cleo, it is easy to spot alot of the callibration movies. Just don't get to used to it. There are some similar features in real movies. Might not seem as often, but that's also because we are seeing so many of the limited callibration movies. I hope what they do over the coming weeks is take sample...

Given the numbers should be around 25% it would make more sense to have the poll choices include more in the 20-30 range, and exclude 80's and 90's and such.

Follow up, that movie is now listed twice in MyEvents. But the #oa appears to have gone up (I've been watching those during down time ;-) )

double dipping in agreements

Another possible confounding variable. I just flagged a possible particle in a movie. Thing is, I recognised that movie from before. And I flagged it previously. Which means TWO of the "number of agreements" (#oa) will be me. On one hand it's good that we are being checked against ourselves (if you...

Cheers, Sharqua. With all the time here you'd think I'd have heard that. I recall someone saying some of the MyEvents movies appeared different from when they flagged them (I feel that way about one or two of mine!) but hadn't heard about the callibration movies. Other than glitches... 4x! :(

Emission, mentioned before, but at one time I was able to have four windows opened at once, so others would be loading while I was looking. And I just cycled through them. I can't do that anymore. So now, at times (even with high speed connexion) I still find myself waiting. It's a nuisance. I'd ra...

witnix, there are a callibration movies that seem to be set up incorrectly. Though in this one I can't say I see what you are referring to. The glitches have been mentioned in numerous threads. Just shrug and go on (I've had one in particular ding me four times!)

Unfortunately, a little too late. Maxim's score has not budged since he said he was stepping away. That was precisely why I was being so adamant about the accusations. If he was someone just trying to do a good job, then he was bullied away. (I'm sure a bully would say something about him just suck...

A set of threads specific to movie numbers would cut down on new threads each and every time someone finds something they think is a track. Check out... 10000-14999 Check out... 15000-19999 Or somesuch. <shrugs> I'd like to see a list somewhere of all the movies people have considered suspect. It m...

Buddha, chin up! And keep it up, and be warned, there are some tracks in some of the callibration movies that are VERY small.

Slide s 3 & 4 in the tutorial talk about aerogel and dust as explanations for some bright spots.

Yes. If you flag a possible track, just check your MyEvent section right away and you'll see whether #oa=1, meaning you were the furst to ID.
