Why do users opt out of community ID? I can see valid reasons for opting out of community ID for specific observations. But my experience with users who opt out universally is that they often show patterns of misidentifications, which leads to inaccurate data points, and frequently don’t engage with the community where there is disagreement. My sense is that some people use this feature without fully understanding what it means. This has caused me to question whether “opt-out” observations should be treated the same way as observations which are are subject to community ID.
Some ideas to float around:
- Treat “opt-out” observations as Casual grade until there is community agreement
- Turn off computer vision suggestions for users who opt out of community ID
- Make the “opt-out” feature more difficult to find
- Provide a pop-up when someone turns on the “opt-out” feature explaining what the feature means in detail
- Don’t allow users with fewer than n observations to use the “opt-out” feature
- Automatically turn off the “opt-out” feature for users who are inactive for more than n years
Any other thoughts? I see that similar topics have been posted but I wanted to draw them all into a single thread for discussion.
