Effect of editing

Submitted by mags49 on

Help!   I edited a record that had been accepted by a verifier.  Having gone in to have a quick look at it, I spotted a typo (woodland 'markings' instead of 'margins') so corrected it in the text.  But now the record is a skeletal record only. 20992053, Agroeca brunnea in Abernethy forest.  Should I do anything now?

I've gone and had a look at the record and it looks fine, it will just need verifying again (I'm not sure what you mean by it being skeletal only, as it seems to have a full lot of data and two photos still.) 

As you have discovered, if you edit any part of a record that has been verified then it resets the record so it has to be verified again (in case what you have changed affects the opinion of the verifier). So basically no, you don't need to do anything else with this record, but for the future avoid editing already submitted records unless there is a material error (i.e. the date or location is wrong).
