Hi. My boyfriend and I sometimes share the same observations, because we go hiking together and so on and it can happen that only one of us takes the photos and then shares them. So, we upload the same photo, in the same location, on the same date.
Despite your Guidelines say: “Keep in mind that observations of the same individual by different people are not duplicates. Those are two unique observations and don’t merit any kind of curatorial action”, we are receiving lots of comments in which people comment “duplicate”, “bug”, “theft” and so on. One did even say that we risk copyright infringement!
I wish you could send an email to all users where you underline that sharing the same photo is not a duplicate, as we are two different people and we have the right to upload what we saw, event if we have only one photo. This is becoming very annoying.
