I have not been diligent about checking iNat over the past few weeks and as of today, I have over 2500 unread notifications. While I imagine most of these are simple agreements, I am undoubtedly missing many mentions and I will probably never see them unless they are on an observation currently resting in either fulgoridae or psylloidea. If you have an observation that you'd like me to see, I recommend instead linking it in the comments of this post for the time being.

I hope everyone is safe and healthy.

One solution to getting too many notifications is to opt out of receiving notifications of confirming identifications. Sambiology explains how to do it here https://www.inaturalist.org/posts/12545-too-many-notifications-dashboard-filling-up-be-sure-to-check-your-account-settings

As he explains, "Just go to your profile page, click on 'Edit account settings & profile' (located under your profile icon, if you've selected one). Then, scroll down a bit to 'activity settings.' There you can select [the notices you wish to receive and deselect others.]"

I did this some time ago. Although it means not getting notice when my own observations reach RG, it's worth it to make sure I don't miss responding to IDs that disagree with mine.
