Hi, Brian. :)
I was just wondering, for Phase 2, does this still apply? Do we know that if we see a score of 1 that we are the first person to select a potential track, or are there any that were in Phase 1 as potentials and we are just confirming with the better scans?

Signed,
Interested and Excited because I think I found one...

Hi DiamondGirl,

Good questions, I'm not completely sure how this will be handled. I'll dubble check with the team.

There are new movies in phase 2 that haven't been seen before and then there are high resolution versions of movies that have been seen before. So, there will be a chance that even if you appear to be the first to click on a feature in phase 2, it could be a feature that was clicked on previously in phase 1 (and that first clicker will be the one given the opportunity to name it, should it be something real). I don't know if we've got a way to indicate this yet in the My Events page.

I'll get back to you...

Thanks,
-Bryan

high angle track at 1:30, =19505, this first

Does this mean that the track is there and that I am the 1st to click
