Can I change/remove an answer?

Post by bmendez » Sat Aug 05, 2006 12:46 am

Q: I mistakenly clicked on a movie, can I change/remove my answer?

A: No. Because we first investigate movies with multiple "hits", random errors such as this will not adversely affect our results.

I THINK YOU CAN ! You can return to the last movie while the next one uploads by clicking Back. I found 4 unusual things in one movie, so went back to it 5 times - I also hit Bad Focus on this one, just in case. Stardust Boss - Have I got this right ?

Can I change an answer?

Hi Martin,

Yes, the back button will take you to the previous movie. When you then try to score this same movie for the second time you should receive this message:
You have reached this page via an unusual route, possibly by pressing the back button on your brouser. So your answer to this movie won't be counted.
If this answer is not sufficient, repost next week, and thank you for your observation.

Thanks fjgiiee. ( What sort of name is that ?!) Interestingly I did not see the message " You have reached this page via an unusual route,........" My 5 responses to the one film seemed to go off normally.
