Just so everyone knows target species are worth 40 points. There is a large jump in points from the 20 point species to the targets, but this matches with what BAP has been doing for many decades. I don't see any reason to mess with success; while we don't have to keep things exactly like the BAP program it is a good model to follow. The target category should be reserved for those species that take a great deal of time and effort to propagate.
I will post more later; I have to head out of the house now.
