I have learned to scroll past if there are already 2 IDs that agree, especially if at least one is someone I trust. And I have learned to check first, why a string of people are trying to convince Needs ID.
We could save our wasted effort if Needs ID was greyed out as Opted Out. Or go ahead with ID knowing that iNat will NEVER be convinced.
I would not say it will never be convinced, I have certainly seen cases where opt out users change their ID when they realize after multiple community ones they are wrong. But, yes the automatically determined ID will never change.
Ah, ok. :) Well, that’s a separate issue. My “ask” is just for adding text to the observation itself re: user has opted out of having others add their observations to projects (either ones they haven’t subscribed to or at all).
iNat staff, I’d just like a text blurb warning, like IDs already had for opt-outs and observation fields just got for opt-outs.
