As a means of helping others learn the characteristics to distinguish between various species and a way to speed up identifications, I was wondering if a system that could be implemented that gave identifiers who have corrected many identifications over some period of time to be given a prompt to describe what features distinguish certain species from one another and be added to the species page or be suggested to observers that have been corrected as a potential reason why someone disagrees with their ID. I’m not entirely sure how the system would work, but I think it would be an amazing opportunity to capitalize on the expertise at iNaturalist and potentially help identifiers more smoothly through observations without potentially having to explain so much. This would also tell the observers directly what the key characteristics are that they need to photograph and/or pay attention to in order to get a proper ID. Just had a thought and I’d be really interested in working through the ideas of under what conditions the prompt would show up if others are interested.
If such a feature were implemented, you could even have this as a forum-like discussion among top identifiers in order to hone the characteristics and conditions.
