I hope I am recognised as a supporter of iRECORD, nearly the best thing since sliced bread. So it does grieve me to hear, and not only once, “I submitted data to iRECORD ages ago and nothing was done with it.” In March 2013, nearly 4 years ago, I submitted, to try the system out, data with good photos of the Snow Flea Boreus – an insect that hundreds of UK entomologists could name and by contrast data and photos of the moderately difficult to id plant Cylcamen coum. Nothing has happened to these records.
I have seen suggestions, but not on this Forum that people who see their data just sitting, proactively remove them and send them elsewhere. Sorry not good enough.
This is a reputation thing. I feel iRECORD needs to do one of several things. Verify them, or tell me when I might expect them to be done , or tell me there is no reasonable expectation they will be done - like no verifier in “post” and a suggestion where I might send them.
It is obvious from my verification work for iRECORD that I am not going to walk away due to this problem but I know those who have.
