I have only been using iNat since June of 2020. I have noticed that there are a lot of unidentified observations. I have also noticed that there are a lot of people who try to ID entries because are bothered that there are so many “unknown” entries. I admit that I have caught that bug a little bit.
One thing that slows down this process of entering suggestions is that there isn’t a good way to go through the list of unknowns and quickly enter an suggestion. If the grid view page for observations would have a suggestion field, it would allow one to easily go through large amounts of entries. Right now, the fastest way to do it is to use the grid view page, right click and open a single observation in a separate browser tab, and then enter a suggested ID.
I am not sure if adding that suggested ID field would slow down the grid page too much. I would like to know if there was a quicker way to go through large amounts of observations for entering an ID.
