Elaine - I have seen the same thing. Very visible box with a speck in it, I clicked it, scored me as a wrong choice. Another slide very visible box, nothing in it, I selected no track, and it registered as a live movie (not a callibration).

Hi Diamond Girl...do you think they're trying to trick us? LOL. Maybe, since the boxes are so visible, they decided to insert a few randomly to throw us off. They want to make sure we're looking for tracks, not boxes. Well, it's working!

By the way, I loved your poem! Very clever!

Here is a smile that will bite you,HeeHee :P

go down the focus bar and three very nice dark spots start to come out and the bottom left one looks like a good score but it marks you wrong,After study of this movie I found on the lip looking part a square with the smallest dot ever,I'm guessing it is the target I should have hit.

I might have gone for the bottom left too, but yes, that little speck is what you should have clicked. You can see where they photoshopped it in if you look closely on some of the higher up slides.

Hiya Titanium,

Yea I got in a hurry with that one and clicked the wrong spot,I've taken to checking the movies three or four times before I click the spot I think I should, Just to be sure I'm not missing these tiny specks the team is throwing into the CM's.
Thing is I'm finding lots of tiny specks and I find myself taking lots more time on stuff I don't need to, and when I can't tell do to focus or just plain can't tell if it's one to click or not, I find myself hitting the bad focus button more.
I hate doing this because when you hit the bad focus button you will get many more bad focus movies one after the other, and On dial up land lines it costs lots of time waiting for down loads of the next movies.

These bad focus movies need to be pulled out after say 5-10 bad focus hits to make way for more research. :idea: It would save bandwidth for the site also!!!

Happy dusting,Good Luck!
. <----there is a spot click it. :lol:

Hi, Elaine. :)
Yes, they are absolutely trying to trick us. And it's working!!! LOL
The easy going side of me is at war with the perfectionist, who is very unhappy with some of the dings - but happy side usually beats back the perfectionist. :wink:
Glad you liked the poem. I was thinking of taking requests for one to do next - maybe something about all the tricky test slides!
