Hi all, not a complaint, just curious.
I was under the impression that only curators could change photos on the species - pages. (I know curators are not admins but still)
Today I found a Black-headed Gull-photo from flickr (which I can’t reproduce now) that was the first to come up in the Brown-headed Gull information page (https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/144511-Chroicocephalus-brunnicephalus)
The bird had a dark eye, like a Black-headed Gull (the commonest gull where I live) and I figured this was that species. I chose to replace that photo.
I found a better match on flickr (adult summer Brown-headed Gull) and added that to the species-page.
I didn’t know we mere mortals could add photos to speciespages. And I think it’s a bit scary that we can, since mere mortals make more mistakes with id’s than - I think - experts or hopefully curators do.
Am I right in thinking that we can all change the photos that are attached to species pages? And…
wouldn’t it be wise to have a double check feature for that (in some form)
hope to hear from you,
