here’s a practical case:
I mostly identify Indo-Pacific corals on here. There are currently 369 observations of stony corals (Scleractinia) that I have given an identification for, but which are now stuck at order-level. Now, not all of these can be identified further, but a majority of these cases can. They’re stuck because the original user couldn’t be bothered to pay attention to the observation and actively engage in the “community” ID process. Here’s one. Here’s another. And Another. I could go on another ~300 times… just for this one group.
This is a legitimate problem. There is a lot of good data that’s stuck like this, and there’s a very small number of users willing to go looking for these. Are you more concerned with ridiculous examples like the one you’ve conjured up, or this very real issue that is currently effecting countless thousands of observations? This will only continue to get worse. If iNaturalist is still in existence a decade or three from now, how many of the current users will still be active? I should be spending my limited time on here applying my expertise to improving identifications, not frantically tagging other users in the hopes of correcting obvious errors, often to no avail.
