Crabs-Getting the same record multiple times

    Reposting this one here.

    I appear to be receiving the same records multiple times. I have now seen this one 3 times all today, Saturday 11/14. Are my transcriptions not going thru? or is there a computer glitch going on? Thanks so much!

    Here's what I think is going on (but I'll still report this back to the programmers):

    Each record in Notes From Nature gets transcribed four times before it is considered "finished". Normally, I assume, the system keeps track of which records you've already transcribed and doesn't offer them to you again. However, because the Crab Shack doesn't yet have user login/badges set up, I'm guessing that it just doesn't know who you are, so it gives you any record that still hasn't been transcribed four times yet.

    So... if you think you've seen it before, you almost certainly have. We'd recommend NOT transcribing it again, but just "Skip" that record and move on to another.
