I’ve been contacting many iNat users asking them if they’d consider changing a license on an individual observation so as to enable reusing its photos on Wikipedia. So far, a few people responded positively, asking me how to do it, and I pointed them to the Edit License menu on the top right of the observation page. All of them came back to me saying they had successfully changed the license, but frustratingly the original license still showed up. I tried today changing the license on one of my own observations from CC0 (my default) to CC BY and CC BY SA and found out that the Edit License screen simply doesn’t work. After saving my preference, the license is unchanged. I think this is a bug not a delay in the propagation of the change, because the problem is still there 24 hours after these users attempted to make a change.
