Deleting an identification removes the reviewed tag, even if another identification was added

Please fill out the following sections to the best of your ability, it will help us investigate bugs if we have this information at the outset. Screenshots are especially helpful, so please provide those if you can.

Platform (Android, iOS, Website): Website

App version number, if a mobile app issue (shown under Settings or About):

Browser, if a website issue (Firefox, Chrome, etc) : Chrome

URLs (aka web addresses) of any relevant observations or pages:

Screenshots of what you are seeing (instructions for taking a screenshot on computers and mobile devices:

Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):

Step 1: Agree with an identification. In my case, it was a Family Portunidae

Step 2: Realize you meant to put in a species so add a new identification. In my case Callinectes sapidus

Step 3: At this point the “reviewed” flag is set in the front end

Step 4: Get embarrassed that you agreed to the wrong thing and click “Edit” on the Family-level ID

Step 5: On the new page that opens up, select “Delete” so that nobody knows your shame.

Step 6: Go back to the identification page and reload (or hit show more unreviewed)

Step 7: Notice that the observation you had deleted the interim identification shows up, with the “reviewed” flag turned off

Expected: That the observation will keep my “reviewed” tag since I did have another (active) ID for that observation

This was previously reported, so I’m going to close this thread to focus on the existing report.
