Screenshots of what you are seeing:
Screenshot 1: Image showing the ‘My Observations’ screen from the Android app.
Screenshot 2: Image showing an ‘Observation’, specifically the ‘Information’ tab, designated ‘Coprosma crassifolia’ but which has ‘No Media’
Screenshot 3: Image showing an ‘Observation’, specifically the ‘Comments’ tab, but which has no comments
Description of problem:
Step 1: go to https://inaturalist.nz/observations/73180862
Step 2: it doesn’t exist anymore
Step 3: ???
I have been having a conversation with a local botanist in one of my observations, learning about how to properly distinguish between small-leaved Coprosma sp.
I used the phone app this morning to check up on this discussion. I opened the app, went to my observations, saw that there were comments on my observation (https://inaturalist.nz/observations/73180862) as per the number 5, with a pink comment banner, so tapped it to view. It didn’t load. I tapped my back button and got to the list of my observations, and noted that the observation looks as appears in Screenshot 1 above (it’s the second observation in the list). Clicking on the observation looks like Screenshot 2, and then clicking the comments tab looks like Screenshot 3.
I have emailed the log files (from several minutes after the bug occurred).
This observation clearly existed in the past, but some glitch seems to have caused it to disappear into the abyss. It still exists on my phone, somewhat, but ???
I’d really like to at least get the latest comment back, rather than asking the person to repeat themself via PM.
