Same here, LeeRyder. Once again those are very numerous.

Over 6000 people signed up. The total score of the top 100 on my list is 58714. Assuming that 1:3 ratio, that means so far 176 142 real movies viewed (ignores bad focus). If they only have 30 or 40 thousand movies available right now, that means, on average, each movie has been seen five times. whi...

And yet I'm the one who's been consistently warning/advising people about some of the callibration movies with very small tracks.

lol No no no. Not changing what I saw. I just thought it much better not to describe her as being headless. What would you have thought of me then?!?

So what would you like people's accuracy rate to be? Presumably they are willing to accept a margin of error. Otherwise no movie would be viewed more than once. So where would you like to see the cut off? And if my 99% (keeping in mind the sensitivity(identifying tracks) is still 100% which means m...

Another example, Domic O'Brien. Can memorise over 50 packs of cards. Pretty much inhuman. Doesn't cheat. But it would look like it to anyone else. There are people who have memorised pi to over 40 000 digits. Again, the point to all this is things can sometimes be explained by superior ability and ...

Sigh. The point is that Evans's ability to recognise star fields is SO FAR BEYOND anyone else on the planet that most people would say what he does is impossible. But he DOES it. The connexion to here is, as I and otehrs have said, just because someone sees something as impossible doesn't mean it c...

Umm. No. First of all my success rate is going nowhere but up. (haven't had a miss in ages) And I'm NOT missing 3 in every hundred. Sensitivity Sensitivity measures how well you are able to correctly identify calibration tracks. Sensitivity is the total number of tracks you have correctly identifie...

Close. How about this from wikipedia... amateur astronomer who holds the all-time record for visual discoveries of supernovae (40). He reported 6,814 galaxy observations in a period of 107 hours and 30 minutes, spread out over 77 nights. During that time, he found four supernovae; In his book An An...

Debivort, can't speak to that one specifically (I've tracked a few) but there are a pile of callibration movies that have a VERY small anomoly right near the bottom of the focus. Often these are more obvious (for me anyway) if you move the focus up and down over the last few layers and try to watch...

I don't know... I see someone leaping gracefully through the air, while holding a dog in her right hand.

I said something similar earlier, that I understand why they are there, but they are getting in my way. Oh well.
