Having recently had all my records imported I am going through the process of updating any that are shown as 'Unknown' type.

The following steps are followed.

  1. Select 'View' on sighting
  2. Select 'Edit'
  3. Change Type from 'Unknown' and insert a value for Model.
  4. Click on Update.

I then see a Stack Trace, see below. If return to My Sightings the sightings have been updated. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Rusty,

I'm sure Nighthawk would have the definitive answer on this but my guess would be that the manual update might not match with the database. You can update your personal record however you wish and it will show as such. But when first logging it's best to log it directly from the database. So if you have any showing as unknown then you can alternatively log it in the database then dedupe and remove the manual entry. I may be completely wrong but that's how I would do it!

Hi Dougie,

Thanks for your reply. I will give it a try and see if it any quicker than the way I mentioned above. With just over 7000 to update any improvement to the time it takes will be welcome.

Hi Rusty,

I've just uploaded a change which should hopefully fix this error. Let me know if you still have issues.
