It happened to stumble upon a user who marked as wild a hundred among his observations of cultivated plants. To keep these observations not casual he has been aided by other users. I noticed that two among those who provided wrong DQA have been suspended (I do not know for which reasons) but their vote are still counting in the DQA.
Surely DQA votes from suspended users should be revoked.
Otherwise needs a feature request for iNat to manage this differently in future.
Only DQA? Or may be identifications too? And what’s about observations?
Suspension doesn’t remove votes in the DQA, so there isn’t a bug here.
We can flag pictures or IDs that are deliberately offensive - then curators can hide them.
If bad behaviour leads to suspension, that bad behaviour should no longer count (for the CID algorithm or DQA) Otherwise the ‘bad’ behaviour is rewarded.
Someone could be suspended for reasons other than data quality (eg insults). If the user has been making false votes, staff can and have removed them, but removing/hiding all of an account’s content is not tied to suspension. Suspension just prevents the account from being used for the suspension period.
Ok. But if users have been suspended for issues related to the DQA, then, theoretically, it would be desirable that their DQA would be deleted.
So, if it is technically feasible, take into account the possibility to implement this feature.
