following a discussion with @dimus , the following use case would allow users to help classify / annotate bad names and suggest alternative valid names:

  1. A checklist contains the species name Airius felis
  2. a program X send the name to the resolver api at
  3. resolver replies that the name Airius felis is bad and includes a feedback url
  4. program X sends the feedback url to a user Y
  5. User Y clicks on the feedback url
  6. On the name feedback webpages, user Y confirms that the name is bad, indicates that the name contains a typo (e.g. Arius felis), is outdated, and that the valid name is Ariopsis felis .
  7. next time program X sends the name Airius felis resolver replies that the name is bad, and include a suggestion to use the name Ariopsis felis suggested by user Y.

@dimus let me know if I captured the use case properly. I do realize that this use case if very specific to GloBI . . .

I think your description is good, I would extend 6th point where most usual case would be not
to confirm that bad name is bad, but to complain when bad name is marked good and vice versa
