I’m a new iNaturalist user coming from eBird (which I use extensively), so I was expecting a similar experience here (perhaps wrongly). I thought I’d start by submitting a half dozen anuran species I’ve seen in my yard in the last month. I didn’t include photos or audio this time. I was working off my desktop.
First, I’m not seeing where previously visited locations are saved, if at all, so every time I submitted a species, I had to drill down on the map to my pond. That seems like it would get old fast.
Second, when I went to check out the ‘life list’ it showed zero, although I submitted 6 or 7 spp. I finally set the filter to ‘observed: no’, which for some reason listed the species I had submitted. Setting it to ‘observed: yes’ still showed zero, which makes absolutely no sense to me.
What’s the deal?
