Hi renu_krs.

You can determine if you are the first by checking your MyEvents page after you have clicked on a candidate; if it shows the number of agreements as "1", that is YOU!

Hope that helps.

There are new movies added periodically- we've still got a way to go... and then there are the 'bad focus' movies that have to be re-scanned, so you will have plenty of opportunity.

See you in the dust mines!

Hi renu_krs. Bear in mind that you have to actually check your "My Events" immediately after you click on a track to see if you are the first. If you look later others may have also clicked on it and the number will no longer be a 1.

I jus checked the home page, it says only the discoverer will be the co-author and will have naming rights. Not all even if they find the particle. am i right? Could u pls check and confirm......

The first person to find a track and click on it that leads to a particle gets it.

This is correct. Only the primary person to discover (click on) the particle will have naming rights and/or inclusion in the paperwork. All secondary clicks merely confirm the findings of the first.
