Help with confirming (already confirmed!) observations?

The carousel for 'help with confirming observations' seems to be full of pictures where there is already a consensus on the identification...yet the original wrong ID seems to be holding sway, however many have agreed with a new ID.

There seem to have been new

There seem to have been new problems with the site yesterday evening! 502 error message kept coming up and no photos on individual observations. So maybe your problem was part of this!
All seems to be OK again this morning - for the moment!
ISPOT TECHNICAL TEAM - appreciate you will be working on this!

The more I know the more I realise I don't know

Carousel

There are still plenty of pictures on the 'Help with...' carousel which are correctly identified now and have agreements, and so should not be there. An example...

A way round it

Ian, if you un-agree with it then agree again it will add the likely ID.

un-agree

Or someone could fix the problem?!

I don't have time to mess around like that... but thanks anyway, Chris.

Another example...

Two 5 star contributors not enough to make the ID acceptable? Has the system changed, then, or is it just a glitch?

Last weekend

It was last weekends problem whereby all reputations were not working and therefore their waiting did not apply to observations. There are 100's on the system like this. I'll put the observation you refer to right. Chris.

Last weekend

Thanks, Chris...I must have missed that, last weekend.

It needs one of the team to correct the working then.

You're correct that this problem stems from the difficulties we had a week or two ago, and that those observations where the Likely ID is not showing can be corrected by someone adding a further agreement (or by un-agreeing and then agreeing again).

I've been doing this where I can, but there will be more to find. I'll see if there is any chance of this being updated automatically but at the moment I don't think we have a technical solution available, many apologies for that.
