Does anyone see something I’m missing?
looks like a taxon change on C. guereza just happened?
Yeah, sorry I’m futzing with it right now – not related to the number issue, it was a change that was planned already. I’ll get back to you if it fixes itself when I’m done, but I doubt it.
There are some remaining issues with the taxon change I just did – should have those fixed soon. But the observation count is still 0 for percivali…
the observation is now Needs ID. that’s strange, considering there are 2 IDs.
Yeah, sorry again, that was one of the lingering issues of the taxon change. I’ve asked loarie about it already. Clearly I shouldn’t have posted this forum question while making a big taxon change, I just wasn’t thinking :/
Anyway, I added another ID to bring it back to RG, which in theory shouldn’t matter because the observation count on the taxon page isn’t restricted to RG. I’m still seeing 0 for that subspecies.
ok… i guess the best i can do here is confirm that what you’re seeing is what i’m seeing.
for some reason, if you ask the API taxa endpoint for observation_count for 147637, it returns 0. it looks like that value may be stored in a table on the back end. i thought maybe the observation is so old that the record in that table may simply not have been updated with recent processes. so i created a dummy casual record on that taxon, hoping that might trigger a new count, but no luck…
i checked on this one more time just now, and the count now reflects 2 records. i’m not sure if anyone else did anything to help this along, but if not, maybe it just took a little bit for the count to get updated? anyway, i went ahead and deleted my dummy record, and hopefully the count will be set correctly to 1 at some point.
I see it as 1 now.
I’m going to close this, but I’m still not sure what caused the issue in the first place. I’ll keep a lookout for similar problems in the future.
