#IdentiFriday is the happiest day of the week

Friday, I finished going through St. Kitts and Nevis (inspired by @susanhewitt having mentioned that she had recently added a lot of observations there). That was what triggered my thread about Manchineel.

Counting down to another Friday, already! Penstemon day in, day out, for me. 16,000 uploads so far in 2022, gosh darn that’s a lot of flowers!

I might filter Unknowns for “has sounds” tomorrow.
Sometimes I need that dopamine hit that comes with seeing the number of pages along the bottom of the identify page decrease by an entire digits place.

Maybe find somewhere that is still chewing away at the tougher residue of the City Nature Challenge.

88K obs and just barely over half are Research Grade.

Thanks for checking mine marina.

Can anyone else check them out? Anyone good with bird and frog audio?

Inspired by a YouTube video, I looked at all four pages of Kidlington, UK, because I want to get a real sense of the country. :grinning: There were a few that I moved out of “Vascular Plants.”

I chipped in a couple hundred Penstemon and Cercocarpus in Southern California! It’s just a fraction of the pile, but it’s something :>

If you have pointers for the Cercocarpus that aren’t birchleaf or curlleaf, I’m all ears.

Another Friday is here! I still need help with either Far East observations or Altai ones, thank you everyone for your help 2 weeks ago! There’re birds, plants+fungi, molluscs and insects/spiders/millipeds that need the most attention, if anyone can id fish or crabs, there’re some too.

I worked through a few random things today. I don’t recognize much on your links, sorry.

Since the CNC, new observations are accumulating at roughly 150,000 per day. That’s crazy!

That’s ok! Yeah, would be cool to see statistics at the end of the year and compare % to 2021.

150,000 a day?!? Wow.

OK, I am looking forward to when there are a million identifiers on iNat - but that’s about four times the number we have now!

Another way to look at it
2022, Jan 1 to Jun 9 = 14,977,440 verifiable observations uploaded (93,609 per day)
2021, Jan 1 to Jun 9 = 12,941,387 verifiable observations uploaded (80,884 per day)

Also:
May 29, 2007 to Dec 31, 2018 = 15,009,113 verifiable observations uploaded

It’s great iNat is growing so much, but as an active identifier, I feel a little overwhelmed.

That’s because number of iders is hardly changing compared to observers, I check everything uploaded befor Jan 1 vs current stats: it was 239 137 iders/1 981 197 observers, now it’s 254 583 iders/2 215 145 observers, so for 5 months we got +15 446 iders(+6,5%)/233 948 observers (+11,8%). And how much each of them id/observe?
