Until now, when one looked at an observation on Explore and Identify on the iNaturalist website, the ID badge only showed the number of active IDs added by users other than the observer. We’re now showing all IDs added to the observation, including the active ID added by the observer, if there is one.
This is a fix for a bug, and also a move towards consistency in ID count displays. The Android app already counted IDs this way, and the new mobile app we’re working on will do so as well.
It’s just a slight display change but it’s definitely a bit jarring to me since I’m used to seeing fewer ID badges on observations, and I imagine it’ll look odd to other web users at first so I wanted to give a heads up about it here.
If you see any bugs, please make a new topic for it in Bug Reports.
