I am happy that the calibration movies will be more diverse. I have tried to be both good to picking the calibration movies (though my score is dreadful because it took me quite a long and frustrating time to learn to pick them out) yet truly look for 'interesting' features. It seems from the description that the new scoring system may provide a more appropriate feedback to dusters. I complained back in Ph. 2 that the calibration movies were really training movies but was roundly chastised (twice?) that they were only for calibrating dusters' potential performance, definitely not for training. The intro to Ph. 3, however, agreed with my claim.
It is a shame that there is so much pompus budget slashing resulting in significant cuts to valuable projects plus some really great competition (zooniverse). I hope that we can get through the next couple of years and that the situation will improve. Imagine, taking just 0.1% of the profits of just 1 Wall St. mogul/crook would fund this project for a long time.
