Sometimes I like to use the app to browse what is currently being seen nearby. The default sort order appears to use the date added and not the date observed. I didn’t see any way to change it, only the option to filter results for specific dates selected on the calendar.
how often do you encounter recently added things that were not recently observed? I feel like this is rather rare in my area, but maybe it isn’t the same elsewhere.
Quite often… when users add many years worth of older observations all at once or in chunks over time. Also some existing power users spread out adding observations until they have time, or wait until after they’ve identified the species themselves. Probably much more common in people that are not using the app to submit observations.
