There’s one observation https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/64034065 that shows up in id tab but no matter how many times I mark it as reviewed it’s getting back again, I know usually when user is blocked their observations can still be accessed, in this example observation page is not working, so maybe it’s a bug this observation is shown at all?
I’m using this link
When I click on review all it shows me an error and it’s back again.
I just checked and get the same behavior.
The observation shows up in Identify, you can check “reviewed” but it reappears immediately upon refreshing the page. Clicking the observation view link takes you to “This user was suspended” instead of an observation. Usually observations from suspended users are either still accessible, or deleted entirely, but this one seems stuck in limbo.
By blocked do you mean suspended? I don’t have anyone blocked but I’m not having this problem. I review it and it goes away. Different because I’m a curator and can see suspended users?
Yes, I mean banned, when you block person you can’t open their observations.
I changed the title of the post to “suspended” to more accurately describe the status of the account.
@zdanko Still behaves the same way for me. You’re a curator, right? I think think this bug probably only effects non-curator accounts, since we can’t access suspended account info and you can.
Here’s a link that will show just that observation, if anyone else wants to have a look:
I tried it out. Opened observation in identify module. Clicked view but got page indicating user was suspended. Hit back button in browser which brought me back to the identify module. Marked as reviewed then closed module. Thumbnail showed as reviewed. Refreshed page. Thumbnail now shows as not reviewed.
@graysquirrel nice sleuthing! I can replicate using my non-curator test account. Added to my weekly report.
Questagame is suspended.
But they remain the top observer of Nephilinae.
Well, their observations are still in the database and would be working normally, if not for this bug. Observations of suspended users don’t go anywhere.
Suspended users can be suspended for reasons other than data quality. So unless there’s something wrong with the actual observations, the observations of a suspended user are publicly available and are the same as any other observation.
Yes, their profile is not viewable, but you can search for their observations: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?locale=en&preferred_place_id=1&subview=table&taxon_id=498534&user_id=questagame
And their observations should still come up in search results regardless.
Sorry, forgot to say I added this to my weekly report.
This should be fixed now, it would be great if a non-curator can test it out.
Just tested, and it seems to work correctly now!
