2 of these Global posts (Outside UK) are using the UKSI Dictionary. Prior to precisely 21st November 2013 all EU Observations were using the UKSI. After which all 'overseas observations' (outside the jolly UK) were banished to be NON UK ones. The Channel Isles, the Isle of Man were also banished to the CoL.and Global on that date
Observations from the Isles and anywhere OTHER than the UK (and Eire for some reason) were to be excluded from the Current Carousel. from then on (that morning) Global had its own community - non UK.
But don't confuse Global with Australia or the USA, they are Global global. Chile and Hong Kong have their own Community but are in the Global community - get it? You may have to read that several times...even then...
There is another huge Community, the name slips my mind, but it uses the SANBI.
I have been asking for a while for signs of the discussions that must have taken place prior to November 2013. It happened just as I joined (you were here) but I can find no evidence, which might have been in the Forum of the day.
I THINK there were complaints that overseas observations, those mostly by holiday-makers, were cluttering up the Carousels "how can we be expected to agree to strange fleas in Sardinia?".
The long and short of it is that two of 'your' posts above are in still the UK Community (using the UKSI) and ARE seen in Other Observations there; BUT they are the only two, as Sideritis romana does not occur in the UK https://www.gbif.org/species/2926687 - that's straightforward...isn't it?
Personally, I'd not like to see those posts reconfigured, without them and a few others, this (tedious, sorry) story would have no meaningful evidence.
