There seems to be an increasing number of times that taxa are being added multiple times despite already existing on iNat under the same name. For example, Albizia julibrissin has been added 10+ times (https://www.inaturalist.org/taxon_names/76104/edit). This wastes curator and user time, and raises several questions:
- is it possible to find out which users are doing this, so they could be contacted to explain that it already exists?
- is it possible to prevent existing taxa being re-added? Except by curators?
- what is the recommended action - mark as inactive, merge or delete?
