What Went By/Feathered Friends

Q. At the coaches meeting it was mentioned that What went by will coordinate will feathered friends to come up with uniform rules across the two events. Feathered friends said that it is fine to bookmark and have highlights in the guide, but not fine to write notes in it. However it seems What went by is not allowing bookmarks or highlights (or marking). Am I misreading the rules or are the two events going to differ on this particular rule?
A. In order to unify Feathered Friends and What Went By, WWB will allow highlighting and tabs in their field guides.
