Managing Imported Data.
This is at least the 3rd time I have asked this question. I downloaded all my AviSys dat, 38,000 points, into ebird. I have 300 locations that needed "changing". I am trying to work through this but ebird will not accept my changes unless I go through the exercise at least 4 to 5 times before the change in accepted. I am down to less than 100 now, but the frustration continues. I repeat the change menu sequence 4 or 5 time for each time the change is accepted. I retains the last change and will not replace it with the current change, even overnight! Very very tedious. I am less enthused about my decision to do this. If there is a solution please advise. I suspect the problem is on your end of data base management.

Most of the people who frequent this Help forum are just users like yourself.
Since your question has not been answered I would suggest emailing eBird directly.

Thank you for your response. I have emailed them twice and have not received a response. It's been weeks. Anyway I have come from >300 locations to correct to less than 50. It has been incredibly frustrating and slow. What should be three clicks and done requires looping 4 or 5 times. Leaving ebird and returning to the menu, then it will work. I would not recommend this exercise for historical data import to anyone with a large data base.
