Dear web designers,
I post a lot on iNaturalist (nearly 6,000) and love everything about the site. As the data base has grown, I have used the search function more and more often to help identify both the common and rare across the world.
Today, March 1, the format changed, and not for the better. When I enter a specific request, a map now pops up first and then a scroll down column of too small photos. This is not the least bit helpful to sort through sometimes hundreds of photos.
I’m not sure what the web designers thought this would accomplish, but I truly find it frustrating and not helpful at all. I already spend way too much time on this passion and can ill afford to have the search function more tedious.
