When using the Mac keyboard shortcut to reload the Identify page (⌘+R, command + R), the most recently selected observation occasionally also gets reviewed. Presumably this is because just pressing R reviews the observation last selected (which is maybe a separate bug?). However, for the reload shortcut to work, you have to press ⌘ first, so it’s not an accidental mistype and it seems like a bug. It doesn’t happen super frequently so I haven’t found any patterns, but it happens often enough to be annoying.
Sometimes the observation is marked as reviewed right before the page reloads but then once it does reload it isn’t reviewed, so there’s no real issue. Sometimes this same thing happens, but selecting the observation again “permanently” marks it as reviewed. Sometimes reloading the page marks the observation as reviewed right before the page reloads and it doesn’t come back when the page reloads. Sometime reloading the page just makes the observation disappear with no “pre-mark” warning. Sometimes reloading the page a second (or third or fourth) makes it mysteriously reappear again unreviewed. Most of the time the page reloads with no issues. The issue only happens with the keyboard shortcut, not reloading the page with the reload button.
Here is a scenario of the second situation in the paragraph above. It took a few tries to get it to happen, but this seems like the most common issue.
Identify queue, last observation was last observation selected.
Observation marked as reviewed after ⌘+R but before page finishes reloading.
After reloading reverts to what is expected.
Selecting the observation marks it as reviewed automatically.
When deselected, the observation is still reviewed.
Page is reloaded again, the observation is gone (because the filters only allow unreviewed observations).
I can find the observation on the Explore search, and unreviewing it makes it show back up in my Identify queue.
Interestingly enough, as I was trying to replicate this for screenshots a different observation mysteriously disappeared: the penultimate observation selected (which is the first time I’ve noticed this, but maybe it happens more often). This would be the fourth situation in my above paragraph. This is the view before my first screenshot (third observation straight up disappeared):
