note to unknown

When i come across an unknown, i have taken to sharing the paragraph below to help promote a positive iNat experience. Feel free to use this as you wish.

Hi. I just wanted you to know why an unknown observation never seems to get attention. It turns out the iNat software will not see an unknown and the experts will not automatically notified. It is better to state ANY ID that is obvious to you. In this case, we can assume this is a flower. If we are wrong, the experts will correct it. Type in flow - and the id for flowering plants will pop up. Select the ID and click Done. Now the "flow" experts will be notified and your observation will get the attention it deserves. Nice photos by the way

Hi. I'm not sure if you know why an unknown observation never seems to get attention. It turns out the iNat software will not see an unknown and the experts will not automatically notified. It is better to state ANY ID that is obvious to you. In this case, we can assume this is a SOMETHING. If we are wrong, the experts will correct it. simply type in SOMETHING - and select the most general from the drop down. Now the experts will be notified and your observation will get the attention it deserves. Nice photos by the way.

A MORE GENERIC PLANT VERSION WAS NEEDED. AND FOR EDITING IT TO INCLUDE ANIMALS, THE PARTS TO CHANGE ARE IN CAPS.

It is better to state ANY ID that is obvious to you. In this case, we can assume this is a PLANT. If we are wrong, the experts will correct it. Type in PLAN - and the id for PLANTS will pop up. Select the ID and click Done. Now the "PLANT" experts will be notified and your observation will get the attention it deserves. Nice photos by the way
