Will grading accuracy be better.....SIGINT1

SIGINT1, My main point was too subtle. That is, being graded wrong consistently may so discourage and confuse the duster that he/she becomes ineffective. It almost did that to me. In Oct. 2006, I got charged with seven "errors" close together, all recorded wrong I found out later. At the time, I tho...

Will Grading accuracy be better in Phase II ????

Stardust Team, In Phase II, will the accuracy of your grading system be improved? If not, then how will new members learn the difference between tracks, inclusions and dust particles? When I first joined in Aug. 2006, I paid close attention to how you graded my answers. Those you listed as Correct w...

Post your stats - thanks to fjgiie

Oh, fjgiie, You have brought tears to my eyes. That flower is so beautiful, I'll copy it off and keep it with my Stardust files. I have my daily records since August 11, 2006 and plan to make a scrapbook of them. Your contributions to the Forums have been a great help to me, and they will go into my...

Post your stats

Now that Phase One of Stardust will end soon (7-26-07), I will post my stats for the last time. I'm ashamed of my errors (191) but at the time I signed on in August 2006, the Stardust Team encouraged us to click on "exciting" or "different" images in movies. Nearly all of them had something "excitin...

Twas the night before stardust........Ron C. Spencer

Funny poem, Ron, You must be having FUN dusting! My anticipation was the same as yours, only my clock was one minute faster, and I had to wait 4 minutes before I could begin clicking again.

Thanks for the laugh, I'm having fun, too.

fjgiie, re: spider mites

Thanks, fjgiie,

I keep running into you all over this site! I didn't realize you'd seen and posted it before. Shucks, now, I thought it was alien life! :-}

I've found a ... cute, funny... movie

This movie has a very interesting image in upper left quadrant. It looks exactly like a spider sitting on a web. She even has 8 legs. Could this possibly be a tiny mite or spider? http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ss_virtual_microscope.php?frame=-1&next_movie=6233597V1&ondeck_movie=795020V1-&no...

Titanium - small track question

No, Titanium, I've not run across a track smaller than the one I sent you, either in Calibrated Movies or Real Movies. When we click on a particle in CMs, our scores increase one point. When we click on a possible-interstellar-dust-particle in Real Movies, it is sent to "MY Events," where it awaits ...

small track question - Titanium

Titanium, I could not find a track in your movie. I believe they are all specks, not tracks. Small tracks come into focus near the bottom, and they are "clearer" than the dots around them. Small tracks, to me, always have a light center, and most have a satillite "dot" beside them---as you scoll, a ...

Calibrations consistently counted wrong

Fjgiie made an interesting observation: He's never had his "Incorrect" list LOWERED through and "error." Neither have I. I have kept meticulous records of every movie viewed since I began dusting on August 11, 2006. My 3-ring notebook is stuffed nearly full of daily dusting records since that time. ...

Reply to Ron C. Spencer & others--CMs graded wrong

Thanks to Ron C. Spenser for his support, and to all the others who wrote about the CMs being graded wrong. I had made the decision to QUIT dusting all together last evening when every CM I viewed was counted as "incorrect," and the BACK button on my browser returned the wrong sample to me. I almost...

calibration movies consistently graded wrong

NOPE- that last one is not the one I was counted wrong on and copied either. So, I guess I'll have to forget it. ERSTRS
