I observed a difference between the count-number of species i already discovered. On the main “Obeservation-Site” it says i have 88 species observed, in my profil only 59 species are oberved and if i click on species 77 species are observed. See screenshots:
Could someone explain this issue to me ?
Welcome to the forum! I have the same problem. I don’t know why though.
‘Species’ means different things on different pages. It can be very confusing.
Somewhere there is a thread that explains (or at least attempts to) it all, but it is hard to find as searching on the term species gives many results.
Perhaps one of the
@forum_moderators who have better knowledge of all the topics can find and link to it .
I guess there are a few forum threads that mention it, but I think I would start the information on
part of the problem might be related to the temporary freeze on life list updates (unless they’ve lifted the freeze early?):
Life Lists will not be updated
Every iNaturalist account has a Life List that is updated asynchronously as your observations change (with variable speed). We’re also aware the Life List updating isn’t perfect and doesn’t do a good job of cleaning up older data as observations are removed or taxa change. This approach has not been scalable as iNaturalist grows, so we’ve been working on a new Life List feature. Stay tuned for more on that. In the meantime, we’ll be temporarily suspending the updates to Life Lists as they currently exist.
