"Back" button behavior in the VM

Hi All, We have discovered that a change has occured recently in the behavior of the VM. When you are searching and push the "back" button on your browser you used to see the previous movie with an error message ("warning you have reached this page by an unusual route..."). If you made any clicks on...

Hi Layla, True, it has been quiet in here the past couple of months. Phase 2 is more relaxed that Phase 1 had been. Phase 3 may bring about some more activity as there will be new features to the website and new data! We do have the Stardust@home Community Forum, which was meant as a place for off t...

Bryan: Dec 8, 13.25 GMT - the fault continues in both IE(7) and Netscape(7.2), which I believe is essentially the same as Mozilla Firefox. Strangely, Firefox itself always refuses to let me even log in, so am unable to test it. That is strange. I am under the impression that Firefox and Netscape ar...

Update: 7 Dec 2007 - New Updates to the Website

During our recent down time we implemented some new updates on the website that we have been testing over the past several weeks. First, we altered the way events in the My Events page are loaded, and that page should now load much faster. Please check it out and let us know how it works for you. Pa...

I have noticed that when you go back after clicking only once, you do not go back but to a new movie. 16 Nov, 19.15 GMT: decided to check out what fjgiie says, and have found that every click back takes me to a new movie. Subsequently clicking forward then brings up the 'you have reached here via a...

Hello pluk, Sorry to not have responded sooner to your queries. I've been otherwise occupied or absent for the past couple of weeks... It looks like a a few of your "incorrect" misses were likely due to the strange delayed scoring problem. In some of the cases you did in fact click on the right trac...

Re: Rank and score again

I'd like to add a request for rank and score for the dusters that have possibly identified candidates in phase #1. Thanks, from getting darker, but not necessarily colder Alaska Hi Poohbahbah, That's a good suggestion, and we are going to generate some statistics on the people who clicked on the ca...

Re: Qualified without taking the test :?:

I went through the tutorial, and on to the intro page for the qualifying test. For some reason, I backed up a page (to double check the movie, I think). When I went back to the intro page, it told me Sorry! You have already passed the Test & Register section. Sure enough, I could get into the Virtu...

Although rather late in the day, can I (at Nikita's encouragement) suggest teachers take a look at my Stardust animation program , as a possible adjunct to the official Powerpoint demonstration, and as a way for you and your pupils to make your own movies. Hi jsmaje, I don't see any problem with th...

Hi fjgiie, Okay, I understand your question now. But I don't really see how you could be scored at all on a movie that you do not click on. You asked how does the server record the coordinates for the last movie viewed if it is not clicked on, and the answer is that it doesn't. If you don't make a c...

Hi you two, I hadn't heard of this problem before. I'll ask Will or Robert to look into this for sure. Can you explain a bit more what you mean, fjgiie? I'm not sure I understood what you meant. If I understand, you are asking what happens to the coordinates from your last click before exiting the V...

Re: Smaller header

Thanks to whomever has recently responded to an old plea in this forum by reducing the height of the VM header, thus sparing the need for repeated scrolling to view the whole movie frame. The thanks go to Robert Letteri and Will Marchant, two of our team with all the technical know-how who had hear...
