I’m not sure if this is related but in case it is, I’m adding this slightly different take on the issue here. Please let me know if this should be reported separately.
I bulk uploaded a batch of ID’d spotted hyaenas yesterday - I ran both detection & ID from the bulk import task page.
Today, when I went to check the dataset, I selected an unassigned encounter (https://africancarnivore.wildbook.org/encounters/encounter.jsp?number=e5539005-f186-4786-bba6-8a95dc95bd25) that would have been cloned by the system as there were 3 individuals in the same media asset.
I selected the animal in the centre of the image to view match results. When I did this, I got 3 target encounters presented on the same page, with the one I’d selected at the bottom, rather than the top of the list:
Wildbook for Carnivores
I know that previously, when we ran detection + ID on a bulk import batch, it would display all encounters from that batch on the match results when any encounter’s match results were selected for viewing but I know that’s changed now so that only the encounter selected is the one that displays as the target image in the match results displayed.
In this case, only the 3 encounters from the same media asset were displayed on the match results page. However, not realizing this (@ 100% I can’t see that there are more target images below), I was confused by the target encounter at the top of the page not being the one I’d selected to view match results of - I clicked on the "match results for [encounter link] at the top of the page and it took me to the encounter I’d originally selected but the target image appeared wrong to me until I realized that there were 2 other target images on the same page, once I scrolled down.
So that was my bad, although having more than 1 target encounter on the page was unexpected. However, the confusion almost caused me to confirm the match between the top target image and the first proposed match, even though the link at the top left of the match results page referred to a different target encounter (the 3rd on the page).
But then I went back to the same original encounter record and selected “match results” again. This time, I also got 3 target encounters on the same match results page, and they’re the same 3 from the original media asset. But this time the encounter link at the top of the page was for the only assigned encounter of the 3 which was also the target encounter at the top of the page - which was the same as the one at the top of the previous match results page (link above) - is this making any sense?
So it seems at least somewhat related to the original issue reported here because clicking on match results from the same original encounter (https://africancarnivore.wildbook.org/encounters/encounter.jsp?number=e5539005-f186-4786-bba6-8a95dc95bd25) put a different encounter link at the top of the match results page.
That said, I think this is more related to the fact that the system is displaying all 3 encounters from a single media asset on the same page.
I hope this makes some kind of sense. Essentially, I think that displaying multiple targets on the same results page is confusing and I think should be fixed to only display the target encounter that was the one where match results was selected from, not others from the same media asset.
