Jeff:

I'm running version 40 and am having a problem. The sub-region table only shows the county, not the state it is associated with. Hence, I can't tell if I'm searching Hamilton, Tennessee or Hamilton, Ohio. See attached screenshot. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Neill,

Yikes. Didn't think about that. Hmmm. Let me dig into how I might resolve that.

Stay tuned.

Hi Neill,

Ok - build 41 will have this added to the dropdown.

That should resolve the ambiguity in all cases. Or until we find another new situation. 😉

Thanks for reporting this.

Okay, so I spoke too soon. The sub-regions work fine, but BD always defaults to the first sub region in the list, rather than "remembering" the sub region that you last used. In my case, it defaults to Hamilton, FL rather than Hamilton, OH. Is it possible to have BD remember and automatically search the last sub region entered? 😥 Thanks in advance.

Neill

Ok - said programmer has been chastised. Worked on Saturday to correct mistake.

This was a weird one though, so we have to give him a break. He's a good guy. 😉

This is a day-one, very unique situation bug. The code never correctly handled the situation that this combination dropdown presented.

Fixed in Build 43. Due out soon.

I'm in Build 43 and had a similar problem to the one Pileated reported. I manually refreshed the Ebird data and all countries are now represented. BUT this problem happened AFTER I updated to build 43. Just an FYI.

I emailed you separately about a taxonomy licensing issue I'm having. I only include that here in case it's a factor in the Ebird data problem. TIA

Hi Neill (@cincybirder)

Got your email and will respond to that shortly. Still shaking out the cobwebs on this new feature. 

You are up and running now. So I assume good.

Can you please email me your BD6043_worker.log file? That will give me insight into any problems.

Thanks.

Sent a few minutes ago. The Ebird database is still okay.
