The agree/disagree numbers also seem to have another problem, I think. Let’s say someone IDs an obs to species level, and a second ID (also at species level) agrees. I then ID to subspecies level within the same species. When I look at that obs on my IDs page, I see that 0 people agree with my ID and 2 disagree. Presumably this is because the system recognizes the entity I have chosen as different from the entity the other IDers have chosen and counts that as disagreement. In reality, it’s obviously not. I’m actually agreeing with their species ID and simply refining it. Nowhere on that obs page does it say I’m disagreeing. And the other IDers are not actually disagreeing with my ID either.
If a further IDer agrees with my subspecies ID, and the obs becomes RG at subspecies level, I still see 2 disagrees from the species-level IDers (along now with 1 agree).
Probably not an important issue, but it did take me a while to figure out why, on a recent page of 30 IDs, I had more than 40 “disagrees”, when there was probably only one actual disagreement.
