iNatters have control over whether other users can add their observations to traditional projects or attach observation field data to them. In my opinion that control should extend to collection projects.
Projects are often wrapped up to look like an official, curated collection, when in fact some of the top “participants” in the project may have nothing to do with the project. Usually this is fine, no big deal, but there are some iNat projects I do not endorse, such as those that promote foraging native plants from over-visited/threatened natural areas (a discussion for another topic!). However, my iNat contributions are being displayed prominently on those project homepages. There are analogous disagreements with projects that have been brought up by others to no satisfactory resolution because the project admin refuses to add the user exclusion themselves. I also tried to resolve my issue with the project admin, but never received a reply.
I believe the exclusion filter that is applied should be displayed publicly on the Read More/About page of the project so that everyone can understand why the project stats may not match a similar filtered search on Explore.
Some ideas for placement are near the top, where other info/settings are, or maybe near the bottom, where you can flag an inappropriate project.
This is not a request for changing existing or adding new user account settings, but a new option for opting out of specific collection projects.
