help confirm older observations

The 'Current feature: help confirm older observations' is an excellent idea. There are a couple of minor things I noticed however:

1. The lack of agreements by people with reputation points means that clearly identified records remain in the list. This isn't too bad in the main groups as someone will hopefully come along eventually, but with groups like Other Organisms where very few people have a reputation observations remain. For example: http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/7152
Obviously, this should be in Invertebrates so I'm not sure if the solution is admin reclassification to the correct group, or some small credence given to agreements by people with zero reputation in the group.

2. There is no way to browse the unconfirmed observations as you can with the groups, so users are limited to what can be seen from the thumbnails on the home page which has a limit on the number of images it shows.

Great site. Keep up the good work!
