Is this only happening for an obs that has no coordinates and/or no existing taxon chosen? The major problem with suggestions from RG obs is that without any filters… that’s often a lot of suggestions, which is a very large API response, which might cause a crash if your phone doesn’t have a lot of free memory. We can (and maybe) should cap the list at 10 like we do for visual suggestions, but that kinds of defeats the purpose of the feature for me, which is see everything that people have observed within a specific taxon & place query.
It should show you leaf taxa represented in RG observations given place and/or taxon filters, e.g. “show me all the maples observed in New Hampshire” or “show me all members of the Plethodon”. It’s not necessarily just nearby stuff.
It’s an icon we use to represent observations… sometimes.
Hm. The Compare tool compares your observation with a taxon, not necessarily a specific photo with a taxon, so I’m not sure if this is really a problem, but I guess if other people find this confusing then maybe it is.
An oversight, will fix.
That’s how it’s supposed to work. If “We’re pretty sure it’s” a sparrow but you choose to see only plants, we don’t have a single suggestion to show you that we have much confidence in.
It the top 10 suggestions without filtering out the non seen-nearby options. So basically the same as the production version of the app does now.
Maybe. Is suspect we avoided the verb “Add” b/c we often use that to label buttons that create content like “Add an identification”
Again, maybe, except it’s not really viewing all suggestions, just the top 10, which is an arbitrary cutoff.
