This is a privacy issue. I had locations shared that I did not mean to share, because I didn’t think I needed to make the locations private, since they were supposed to be removed anyway
Platform (Android, iOS, Website): happens both when using the Android app’s “remove location” button and when removing the coordinates from the observation on the website.
App version number, if a mobile app issue (shown under Settings or About): 1.28.5 (558)
Browser, if a website issue (Firefox, Chrome, etc): Chrome for Android
URLs (aka web addresses) of any relevant observations or pages: I’ve been trying to remove them from this one https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/139535373 (real coordinates replaced with fake ones since I can’t remove them and they were at my house)
Screenshots of what you are seeing: see below
Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):
Step 1: create and save a observation with a location.
Step 2: edit the observation in the Android app.
Step 3: use the menu at the top right and pick “remove location.”
Step 4: click yes to confirm that you want to remove the location.
Step 5: save the observation. click yes to confirm that you want to save the observation without the coordinates.
Now it looks like the coordinates are removed:
Step 6: close and sync the observation.
Step 7: open the observation on the app or website. see that the coordinates are still there.
Step 1: create and save an observation with a location.
Step 2: edit the observation on the iNaturalist website through your web browser.
Step 3: remove the location coordinates.
Step 4: save, and confirm that you want to save without location coordinates.
Step 5: open the observation on the app or website. see that the coordinates are still there.
