I see this a fair bit so I thought it was worth posting.
I mostly focus on mycology, which doesn’t have near enough people adding records, even less going through to verify records. Because we need to encourage the folks we do have I am not sure why some seem really quick to correct taxa and form, which then draws into question the identification provided in a way that many users, specially new ones, will not be able to confirm.
Fungi goes through a lot of taxanomic change and someone new to the group may just have a guide book or two to go by. So when someone suggests a different ID of their observation because of a taxanomic change of just a few months old that can only be confirmed by reading a scientific paper that you have to purchase, how likely is the average user able to verify what is suggested?
I am not saying that it is not important, I am just saying that maybe its not always in the best interests of the data and the encouragement of new users to be making these changes. Maybe you can just leave a comment letting them know the name has changed if you think its important, rather than suggesting a different ID? Also if you are that bored you are surfing observations to make taxanomic changes, just dive into the fungi observations of your area and start confirming and fixing common easily identified fungi, because there is no end to the work needed there.
Just my opinion, do with it as you will.
