Hello again Ciaran,

Thank you for letting me work on that. I moved a few miscellaneous things into the Notes section, but everything that was in the profile is still there, somewhere lol. I just combined the duplicate sources etc. If you ever have others you need help with, just let me know! And thank you for having so many beautiful sources on your profile. Have a fabulous week!
