Description of problem:

Step 1: As a curator, click Edit Place:

Step 2: Admire the whale shark.

Note that this place is also missing the place creator. This is a different issue from this one, where the edit button is not available.

This came up from this flag:

Weird, I can open that page with my staff account, but not with a curator account. We can take a look this week.

Same issue with these places:

how do you create a place with no boundaries?

Not sure, but there are a lot of places that are just points. Maybe these ones are a separate issue, but I’ve been able to edit other point places before.

I wonder if maybe this is the same issue as for these two places?:

Yeah that’s actually what I linked to in the above flags. Sorry that might’ve been a little confusing…

I asked the place creator to send KMLs because I don’t think they should be able to make places like this, but haven’t heard back yet. It would be good to see if that’s part of the issue. I dowloaded the place’s KML from iNat, but I don’t think that’s the exact same file that was uploaded.

Made a Github issue here: https://github.com/inaturalist/inaturalist/issues/4036


Here’s another:

I wonder if this is more recent as I don’t think I’ve seen this before, and I’ve gone through all the place flags a few times.

And another one:

Should be fixed now. How’s it looking for you?
