There was a temporary issue that is hopefully resolved now. Are you having trouble accessing the site at the moment?





Step 1: Edit project

Step 2: Begin typing in location, no “add location” option is given even though I have 50+ verified observations

This appears to be a duplicate post originally intended for https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/unable-to-edit-projects/50615/9 . This post is about trouble accessing the website, which was a temporary problem lasting a couple minutes that should have since been resolved. Please let us know if there are any more problems access the website.


Yes just before I made this post I kept receiving the same webpage saying there was too much traffic. I was unable to reproduce the issue after making the post but it typically happens around 12pm PST and 5pm PST when I’m sure the user load is at its highest.

It may be the same issue but was still ongoing at the time.
