note it in the "OTHER" column.
If a source receives more than 2 negative notes, it will be REDLINED by an admin & should approached with caution.
DO NOT tweak the settings, the admin will do that for you :)
NOTE: If you've personally made contact with an interview source and were given their email personally, DO NOT POST IT. This should contain PUBLIC information, ONLY!
