Apparently not a bug, but often when I page through a series of adjacent records on my own account, the photo in a record will display only as a tiny thumbnail image. If I click on that image it will then display at normal size. Seems to happen a lot as I flip through records. Is this just a problem with the photo loading on the page if I am going through a series of adjacent records quickly?
What interface/webpage are you using? Can you give some example addresses or screenshots?
Meaning you’re using these buttons?
I can’t replicate when doing that with my own records, or with yours. However, your photos are all rights reserved, meaning they’re stored on a different server. That might have something to do with it?
The next time this happens, if you can open up your browser’s console and share a screenshot that includes the console that would be helpful.
My photos are all CC BY-NC. Or the vast majority. This isn’t really a problem, just an occasional annoyance, and I was mostly curious if others see this when browsing through their own records. Doesn’t happen all the time or with every photo.
Yes, when I use the forward and back arrows, as you indicate. It’s almost as if my computer is not quite keeping up with loading the records. Time for a new computer?
The same thing happens to me at times. It is usually when I upload new observations, then want to go through them to add annotations. My computer’s not very old, so I don’t think it is the age of the computer that causes it.
I recommend using the Identify page for that. It’s much faster.
I usually only upload a small number at once, so speed isn’t a major concern. But for future reference, how do I get to an identify screen for my own observations?
(Sorry, should have followed the link.) (Now I have and I am still unsure.)
Sorry, the tutorial I sent you to was for a different method. Here are the basics for using identify to annotate.
Here’s the URL I use to see my most recently uploaded observations: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identify?reviewed=true&quality_grade=needs_id%2Cresearch%2Ccasual&user_id=tiwane
tiwane with your own username to see your own observations in the Identify page.
Thanks. I have saved the URL (with my own ID, obviously) and will give it a try next time I have a few observations to upload and annotate.
I get this from time to time to the point where I’ve stopped acknowledging it as an actual occurrence .
Yes, this has started happening to me too. It happens on both my laptop and my desktop, and it only started recently (within the past 6 months at most). It isn’t restricted to scrolling through my own observations, but also occurs when I scroll through someone else’s. I use chrome and I haven’t tried using a different browser to see if it makes a difference.
I use Chrome also and I also started noticing this within last several months.
I’ve noticed the same behavior (tiny thumbnail view of image when clicking through my own recently uploaded observations) while using Mozilla Firefox.
Happens to me too. I also use Chrome.
After checking my observations for a while trying to replicate it, it finally happened. @tiwane
I’m using Firefox on a macbook, but I guess is probably not system related
In a small note I found it cool that the arrows show the next or previous taxa
i too have observed this happening pretty often when using those arrows mentioned.
OK, apparently it was a bug and we did make an issue for it in August. A release has been fixed, let me know if you’re still running into the problem.
