@jdmore Thank you. This topic seems perfect.
@jwidness Thank you for your explanations, highly appreciated.
To make sure that I understood, I tried to enter your explanations in the table, expanded as follows (I hope I got them right) :
Please note that I did not update the ID numbers, notably because the different panels seem to change asynchronously.
I have seen that it is easy to convert the result from URL#1 into that of URL#2 by just adding ‘&verifiable=any’ to URL #1. The reverse does not work : adding &verifiable=true to URL#2 does not change anything, but the format of URL #2 is very different.
In addition, it was my understanding that URL #2 restricted the counting to only the IDs that matched Community IDs (“Yes only” in my previous table), but because the result is equivalent to URL#1 + &verifiable=any, then IDs that do not match Community IDs are obviously included.
This issue was previously discussed notably in topic https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/urls-using-both-ident-user-id-and-ident-taxon-id/14510 for the same question ; it ended with proposal of using the same kind of URL.
Hi @pisum , please help again on this issue ! why is it that the URL #2 jumear.github.io/stirfry/iNatAPIv1_identifications.html seems to act just like ‘ident_user_id’ in the observations page ?
Otherwise, @jwidness to me there are 3 remaining questions (see “?” one each for URL #1,2 and 5), the most difficuly perhaps concerning URL #2 again. Indeed I was able to convert 26675 into 27783 the way you said, but I still do not understand why URL #2 shows 27515.
