This shows the large number of casual observations being created because of missing obs’ date, unknown to the observer:
Description of problem
Many people are having problems with posting observations from their phone.
THE OBSERVATION DATE IS MISSING.
They think it’s there, but looking at the above link you can see many great observations are marked as casual.
I’m sure we are loosing new members because of this. I don’t usually see casual records and so don’t id them for people. Most other id’ers are the same.
I suspect it’s a localization issue (ie Australian Date vs American Date format)
Because I don’t use a phone, I haven’t experienced the problem but see it and try to help people resolve their issues, but some of them get really narky … so I don’t do it anymore.
