As have I. It seems like it causes quite the rift between people, and in my opinion, sorta seems like the user with it on doesn’t want input, which isn’t what I wanted at all, so that’s why I wasn’t comfortable with where I was at, with it on, but that still left a problem for me.
And I like this, lots. The only reason this particular thing really bothered me so much, was that I conversed with this person about how I don’t expect them to say “I can tell exactly what it was”, and that I am fine with that. After switching to opt-out then back to opt-in, all those observations that only had one other ID other than my own, went back to what I initially put them as. Maybe it was a bug or maybe I just screwed all my stuff up, but I didn’t think that one suggested ID was meant to change it to whatever that ID is, and that’s what was bothering me. I had thousands of just “plants”, “flowering plants”, “life”. I usually reserve those for when there’s not a single identification on somebody else’s observation, or if I genuinely have 0 idea, and in these cases, I knew fully what it was and just wanted it to stay at that.
That being said, I didn’t know there was a much easier way to do such a thing, that wouldn’t impede other observations. I still think maybe I was suffering from a bit of an error, with how they all switched displays after just one opposing ID, but maybe I am wrong. Either way, I feel much more aware and confident in handling my side of things, because while I understand how people use things differently than I, and I respect that entirely, I want to be able to use iNat in the way that I would like too, as well.
Thank you for taking the time to comment. Knowing that I can opt out on an individual-basis is very enlightening and helpful - it was literally exactly the kind of solution I was looking for.
