Passing in a user ID would lead to the same inconsistencies as using a post ID in my use case. I can’t assume that each author would have used each of the values of the ACF checkbox to populate the filter dropdown.
Additionally, this would fail in the context where a user is not logged in, or is a user without an actual author account – hence why I am hoping to access the ‘Options’ page or DB reference for the field.
