Here’s the situation:
there is a project going on right now containing more than 1,000 observations already, and many of them are falsely IDed. Some members of the project (more than 20 users in total) ID many of their colleague’s observations, so that they become Research Grade with 5-6 supporting IDs.
With the result that even two disagreements are not enough to revert them.
And even after the (maverick) disagreement was made, other members will leave another vote for the group
I wrote to the two project admins directly, but no responses.
What should be done in such a case?
- Should I link to the project here and ask for a concerted action from forum members to help clean it up (Hong Kong-style)?
- should I alert the admins at help@inaturalist?
- should I flag the project (well, the project itself is fine, it’s just the inappropriate behavior of project members)
- should I just wait until these issues are resolved in the months (or years) to come?
