Ahhh… I understand that now. I still don’t see why many identifications is a bad thing, but I concur that agreeing to an observation with many IDs is not very useful.
Agreed, agreed! Even wrong IDs can help lead the way to correct ones.
Wow … interesting. I feel like kids and others who might mis-use iNat like this would be doing gaming or some introvert-type thing. Now, maybe I just don’t see them. I have agreeing-IDs off in my notifications :-)
Curators should give those people a warning. But making their agreeing identifications ‘less valuable’ on some scale wouldn’t stop any troll. You’d have to make an iSpot-like reputation system, which the staff have already expressed their distaste for (and frankly, I would not like to see that implemented either).
