+55 score within 14 minutes

Post by goesser »

I watched the top 100 for some time and recognized a user whos score increased by 55 points within 14 minutes.

Thats one point every 15 seconds..
How can that be?

It took me several hours to get 140 points.

Like I said in another thread, some of the callibration movies I can ID in about a second, that drives the average down big time. Do the math, if you like. And for what it's worth, my progress today has been with only window as I still get that error message if I have more than one open.

I am sure they have 5 or so people all working the same account.

Sigh. Conspiracy theories and anti-intellectualism abounds. Do you people know who the Reverend Robert Evans is?

Let's see, by being diligent and committed I managed (in one window) to get through over 250 real movies, and increased my score by almost 100 over the last hour or so. This while maintaining my 100%/89%

Once again I'll suggest that maybe some people deserve being commended for their efforts and the world would be a better place if we spent some time propping them up rather than suggesting they be dragged down.

I think connection speed has something to do with this as well. My connection was really slow last night, and I'd spend longer waiting for the next film to load than I did looking at the last film. If you have a fast connection, you can probably get through them pretty quickly.

How do you check out the top 100?

Post by cczernia »

Hye all,

Just wondering what the link is to view the top 100 ranked observers?

Cheers!

some stats

Post by goesser »

I don't want to post the name of the user here, maybe just the counting-system lagged.

In the last 60 minutes the top 3 score-gain within the top 100 - users was +77, +83 and +95 (for anyone who's interested :wink: )

Clearly some people can sustain checking movies at a fast rate of say 8-10 seconds per movie(including retrieval time). But it is also clearly impossible for one person to continuously and legitimatly check movies in 3-4 seconds(including retrieval) over an hours time. This doesn't mean they are cheating by just clicking through or something, it could mean they just have more than one person working on the same account. In the end it doesn't matter as long as the movies are checked correctly.

It would suck if you find what might be a legitimate track, only to have it re-checked by those who wizz by and do not spot the 2 millimeter wide partical. Then the frame would be lost forever.

nexguy - Thats what im scared of. If you check the poll called "two tracks in one movie" or something similar, you can see a movie with 2 tracks (or have the properties of tracks) which noone else spots.

Only myself and the thread starter said they saw the tracks :shock: :shock:

Millimeters would be VERY easy to spot, as they would be larger than the picture. ;)

Hmm... two millimeters. No one could miss one THAT big. :wink:

Again back to speeds, in 15 minutes

Callibration Correct +28
Callibration Incorrect +1 :(
Score +26 (that would be over 100 per hour)
Real Viewed +44
Still 100%/89%

Hmm... More "I think you're cheating" threads. Oh well... All I can say once again:

1 Person (me)
1 Puter
5Mb cable connection
1 21" Monitor = 2 windows at once = 1 page loads while I work on the other.

Personal Experience: Former Micron Tech. metrology/defect analysis operator.

You want numbers, put in more effort. That's all I do.

Take care.
