who reviews the reviewer

when a reviewer submits a personal bird list and receives an alert on a sighting who reviews that sighting, surely not said reviewer!

see page 16 of the Review and Filter Instructions document, under the heading "Should reviewers review their own records?"

Review Tool and Filter Instructions (download below as .pdf)

"it is preferable to have a different individual act upon your records whenever possible. This ensures greater objectivity and protects against claims of bias in how these records are treated. So please try, when possible, to leave your own records for others to deal with if there is another reviewer with access to review your records.

Norman and Andrew,

This is a "yes, but..." situation

first a question : what is a 'meg test'
as suggested by Andrew i read page 16 of Review and Filter instructions document. my problem is with 'whenever possible' which i see as a loophole. why doesn't Ebird make it an absolute necessity for reviewers to have another reviewer review said reviewers records. i can imagine a reviewer on a remote island without access to a reviewer. in that case why can't that reviewer send records directly to ebird for persons such as Andrew Core to peruse. thanks
