i just noticed that the last couple of sets of observations that i loaded are missing the time in the timestamps. date is there. see https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?d1=2019-03-01&d2=2019-03-19&place_id=any&subview=table&user_id=pisum&verifiable=any. observations from Mar 15 and Mar 17 are missing time, but observations from earlier in March show time.
did something change in the system that might have caused this?
i don’t think it’s related to the daylight savings shift, since my set of observations from Mar 11 have timestamp.
i’m looking at the photo metadata in one of the observations missing time, and it has the time captured: https://www.inaturalist.org/photos/33036820. so i don’t think the problem is in the photo metadata.
i thought maybe it was specific to computer uploads (since i upload via computer), but here are two observations uploaded by another guy at the same time, which i assume he uploaded using the same uploader:
- https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/21380463 (has time)
- https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/21380464 (missing time)
if you need to know my process, let me know, and i can provide more info.
EDIT: i opened one of the missing-time observations in edit mode, and i can see the time is there in the “When did you see it?” box. so it’s something about the way the system chooses to display (or not) the time.
