top 100 list

Post by Tom Yahnke, Sr »

I have viewed 12081 real movies as of 2 jan 07 11:45pm. This total does not show on the top 100 list . Why not , or when will it? How often is this list refreshed?

Thanks,

Tom

It will show up when your total score gets that high. They don't rank real movies viewed. The top 100 list is total scores.

ranking error

Post by Tom Yahnke, Sr »

Dear moderator,

My real movie count (once yesterday 12345) is comparable to people ranking around 95. Why am I not showing on the top 100 list yet?

From HERE we see this duster ranked at 92, has 27950 real movies, but score of 11000.
The score is the number beside the nickname in the100 top scores for all Stardust@home volunteers.

Thanks,

Your score is different from the number of real movies viewed. It is the number of calibration movies correctly clicked minus the number of calibration movies incorrectly clicked.

This is explained on the Definitions page.

So, with a real movie count of 12,300 you should have viewed around 4,100 calibration movies by now. If you got 95% of them correct, you should have a score of about 3,900. The score of the person currently ranked 100 is about 11,400, which means that person has most likely viewed about 48,000 movies total and 36,000 real movies.
