Some odd ID conflict issues

Platform (Android, iOS, Website): Website

Browser, if a website issue (Firefox, Chrome, etc) : Firefox, apparently Chrome also. I don’t think it’s related to browser.

URLs (aka web addresses) of any relevant observations or pages: Unfortunately, the post holding up this ID had to be deleted. Perhaps admins can still see its effects?

Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.): Lately I’ve been seeing some odd ID issues where a previous ID I proposed would be withdrawn as normal when I pinned an observation down to a more certain ID, but it would still register as a conflicting ID until I deleted the post entirely, oddly, even if the ID was of a higher taxon that included the newer ID. This just happened with the sole Ute insulagemmae observation so far ID’d on the site. It would not register it as U. insulagemmae on that species page until I deleted my old auto-withdrawn Sycon ID entirely. But the very second I did, it showed up. Before this I got a weird maverick label for an ID that was a member of higher taxa (there weren’t even enough IDs to qualify as a maverick, if I remember right) and the maverick label wouldn’t go away until I deleted my withdrawn ID.

As a side note, Bouteloua closed the thread about the Ctrl + left click issue before I could mention that it’s still happening.

I’m seeing it say “blue_lotus disagrees this is Genus Sycon Hairy Tube Sponges,” but I see that there is no ID of genus Sycon still there. Definitely looks like a bug to me too!

I deleted the ID of “Sycon”, but yeah, the “disagreement” is still there.

it might be a little clearer if you capture screenshots of each step of the process:

  1. delete your current ID. (don’t worry. you’ll add it back later.)
  2. take a screenshot.
  3. add a Sycon ID.
  4. take a screenshot.
  5. add the Ute insulagemmae ID.
  6. take a screenshot.
  7. delete your Sycon ID. (at this point, you should be back in the same boat as before.)
  8. take a screenshot.
  9. add the screenshots you took to this discussion.

it doesn’t really matter that the disagreement indicator is here though, does it? it’s not really affecting anything.

You’re right; the disagreement indicator doesn’t affect anything because that always shows up if you leave a disagreeing ID and the person who you are disagreeing with deletes the ID in question… but it is weird that it said it was a disagreement at all. Maybe the taxon wasn’t set up properly for that species?

it’s a disagreement because your latest ID is different than the previous observation taxon.
